A couple days ago, I was in the store and noticed that Halloween stuff was already starting to go on display. One of my favorite things at Halloween time is watching all of the scary movies the different television networks schedule. I love horror movies, and I've watched with interest over the last few years as some independent filmmakers have chosen to come to our area and shoot their projects. Here are three horror films with local ties.
What movies make you cry every time you watch them? I was listening to a speaker on a conference call talk about how he cried while watching 'Toy Story 3.' I'll admit, that was a title I wasn't expecting. There are movies out there that can bring even the toughest among us to tears, even after watching them multiple times. I did a Google search on the subject and found several online lists naming the biggest tearjerkers. Here are some of the most common titles that seem to appear over and over.
2014 will mark the tenth anniversary of The Marion County Health Department's Halloween Parade in Hannibal. This year the parade is scheduled for Saturday, October 25. It will begin at 6:30 p.m. The parade route is from Grand Avenue and Broadway to the end of Main Street.
It's been a lot of fun sitting in on the Y101 morning show for the past week. It's also been enlightening in several ways. Here are some things I learned while spending time with Dennis and the Big Dog.
We're going to give away passes to 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off,' which is showing at Main Street Cinema 8 in Hannibal as part of their Retro Night series. A few weeks back, the theater had 'Dirty Dancing' at Retro Night. Both of those movies are favorites with a TON of people, and are often listed as movies that fans have watched over and over again. What are the movies you've watched a million (slight exaggeration) times, and could watch a million times more? Here is a list of ours.
The 6th annual Cadan's Carnival Halloween event will take place October 19 at the Quincy Knights of Columbus. The carnival is held in memory of Cadan Christopher Frericks, son of Tiffany and Rome Frericks, who passed away only weeks after his birth due to complications from Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH), a birth defect where the diaphragm does not properly form, allowing the abdominal organs to move up into the chest. The carnival is held in Cadan's honor, and raises awareness of CDH and funds for CDH research. Cadan's mom, Tiffany, was kind enough to give us a few moments of her time for an interview.
The Hannibal Jaycees Haunted House will open for the season on October 3. There will be several new features this year, including an outdoor maze and Zombie Paintball! Advance tickets for the haunted house are now available online.
I was listening to BBC News on my way to work when I heard something that was pretty unexpected. When doing a report on Russia and Ukraine - which is a fairly serious topic - I was somewhat taken aback when journalist John Sweeney mentioned that Vladimir Putin looked sort of waxy, as if he had just had Botox... or something. So of course I had to track down the video to see for myself.
