Yearly on Halloween, my flat is radiant with creepy excitement as I join my sustained-suffering girlfriend (plus a little collection of friends) for the night of classic horror films. The usual suspects all get an excursion, (similarly ones we have consistantly watched), like the original F.W Murnau ‘Nosferatu’, ‘The Shining’, ‘Ring’ (The Hideo Nakata version, obviously) and others still.
Clutching tightly on out bowls of popcorn or bags of candy, many of us gather round and try to get worked up about movies we have viewed a billion times previous.
It’s a tradition that goes back to my more youthful days, when I still lived with my mom and dad. Back then, Halloween was a huge deal, we would plaster the home with spooky decoration (usually bought very inexpensively a couple of weeks after the prior year’s festivities).
Rubber spiders, cardboard skeletons and this cobwebby kit that just sticks on you (and doesn’t go away for weeks) would adorn both the inside and outside of my parents’ house. We were fortunate enough to survive nearby to an American Lady who often cooked (and shared) the most effective pumpkin pie I’ve ever tasted.
We’d go ‘Trick or Treat-ing’ when we were small, not surprisingly, but switched to gathering up for charity as we got older. We collected for Cancer Research, Parkinson’s Disease and, in 2001, we raised a tidy little sum for those people of 9/11 victims, I’m always pleased with that.
Back then; the horror films would start off early, typically with one of those many, many (many) ‘Halloween’ sequels. Then, we’d improve to something else (my cousin and I are very large followers of Mark Pellington’s criminally underrated 2002 film ‘The Mothman Prophecies’). Our neighbour’s kids would often come over for a hotdog and some free candy, so we always needed to pause these movies right at the good bits!
Why am I telling you all this? Well, mainly I need to tell you all this as if I had a Panasonic 32-Inch Smart tv, Halloween would be even better for 2013 and every year thereafter. Yeah, I’m selling the thing, but I’m doing so in an original and appealing way, so just do me the favour and read to the end.
What’s so special regarding the Panasonic 32 inch TV?, I hear you ask, well, besides having a whopping 32-Inch display (in full 1080P HD, no less), this innovative new Television from market leaders Panasonic features built-in WiFi, so me and my mates could scare ourselves watching the Youtube app for ‘Ghost Caught on Tape’ or such like.
The super-slim design for the telly means that it will fit simply into my flat, enabling us to reinforce the evening’s festivities by tempting yet more mates.
To sum up, a spooky Halloween evening full of chills, thrills and (necessarily with my friends) spills, will be so seriously improved by this Television’s incredible visuals, crisp, atmospheric noises and the eye-popping (literally in the case of perennial Samhain fave ‘Evil Dead II’) rendering of special effects, that I just felt compelled to let you know about it here.
More apps than it is possible to shake an apple ipad at plus much more features than you may shake a DVD box set at (and much more article clichés than you are able to shake a Halloween-obsessed hack at), make this a heck of a TV to have…On any night of our october.
