Boo! Hollywood’s Great Thrillers

Let’s face it, movie-goers love things that go bump in the night; those moments that make the little hairs spring to attention on the back of our necks.

In this presentation lastinging a little over an hour, Larry uses PowerPoint images and film clips to illustrate the power of good filmmakers to scare us half to death.

And he’ll discusses why we like it so much.  Cases in point:  The moment in “Wait Until Dark” when the very bad guy leaps out of nowhere and the classic “Alien” birthing scene, of course.

But also moments of intense tension in Alfred Hitchcock classics (“Psycho,” “Rear Window,” “North by Northwest”) and others.

Me, too.  I can remember when a half gallon of Blue Bell was $2.99, or on sale for 3-for-$5.  That's at least a dollar less than what they're getting for a pint now.  If my math is right, there are four pints in a half gallon.  Shouldn't a pint be about $2.25?  Of course not.  That would make too much sense, and, apparently, way too little cents.

What, that's not what shocked you?  Must be the Halloween candy.  The best bargain in town this week has to be leftover Halloween candy.  One of those giant gut-buster bags of bite-sized morsels such as BabyRuths, Whoppers, KitKats and Butterfingers, my personal favorite, are marked down to half-price now.  That means only 25 or 30 bucks a bag.
