What's everyone doing / watching on Halloween?

I haven't decided yet myself.

Ikea's latest commercial makes me want to see "The Shining" again.
Hahaha, I hate when soul-sucking commercials that just want your money are actually funny. :)
Hanging with my dog and grandfather, after I get home from work. Will probably watch some "Last Man Standing," and see what help I can provide around here. Halloween has not really been something I do, for the last few years. Though, clowns rule, and I could see them everyday of my life and not get sick of them.

CoziTV is having a "One Step Beyond" marathon that I hope to watch a lot of. I might dig up some videotapes to fill up with episodes since it starts at 9 a.m.

I won't be up till much later because I'm a night owl. I'm launching my Halloween watch now with TCM:
House on Haunted Hill (1959)
The Legend of Hell House
13 Ghosts (1960)
The Haunting (1963)
Burnt Offerings

Each of these I have seen at least 100 times and never tire of them! In fact, I watched TCM's airing of "The Haunting" several days ago and love that it's being repeated! However, I wish that TCM had substituted "Legend" with a couple of William Castle's other frightfests, especially "The Tingler" and perhaps "Mr. Sardonicus".

EDIT: Oh! I just now noted that, at 3 a.m., Fox Movie Channel will show "The Cabinet of Caligari" (1962) starring Glynis Johns. I might bail out of "Burnt Offerings" early in favor of that since I've never seen it all the way through. Knowing the ending doesn't bother me obviously.

Perhaps I should check some other channels for what they're coming up with. // Hmmm... Chiller Channel will show "Happy Birthday to Me". Maybe that's the winner since I haven't seen it since it aired on HBO in the Eighties.
The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920)
The Thing (1951)
Psycho (1960)
The Exorcist (1973)
Halloween (1978)
The Shinning (1980)
Friday The 13th (1980)
The Evil Dead (1981)
The Thing (1984)
A Nightmare On Elm Street (1984)
The Silence Of The Lambs (1991)
Hannibal (2001)
The Ring (2002)
28 Days Later (2002)
Saw (2004)
The Decent (2005)
Halloween (2007)
The Human Centipede (2009)
Friday The 13th (2009)
The Thing (2011)
Evil Dead (2013)

And one of the seasons of American Horror Story; Just me and my girl, a carton of cigarettes in her hand, and a bag of Doritos in mine, maybe with a little teenage love if things get a little boring. This will be the best Halloween yet!
