Halloween Costume Trivia Jam - 8p @Barmacy - Free Trivia, Candy, More!


COSTUME PARTY TONIGHT!
Prizes for all in costume!

Over the years, I have watched my fair share of horror films.

Sturgeon's Law posits that at least 90 % of them were crud.

I'd put it closer to about 95%.

Many of the ones I have enjoyed had some humor or heart to them.
Many went from horror to just dumb goofs.

These are some of the ones I love.

Here's a few:








Bad Taste (1986)


Evil Dead II (1987)




Fright Night (1985)




Tonight's PRESHOW Q (here AND the FB page):

 
Tonight is a COSTUME PARTY!
Every member of your team who is in costume will give your team one entry into a drawing for various prizes.
 
Be there, in costume by 8 pm for a shot at prizes!
