THE WEEKEND STARTS HERE:

...STREAMING FROM THE CASTLE EAST! This fan-made 1973 video for "The Monster Mash" is today's must-see clip (natch), though you can also see Bobby "Boris" Pickett perform it live at Little Steven's Halloween a Go-Go 2005. The covers by The Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band and The Misfits are pretty good also -- the latter uses clips from the Rankin-Bass animated classic, Mad Monster Party.

THE SHAGGS: It's Halloween!

JIM CARROLL (deceased) sings about "People Who Died."

KISS got their first television exposure in 1976 on The Paul Lynde Halloween Special. (At ~26:00, though the whole thing is scary in its own way.)

"DO THEY KNOW IT'S HALLOWEEN?" is the all-star charity send-up of Band-Aid's "Do They Know It's Christmas?" featuring Roky Erikson, Elvira, plus members from Arcade Fire, Sonic Youth, Smoosh, Rilo Kiley, Sparks and many more.

52 HORROR RELEASES from the Free Music Archive.

HALLOWEEN A/V: The Talking Heads' "Psycho Killer," Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Bad Moon Rising," Echo & the Bunnymen's "The Killing Moon,"  Santana's "Black Magic Woman", The Ramones' "Pet Sematary," Alice Cooper's "Welcome to My Nightmare," Siouxsie & the Banshees' "Halloween," The Eagles' "Witchy Woman," Tegan & Sara's "Walking With a Ghost," Stevie Wonder's "Superstition," Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds' "Red Right Hand," AC/DC's "Hell's Bells," The Cramps' "Goo Goo Muck," Blue Oyster Cult's "Don't Fear The Reaper (More Cowbell)," Tom Waits' "Cemetery Polka," The Edgar Winter Group's "Frankenstein," and Oingo Boingo's "Dead Man's Party."  And, of course... Screamin' Jay Hawkins.

THE ROLLING STONES' "Sympathy For The Devil" from the David Frost Show just plain amuses me. Monty Python makes much more sense when you know most of them once wrote for Frost.

WARREN ZEVON: A live trifecta of "Werewolves of London," "Excitable Boy" and "Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner."

THOMAS DOLBY: How about the mad vibe of "She Blinded Me With Science"?

HENRI MANCINI: "Experiment in Terror." A sentimental favorite to those who grew up watching "Creature Features" on WGN before it went superstation.

THE TIME WARP: Let's do it again.

NOW SHOWING: This weekend's wide releases include Jigsaw, which was not screened for critics; Suburbicon, which is currently scoring 33 percent on the ol' Tomatometer; and Thank You For Your Service, scoring 72 percent.

AND NOW: A Sophisticated Man About Town. Super-duper.

GRIM GRINNING GHOSTS, from the Haunted Mansion.

"THRILLER": The original 13-minute Jacko classic, plus the filipino prisoners.

IT'S THE GREAT PUMPKIN, CHARLIE BROWN is viewable at ABC. Also, Rifftrax is available. The WaPo has 7 Things You Don't Know about the perennial Peanuts classic. Vox thinks it's a Christmas special. And master troll Andrew Stiles finds the whole thing very problematic.

15 FACTS ABOUT HALLOWEEN: I counted more than that.  AND FIVE THINGS you may not know about Halloween.

THE TOP 10 SCI-FI HORROR FLICKS, according to Forbes.

THE 25 SCARIEST OPENING SCENES in horror-movie history, according to The A/V Club.
