1976 Kenny and Co

Kenny & Company is a 1976 American comedy-drama film directed by Don Coscarelli, who also made the Phantasm series of horror films. It stars A. Michael Baldwin and Reggie Bannister (who would later star in Phantasm and sequels), Dan McCann as Kenny A., Jeff Roth as Sherman, Ralph Richmond as Big Doug, and Clay Foster as Mr. Brink.

Several days in the life of Kenny, a typical 12-year-old, and his friends. Kenny goes through all the activities that most of us went through as kids as he and his friends prepare for Halloween. Along the way, Kenny deals with such childhood issues as bullies and his first crush on a girl. Like most of the other videos I posted this year, this film is on DVD but because it's out of print, it costs more than it's worth. It's currently for sale on Amazon for $150 and up.

1991 Joe Bob's Drive-In Theater - Horror Hosts Hall of Fame Month

Before Joe Bob Briggs hosted Montervision on TNT, he appeared on Joe Bob's Drive-In Theater from 1991-1995 on pay TV station The Movie Channel where he hosted B-grade flicks giving background information about each one. I wrote about Monstervision and Joe Bob Briggs here during last year's Countdown to Halloween.

In 1991, the month of October was devoted to Horror Hosts Hall of Fame on Drive-In Theater. Joe Bob interviewed four legendary horror hosts including John Zacherle (Zacherley), Ernie Anderson (Ghoulardi), John Stanley, and Elvira. Looks like this copy was recorded from a master tape.

1986 Mr. Boogedy and 1987 Bride Of Boogedy presented by FearNET

Mr. Boogedy is a 1986 made-for-tv family film, which was followed up by a 1987 sequel called Bride of Boogedy. Both were directed by Oz Scott and written by Michael Janover, and both originally aired as an episode of "The Disney Sunday Movie."

These two videos were ripped from a 2013 FearNET broadcast that were cropped and reformatted for HD 16:9 Screens. FearNET was a horror entertainment TV network, website and video on demand service owned by Comcast that featured a mix of acquired and original series, and feature films. The channel closed/went dark on July 30, 2014 at 11:59pm.

Mr. Boogedy is about a novelty-salesman who moves his family into a new house. Initially dismissing incidents as more of their father's practical jokes, the family soon learns that the house is haunted by people who lived in the house 300 years previously.

Bride of Boogedy focuses on the same family with a great love for practical jokes as they are haunted by the family of the ghost Mr. Boogedy.

2004 Lil Creepers

Lil Creepers is a 24 minute animated special with 2 short segments. The first is called 'Tricks or Tricks' which follows Sam and Melly as they go trick or treating with their new friends, only to be terrorized by the local bully, a zombie named Eddie. In the second short 'Bela's Bash', the gang celebrates Bela's birthday at his Transylvania-style mansion with morbid games like Pin the Tail on the Ogre. Eddie the Zombie tries once again to ruin the Lil Creepers' fun, but he gets a taste of his own evil medicine instead.

I'll describe this as a combination of Rugrats mixed with the Classic Universal Monsters but with bad animation. The stories are uncomfortably slow at times and not very funny as well, but let's remember that it's made for children who really don't care what they watch. I would recommend this to anyone with kids from 1-6. Released to DVD and VHS in 2004.
