Every year on Halloween, my apartment is shining with peculiar charm as I join my protracted-suffering girlfriend (including a little collection of friends) for a night of classic horror films. The standard suspects all get an outing, (those same ones we’ve consistantly watched), like the initial F.W Murnau ‘Nosferatu’, ‘The Shining’, ‘Ring’ (The Hideo Nakata version, of course) and others still.
Clutching tightly onto out bowls of popcorn or bags of candy, we all meet round and try to get worked up about movies we have watched a billion times before.
It is now a tradition that goes back to my youthful days, when I lived with my dad and mom. Back then, Halloween was a great deal, we’d coat the home with spooky decorations (usually acquired very inexpensively several weeks after the previous year’s festivities).
Rubber spiders, cardboard skeletons and this cobwebby stuff that just sticks on you (and doesn’t go away for months) would adorn both the inside and out of doors of my parents’ home. We were fortunate enough to live not far away to an American Lady who frequently cooked (and shared) the best pumpkin pie I’ve ever tasted.
We would go ‘Trick or Treat-ing’ when we were small, of course, but switched to collecting for charity as we got older. We collected for Cancer Research, Parkinson’s Disease and, in 2001, we raised a nice little amount for those families of 9/11 victims, I’m always proud of that.
In the past; the horror movies would start early, habitually with one of the many, many (many) ‘Halloween’ sequels. Then, we would improve to something else (my brother and I are pretty huge followers of Mark Pellington’s wickedly underrated 2002 film ‘The Mothman Prophecies’). Our neighbour’s kids would frequently come over for a hotdog and many complimentary sweets, so we always needed to pause these films right at the good bits!
Why am I revealing you all this? Well, mainly I desire to let you know all this as if I had a Panasonic 32 inch Television, Halloween is even better for 2013 and every year thereafter. Yeah, I am selling the thing, but I am doing this in an original and fascinating way, so just do me the favour and read to the end.
What is so unique regarding the Panasonic 32-Inch Smart tv?, I hear you ask, well, in addition to having a whopping 32 inch display (in full 1080P HD, no less), this modern Television from market leaders Panasonic includes built-in WiFi, so me and my friends could scare themselves viewing the Youtube app for ‘Ghost Caught on Tape’ or such like.
The super-slim design for this telly ensures that it will fit simply into my flat, enabling us to reinforce the evening’s celebrations by tempting yet more mates.
To sum up, a spooky Halloween night full of chills, thrills and (necessarily with my friends) spills, will be so completely enhanced by this TV’s incredible visuals, crisp, atmospheric sounds and also the eye-popping (literally in the case of perennial Samhain fave ‘Evil Dead II’) rendering of lighting tricks, that I just felt compelled to inform you about it here.
More apps than you are able to shake an apple ipad at and more features than you possibly can shake a DVD box set at (plus much more article clichés than it is possible to shake a Halloween-obsessed hack at), make this a heck of a Television to have…On any night of our october.
