Yearly on Halloween, my home is radiant with peculiar excitement as I join my long-suffering girlfriend (including a little assortment of our friends) for the night of typical horror films. The standard suspects all get an excursion, (those same ones we have always watched), like the initial F.W Murnau ‘Nosferatu’, ‘The Shining’, ‘Ring’ (The Hideo Nakata edition, of course) and others still.
Clutching tightly onto out bowls of popcorn or bags of sweets, all of us meet round and try to get worked up about films we’ve watched a billion times previous.
It’s a tradition that dates back to my more youthful days, when I lived with my mom and dad. In the past, Halloween was a great deal, we would coat the home with spooky decorations (usually acquired very inexpensively a couple of weeks after the prior year’s celebrations).
Rubber spiders, cardboard skeletons and this cobwebby stuff that just sticks on you (and does not go away for months) would adorn both the within and outdoors of my parents’ home. We were blessed enough to live next door to an American Lady who often cooked (and shared) the most effective pumpkin pie I’ve ever tasted.
We would go ‘Trick or Treat-ing’ when we were small, not surprisingly, but switched to gathering up 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 people of 9/11 victims, I’m always pleased with that.
Back then; the horror films would start early, typically with one of the many, many (many) ‘Halloween’ sequels. Then, we’d upgrade to something else (my brother and I are very huge fans of Mark Pellington’s unlawfully underrated 2002 film ‘The Mothman Prophecies’). Our neighbour’s youngsters would frequently come over for a hotdog and some free candy, so we always had to pause these movies right at the good bits!
Why am I telling you all this? Well, mostly I need to tell you all this because if I had a Panasonic 32 inch Television, Halloween is even better for this year and every year thereafter. Yeah, I am selling the thing, but I am doing this in an original and interesting way, so just do me the favour and carry on to the end.
What’s so extraordinary about the Panasonic 32 inch Television?, I hear you ask, well, in addition to developing a whopping 32-Inch screen (in full 1080P HD, no less), this modern Television from market leaders Panasonic features built-in WiFi, so me and my associates could scare themselves watching the Youtube app for ‘Ghost Caught on Tape’ or such like.
The super-slim design for the television ensures that it would fit easily into my apartment, allowing us to reinforce the evening’s celebrations by inviting yet more mates.
To sum up, a spooky Halloween night full of chills, thrills and (inescapably with my mates) spills, will be so completely improved by this TV’s wonderful visuals, crisp, atmospheric noises and the eye-popping (literally in the case of perennial Samhain fave ‘Evil Dead II’) rendering of special effects, that I just felt compelled to tell you about it here.
More applications than you’ll be able to shake an iPad at and more features than it is possible to shake a DVD box set at (and much more article clichés than you’ll be able to shake a Halloween-obsessed hack at), make this a heck of a TV to have…On any night of our year.
