At last week's party, we remembered the late, great Gene Wilder - in all his goofy glory.

This week, we're gearing up for the big spook day and highlighting scary movies.

I actually despise horror movies, but I do occasionally enjoy a thriller...

Not even touching the movies of this guy, because his stuff's just genius!



First off, I think I've only actually seen one true horror movie in my life (although I'm pretty sure I couldn't escape portions of Friday the 13th growing up - because it was everywhere):



I'll never forget my screams and squirms as I watched this:



Here's another one with a looney-tunes woman:


I don't even know if I could handle watching this one again:


The house from this might still be my favorite - although I'd stick it in the mountains, instead of on the beach:


And then there's a whole stream of Kirk Douglas movies that freaked me out:








But the most memorable thriller to me was this:


Because who could even imagine Hans Solo/Jack Ryan/Indiana Jones as a bad guy?





Now, on to the link-up!

The featured post for Syncopated Mama this week is........




Shelly's done it again and gone and written all the thoughts in my head about unschooling!  I went on a rant in the comments section on her blog (not at her, of course), but basically I just loved how she pointed out that unschooling doesn't mean you turn your brain off, hand over your parent card, or have to lock yourself in a compound and become the newest cult member.

There are so many wonderful aspects to unschooling, which you can take advantage of without keeping your hands completely off your kids at the same time.  Go read her post for more!
