Blacula Movie PosterIs your Halloween film rotation shaping up to be just more of the same films you watched the rest of the year? Can’t seem to make a play list that’s not just the latest hot films mixed in with the well worn classics? Maybe you need try a few of these for a spin in your home entertainment setup’s player of choice.

Seen your favorite vampire films 100 times or more already? Maybe it’s time to try Blacula.

Unless you have a buddy who’s really into the local indie music scene throwing a party, odds are you’re only around 15 days into October before you’ve heard pretty much every song you’ll hear on every playlist you’re near at least 100 times.
