I recently got this ""Oh baby enough! I got bored of Halloween posts." I usually am the one to back down on strong requests like this... but the whole reason and intention for doing this is because Halloween is a fun time of the year and I know, myself, would have enjoyed seeing a person's daily update on their favorite Halloween things to watch. These do take a while to put together but if at least one person reads them. They are worth it. and besides, its my account. The Mytakes belong to me. If all I get is a couple of people saying cool, I will check that out. It makes it all worth it to me.
I do feel bad that people have to click on them just to get rid of them that follow me and for that, I am sorry for that inconvenience. But this goes back to when I was a kid. Getting movies at the video store.
getting excited when me and my brother had a handful of scary movies that we could watch with each other.
Ever since it has been a fun past time for me that I wanted to partly share in a series of mytakes for fun. It is like a journal if you will of my past. Something for me to share. and to be fair I can share up to 5 mytakes everyday... I am only sharing one a day. I am sorry if that upsets you.
The Halloween Tree - 1993
For me what makes this movie great is the fact that it talks about some parts of the history of Halloween and it is simply so beautifully animated with a great story. It has based off a book but the way it was told and animated was nicely done. Here I are some pictures and here is a quick summery of the movie.
"The Halloween Tree is a 1993 animated fantasy-drama television movie produced by Hanna-Barbera and based on Ray Bradbury's 1972 fantasy novel of the same name. The film tells the story of a group of trick-or-treating children who learn about the origins and influences of Halloween when one of their friends is spirited away by mysterious forces. The Halloween Tree stars Ray Bradbury as the narrator and Leonard Nimoy as the children's guide, Mr. Moundshroud. Bradbury also wrote the film's Emmy Award winning screenplay. The animation of the film was produced overseas for Hanna-Barbera by Fil-Cartoons in the Philippines. The film premiered on ABC on October 2, 1993.
The movie is often featured on Cartoon Network during the Halloween season. The film changes the novel's group of night travelers from eight boys to three boys and a girl. A longer limited edition "author's preferred text" of the novel was published in 2005, which included the screenplay."
