All the other seasons get a good supply of horror flicks. Summer has Sleepaway Camp and the other summer camp slashers, Stand by Me and the other “loneliness of childhood” films, and all the end-of-school flicks from Prom Night to The Boys Next Door. Fall has the Halloween movies, of course–if you want an entry into that field which may be new to you, check out the “Hallowe’en Party” episode of Agatha Christie’s Poirot, which is quite dark and has incredible, spooky Halloween atmosphere. And winter is just an avalanche of snowbound, frostbitten terror.
Are there any candidates I’m forgetting?
