Invaders From Mars
yeah, massive bummer this year. As a kid I always loved it when Halloween fell on a Friday or Saturday.
Good question about the kids in danger. Im trying to think of some horror films from the 50s with kids in them but am drawing a blank. The only thing that comes to mind is Cape Fear from about 1961. The very palpable threat from Max Katy to the daughter Nancy was really pushing things as far as they could go.
had a child lead. It was more fantasy than horror but it had a couple of creepy moments. Nothing like the image in the banner.
