All heads turn when the hunt rides by

A happy Samhain to all, and to all a good night. The ubiquitous Halloween lists are creeping across newspapers and blogs across the globe like mold after a basement flood — scariest movies, best Dracula, etc.

And so my thoughts turned to scary titles: to me, often the creepiest part of a book or story or movie, and the most evocative — reading the story hasn't yet spoiled the tale's promise. So, while I've never in fact read John Farris's "All Heads Turn When the Hunt Rides By," I've been suitably creeped out by the title that I've never been able to forget it. "Carnival of Souls" is another great one, and a truly scary movie.

A few others: "O Whistle and I'll Come to you, My Lad;" "The Beast with Five Fingers." Oh yeah, and "Psycho."

For the record, "Saw" doesn't do it for me. What about you ghoulies and long-leggedy beasties?
