Costume calamities to avoid

1 Lady Gaga

Surely, the worst costume failure is to dress up as Lady Gaga for a Christmas ball. Imagine showing up in a meat dress among all those elegant people. It would be hilarious. But don't expect to be invited for a dance.

And since it's Halloween, there's no better way to get into the ghostly spirit than to talk about scary films - ones that make your blood curdle. So, without further ado, here are Sunday Young Post's picks for the most spooktacular films of all time ...

Hero auctioneer should consider giving up day job

Instead of running an auction house, maybe Carson Chan Kai-shun should don a cape and mask as a crime fighter. The local managing director of Bonhams helped foil a would-be robber near his Pacific Place office on Monday afternoon.

Hell Ride

Larry Bishop, Michael Madsen, Dennis Hopper

Director: Larry Bishop

Auditions for Halloween roles a real scream

It was the sort of audition where the more over the top the performance, the better the chance of getting called back.

Screaming at the top of their lungs, 200 or so people tried to scare the judges for a spot on Ocean Park's 'Scream Team', performers who add Halloween atmosphere at the park for the months of September and October. Yesterday was the first day of recruitment.

Horror movies

I saw a fantastic horror movie last night!

I don't like horror movies. Don't you get spooked by them?

It's only a movie. I never get spooked by movies!

I do! I prefer comedies. I don't like scary movies.

You're such wimps! There's nothing like a good scare.

The producers make megabucks out of scared teenagers.

Do you like watching horror movies?

Name: Nicole Fu

Age: 16

Top tunes: Twins' songs

I seldom watch horror movies because I sometimes have nightmares afterwards. It also makes me feel afraid at night, especially when I go to sleep. I saw a Japanese horror movie recently, One Missed Call, and it was really scary. Japanese horror films scare me the most.

Lame Movie Name

Job description: Movie names should suggest, entice and intrigue. Action film titles, for instance, are typically a punchy monosyllabic one-two (the Die Hard school of movie naming). Good dramatic names often use words that play on the emotions, or have a touch of irony (Postcards from the Edge, Closer).

WHAT THE CRITICS SAY

Scary Movie 3

Everything from The Lord Of The Rings to 8 Mile are given the spoof treatment in this latest in the series of horror movies for those who hate the horror genre.

Steven Rea

Philadelphia Inquirer

'Scary Movie 3 is a veritable time capsule of of-this-moment kitsch, schlock and bad taste. And it's funny, too.'
