Always hated this day! I remember myself finding cheap excuses of avoiding to meet with my then relationships, in my late teens/early twenties, and preferring to keep company with the loners. Sometimes, I even chose staying at home and watch b-movies and cult flicks. Actually, this was the best part of it all!

So, this is the day for a small tribute to a Spooky Valentine’s Day, or night if you prefer. Prepare your huge bowl of pop-corn, sit back and enjoy…Five cult ‘spookies’ for you to feed your ‘Anti-Valentine’ disgust, plus one for next year…
