#VundaHalloweenAthon Day 26: "Your Grandparents' Ghouls"

Welcome to Day 26 of our #VundaHalloweenAthon 

The 26th theme of the month is "Your Grandparents' Ghouls." Today we celebrate old horror. We're talking the kinda stuff you'd see on Turner Classic Movies with the likes of Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi--although, as always, we leave the interpretation up to you.

It might be an oldie from Hollywood's Golden Age or a horror classic you haven't given a chance yet. The sky is the limit and bonus Pumpkin Points if you watch more than one movie a day on theme!

Here are a few recommendations from the team, taken from our own watchlists for today...

Group Pick: Bride of Frankenstein (1935) directed by James Whale is available on Criterion Channel and Peacock. Enjoy one of horror's greatest sequels.
