Wouldn’t it be nice if Byrneholics Everywhere could be together on Halloween? We could have a Byrne-ing Halloween Party! But alas, it is not possible, so here is the next best thing: a Virtual Party to celebrate this scary holiday, with our favorite, The Man Himself: Gabriel Byrne!
Getting in the Mood
First, you need appropriately scary stuff for your desktop.
Next, some All Hallows’ Eve goodies.
Now that we have summoned him and he has cast his spell on us, and we’ve had a bit to eat and drink, listening to Gabriel Byrne’s voice is certainly a mood-setter!
The Masque of the Red Death
Gabriel Byrne reads Edgar Allan Poe’s masterpiece of the macabre.
Finally, you are ready to watch our favorite Irishman get scary! And romantic. And serious. And really funny, too, but it a very scary way! First up:
Stigmata: Take Me to Church
Next, if you are in the United States, Vampire Academy is streaming at Netflix. Catch Gabriel as the nefarious and often very funny Victor Dashkov, and enjoy a comedic spin on the horrors of high school, fathers with fangs, and adolescent angst.
And last, but not least:
A Halloween from the Past
Sometimes it’s better NOT to attend a Halloween party. Do this instead. It is safer, and very possibly more fun.
The list: End of Days, Gothic, Stigmata, Ghost Ship, and Spider. Scary trailers and excerpts!
Happy Halloween and I hope you get “Byrned”! wink
