    Here Comes Peter Cottontail

    ★★★½

    The description of my Rankin/Bass specials noticeably doesn’t use the word “Christmas”, and that wasn’t an oversight. My plan from the start was any and all, as much as I could, which means the Easter special which also features all the other massive American holidays was always on my radar.

    Night of the Living Dead

    ★★★

That second option is always disappointing, so too bad that’s how I felt with Night of the Living Dead.

    I really like the world building we get from the radio and TV broadcasts. The creeping fear of something un-understandable taking complete…
