Samantha and her fellow witches are bedeviled by Halloween in these two black-and-white 25-minute episodes specially packaged for the occasion. In "The Witches Are Out," Darrin (Dick York in both episodes) is fired after refusing to use a stereotyped old crone witch in an ad. So Samantha and friends spook the client with protest signs and tricks until he gladly calls off his "discriminatory" campaign. In "Trick or Treat," Endora (Agnes Moorehead) is peeved that Samantha opts to entertain one of Darrin's clients on Halloween instead of joining her at the sacred volcano. So she turns her daughter's hapless husband into a werewolf during the business get-together as punishment. Watch for a pre-Brady Bunch Maureen McCormick as the young Endora. --Kimberly Heinrichs
In Elseworlds, heroes are taken from their usual settings and put into strange times and places—some that have existed, or might have existed, and others that can’t, couldn’t or shouldn’t exist. The result: stories that make characters who are as familiar as yesterday seem as fresh as tomorrow.Gotham City is caught in a vortex of corruption and decay, and those who feed on blood and despair are about to suck any remaining life from her dying veins. All that stands against them is the Batman, their legendary companion in the darkness, the last line of defense between the innocent and the screaming chaos of mindless appetite. To combat this primeval threat, however, the Dark Knight must give up everything he holds dear, including life itself—for death is only the first step toward the final reckoning between good and evil.Written by Doug Moench and illustrated in full gothic glory by Kelley Jones, John Beatty and Malcolm Jones III, ELSEWORLDS: BATMAN VOL. 2 gives free rein to the darker side of the World’s Greatest Detective, collecting BATMAN & DRACULA: RED RAIN, BATMAN: BLOODSTORM and BATMAN: CRIMSON MIST.

John Carpenter is an auteur who writes, directs and also composes his own music. He was inspired to become a filmmaker by his love of Hitchcock, Forbidden Planet, King Kong and Ray Harryausen and his debut feature - 1974's Dark Star - started life as a $60,000 student project but so impressed during showings at film festivals it eventually gained a theatrical release. The familiar trademarks and techniques of John Carpenter are empty rooms and streets (emptiness represents suspicion and generates anticipation), flawed Hawksian heroes we can sort of relate to, pyrrhic victories, distrust of government and authority, electronic music with accentuating notes, a love of anamorphic Panavision, and minimal exposition when telling a story. Explore the film career of John Carpenter and the rich legacy of cult classics he has given us in The John Carpenter Companion...
