Happy Halloween Everyone! This is one of my favourite holidays of the year - I'll be settling in tomorrow night to watch some old Horror films, starting with Night of the Living Dead. Here's the link to the Full film in HD on YouTube if you fancy watching a classic film which kick-started the Zombie genre.
I have also been enjoying Cinemassacre's Monster Madness series on YouTube where they review and provide commentaries of Horror films each day of October, so check that out for more Horror goodness!
This year loads of WordPress companies are running special offers and coupon codes so I gathered all the best ones together here for you - most of these expire over the weekend so if you have your eye on a theme or plugin, now is a great time to buy with companies offering up to 50% off their products.
I'll keep this post updated as I find more and please feel free to share any you find in the comments below and I'll get them added also.
Trick or Treat! Speak to you next week ...
