Back Home


It's Halloween - an odd time of year that sees people dressing up in shabby clothes, drinking, and asking other people for food. But while people play hobo for the night, I treat the macabre occasion the same way I treat the rest of life: as an excuse to watch more films.

But everyone already knows that The Exorcist and The Shining are probably the two scariest films ever made, so who needs to read yet another list of the "top horror films of all time"? Instead, I like to play Scream: The Video Game or something equally gruesome.

But if point-and-click MS-DOS games based on Wes Craven films aren't your thing, here's something a little more old-school: some actors doing what they do best when they're out of work in the winter season: reading terrifying ghost stories.

Inevitably, most of these are by Edgar Allan Poe, but there's a special treat in there for vampire fans: Dracula read by Michael Fassbender.

It's World Book Day! Celebrating it is easy: just read a book.

But as the saying goes, if you're at work and you don't have the time to crack open a spine until this evening, get Samuel L. Jackson to read one to you. So here's a special World Book Day treat: Samuel L. Jackson reading Go the Fuck to Sleep.



For more books read by famous people, here's Werner Herzog reading Winnie the Pooh and scary actors reading ghost stories.



Happy World Book Night! What better way to celebrate the most brilliant (and oh-so-British) idea of giving away 40,000 books in one night around the UK than listening to Werner Herzog read some bedtime stories? (Let's face it: Age of the Dragons crapping all over Herman Melville's Moby Dick is hardly a worthy celebration.)

In case you haven't seen any of the legendary "Werner Herzog Reads..." series, they're brilliant. Mainly because they're just videos of Werner Herzog. Reading. Ok, so it's not really Werner Herzog, but anyone who points that out is probably just bitter because they can't read anyway.

So if you missed World Book Day this week and have no-one to give you a free copy of The Spy Who Came in from the Cold, enjoy the world's most mental German film director, cave explorer, and Headmaster of Benjamin Sniddlegrass's Fairport Academy reading Where's Waldo:



And now here he is reading Winnie the Pooh: 



Have a great World Book Night everyone. And whatever you read, remember that there is nothing in life except CHAOS, HOSTILITY AND MURDER.
