Thursday Movie Picks: Halloween/Television Edition – The Weird

Hello my lovely readers!
This week I’m participating in the Thursday Movie Picks series by Wandering through the shelves. For a change the topic focuses on TV instead of movies – and it’s a Halloween special. So let’s talk about The Weird…
