February 26th is also the anniversary of the original German premier of The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, another ancient masterpiece that I am ashamed to report I have never actually seen. Perhaps this will be the night that changes.
It's also Tell a Fairy Tale Day. I have always been a fan of the sleeper hit within the creepy doll subgenre, Pinocchio's Revenge. Other horror adaptations of fairy tales include Rumpelstiltskin, Snow White: A Tale of Terror and even Jack Frost, which is appropriately framed as an old man telling a bedtime story to his granddaughter.
