According to Andy Williams, this is the most wonderful time of the year. Why? Scary ghost stories! On the surface, it's drier than Mormon egg-nog out there, but seen through Williams' lens, the screens are full of magic. The most wonderful film of the week may be Nightmare Before Christmas, but don't forget the ghosts in Fiddler! It's tradition! But when push comes to shove, nothing shouts red & green like the New Beverly - it's got a Muppet show, sex & violence!
