October is finally here and Halloween season is upon us. For fans of the Halloween series this means it’s time to dust off our DVDs, VHS’ and boxsets and get into full Michael mode. Who am I kidding? We keep these on standby in case of emergency.
Watching the series, even Season of the Witch through The Curse of Michael Myers, totally gets us in the Halloween spirit and once that iconic score commences we’re bursting with the Haddonfield jitters.
This year is extra special, as it marks the 40th anniversary of the night he came home. Halloween is no longer just a guilty pleasure but a rudimentary sense of life or death, good or evil, right or wrong.
If you relate to the list below it’s proof you “stan” for Halloween harder than Michael “stans” for Laurie!
You’re a Halloween fanatic if
…when you see “H20” printed anywhere you automatically think of the 20th anniversary instead of the chemical formula for water.
…you think of Dr. Sam Loomis as one of the greatest poets ever to exist.
…it’s been over 20 years and you’re still upset at Halloween 6 producers for not giving Danielle Harris that cameo (no offence J.C. Brandy).
…you’d give your all to anyone named Paul.
…when walking around on a fall day, you begin to hear Laurie’s theme music play in your head.
…you refer to prank calls as “obscene” phone calls.
…Jamie Lee Curtis is your ultimate final girl, and you pretend the first 15 minutes of Halloween Resurrection were just a bad dream.
…Paul Rudd, Josh Hartnett and Michelle Williams are still Tommy, John and Molly to you.
…you loose your keys for a second and panic takes over
“the keys, ooo the keys!”
…the years 1978, 1981, 1983, 1988, 1989, 1995, 1998, 2002 and now 2018 have the same significance to you as your birth year.
Happy Halloween Month!
