Everybody’s entitled to at least one good scare
So stated Charles Cyphers’ Sherriff Brackett in John Carpenter’s seminal basic, Halloween… He additionally stated it in David Gordon Inexperienced’s not-so-seminal Halloween Kills, regardless of it being 40 years later, and no one within the scene having been on-site for the primary time he stated it. Nonetheless, that’s the DGG Halloween trilogy to a tee: Do not forget that? Right here it’s once more! (additionally, mobs are unhealthy). I noticed Halloween Ends. I don’t hate it like most hate it, however it does really feel like a movie made whereas the crew was guffawing and saying “The followers shall be SO mad!”
Howdy pals, and welcome to this tremendous scary version of Whatcha Been Enjoying? And by “tremendous scary” I imply, “It was actually scary on Tuesday when a flood fully ruined my kitchen and made me cry”. I recognize the help lent to me in Qposts and social media, and repairs are presently in course of. It was a nightmare, and I needed to transfer out for a bit, however it may have been a lot worse, and all of us should be thankful for the small mercies. The water didn’t hit my Fortunate Chloe figurine, is what I’m saying.
A nightmare week, however it’s executed, and now it’s the weekend, so let’s make it a great one.
See something you want?
Normally, I’d be telling you the video games which have been filling my time, however clearly the above occasions put paid to that. I’m additionally too busy for gaming this weekend, as I’m heading out of city for an industry-based Halloween get together. It’s the primary get together I’ve attended in lots of, a few years, and would be the first time I’ve worn a “costume” as such in many years, so it’s a bit bizarre and I’m just a little anxious, however it must be enjoyable. I’m decided to go, in an effort to salvage one thing from the week and get away from my smelly home.
My costume? Nicely, I may go as one thing immediately recognizable, however as a substitute, I’m going to be awkward and clunky and go because the villainous Rose the Hat from Stephen King’s Physician Sleep. I’m doing this as a result of I like that film, I like Rebecca Ferguson, and I don’t assume I can pull off Dune‘s Woman Jessica of the Atreides. Are these the one causes? I can’t get into that. If I look good, I’ll share pictures within the feedback, Qposts, or on my Twitter. Solely if I look good, nonetheless.
A reader instructed I ought to go as Juri… Lordy, I do know Halloween is supposed to be scary, however…
It was The Boogeyman…
