Halloween ★★★★★

specific horror and existential terror. every car that has slowed down just enough for your heart to start pounding, every passerby on the street that has lurked just a little too close, every dark corner that has pulsed with shadow just a little too much. i have been jamie lee curtis too many times to count, praying that the night wasn't big enough for michael myers to overtake me as i quelled my impulse to run. there's nothing supernatural here yet it's not entirely set in our world- it's a liminal space that is where all of us and none of us live at the same time. saturated skies and a Illinois set in California. sometimes evil wins and there's nothing you can do to escape it.
