Halloween ★★★★★

when i was a child, every october a television station would play a horror movie every night for the duration of the month. i’ve long lost the memory of what station it was and how old i was. but what i do remember was being far too young to watch this film, paralyzed by fear, but not being able to take my eyes off the screen. for the following weeks i slept in my parents bed, wedged in between them. feeling safe and guarded. when in reality if michael myers was real i highly doubt he’d have and problem cleaning up the entire bedroom. but that’s beside the point. this review is a thank you to my dad for two things. one, exposing me to a world of films at such a young age, and two, for scarring me for years to come.
