Quote of the day: “I’d have been dead a long time ago if not for my friends, one of whom had just jumped off the cliff after me.
I’d have been a lot more appreciative if he hadn’t pushed me first." Cassandra Palmer ― Hunt the Moon by Karen Chance

Annual Halloween Event: Halloween VS. Halloween

Halloween VS. Halloween

I LOVE Halloween. The Season, the movie. Everything. I don't know many who don't enjoy Halloween. 
If you read my blog, you know that I love horror movies, especially OLD Horror movies, and Halloween is no exception. I loved the original Halloween (1978) and also the new Halloween movie (2007) by Rob Zombie. If your a movie buff, then you probably agree, the original movie is always better. I still enjoy the remakes, but nothing beats the best. 

The 1978 movie was an independent horror film set in a fictional suburban town in Illinois, USA. Halloween would never be the same. 

I was reading Rosey's take on this and I have to agree. The original Michael had no feelings. He was a killing machine without a care in the world. The 2007 Michael may still be a killer, but he has feelings for his baby sister. A love for her and no one else. He doesn't know what to do when he feels that love, but Laurie is the only thing to make him stop and think, at least for a few minutes.
