Halloween

Halloween

i have seen this movie many times. it is very easy, also fun, for me to watch these horror movies i love with a sense of detachment. the irony built up over multiple viewings over the moments of absurdity (donald pleasance has entered the chat). but in my eyes there can a ceiling to the amount of fun you can have with irony. so i made the decision to watch sincerely, to pull my blanket up to my chin, nervously playing with the fabric as that iconic score plays and michael myers stalks. it is so damn fun. so fun whether you watch this way or watch laughing as you debate with friends whether or not you think michael myers could have benefited from having a dedicated case worker while institutionalized (clearly his doctor doesn’t believe he can be rehabilitated). i have watched and will continue to watch it both ways. it’s a classic in every sense of the term. i really like, and feel very attached, to this movie
