It’s almost Halloween, and my kids are finally at the age where I feel like I can begin the process of horrifying them with all the spooky movies I was plopped in front of as a kid.I mean, their entire therapy sessions can’t just consist of me forgetting to pick them up places, amirite?
Except, they don’t show any of those old shows on TV anymore, hell, I wasn’t even able to locate The Great Pumpkin, and that’s like The Christmas Story of Halloween movies. It’s all Halloweentowns and watered down computer animated trick-or-treat specials.
The boogeyman on Backyardigans? Was a dancer just looking for friends to boogey with. MR. BOOGEDY IS ASHAMED OF YOU ALL.
Brittany: Well, this is a bust.
Shauna: You know what my parents made me watch as a kid? The Shining, Carrie, Children of the Corn, The Birds, The Omen, Psycho…
Brittany: Your life makes so much sense now.
But, then I started think about all the other crap my parents made us watch as kids, and realized it had nothing to do with Halloween, but was creepy anyways because it was the 80′s and we had crazy low entertainment standards.
