When I was a kid, I wanted something different out of a horror movie. If it was something my parents didn’t want me watching, I was willing to give it a shot. Nowadays I’m more discerning. But honestly? All of that goes out the window the closer and closer we get to October 31st! This is the time when you can get me to watch something I normally would turn my nose up. I’m just that addicted!
