We are heading into my favourite season...October!
Yes, it is a season not a month. What? You didn't know that? Shame on you.
Well if you live in Canada you know it is it's own season. It has two holidays if you live in the Great White North because here, Thanksgiving comes before Hallowe'en. Plus this is when the cold really hits turning all the trees colours and forcing the leaves to the sidewalks.
The scent of pumpkin and apples are in everything married nicely with cinnamon and nutmeg. And of course, the stores are already bursting with xmas decorations.
I know, July we see back to school stuff, late Aug we see October stuff, and in late Sept we see xmas stuff. Boy, Zellers sure knows how to keep us in store until the New Year.
Not too mention that now we also start getting those slightly cool, very groovy scary movies for kids on the Family Channel. Helps to get us into the mood.
I went to Blockbuster the other night and rented the latest in this genre.
R.L. Stine's Haunted Hour Episode Don't Think About It.
I found it strong on story, and steady on effects without going overboard.
It centers around a teen goth girl who gets picked on, then takes revenge on the girl who made her the outcast. She finds an old book reads out loud and a creature appears to eat everyone. Then she and her friends save the day.
I am sorry, were you really going to rent it? It will be on tv so you can catch it then.
