Life often throws us curveballs. Sometimes it happens when we’re down on our luck and other times it’s when we feel high on life. Either way they tend to come out of nowhere and sometimes can change our journey completely. A life lesson that we never thought we’d have.
There’s a pretty fair chance that at once point in your life you’ve heard the phrase “you better be good, or the boogeyman will come after you,” or something along those lines. Every generation, culture, and individual has their own version of what the boogeyman is. In recent years, we’ve seen a lot of films about Krampus, which is essentially the European folklore’s version of the boogeyman. Krampus is known for punishing all the naughty children during the Christmas season.
If you know me, you know I"m not the biggest fan of HALLOWEEN. I don't hate it, I'm just more of a Freddy girl. He's a sarcastic little fucker like me and I can't help but love him. That being said, I still, and always will, appreciate HALLOWEEN for what it's done for horror and cinema in general. It's one of the most iconic films ever made with one of the most legendary horror icons to ever grace the screen. The Boogeyman. The Shape. Michael Myers.
Sometimes I truly love going into a film knowing nothing about it. It's fun, mysterious, and you have absolutely no idea what to expect. It's a different experience from all the mainstream films that are hyped up and you already know a good chunk about the characters and can even guess what may happen.
