I'm Surprised That Halloween Isn't on Friday the 13th

As most of us know, the "paganistic holiday" of Halloween is showing up. So right now, I am going to be talking about a whole bunch of different horror movies, that thrill you, chill you, and fulfill you.

Yes, I know most people would ask me why. I'd tell them, "it's fun to get a scare on Halloween, that's why?" I do believe that is true, as long as it's harmless. Sure, some people think that I am nuts but who cares.

Now, on to the movies. Let's start with the Halloween Series. This is one of my favorite horror series. I can't really explain why, but it is. I guess one reason is because it's let's see how many times we can resurrect a psychopathic killer. Oh yeah, did I mention that the psychopath Michael Myers killed his sister on Halloween night when he was five. Does most of his killing in Haddonfield, Illinois.

What makes this series great is that it took to the very last one to put Mike away. Other than that, I love Rob Zombie's remakes of the first two Halloween films.

Friday the 13th. What can we say about this film series? Well 13 is an "unlucky" number. Yeah, "unlucky" just like all the characters that died in the films, including Corey Feldman, Kevin Bacon and Crispin Glover.

OK, OK, I know what most of you are thinking, this has the same kind of idea as Halloween. Crazy guy goes after people and kills them, then is resurrected for 10 movies. The only difference is that most of Jason's (the bad guys) killings take place in the woods near Camp Crystal Lake.

For those of you who don't know CCL is where Jason Vorhees drowned as a child because the counselors were not watching him when they should've been.

One word, three letters, seven movies, a psychological killer. That's right I'm talking about Saw. OK, I know many of you out there are not big fans of this series, but, I sirs and ladies, am.

This is a horror series that makes you think. I don't mean think "what's going to happen next?" I mean, "how will the person get out of the situation they're in." One thing that makes the Saw series different is that the killer never actually kills any one or lays a finger on them. Figure that out ladies and sirs.

OK, until next time, have a good night and a pleasant tomorrow!
