    We live in the ghetto, so from what I understand from last year (my dad answered the door), we only had like maybe half a dozen or so kids, wearing really generic to almost no costumes whatsoever, but yeah.

    I'm waiting for xfinity Music Choice to change their Sounds of the Seasons channel to Halloween music, looks like they're playing German music right now (Oktoburfest).

    I'm making a note to get myself some new decor this year: I have so much Christmas decor for myself, but very sparse Halloween decorations, so I need to remedy that, because I love Halloween too.

    Sigh.... Halloween is only good (for me anyway) for General Mills releasing the Monster Cereals.

    Yes, I saw those on the shelves already earlier this week.

    I've already gone through Yummy Mummy and Frute Brute. I think I liked the Mummy better, but I'll get both again. Unfortunately, I only found them at Target, but their assortment has classic box art reproductions.

    I've seen 'em at Kroger, so they're probably in other grocery stores, or are starting to be in stock.

    CVS also had them, but just the main 3. New Box designs too.

    Then again, I go to Target more frequently than a grocery store that actually has those cereals (the one I go to doesn't).

    Anyway, other than that and the Simpsons Halloween episode, there's really nothing for me. Halloween finally became the most depressing holiday for me. That's depressing in and of itself.

    Well, you do have Charlie Brown-esque tendencies, I must confess...

    Ahhh, Halloween 2013......there's quite a bit I'm hopefully going to do this year.

    Next weekend, I'm assisting at a haunted hayride at a popular campground in my county. Hopefully, I'll get to be something that will really make the riders jump out of their seats. :batty:

    The weekend after, hopefully, I can get a few friends to come with me to see the new remake of "Carrie." I read the book 2 years ago and have been quite smitten with it. But I do really want to see the original movie, if I have time.

    And finally, Halloween night, I'm going to, most likely, settle in and watch "The Nightmare Before Christmas" for the 8,998th time. :p

    Here's the trailer for the original movie.


    If you don't have the original movie, I suggest try to buy the DVD or Bluray online.

    Good luck!

    wait...there's a new remake of Carrie?

    Do we really need two remakes?

    Sheesh. Although I'm not sure if I've seen the original or if it was the 2002 remake. The book is good though. For once King left out all the nonsense that he's known for using to pad books and got right to the point.

    More like a mix of every negative quality from negative characters from everything I ever liked ever.

    Comes with having Darkwing Duck and Inspector Gadget as your childhood heroes.

    That and the whole "I have absolutely nothing to do on that day" thing.

    Sarge, every movie today is either a sequel or a remake. :p

    The original has '70s people in it. Kinda hard to miss, lol. :flirt:

    No... the 2002 one wasn't a remake. it was a disjointed sequel that was only sort of related, I think...

    That's true isn't that the one where Amy Irving comes back playing her original character?
     
  16. MissMusical12

    MissMusical12 Well-Known Member

    No. That was "The Rage: Carrie 2," the "so-called" sequel to the first movie that came out in 1999. In that movie, Amy Irving's original is now a guidance counselor.

    The 2002 movie was a pilot for a series that never got off the ground.

    Ohhh ok, thanks. I've only ever seen the original. Don't really see that changing, lol.

    This year, (because of the unfortunate fact that I am too old for Trick OR Treating) I am throwing a huge party! My vision as of now is having everything spooky down to ground you walk on, some music to get in the spirit: (Count's Monster Mash must be included no matter WHAT!) And of course a costume. If I could only make up my mind on what kind of costume...

    Since when is 14 being too old to trick or treat?
