After trying to convince her that The Winter Soldier and The Addams Family are both horror movies suitable for Halloween night viewing, I may have told Housemate that I had a movie about a ghost helping the main character to avenge their murder via serial killer* that is totally a horror movie, honest-to-goodness, cross my heart. She remained unconvinced.
Housemate and I ended up watching four movies: The Eye, I am Legend, Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter, and Psycho, breaking for dinner after The Eye, and breaking for SingStar after Friday the 13th. I hadn't seen the first three. I had seen Psycho, for year 11 media (over 10 years ago, it frightens me to say) but Housemate hadn't, and I spent most of it studiously avoiding answering questions like 'Is she going to die? Is he the killer? Is it his mother? Does anyone else die in this film?'
I liked The Eye, and would like to see the Chinese version. I am Legend was really boring and also thank photon for spoilers. During Friday the 13th I began amusing myself by shouting 'show us your dick' at the screen after having seen a few too many naked breasts. (And after having drunk a can of coke.)
We had a total of five trick-or-treaters, travelling in two groups, with two costumes between them. I'd completely forgotten how unsettling it is when unexpected people come to our front door. I'd bought a big bag of lollies, and we still ended up with enough left to make gross jokes with during Psycho. (At one point all it took was for me to hold up a pale green snake for both of us to get the giggles)
Housemate said that maybe next year she should dress up as the Fourth Doctor and we could get a bag of jelly babies. That would be cool.
*I... just realised that this is pretty much the movie Ghost, the one with Patrick Swayze and Whoopi Goldberg and Demi Moore? Except that I was referring to FF7:Advent Children, which I would usually describe with the phrases 'breaks all the laws of physics. And all the laws of canon.'**
**The canon-breaking leaves me all 'you kids stay off my lawn!' but I can do nothing but approve of the physics law-breaking. So much carnage! So many swords! So much motorbike-related destruction! How did you push that glowy-ball into your arm?
