I've listened to it about twenty thousand times in the past three days.
"I don't love you, but I always will."

That's right. Nada. And it was fantastic.
I stayed in my pajamas all day long eating good food, drinking coffee, snuggling with Gilbert, and watching my favorite scary movies. I tend to watch scary movies by myself most of the time, anyway - all of my friends are big scaredy-cats.
My hands-down, favorite scary movie is this:
I saw it for the first time when I was nine years old, and it scared the pants off of me. I can remember watching it through my fingers and nuzzling into my mom's shoulder, but so fascinated by it that I had to watch the whole thing. And 20 years later, it still gets me.
It's a wonderfully (non-bloody, which is a bonus point right there) creepy ghost story, mixed in with this great 1960's small town in the fall nostalgia - it's even really funny at times. Lukas Haas (the perfect quintessential child of 80's movies - Witness, etc.) plays the main character perfectly - his big wide eyes suck you in and make you feel the terror he feels.
Ah...makes me shudder just thinking about it now.
I just looked on Amazon and saw that they've released a Director's Cut DVD, so I think I'm going to plunk down the money for it soon.
Halloween's over, but I think everyone should go rent this one. Tonight. Watch it with someone you can nuzzle into. Watching through your fingers is optional.
