I elect that we all move to the tropics for Halloween!
I'm an admitted tv-addict. And so, of course, I watched hours of horror films this weekend. And then I rented The Omen this evening, for a special Halloween veiwing with my friends (pumpkin carving optional).
While I was watching this classic flick I realized, all of a sudden, that as weakling humans we seem to always be preyed upon by Evil in the cold - during autumn or winter settings - more so than in the spring or summer (please exclude the "I Know What You Did Last Summer" series, and any other recent teen "horror films").
Halloween, Friday the Thirteenth, Nightmare on Elm Street... Those are all set in slightly chilly climates. Rosemary's Baby, The Shining, The Omen... even Gremlins was at Christmas.
So, in my moment of terror, I thought... let's all move to the tropics! It's warm there, they have water sports, and hey - I've never heard of the spawn of Satan being born in Jamaica, or anywhere close to the equator. Have you?
NOTE: if anyone has conflicting informaiton or evidence, I urge you - no! - I implore you to share it. We must be safe!!
