|NOT TO 50!|
I got this snapchat from one of the girls during the movie if it helps to have a visual. Look at those sweet faces. So sweet and so tween.
But back to Monster House. Have you seen it? I liked it but it was weeeiiiirrrrd and I'm not sure what age it's actually targeted for. I thought it was pretty scary for kids, but these girls were "over it" or at least trying to convince themselves of that. They started out scared but then started rationalizing - "a house wouldn't really come alive," they said. "The old man could never lift that kid up," and "the house's throat is SO UNREALISTIC!" I think they were trying to prevent a repeat of last Halloween's scary movie night incident (link).
Personally I jumped and gasped a lot at Monster House. It didn't help that one of the girls kept sneaking up behind me and grabbing or poking me.

It's Halloween week and that makes me happy. I haven't watched too many actually scary movies yet this month though. They've mostly been of the Disney variety. Am I getting soft? Or is it just that the people around me are chickens?
Do you have a movie you have to watch every Halloween season? For me that would be Hocus Pocus. After that, the Changling is my next must-see. (And I haven't seen it yet this year!)
More Halloween stuff coming tomorrow... Be prepared....
