But one of my very favorite things about Halloween is how the stations on TV start doing their '31 Days of Halloween' specials and load the time slots with scary movies, new and old.
And let's face it, not all of these movies are even good, or scary. They're pure nostalgia. Seriously, ask someone who didn't see the movie version of Stephen King's It before the age of ten and they'll likely say that it's lame and laughable and whatever else. It's kind of hard to argue against a claymation drain being pulled open, but I digress. Still, as someone who saw it at a young age, I still get the chills if my toes graze over the drain grate in my shower.
