Paper Cup Ghosts

I love the simplicity of this Halloween craft. All you need are some white paper cups and a black marker, which are easy enough to get at a dollar store. Turn the cups upside down, draw goofy ghost faces and—voilà!

My So-Called Life Halloween

“When I was little I, like, worshiped Halloween. And truthfully, part of me still does. ‘Cause it’s your one chance all year to be someone else.” ~ Angela Chase

As a 90s teen, I lived for My So-Called Life. I taped the episodes on VHS so I could re-watch them obsessively. Oh, the days before binging on streaming sites. The Halloween episode was an ethereal ghost story about teenage souls meeting across time. Cheesy, but just enough. My favorite part of the episode was Angela’s sister Danielle dressed up as Angela.

Classic!

Horror Cinema Trivia: Halloween (1978)

The original script for 1978’s Halloween was titled “The Babysitter Murders.” In it, the events took place over several days. The script was changed to have everything happen on the same day as a budgetary decision. It reduced the number of costume changes and locations required. It was decided that Halloween, the scariest night of the year, was the perfect night for this to happen.

Of the female leads (who were all supposed to be in high school), only Jamie Lee Curtis was actually a teenager at the time of shooting.
