Sometime in the night the candy stopped having its effect on me and I just crashed hard. We were supposed to have handed out all that candy, as well as serving our frosted cookies to our guests, but the rain kept the kids to a minimum and our guests seemed to be happy to sip their cocktails, visit, hand out candy to the few intrepid water rats that arrived.
Later in the evening, we all sat and watched the perennial classic, Halloween, with Jamie Lee Curtis in her breakout role.The movie still stands as a movie that all other horror flicks emulate. Watching the special features, we were enthralled to find out a few things:
- the mask that Michael Myers (The Shape) wears was a Captain Kirk mask
- the movie was made for $300,000… and made over $50 Million (good investment)
- Donald Pleasance was the highest paid actor on the movie ($20,000)
- Jamie Lee Curtis went on to have a great career
- P.J. Soles’ career went downhill
