We’ve had some fun with this in the past, so I’m going to do this again.
This time, I’m giving away a viewed once copy of Ghostbusters on Blu Ray. (I’ll even ship it to you, but not by UPS.)
To enter to win, comment here with one of your favorite Halloween stories. Everyone has stories, and everyone loves Ghostbusters! (Alternatively, send me a message, email, tweet, whatever, if you don’t want to leave a comment here.)
Here’s one of my favorite Halloween memories. It’s not a happy story, but at least it has a somewhat happy ending.
When I was in 4th Grade, A Nightmare on Elm Street was a big hit, and everyone wanted to dress up as Freddy Krueger, even horrified 9 year olds who weren’t even allowed to watch the film. We had a magic shop in Middletown that sold costumes only during Halloween Season (side note: come to think of it, the store was more like Ray’s Occult Books, if you’re looking for how Ghostbusters fits into this). It costed a bunch of money, but my parents let me buy the signature Freddy Krueger glove and an uncomfortable latex mask. I thought I was going to have the coolest costume at the costume party in school.
However, a kid showed me up by taking about 40 minutes to add burn scars all over his face with various combinations of makeup, prosthetics, and spirit gum. His parents probably spent way less than mine did, and everyone thought his costume was the coolest in school.
Yeah, I was pissed. But I’m ok now.
(Giveaway ends at 12:00am on 11/1. A winner will be selected at random.)
