All Hallows’ Evening

Quick thought today:

If  philosopher and psychologist William James’ 1895 idea of multiverses [since loved by Sci-Fi writers and indeed quantum physicists ] is correct, that would mean there is possibly somewhere a never-ending Halloween eve where poor Laurie Strode is running backwards and forwards in a certain Haddonfield street trying to get some attention from disinterested neighbours  [thinking her screams are just a Trick or Treat prank] whilst jangly electronic music plays and a tall figure in a blanked William Shatner mask unfalteringly advances in the shadows.

In my opinion John Carpernter’s 1978 film Halloween was one of the last ‘great’ movies to use the old ‘false startle’ or ‘tap-on-the-shoulder routine’ in which the ‘monster’ lunges into our field of vision or creeps up on a person.
