70's horror movies are the best, aren't they? My friends Maegan, Ryan and I used to rent five horror movies at a time and spend a couple nights watching them all. We couldn't have been older than 12 or 13 eating popcorn and watching Children of the Corn, Hellraiser, Candyman and Halloween. I'm not afraid to say that I would walk extra brisk past my windows and glass doors in fear that Michael Myers would be standing out in my yard. That white mask has always amazed me because it is so simple yet frightening.
In October of last year I spent a very fun Halloween weekend in Fresno with my girlfriend and her good friend. It just so happened that Halloween was on a Sunday and I was heading back to Southern California. I decided to make a quick stop to make the weekend complete. The first Halloween movie, as well as several others were filmed in South Pasadena. I walked around the area where Michael Myers stalked those kids and haunted the neighborhood that is supposed to be Haddenfield, Illinois.
