Casper is a scary fun family Halloween movie, while Halloween is just scary.
The celebration of carving pumpkins, brushing away cobwebs, avoiding black cats, ghosts, goblins, vampires and witches and watching kids (and adults) dress up as superheroes, athletes, musicians, celebrities, current event phenomenons and virtually any character is a great time to gauge society’s preferences and pop-culture’s influences. Culturally speaking, All Hallows’ Eve is an entertaining annual snapshot of who we are.
And on this “Throwback Thursday,” we can never forget the classic (and sometimes underrated) stories that bring this tradition to life with an unmistakable impression.
Well played 1995!
