“You know it’s Halloween. I guess everyone’s entitled to one good scare.”

From: Halloween (1978)

Genre: Movies

Who said it?: Sheriff Leigh Brackett

The story behind the quote: This week’s quote comes from the original Halloween film that was released in 1978. The film is about a homicidal maniac named Michael Myers who stalks several teens in a small suburban town. This was one of the original slasher films and launched Jamie Lee Curtis’ career in the film industry.

The quote comes early in the film. Laurie Strode (played by Jamie Lee Curtis) sees Michael Myers hiding in the bushes. When her friend investigates, she tells Laurie no one’s there. Perturbed and distracted by the mysterious figure’s disappearance, Laurie runs into Sheriff Leigh Brackett (played by Charles Cyphers). Reassuring Laurie it’s okay, Sheriff Brackett delivers the quote.

Geek wisdom: Halloween is just around the corner. It’s fine to go around and scaring people but don’t go overboard with it. After all, not everyone may find being frightened fun.
