The Halloween Tag

* Insert spooky ghost noises here *

Out of all the holidays the UK has, Halloween has to be one of my favourites. I know it's an American thing but us brits know how to really scare the shit out of people and i'm no exception. So with fright night a couple of weeks away, i thought i would do the Halloween Tag in it's honour. 

1. What was the first horror film you watched and how old were you? - I remember being about 8 years old and watching either 'Paper House' or Stephen Kings 'IT'. I specifically remember IT as it has left me with a fear of clowns ever since.

2. Have you ever been trick or treating? - I went once with a girl called Claire from school and after about the 3rd door we knocked i realised how stupid it was and went home.

3. Do you hand out tricks or treats? - Neither. I know i'm going to sound a right scrooge but i don't agree with trick or treating, it's border line begging. Nope don't approve..sorry kids.

4. What is your most memorable Halloween moment? - Near where i live there is an embankment which used to be an old railway line ( it's used for dog walkers and to cut across a field ) and one year, me and my friends dressed up as werewolves and hid in the bushes, jumping out on people as they walked by. Thinking back i feel kind of bad about it because the embankment has a 30ft drop at either side, we could've caused major accidents but fuck it, it's Halloween !!

5. What have been your costumes over the years? - Admittedly i have only dressed up a handful of times for Halloween but they include a werewolf, Bad Alice ( Alice in wonderland ), a devil and ghost face ( scream ).

6. What are you dressing up as this year? - Plans for this year are a little up in the air at the minute but if me and Carl do go out then i will probably dress up as Slender Man.

7. If you could resurrect 3 famous people from the dead, who would they be and why? - Hmmm ok the first would be Marilyn Monroe so she could show the world that having curves isn't a bad thing. Second would be Tommy Cooper so i could have a good laugh and the third would be Ryan Dunn, let's face it he died too young and the world is a sadder place without him.

8. What would you do if there was a zombie apocalypse? - I'd follow Simon Pegg's example..gather up my family, head over to The Winchester, have a nice cold pint and wait for it all to blow over.

9. You're home alone when you start hearing noises coming from upstairs. The lights suddenly go out and it suddenly gets very cold. You approach the staircase and look up to see a ghost staring down at you. What do you do? Tell whoever it is that i was trying to watch Corrie and i'm more than happy with my current energy provider so turn the bloody electricity and heating back on. No doubt this ghost is a sales rep.

10. What are your top 3 horror films of all time? - Genuinely, horror films don't frighten me but if i was to choose the top 3 that i have seen over the years they would be Insidious, Sinister & The Poltergeist Trilogy ( yeah ok Poltergeist trilogy is 3 films but i class that as a box set lol ).

So there is my Halloween tag !! Happy Halloween !!
