Trick or Treat

happy halloween

Joven Hundal, Jack Pawlakos, and Kenneth Jeon don their invisible cloaks to dive deeply into the motivations behind scary movies. Kenneth Jeon brings us his 20/20 Vision with insight about Night of the Living Dead, regarded as the first big indie movie, as it found huge success without a Hollywood studio. Since a lot of people already have horror classics on their bucket list, Kenneth showcased three funny, light-hearted films including Shaun of the Dead, What We Do in the Shadows, and TV show, Gravity Falls. Horror mixed with humor will have you laughing out loud. In World Watch, Joven goes back in history to the origins of Halloween in Celtic Ireland. Celts would wear costumes made out of animal skins and animal heads as masks. In Trends without Ends, Jack brings us the current Halloween costume trend: “Ugly Halloween Sweaters”, a one off of the “Ugly Christmas Sweaters” tradition. Halloween is big business. The most popular candies for Halloween are Reese’s peanut butter cups, Snickers, Twix, Kit Kat, M & M’s, Nerds, Sour Patch Kids and Skittles. This year it is predicted 185 million people in the United States will be celebrating Halloween, and the total spending for decorations, costumes, and treats for this frightening fun ends up at a whopping nine billion dollars!!
