TL;DR – An interesting idea, and full-on creepy, but it did leave me feeling a bit hollow at the end.

Well it is October and that means it is Halloween month, so it is time for the
many, many new horror films to make their way into the world. It is the perfect
time for horror and what goes bump in the night but it can be hard to get your
head above the crowd. However, if there is any way to do that basing your work
on something written by Stephen King is sure one way to do it.
So to set the scene, we open in on a brother Cal (Avery Whitted) and sister
Becky (Laysla De Oliveira) as they make their way across the country to San Diego.
They are moving to a new life, getting ready because Becky is quite pregnant.
They stop on the side of the road because Becky gets morning sickness and needs
to let heave. As they wait they hear a voice call out from the long grass on
the side of the road. A young boy called Tobin (Will Buie Jr.). They run into
grass to try and help the boy but get separated, but that’s okay because they
are really close. But soon voices get warped, people get moved around, and
there is more than whispers out there in the long grass.
TL;DR – Today we learn that even when people are not the worst, they can still disappoint you

It’s Halloween in the quaint town of Hawkins, and with the season there is a time for everything,
a time to make friends and a time to lose them,
a time to make promises and a time to forget them,
a time to get dressed into costume and a time to realise maybe don’t do that at school,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to say hello to a girl in the woods and a time to get hit in the head with a half-cooked squirrel,
a time to reach out and a time to miss the response,
a time to be bold and a time to run away from the all oppressive shadow in the sky,
a time to forget the past and a time to be defined by it,
a time to hold on for dear life and a time to let go,
a time to eat Eggo Waffles™ and a time to channel surf,
a time to wear all denim and a time to do literally any other fashion choice
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.
a time to come together as a team and a time to be just the absolute worst, I mean come on Ted (Joe Chrest) The Russians, really, get it together.
