Halloween is a time to be scared—specifically, by scary movies. But what if you’re someone who’s especially jumpy? For the latest episode of io9's series, UnScene, Gizmodo Editor in Chief Kelly Bourdet faced her personal fears by watching Halloween for the first time, alongside a Deadspin staffer (and Michael Myers fan) who doesn’t startle as easily.
Deadspin senior editor David Roth welcomed Bourdet into the Halloween family by screening John Carpenter’s 1978 horror classic starring Jamie Lee Curtis. This comes just before Friday’s release of the new Halloween film, which sees Curtis triumphantly returning to the role as she hunts for the man who terrorised her for years.
