Re: Halloween - Terrified?

I'm really no fan of Halloween. It ranks up there with Xmas as my least favorite days of the year ( at least on Xmas we get a day off from work). Columbus Day was always a favorite , we didn't have school, weather generally pretty good , no guilt or jealousy associated with family, no religious ties, in the old days we didn't have to work either. Now it seems we have a day dedicated to greedy, moneygrabbers and chiseling shoppers...known as 'Black Friday'...which is no holiday for me, please...bring back Columbus Day as a REAL holiday where we get a day off!
Back to the "scary" subject:
Why is it so many horror/slasher films have young adults ot teens as the stars?....not much fun watching old people who can't run fast or hide in small places, I guess.
Why are these young people always so stupid?....I mean you know there is a psychotic axe murderer on the loose, the house is dark ( power is out?...or just too stupid to turn the lights on?)...you hear a noise....do you run?....of course not you open the door. And , sure enough , there's Jason or Freddie with a meat cleaver or a machete....ME???...I'm bookin' it outta that house, outta that neighborhood, outta that town...maybe even outta that state.
'Night of The Living Dead'...now here's a good one. The zombies move so bloody slow, you could call your bank, wait on hold for 15 minutes, discuss your balance with a representative, listen to mortage loan and home equity loan offers....and the zombies would still be only halfway up the driveway!...I kept wondering , what are these people afraid of?...a crippled 95 year old could out run these pathetic monsters!
