Lately, I have been reading a book to my children called Spooky Things. The book features Thing One and Thing Two of Dr. Seuss fame, as they try on various Halloween costumes. It ends with the proclamation, “Happy Halloween Things!” That saying has taken hold in this apartment and is something I will exclaim whenever something Halloweenish is happening. Like last night, when Seth Meyers brought out his cousin and one-time opponent to Busta Rhymes, Michael Myers.
Myers has a new movie dropping this Friday called Halloween Ends, which claims to be the end of the Halloween franchise (or, ya know, the end of this string of movies). Like all stars in his position, he stopped by a late-night show to plug his flick, only to be drawn by his uncontrollable urge to murder sexy teens. A stark reminder that your vices will get you in the end.
Halloween Ends arrives in theaters and drops on Peacock at the same time this year. That likely explains why Myers was booked on an NBC/Universal show, and why Seth Meyers seemed less like he was in a sketch and more like he was a hostage. He does his best, but there’s only so much you can do when your scene partner is mute. Meyers does his damnedest, but it’s just a tough idea. He even apologizes for it at the end! Even if it is some world-class:
I love Halloween and “Spooky Season,” so I’m happy to see anything like this, successful or not. It’s weird and wacky and plays as such. Chucky will probably be on WWE television next week, and I’m just as excited for that shitshow as well. Give it all to me, because as we say in the Sanford Household: Happy Halloween Things!
