Oh, Halloween. Not the holiday, but the movie. Even though I do love the holiday. I guess they kind of go hand-in-hand. What am I rambling about? Oh yeah – Halloween! It scared the shit out of me when I was a kid and to this day is pretty much horror movie perfection. But, there’s always a scene that makes me chuckle. A scene, other than when Michael Myers is driving, that stirs the crowd into a frenzy at screenings of the movie. And that scene is………..
That Lonnie was a little shit. And good for Loomis for telling his ass to get away from the Myers house! Better that than have little Lonnie get his ass stabbed by Mikey. But it’s just the whole delivery that Donald Pleasence brings to the line that makes it a crowd favorite. And that little smirk. That semi-giggle. He was so proud of his zinger. And he should have been. Who knows by the way – maybe Loomis’ threatening verbiage steered Lonnie onto the right path in life, and maybe he went on to become a successful……ah, who gives a shit.
