Sean Helped Me In Real Life
27 June 2015 | by (Allentown, PA) – See all my reviews

I ought to start by saying that Halloween is my favorite holiday. It is only 4 months away. I miss being a kid where you'd go from house to house trick or treating. I haven't gone since I was 14. Over the years, they've made lots of Halloween movies, usually kids movies and you can find them on TV like on ABC Family during Halloween. You can also find some random Halloween movies you haven't heard of like at RedBox during Halloween. Most of the Halloween movies are kids movies, and a lot of them seem more cheesy than they are scary. This movie is a great Halloween movie, and I could consider it the best one. It seems like a more entertaining film to watch on a big screen than Hocus Pocus which is like the most watched Halloween movie and which made the movie theaters.

So, I watched this movie today after my work shift got cancelled because of the bad weather. It wasn't the only time I had seen it, I saw it a few years ago on my computer. I bought my own copy of the DVD at the SuperMarket during October 2013 but I hadn't watched my DVD copy of it yet and I decided to watch it today. This movie seemed to entertain me more today than when I watched it on my computer. Enough where I'd give it a 10. I even thought of the movie as a little scary, and there was a scene that made me move back on my chair and gasp. It definitely felt worth my time. I like this movie as it's an entertaining Halloween movie. The characters in the movie seem realistic. We have Cassie who is played by Emily Osment and instead of being the blonde we recognize her for she is a goth. We also have her little brother Max who wants to be close to his older sister, but she gets annoyed at him and he is scared of everything. We have Sean who is the cool guy in the school and Priscilla who is a popular school girl, but enemies with Cassie. This movie makes you feel a little at home and can even get you in the Halloween spirit early. It's also cool how this movie was filmed in my home state, Pennsylvania in Cranberry Township where my sister used to live by Pittsburgh.

I felt like this was better done than most of R.L. Stine's work. Or, I would even consider this number 1 of what he made and possibly the best Halloween movie. We seem to get to know the characters better in this one, and you can even find out which character you're like on the DVD menu by answering questions about how you'd handle scary situations. But, the real thing that helped me from this movie in a positive way. Lots of movies will try to leave you with good messages that can be helpful in life and characters that can be role models or characters we can relate to. This movie will show messages like caring for family, and bravery, but here is how the movie helped me for a more personal example. I've graduated from college, and I'll admit I'm not the best at doing homework assignments without help, at times it can be hard for me to understand the material and I've had lots of tutors over the years. Even at college, my mom had set me up with a tutor who was even younger than I am. I used to feel super embarrassed that she was my tutor feeling like none of the other students had one. I tried to keep working with her a secret and felt ashamed at myself for having tutors in life. But, then there's Sean is this movie. He is a cool handsome friendly guy that's like every girls dream in the school. He needs help on a paper coming up that he's afraid if he doesn't get it he'll fail the paper as it's one of his weaknesses. He isn't afraid to ask for help as he knows he needs it. Though, we don't really think less of Sean because of it. He doesn't even seem to have a disability just not a strength at writing papers like Cassie and Priscilla. But, that doesn't keep him from being a cool likable character. So, this R.L. Stine movie had a character who helped me out in real life where I figured if I needed help I should ask for it, and I don't have to think less of myself because of it or have to hide it anymore. It's nice if movies can impact your life that much, it's a really positive thing you get out of the movie if they do impact your life in a positive way!!
