In Memoriam: Annie Brackett
Oh Paul, I give you all...no keys...but please, my Paul.
This the first piece of a few in the HALLOWEEN RETROSPECTIVE that will deal with the less fortunate of characters from this series. Characters who didn't make it to November 1.
Let me open up saying I am a big Annie Brackett fan. I'm also a fan of the actress Nancy Loomis (then, now its Kyes), a regular in John Carpenter movies. In Halloween, she's got a sort of spunky sarcastic charisma that I find engaging. She's Laurie's friend does all the things Laurie would like to do, but is apprehensive about doing so because of her ties to morals. Laurie is shy about the boys, Annie goes right after them. Laurie is the greatest babysitter ever, Annie is looking for every way to swindle out of it and sneak out with her boyfriend Paul.
Here's to Annie!
