The countdown to Halloween has begun! All the parties are going to be this weekend since Halloween is on a Wednesday this year. It’s time to pull out that stinky old grease paint from last year (please get new stuff) and drag out an old costume. What if you’re afraid of clowns though? You know there are going to be a bunch at parties this year. No one is over IT with the sequel on the way, and everyone and their mother is going to try to do an early Joaquin Phoenix as the Joker costume.
