2009 SGM Month of Halloween Horror Movie for October 18

King of the Hill: “Hilloween” (1997)

Phobia: Samhainophobia (Fear of Halloween)

Quote: “Luann, just when I think you’ve said the stupidest thing ever, you keep talking.” – Hank Hill

Synopsis: Hank vows to teach Bobby "the true meaning of Halloween come hell or high water" after a new church member calls it a night for witches and Satanists and gets it cancelled.

Fear creeps in at (mm:ss): Goddamn that Junie Harper. She decries Halloween as a Satanic holiday, and gets the school to shut down Hank's "Haunted House" on the grounds that it violates the separation of church and state. Luanne and Bobby start to believe Junie when she says that Hank is a Satanist, and Hank has to fight against Junie's attempt to cancel Halloween for the whole town. Risking arrest, Hank dons an old costume and takes to the streets with his battle cry: "Trick or treat! Trick or treat!"

See also: Trick 'R' Treat; Murder Party; ... and there’s probably some other scary movies about Halloween, but I’m drawing a blank right now.
