|The Sunday News Recap 10.28.12
by Ryan Arthur
Laurie, what's the boogeyman?
Greetings, guys and ghouls, and welcome to the pre-Halloween edition of the Sunday News Recap, featuring the last seven days worth of reviews and features from the eFC/HBS mothership. We’ll also run down the box office numbers for the weekend and prep you for the week ahead. I’m Ryan, and I was working late on my Haftorah, when I heard a knock on my bedroom-doorah. I opened it up and to my surprise: there was a werewolf standing there with glowing gold eyes! He says “tomorrow, my son, you will be a man; but tonight's the time to join the wolfen clan: tomorrow you will stand at the bimah and pray but tonight let's gaze at the moon and bay.” Werewolf bar mitzvah; spooky, scary. Boys becoming men; men becoming wolves.
Right. Moving on.
