So A Racist Came To Your Halloween Party

Here’s what to do.

Christmas is depressing, Thanksgiving is exhausting, Valentine's Day is like a love letter from your heart telling you to live under a bridge. The only good holiday is Halloween.

So naturally, you are having a Halloween party, because Halloween parties combine all the good things about parties: alcohol, spooky snacks, cobwebs, plastic spiders, the inescapable inevitability of your own gruesome and regrettable death, and people who don't totally look like themselves so you can reasonably pretend that you weren't avoiding someone because "I just didn't recognize you in that hat."

The bad news, though, is that your life is likely filled with ding-dongs who think Halloween is a good time to wear racist costumes. Like this.

I'm A Huge Scaredy Cat And I Tried To Watch Horror Films Every Night For A Week

And I hated every minute of it.

Rebecca Hendin for BuzzFeed

The first movie I remember walking out of was Hocus Pocus. I recall crying as I ran to the exit full of fear and regret. I remember watching The Witches for the first time, I didn't finish that either. I walked out of The Others in 2001, the Orcs forced me out of the first Lord of the Rings film and to this day I've still never seen a Final Destination movie.

I'm a coward, loud and proud, a total scaredy cat. I'm terrified of almost everything. You don't need to tell me how pathetic it is to be frightened of movies, I get that. Which is why this year I challenged myself to watch one scary movie every night for a week.

1. I must not have seen the movie before.
2. I must watch the movies after dark, in the dark.
3. I must not get too drunk while watching.
4. I must watch the movies alone.
