13 Days of Halloween for the Family: Day 12, E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial

For the twelfth day of 13 Days of Halloween for the Family, we recommend E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial.

As a child this was one of my favorite movies, and is one  of only two films that I’ve seen in theaters three times.  And I must admit, the product placement of Reese’s Pieces and Speak & Spell probably helped to make me a fan of both.

Despite all of the changes through the years of the releases (it’s no longer cool to be a terrorist or a hippie for Halloween, and guns should be replaced with walkie-talkies), this is, and always will be, a classic.
