The following has nothing to do with entrepreneurship and very little to do with business of any kind. I just felt like having a little Halloween fun.
No studio has yet gone hitless
When a movie scared folks shitless.
Dracula and Frankenstein
Did wonders for the bottom line
Ghosts, gorillas, mummy queens
Psychopaths and shower scenes
And though they make the critics sick,
People love the slasher flick,
Which follows these unwritten rules:
Adults are almost always fools.
The heroines resist boys’ urgings,
And survive the spree as virgins,
While everyone who’s having sex is
Butchered like those kids in Texas.
But let’s face it, since Bram Stoker,
Most horror flicks are mediocre
The great ones few and far between,
With none surpassing Halloween.
Which spawned a million copycats
With Freddie this, or Jason that,
Not to mention every sequel
But other freaks could never equal
Silent slasher Michael Myers
Whose stony face shows no desires,
No love, no hate, no motivation,
But fondness for evisceration.
He strangles naked P J Soles
And leaves her boyfriend full of holes.
(And Soles, for all you trivia types
Played the hot MP in Stripes.)
And only Jamie Lee escapes
Despite a series of close scrapes.
Michael’s shot by Doctor Loomis
And falls two floors, but his doom is
Did I mention this was scary?
We see Michael flattened on the ground,
But next we look, he’s not around.
Cut to credits, cue the theme
And hope nobody heard you scream.
