When I was in middle school, I was obsessed with Drew Barrymore. I watched every film she was in. Because I’m that old, my family would get me VHS tapes of her movies for Christmases and birthdays. One year, I got Scream.
I did not watch the movie when it first came out, and being a kid, I had heard little about it. I knew Drew Barrymore was on the cover, though, and I was excited. I popped the tape in my VCR, not knowing what to expect, and began a love for the horror genre that has endured my whole life.
Here is the post I had planned for yesterday. I’ve been writing a lot about Goosebumps and Fear Street, and while I still plan to continue making my way through those series, I want to write about something different every now and then to show you more things I’m into so that you can get to know me a little better. I grew up loving super heroes like many kids in America. There’s something about a (often) masked crusader fighting for good against evil that is exciting. Secret identities, powers bestowed upon individuals that seem more like an unwanted responsibility than something fun, and some of the best villains imaginable… I love super hero stories.
In this entry, I’m going to count down my top five favorite super heroes. My list might surprise you.
