Information

i adore this film so much i can remember watching it for the 1st time with my little sister and brother and having to skip past the sisters returning as the green smoke and rattling floor boards scared my brother to tears


i was always Sarah to my sister as she realy thought i was a blonde bimbo lol

when GoldieNeko decided to do Winnie i had to do sarah it was a must and its such an easy costume that is perfect for Halloween
