Mr. Torrance

So on Halloween night, a cluster of kids comes up to the porch.  I'm handing out my top-shelf candy and I notice that a kid at the back of the small line is holding a white square with a jagged cut-out in the center of it.  When he gets to the door (and the top-shelf candy bowl I'm holding), he raises the square to his face and looks through the jagged hole.  He's holding an axe and a pillowcase with the other hand. 

Jack Torrance says "Trick-or-Treat!"

Behind me, on the TV, is THE SHINING.  I excitedly shout "DUDE!  This is an AMAZING costume!  LOOK!  The Shining is on the TV right now!"  The kid looks more excited than I do and says "No it isn't!  IS IT?!" and looks in and sees it playing behind me and adds "It's my favorite movie!"

He got more top-shelf candy than the others.
