Festivities come with their own traditions and we make our own movie traditions for every occasion. Similarly, all of us have our own Halloween night favorites, whether it’s a gory slasher like Scream, a fun Tim Burton movie like Beetlejuice or the family-friendly classic Hocus Pocus. Every year there are new additions to the spooky collection, competing to become a Halloween tradition.
This year too we have a new contender with Adam Sandler s Netflix release of Hubbie Halloween. Here’s what Sandler had to say about the movie becoming a tradition, “We kept saying we wanted to do a Halloween movie.
I remember when I was a kid and Charlie Brown did a Halloween special and it was like the greatest thing ever that you had something dedicated to Halloween. So we kind of wanted to make a movie that you know, hopefully, every year they go, ‘Oh yeah, let’s watch Hubie Halloween and get into the spirit.”
In other words, Hubie Halloween was made specifically as an entry into the Halloween classics library. While appearing on The Drew Barrymore Show, Adam Sandler explained that he has always wanted to make a movie devoted to the holiday with his collaborators that could be enjoyed year after year by people of all ages.
