Hubie Hlloween is a movie where Adam Sandler is seen to play all kinds of characters. From the sarcastic everyman to the eccentric goofball, his characters can definitely be something never seen before at times and, at the very least, something that stays with you. But one aspect of Sandler’s Hubie Halloween character, Hubie Dubois, is actually derived from the actor’s real life.
Adam Sandler’s recent comedy release streaming on Netflix is about a Halloween fan that monitors his hometown of Salem, Massachusetts in order to make sure everyone is safely trick-or-treating. But one ironic and pretty funny part about Hubie Dubois’ character is that he gets frightened easily, making his job that much harder.
Well, Adam Sandler recently told Polygon that this particular aspect of the character is actually true to his own personality, “In real life, I get scared pretty easy. When I come home and the lights are off, I’m not excited, I don’t like that. [laughs] I’ll push my wife in there, I go, ‘What’s going on? Come on, come on, check out the kitchen.’ It’s pathetic.”
Though, we can all agree that Hubie Dubois’ character being easily scared was one of the better parts of the entire movie. This tiny little detail makes his character much more likeable, one for being courageous enough to look over the Halloween festivities and secondly, for being freaked out easily by the consistent Halloween scares.
Gotta admit that Sandler has done quite a job in the movie and even if he is scared easily, his performance in the horror-comedy has been the one to appreciate.
