Spooky season is officially here, which means there’s fright-filled fun happening all month long on Freeform Network during its “31 Nights of Halloween” campaign. This year’s schedule is chock-full of Halloween tricks and treats, such as Hocus Pocus, Beetlejuice, Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas, and many, many more.
Partners is also getting into the spirits with its “Not So Spooky Banking” campaign where Members can receive a spooky t-shirt as part of our Join, Refer, Apply promotion. We’re also talking to cast members all month to learn about their favorite Halloween films, and having some fun of our own.
To kick things off, we had a chance to connect with our Partners Marketing Technology and Campaign Manager, Sean, to find out what Spooktacular tale is his favorite Halloween classic.
Partners: Halloween is upon us, Sean. What’s your favorite “31 Nights of Halloween” film to watch at this time of year, and why?
Sean: Hands down, it’s Ghostbusters. I watched it several times as a kid, and, of course, I loved the theme song, so it stuck with me.
Partners: Oh, yeah, that’s a good one! Do you remember when you saw Ghostbusters for the first time?
Sean: No, not exactly, but it was sometime in the 80s.
Partners: Who is your favorite character?
Sean: It’s definitely Peter Venkman—he’s the funniest. Bill Murray kills me every time!
Partners: Sounds like you’ve seen this movie more than a few times…
Sean: Oh, yeah—I’ve lost count. I’ve probably seen it about 30 times at this point.
Partners: In that case, you must have a favorite scene…
Sean: Of course, it’s when Ray, played by Dan Aykroyd, accidentally chooses the form of the “Destructor”, and it turns out to be the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. The moment that is revealed to the rest of the Ghostbusters team is classic.
Partners: Do you have a favorite quote from the film?
Sean: Yes, it’s when Winston, played by Ernie Hudson, says, “Ray, when someone asks you if you’re a God, you say ‘yes’!”
Partners: Have you ever dressed up as a character from the film?
Sean: Not yet, but maybe this’ll be the year!
Sounds like fun Sean! We sure hope you share some pictures if you do!
