Happy Halloween! Last on my list is Firestarter (1984) starring Drew Barrymore (Charlie McGee) and David Keith (Andy McGee). The movie is based on Stephen King’s novel of the same name.

I love this movie. Unlike my previous favorite horror movie moments from the past month, this part isn’t funny to me. It’s serious in that this little girl lost her father and she is pissed. These people were responsible for his death. And I urged her on as I watched her get her revenge. It was shocking.

Prior to this scene, Charlie killed the man who murdered her father. But she went on to seek revenge against those who were responsible as well.

Just watch the whole scene if you wish. Rent this if you haven’t seen it before. It’s a classic.


  1. I loved this movie. Drew Barrymore was quite the child actor. I think she was better back then, or maybe it's just the corny roles she takes now.
