October = Halloween = horror.
Here’s a snippet from “Tim and Sara,” about two friends who escape from a mental institution. In this scene, Sara is explaining why she had to break out.
“I’ve made some mistakes in my life, Tim. I’ve messed up. When they pointed it out, I realized it, and I realized I had to make up for it. Which is what I’m doing, right now. I won’t bore you with the details of the conversations we had. Just know that this is big. It’s my soul we’re talking about, a second chance. And the people at Kirkbride, they didn’t understand.”
