It’s Halloween night, Sally and Linus are waiting patiently in a pumpkin patch for the ‘Great Pumpkin’ to come along with his bag of toys and other goodies.
Then suddenly, out of nowhere, this thing pops out of the ripe pumpkins.
Sally screams, drops her sack of candy, throws both arms up into the air and runs for the hills.
Linus, scared beyond words (and a little bit let down, because his beloved hero is a Bigfoot with a pumpkin head), just stands there, frozen.
After a few seconds the statue that is Linus just falls to the ground.
The pumpkin headed Bigfoot thing, stops, looks at Linus, then eats up all of Sally’s candy and walks away into the crisp fall night.
I don’t know why I felt like ruining a beloved children’s holiday special just now, but it’s what came to me after seeing these brand-new poster images from Count Zee’s ‘Missouri Monster’ inspired movie, “Momo”.
Actually, nothing that I have ever written has made me laugh out loud like this before.
Okay, I’m composed.
Actually, the funny thing (really) is that every time someone (like me) mentions that Momo has a ‘pumpkin head’, Zee always responds by saying that the monster doesn’t have a pumpkin for a head, it’s just orange and shaped like one.
Well, call me stupid, but doesn’t the top of the monster’s dome have a stem?
Anyway, ‘Momo’ was originally to completed this past March, but has run longer than expected. Zee and his crew a still feverishly working on the film, with hopes of having it completed very soon.
I can only hope that all you “Peanuts” fans out there can forgive me…..
