Halloween Contest – Day 3!

YES! Friday is finally here and I was so excited for it that I started celebrating  last night and now I’m a little hungover. Oops! 

I love having contests like this because your comments offer a respite from my boring day job. In between pretending to work and occasionally doing work, I check your comments and they make me laugh. Not LOL of course, after all, I have to pretend to be working hard and I can’t just be LOLing all over the place.

So before we get to today’s questions, here are a couple more fun facts for you (you know I love fun facts.)

1. Fifty percent of kids prefer to receive chocolate candy for Halloween, compared with 24% who prefer non-chocolate candy and 10% who preferred gum.  

Gum? Over candy? Little weirdos!!

2. Chocolate candy bars top the list as the most popular candy for trick-or-treaters with Snickers #1.

I love Snickers, it was always one of my favorites, so I guess that makes me a normal kid even though for many Halloweens I dressed as a homeless person…or a bum, as we called it back then.

3. Black cats were once believed to be witch’s familiars who protected their powers.

I had a black cat for 14 years….need I say more?

He protected my powers for 14 years


Now on to today’s questions:


Can you see her dirty pillows?


1. In the movie “Carrie,” played by Sissy Spacek, Carrie had a crazy mother who told her she could see her “dirty pillows” in the dress she was wearing to the prom. Carrie responded by saying “They’re breasts Mama.” Why would she refer to Carrie’s boobs as “dirty pillows?”


A. Because Carrie never washed her breasts in the shower.

B. Because they use that term in the Bible when referring to breasts

C.  Because Stephen King knew people would find it funny (he wrote it).

D. other – Your answer

2. Why am I convinced there is a serial killer somewhere near my mom’s house?

A. Because there are 5 miles of woods behind her house and it’s a perfect place for a serial killer

B.  Because it’s dark and it’s in Maine and I’ve read a lot of Stephen King books

C. A&B

D. other – your answer


Contest Rules:

Each day there will be two Halloween/Horror movie/Scary-related questions. Post your answers in the comment section. Each comment is an entry into the giveaway. On Halloween a winner will be chosen at random. The contest will conclude on Wednesday, October 31st. You get extra entries for posting Death to Hollywood – the Halloween Contest on Facebook or Twitter, and “liking” the Death to Hollywood page on Facebook.

1. You have to be at least 18 years old to enter (that’s for legal reasons. We do NOT want minors winning a prize)

2. You have to live in the United States because I think shipping internationally is a hassle.

3. You have to answer two Halloween/horror/scary questions as a comment on the blog.


About Death To Hollywood

My name is Celeste Donohue and I am a writer/comedian who started this blog to tell stories about my life growing up in a funeral home and my adult life which I have spent in Hollywood, California – hence the name, “Death To Hollywood”. Hopefully, you like to read those kinds of stories. If not, go read something serious and boring.....

    1. As you said, Carrie’s mother was crazy, she was religiously preoccupied, and maybe Carrie stuffed her bras with dirty little pillows to fill out the dress!
    2. Because it’s Maine and inbreeding causes insanity (and some times 6 fingers!)

  2. Kris says:

    That picture of Black Kitty is so cute!!!

    1. Dirty little pillows…..mother was a freak!!!
    2. It’s the woods, the unknown, the quiet…great place to dump a body with no one around to hear the screams:)

    Happy Freaky Friday:)

    1. D) She *was* going to use the euphemism “Celestial Treats”, but she thought that sounded just a little too classy.
    2. D) So that you’ll have an alibi. (“Not guilty, your honour — I swear it was the work of a serial killer that lives near her!”)

  4. mary donohue says:

    Answer to A andB is: You have a really good imagination.Love,Mom

  5. Josephine says:

    1. C, a little bit because I wouldn’t be surprised if King heard some thumper say this exact thing, and D, a little bit because, well after all, where does he rest his head after doing the dirty deed?

    2. C, Both A & B although if you read a lot of Stephen King novels you know there are also mad dogs, vampires and aliens in there too. 🙂

  6. Natalie says:

    1.) D. Because you use them to do dirty things.
    2.) C.

    I was (and still am) one of those weird kids who likes the gummy/sucker/gum (okay, not gum, gum sucks) candy over chocolate candy. It’s too rich, but I still want those celestial treats:)

  7. Y says:

    1. D Don’t even want to think about this one!
    2. C Isn’t that the reason Maine is a state of its own?

  8. Catherine ~ a friend of the elder sister.... says:

    Uhm…..first answer is I don’t even want to go there……
    Second answer is…..have you read Stephen King!?!
