Famous ones from history include Rachel and Ross from Friends, Luke and Lorelei from Gilmore Girls, Jim and Pam from The Office, Chuck and Blair from Gossip Girl, etc. I could go on and on,…

But that wasn’t the last time Wes Craven’s monsters would invade my cultural landscape. Years later I was home alone on a stormy night when the power cut out. Being from the South (land of actual storms), I was pretty used to this sort of thing and gave it only a passing thought. I was less composed, however, when my cell rang and the raspy voice at the…
