The mall… That icon of consumerism and setting for many great horror movies: “Dawn of the Dead”, “Chopping Mall“, and “Night of the Comet” just to name a few. Let’s throw Midwood, and “Phantom of the Mall: Eric’s Revenge” in with that group. When Harv Posner, a greedy developer wants to build a mall in the city of Midwood, he starts buying up all the property he can get and moves out all the families. When when one last family won’t move out and holds up the whole project, they send a little muscle in to get the job done, burning down the home and the family inside – except for Eric. Now he’s back and he wants Harv to pay the piper.

I can’t even get my blood taken at the doctor’s office without practically passing out. Working in a medical supply warehouse would probably be pretty cool though. You get to see all types of weird medical equipment, and I’m sure all the different posters and stuff would be pretty cool. If I do ever decide to get a job at a medical supply warehouse, I’ll make sure to ask for a tour of the place before I accept any jobs. That way, I can see if they have any suspicious tanks or drums in their basement that say “In case of emergency, call the U.S. Army”.
