Welcome to what we hope will be a recurring feature here at Holiday Film Reviews. We plan to feature Holiday-related scenes from movies that aren't primarily built around a holiday.
I'm a big fan of the 2003 film American Splendor, and the comic that inspired it. For those who don't know American Splendor was a self-published comic book memoir that focused on the day-to-day struggles of Cleveland file clerk (and all-around everyman) Harvey Pekar. Pekar sadly passed away in 2010, but he appears as himself and narrates the American Splendor movie.

I don't know if this Halloween segment ever appeared in the comic, but it feels true to Pekar's recounting of his life, here it is, enjoy:
