Celebrações de Halloween

Saiu uma entrevista no site zap2it com o Eric Kripke a falar do episódio de amanhã, 'Bedtime Stories'.

'' Fans of The CW won't have to wait for next year for another Halloween episode, this time from the network's other horror-themed show. The drama "Supernatural" offers up "Bedtime Stories," a bloody take on "Grimms' Fairy Tales," airing Thursday, Nov. 1.

"One day," executive producer Erik Kripke says, "we want to hit the target where we actually air on Halloween. But we're coming right on the tail of Halloween, and we have a very cool Halloween episode that we're excited about.

"You should be with your trick-or-treat bag, stuffing facefuls of Reese's peanut butter cups in your mouth, watching 'Supernatural.'"

As to whether viewers should hop back into their costumes, Kripke says, "I do, not necessarily because it's Halloween, but because it would be cool if people were wearing costumes and watching our show."

Currently in its third season, "Supernatural" follows demon-hunting brothers Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Sam (Jared Padalecki) Winchester as they crisscross the country in search of the terrifying reality behind tall tales and urban legends.

"You know," Kripke says, "the 'Grimms' Fairy Tales' were the folklore and urban legends of their day. The Grimm brothers (were) really two brothers traveling around Europe, investigating the supernatural, not unlike our own boys."

Anyone who has investigated the original versions of these tales knows that, over the years since Jakob and Wilhelm Grimm first published them in 1812, they've been sanitized for our protection.

"Absolutely," Kripke says, "and that's actually almost word for word some of the dialogue in the episode. There's the discussion of [the fact that] these stories do not end happily ever after. They're actually awful stories filled with sex and violence and cannibalism. They just got sanitized over the years. "So we had a lot of fun going back to the bloody origins of these stories and re-creating them for 'Supernatural.'"

The episode also features a crossroad demon, played by Padalecki's girlfriend, actress Sandra McCoy.

"She won that part fair and square and was the best read," Kripke says. "We were just happy that we were finally able to put her in the show." ''
