Halloween (2009) - Annie Brackett

We all, or maybe some of us will always have that one true friend who will go through Hell and back with you if not for you. Annie survived Michael's attacks the first time but was scarred for life. Her scars were a telltale sign of pain, grief, and suffering in the face of loyalty. One can't help but look at her and want to cry. She could have severed ties with Laurie if it meant never having to go through the traumatizing ordeal again. Maybe it could have saved her life. But instead, she let Laurie move in with her and Laurie was too shocked, traumatized, and mentally broken to appreciate it.

Laurie cannot help who she is related to we know this. The damage was beyond her control. Annie was patient enough to comprehend that. She was not going to let Laurie drown in her own guilt. However, Laurie was already drowned. Annie tried to throw her a life ring but it was unfortunately too late. One of them had to stay sane to save the other but it made no difference. "Friends To The End" is a quote that gets abused too frequently. However, Annie never abused that quote.

A word to the wise: In a world full of fake, selfish, and backstabbing friends, be an Annie Brackett...
