I realize today is Wednesday and I should be posting a short story. But…I have been lazy and my story isn’t ready yet. So, I thought I would do a fun little list because it is the month of Halloween (seriously they should change it from October to Halloween) and it’s my favorite time of the year!
I thought I would share with you a list of must watch movies for the month of Halloween!
Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas. Duh! How could you not watch this movie?? It’s amazing and spooky, but not too spooky for younger kids. Let’s have a family movie night and watch this!
Hocus Pocus. Another no brainer. Another classic that you can not go the entire month of Halloween without seeing at least once. Of course, if you are like me you will see it at least 5 times…
I love this movie so much! It warms my heart and Devon Sawa (Casper) was probably my first movie star crush. I still love the moment at the end when Casper gets to dance with Kat. Another favorite part of mine is when Casper asks Kat “Can I keep you?” Ugh! my heart! Seriously going to get that tattooed on me at some point in my life.
Yeah, I went there. I love all of the Halloweentown movies. They are so adorable and full of all the things I love about Halloween.
Yes…I love Tim Burton and all of his movie feed my love for the strange and dark. Corpse Bride is one of my favorites…actually all of them are my favorites. In all honesty, I will use any excuse to watch this movie.
I watched this one just yesterday and what a cute little movie. I loved it. And I think it is the perfect Halloween movie.
Come on….like you didn’t know this one was going to be here. It’s the greatest family ever!
Okay, okay. This is not a Halloween must. It is a LIFE MUST! What better time to watch a strange movie about a goblin king stealing babies than Halloween.
Now, I know you are wondering why I don’t have the classics on this list. Like Halloween, Trick ‘r Treat, Ginger Snaps, I Know What you Did Last Summer, Nightmare on Elm Street, and Donnie Darko. Maybe my list is a little kid friendly…or maybe I am just a child at heart. Maybe, all those other movies just bore the crap out of me! Except Ginger Snaps, that is actually a pretty good (although cheesy) movie. And there are other movies that I could have named. But these are the movies that I watch all month long…honestly it’s an all year long thing, but I usually watch them all more than once in October.
Tell me, what are your must watch movies for Halloween?
