Morning, book fam!
I am thrilled to do my very first Blogoween post! So I’m not surprised that I want to start off my week-long adventure with my favourite Halloween films. I love many titles, but some have rightfully earned their place on my must-watch list.
So without much ado, here are the top five films I love watching in October/for Halloween!
The Nightmare before Christmas
There has never been a movie that has more meaning than this one. naturally, the Pumpkin King holds a special place in my heart. And I simply cannot celebrate Halloween (or Christmas) until I watch Tim Burton’s masterpiece.
Oddly enough, I hate musicals, and yet my one of my favourite movies is one.
Yes, I am a big Tim Burton fan. And yes, I was one before he got popular and hip. But I’ll always love Sleepy Hollow. I’ve read the book and watched all the adaptations. But the way Burton spins this well-told tale is what makes me love it all the more.
The Sanderson sisters, the black flame candle, Max and Dani, Binx, and Billy are what make this movie iconic. I’ve watched Hocus Pocus countless times, but this flick never gets old. I love watching Hocus Pocus!
I’ve watched scary and cute. But the Conjuring has caused sheer terror in me. Since I watched Scream, most horror movies haven’t frightened me. But when this one came onto the scene, I never knew my heart could jump out of my chest, especially with Bathsheba Sherman (the poltergeist) and Annabelle.
I hate poltergeist flicks. They freak me out more than any other title. But I still question my sanity when I watch this.
The Cabin in the Woods
Joss Whedon brings a new twist to the horror genre. I didn’t have a lot of hope for the movie because I wasn’t sure if Whedon could live up to my high expectations for a horror movie. But he takes this one to a different level by bringing comedy and insanity to the movie. I love it!
