Halloween is almost upon us! I am so excited and slightly stressed, for I haven’t shopped for my costume yet.
I should be okay though. Hopefully ,I can gather something from the thrift store to make my costume. My boyfriends costume is so much easier, sigh. I won’t tell you what my costume will be, but look here to see which characters I am thinking of dressing up as for Halloween.
To get in the Halloween spirit and mood these are the movies I will be watching.
1.) Sleepy Hollow & The Legend of Sleepy Hollow
I know these are two different movies, so I kind of cheated, but they are based off the same story by Washington Irving.
The first one I watched every Halloween for the longest time on VHS when I was a kid. I remember being scared every time by the Horseman. Nothing can beat the original, I recommend watching this one first.
Now my parents bought the Tim Burton movie quite a few years ago and when I saw it my first thought was “Oh Great another Johnny Depp/Tim Burton movie. Actually it is really good and I really enjoy it.
Both are good for the Halloween season and a must watch to get into the spirit.
2.) The Nightmare Before Christmas
Yes, another Tim Burton movie. This is one of the few movies one can watch both around Christmas time and Halloween, so why not watch it. Also, I love Jack’s Lament from the movie as well. So haunting and beautiful.
3.) Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island
One of my favorite Scooby-Doo movies. I watched this a ton when I was little and this to scared me. I loved the idea that the Zombies were…well I won’t give it away for those that haven’t seen it. I will tell you though, the Island is cursed. Go watch it, I love it!
4.) Hocus Pocus
For as long as my boyfriend and I have been dating we had been trying to find this movie on DVD in stores, whether used or new. It was impossible, we almost broke down to order it online, when my boyfriend found it by chance at McKay’s! We have already watched this movie about 15 times (at least) since October began.
5.) The Rocky Horror Picture Show
This movie freaked me out a little when I was younger, it is still slightly scary (I scare easily) but for me you can’t get in the mood without watching Rocky Horror. Every year I watch it and every year I’m still left confused, but amused by it.
Do you watch any of these movies around Halloween? What Halloween movies do you watch that is not on this list?
