What is Your Favorite Halloween Movie?

Post by Lumeus » Wed Oct 04, 2017 6:09 am

For those of us in the northern hemisphere, the Harvest season is now upon us, and it is time once again to prepare for a change in the weather. Nigh are the days of corn mazes, hay rides, cozy attire, the fall of autumn leaves, and pumpkin spice everything.

The month of October culminates with the celebration of All Hallows Eve, and in preparation for that night of pumpkin carving, trick ‘r treating, cider sipping, and mischief making I encourage my fellow Collectivites to share their favorite Halloween movies.

I shall begin with a favorite of mine and many others, the widely beloved cult-classic:

Hocus Pocus

Witches, black magic, zombies, a talking black cat, Vinessa Shaw one of my first celebrity crushes, this movie has practically everything a family rated Halloween movie needs.

Saw the topic and my mind immediately went to Hocus Pocus as well. I have to watch it every year or it just isn't Halloween to me.

Just the best Halloween movie to teach you what Halloween is all about. Candy and monsters.

Halloweentown is my absolute favourite. Back when Disney channel originals weren't rubbish (or I was too young to notice).

Trick 'r Treat took me by surprise. It was supposed to be released in theaters for the '07 Halloween, but Warner Brothers shelved it for two years and then released it straight to dvd. It's a solid movie that discreetly throws nod after nod to other horror movies, and it does a good job of getting you in the mood for Halloween.

Too many to count a single movie as a favorite. But if hard-pressed I would admit to Murnau's Nosferatu. I find silent films much scarier than ordinary films. Not to mention this one is iconic of Vampires which are a Halloween staple.

I kinda disagree, when they did the original alien, they would play scary music to make you think something was going to happen and the director always kept scaring the actors to make the scenes real.
