Its October, so lets talk Halloween.
Actually lets talk Halloween Movies!
I used to hate scary movies. I’m talking I would cry, and sleep with my light on, and this was in college! Then I started dating this guy that would one day end up being my husband. He loved scary movies. And now that I have him to check under my bed and close the closet door, the movies don’t seem that scary anymore!
My husband and I started a tradition that every year after Halloween is over, and the kids are in bed sleeping, we stay up late and watch a scary movie.
So here is my list of my top 10 favourite Halloween movies!
(These are not in any real order.)
1. Edward Scissorhands. Tim Burton is amazing at what he does. And Johnny Depp, well I don’t think I really need to say anything more.
2. The Nightmare Before Christmas. Again Tim Burton. I saw this for the first time last year, and couldn’t help wondering what the heck too me so long to watch it! It was actually a pretty decent movie.
3. Harry Potter movies. Not really “Halloween”, but come on its filled with Witches, Wizards and all things magical. Not like I really need an excuse to watch Harry Potter movies, I love them all!
4. Sleepy Hollow. Johnny Depp. Need I say more? Again Tim Burton. I think I am starting to sense a theme here, are you?
5. Practical Magic. Love Sandra Bullock. Ok, so it doesn’t have Johnny Depp in it, but I still love this movie! Sisterly love, witches, magic, and love!
6. Casper! I love Casper! What is not to love, its Casper the Friendly Ghost! I love this one because I remember watching it when I was younger and now I can watch it with my kids!
7. Ghostbusters. Such a classic. I remember this movie scaring me so bad when I was younger. Still every time I hear eggs cooking I think of this movie, and that scene where the eggs popped out and started cooking on her countertop.
8. Trick ‘r Treat. I don’t even know where to start with this one. I have such a love hate relationship with it. It scared me the first time I saw it. I think it is one of those movies that is bad, but so bad it makes it good, so really it is a good movie. You know?
9. Interview With The Vampire. Brad Pitt. That is all.
10. Nightmare On Elm Street. All of them. Oh those movies, the whole it happens in your dream thing, oh man, that gets to me. And if you watch the first one, a very young Johnny Depp.
