While I’m more of a Christmas girl than a Halloween one, my boyfriend loves Halloween so we sort of have a tradition. We absolutely must watch the episode “Halloween with The Addams Family” from the ’64 TV series.
It’s just a hilarious episode and I never get tired of watching it every year. And then we usually follow it up with a Halloween-themed movie. Here are some of my all-time favorites (you’ll notice I’m quite a scaredy cat when it comes to films, minimal horror on the list):
The Mummy trilogy
My love for The Mummy and its sequels knows no bounds. It must be said that I almost became an Egyptologist after seeing the first movie.
Witches. That soundtrack. Nicole Kidman and Sandra Bullock. How can you go wrong?
This movie surprised me. It’s endearing and funny. Everyone from my mom to my siblings to the boyfriend loved it.
The Monster Squad
Is there another movie that assembles all the great classic horror monsters? I didn’t think so.
Shaun of the Dead
I’m always looking for another occasion to re-watch this beloved film and All Hallow’s Eve is the perfect excuse!
The only real scary movie on the list. I read the book. I watched the movie. I almost peed my pants ’cause of both.
Happy Hump Day!
