Top 5 Fav Halloween Movies

October is one of my favorite months of the year! Spooky decorations, cooler weather, and another reason to dress up in costume! Halloween is in just a few days, and I've seen several of my friends post all month what movies they've been watching to get in the holiday mood. So here is my list of my favorite Halloween movies!

1. The Halloween Tree
This is my all-time favorite Halloween movie. I remember watching it as a kid and not only enjoying it immensely but learning, too. It was the first time I saw how Halloween is celebrated in different ways throughout the world. The main story of how the kids are trying to save their friend will pull your heartstrings, too.

2. Saw II
I'm not a big fan of horror movies. I actually can't handle gore all that well. But for some reason the second Saw movie is one of my favorites. I still watch it with semi-closed eyes, though! I like how hey are all in a house together and each room has a different "game". Out of the few Saw films I've seen this one stands out in my mind as the most exciting to watch. (Be sure to check out my makeup tutorial for Billy - the creepy doll from the movie!)

3. Edward Scissorhands
It's hard not to include all of Tim Burton's movies on my list, but Edward Scissorhands seems to be a very special film to me. The idea of a man with hands of scissors should come off as unnerving, but this films makes Edward appear more magical and soft than creepy or scary. If anything, it's the rest of the town that makes your skin crawl which is exactly why this movie is so great. It's beautiful and happy and sad and totally great for Halloween.

4. The Addams Family
Dun dun dun dun *clap clap* dun dun dun dun *clap clap*
"They're creepy and they're kooky; mysterious and spooky!"
Gosh this movie is so rad I almost stopped blogging just go watch it right now. The Addams Family totally embodies Halloween for me. Each character is so unique with mysterious personal characteristics! Put the whole family together in a wickedly awesome house and you've got one of the coolest families on the block.

5. Jeepers Creepers
I'm just as surprised as you are that Jeepers Creepers is on my list since I don't like scary movies. But whenever it is on TV I can't help but watch it. It's a rather simple story, but jeez that monster really freaks me out. It's one of the few horror movies that I actually like the ending of, too. And the song is just so catchy and fun to sing! "Jeepers creepers, where'd you get those peepers?"


Honorable mention:
Hocus Pocus, Underworld, Sleepy Hollow
 You can't have a Halloween list without Hocus Pocus! It's a must-watch movie for the holiday. And Underworld is my favorite vampire movie. I would love to cosplay as Selene someday. Also, when I saw Sleepy Hollow in the theaters I couldn't get over how beautiful it was. Christopher Walken also spooked me quite a bit.

  2. I love Edward Scissorhands so much, my heart can barely stand it. And I too have a soft spot for the Underworld movies, although I think Underworld: Rise of the Lycans (the prequel) is my favourite. Lucien is a fox (and a wolf) lol.
