It’s Halloween time again. The colorfully fun prelude to the holiday season that adds a little scary flare to the occasion.
I have traditional Halloween movies I like to watch between dishing out candy for the kids and digging through what’s left of the bags for myself.
My Halloween Horror Movie List
Halloween – The original version is definitely the best and it goes well with Reese’s peanut butter cups.
The Shining – Stanley Kubrick’s version of the Stephen King horror classic. Its creepy soundtrack is perfect for sending chills up your spine.
The Nightmare Before Christmas – This adorably animated musical is one of the best works of Halloween fantasy ever. A Tim Burton production. I recommend it to anyone that hasn’t seen it.
Psycho – I love Alfred Hitchcock’s directing. I give the candy and cake a break, drink plenty of water and afterward plan out the exercise regimen for the following day.
I like to attend at least one Halloween party and keep the costume simple with mostly wild clothes and some kind of decoration on my head. I gave up the crazy Halloween makeup last year when I couldn’t get the stuff off. I had to exfoliate three times.
We enjoyed a great party at work. I work with artists, so there are always amazing decorations and designs.
The scariest element of Halloween is the brisk and whistling wind with a mysterious howl. I’m happy to report that Florida is having some of that weather right now. It’s perfect for a midnight scare. Movies, costumes and, all the general fright of the holiday is kind of like riding on a roller coaster without the nausea. Unless of course, I overdo it with the candy.
I came upon some cake recipes to make with leftover Halloween candy on Delish
HGTV has many good holiday ideas worth checking out.
Remember not to be like the idiots in the horror movies. If you stop by your neighbor’s house and see a bloody ax on the floor and no one else around. Don’t go looking for them. Run like hell and call the police.
Happy Halloween everyone! 🎃
