Halloween Must Watch List

Tuesday, October 28, 2014

Halloween is only four days away so it's time to really get into the spirit. One of my favorite ways to get into the spirit is to watch all of my favorite Halloween classics. I'm not the biggest fan of scary movies so my favorites tend to be of a less scary variety. Here are some of my Halloween film favorites! 

1. The Haunted Mansion - One my favorite rides at Disneyland, I was ecstatic to see the story brought to life. Disney added in a lot of intricate details from the ride and Eddie Murphy and company gave it a good dose of humor. Definitely a must see for lovers of this Disney attraction. 
2. Casper - The friendly ghost, the friendliest ghost of all! It's enough to just see Christina Ricci and Devon Sawa as child actors! It's a classic I love watching every Halloween, especially the scene with the Up and At 'Em machine. Now, who doesn't want one of those?
3. The Tower of Terror - Another one of my favorite Disney rides, the Tower of Terror is a great family Halloween movie! Starring Kirsten Dunst and Steve Gutenberg, the film focuses on five people who mysteriously disappeared in an elevator in the 20's. It's got crazy ghosts, evil witches, and a teenage and anxsty Kirsten Dunst. Win, win, win!
4. Hocus Pocus - One of the ultimate Halloween classics, if you have not seen Hocus Pocus, please stop what you are doing and immediately go watch it! I can't even explain how good it is. The film focuses on three witch sisters who rise from beyond the grave when a virgin lights a black flame candle. Oh and, did I mention, Sarah Jessica Parker plays one of the witches. Seriously, go watch right now!
5. Scared Shrekless - One of my new animated Halloween favorites, Dreamworks Spooky Stories Scared Shrekless. It's a family friendly tv short where Shrek and his friends decide to host their own scary story off in the abandoned Duloc castle to see who will be crowned the King of Halloween. Guess what, it's on Netflix streaming now too!

  3. Funny story about my casper movie. Our house got broken into once when I was a kid. My Casper VHS movie was in the VCR and I never saw it again... luckily the VCR was already broken and the movie was forever stuck inside. So those VCR-hoodlum's stole a broken piece of equipment. Ha.
