I come from a country where halloween is not a tradition, yet we seem to adapt it year by year. And I must admit, I do not hate it. I love pumpkins ( not just carving, pumpkin soup is the best think you can eat in fall! ) and I love all lovely creatures connected to halloween. No, I will not dress up and go to a party, I will stay at my warm warm home and sleep and cuddle and watch movies. I must admit this is one of my fav movie seasons and that is why I offer you a list of movies to watch at halloween. Yes, they are childish and cheesy but they make great mach with pumpkin soup, popcorn with caramel and orange and… Oh, many ideas. (Can you tell I’m hungry and it’s almost lunch time yet I see no food in close future?)
So here we go!
#5 The Addams Family
One word to describe this: Wednesday! I loved that girl since I was little and still love watching her now. Creepy little animal who tortured her brother and anyone around? Yes, please. I am quite sure that we have all seen this movies many many times and I keep getting back to it almost every year.
#4 Harry Potter
I need a Harry Potter marathon soon. And what better time than halloween? I grew up reading those books ( heck, I was even in London few days after releasing fourth book and been searching for it in five or so book shops) and movies are a fun little distraction. They relax me and amuse me no matter how many times I watch them. And if you watch the feasts they’re having you might get some halloweeny food ideas. And yes, #teamHermione forever.
#3 Alice in wonderland
This doesn’t scream halloween per se, but it fits perfectly in a set of dark and mystery worlds. Twisted world in the rabbit hole with Mad Hatter and rabit and cat and and mushrooms and colours and pretty flowers and tea parties and piglet. You know, the one that Queen uses to rest her feet on? It is so adorable. SO CUTE! Erm, yeah, sorry for this intermezzo.
#2 Rocky Horror Picture Show
I came across this classic quite late, I’ve seen it for the first time just last time. Before that I thought it is just a theatre show. Well it is not. And freaky is freaky in a funny way here. Really funny. Transvestite, golden pants, all the colourfull and loud characters there make show unforgettable and an classic to watch not only at halloween time. Touch-a toucha-a touch-a touch me, I wanna feel diiirty..
#1 Nightmare Before Christmas
Jack Skellington is a main character in this halloween/christmas movie. I can’t never decide when will I watch it, so it is just a matter of free time at halloween or christmas. It’s dark, it’s cute, charming, freakish and all around cool. No, I do not know it’s a children movie. Or at least I am ignoring the fact quite good. This is halloween, this is halloween, halloween, halloween.
So this is my list of really cute and adorable fiction worlds movies which make me happy. What movies will you watch this year when you will have to cure a hangover from the best halloween party?
