My Halloween Movie List

We found out that Andy is going to be at a conference the week of Halloween, and that means that I have unfettered control of the TV so I am queuing up my Halloween Watchlist. Honestly, Andy would probably be okay with most of this, but this way I don’t have to feel bad about picking up take out and spending the evenings’ binge watching my favorite spooky movies. Actually they are more spooky-magic-y-ish than scary; I am a huge scaredy cat, and I can freak myself out very easily. Even when I’m not home alone. We watched the first Paranormal Activity, and I had nightmares for a week – poor Andy got punched in the face while I was flailing about one night. Anyway, here is my Top 20 Spooky-ish Movies.

  • Practical Magic

  • Sleepy Hollow

  • Nightmare Before Christmas

  • The Addams Family

  • The Craft

  • Pan’s Labyrinth

  • Casper

  • Corpse Bride

  • Edward Scissorhands

  • Stardust

  • The Haunting

  • Interview with a Vampire

  • Queen of the Damned

  • The Village

  • Van Helsing

  • Hellboy

  • Hellboy II

  • Coraline

  • Bettlejuice

  • The Sixth Sense

Honestly, I am really excited. I decided to participate a bit more in Halloween this year, and it has been completely worth it. I can’t believe I resisted for so long! What are the movies on your wishlist? Is there something only mildly scary I should be watching?
