Let me just paint a picture for you real fast:
I’m in my living room, the windows are open, it’s about 64 degrees outside, I can hear the leaves rustling, I am snuggled on my couch with a cozy blanket, and I have one of my favorite Halloween movies playing. I have a big, tall glass of ice water, a soda, and a bowl of popcorn sitting on my end table. Wafting in my direction is a pumpkin spice candle, and I just pushed play on one of my favorite fall movies.
This is the most cliche and basic scenario, but good lord I cannot wait to be painted right in the center of it.
As far as what movie is playing, I’m only picky in that my movie can’t and will never be scary. Or only very mild scary, because I’m the biggest chicken you will ever meet. I don’t even watch scary movie trailers.
So here’s my list of fall go-tos in no particular order:
Hocus Pocus (Okay this one is in order because this is the best Halloween movie ever made, don’t even try to argue. Also, I wasn’t obsessed with this movie until I was in my 20s, because I was scared of it when I was little and I thought it was scary so I didn’t watch it until my boss from my job in college told me it was more funny than scary This is a true story and not an exaggeration.)
Now & Then (I know you’re like this is NOT a Halloween movie, and I know. But while this is set in the summer, the end reminds me of going back to school, which happens in almost the fall so that’s why it makes the cut, and this is my list so I get to make/break the rules however I please.)
Harry Potter (series)
Halloweentown (series) (This is arguably my favorite DCOM series/movie ever created as well.
Teen Witch (I don’t know if this counts as Halloween either, but again, I get to be in charge of this list and I say because it
Double-Double Toil and Trouble (I am such a big chicken, I was scared of this movie when I first watched it when I was little.)
The last three are ones my friend suggested. She said “The Craft” may be a little scary for me, but I should include it and the other two. So here they are:
Death Becomes Her
