Blogtober Day 11: Not So Scary Halloween Flicks

It’s fall, it’s fall, it’s fall, it’s FALL. Even if it’s 75 degrees, it’s FALL.

As many of you have probably been able to tell, I’m a little obsessed. I’m also the kind of person who loves feeling spooky, but not TERRIFIED. In a world of “love it or hate it” Halloween people, what do you do when you fall in the middle? Well, that’s why I’m here.

1. Halloweentown/Halloweentown II: Kalabar’s Revenge/Halloweentown High/Return to Halloweentown

Of course I had to list all four! You can’t just watch one and ignore the others! All of the Halloweentown movies are stellar and give you the sort of Halloween vibes you liked as a kid (and that I still like now). Fun, festive, with just the right hint of spook to send little shivers down your spine, but not actually scare you. Real talk, though: why did they think we wouldn’t notice they replaced Marnie?!

2. Hocus Pocus

Again, I feel like this is a very obvious choice, but it’s one of my all time favorites. I’m defintely going to watch this one this year with my Hocus Pocus coffee mug and some tea. It’s definitely spooky, it’s hilarious, and it’s been a classic of mine for many years.

3. The Conjuring

There are about two horror movies I can really stand, and The Conjuring is one of them. Don’t get me wrong, I still hide my head in my blanket and make my fiance stand outside the bathroom door if I have to go in case there’s a demon, but something about being all snuggled up and terrified really just gets me ready for fall.

4. The Shining

Aaaand this is the other horror movie I can reasonably stand. Again, it’s terrifying, but it’s also just so incredibly well done that I can’t help but enjoy it. The acting is brilliant, the concept, the effects,  I’m really a big fan! Even if you don’t like super scary movies, this one is a cinematic work of art, and a total must see.

5. It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!

MY FAVORITE!!! I love this movie so much; I honestly don’t feel like it’s Halloween unless I watch this at least once. It’s just SO CUTE! And it gives me so many nostalgic feels. I like to watch this one ON Halloween, or at least the day before. It’s just so fitting.

So there we are! Just a few of my favorite Halloween movies. And by a few, I mean eight (don’t forget Halloweentown has four in the series!). And I could honestly go on and on…don’t even get me STARTED on the Disney Channel original Twitches. And also the Halloween episodes of The Office. There’s just SO MANY!

Blogtober Day 4: FALL BUCKET LIST!!

Hey what’s up hello,

Happy Blogtober Day 4! For some reason, my days keep escaping me, and I keep not getting to these posts until the evening, so I’m going to try to turn that around. SORRY.

Anyway, I thought it might be fun to swap fall bucket lists! I’ve already gotten started on a bit of mine, but I’m always open to adapting it, so if you have anything you think I should add, let me know!

fall bucket list

I’ve done a few of these already, like apple picking, taking cute fall pictures, going away for the weekend, and going on a brunch date, but I’m planning to knock off a few more this weekend!

What’s on your fall bucket list? Share with me!
