As the spooky season approaches, there is nothing better than closing the curtains, turning out all the lights, and snuggling under a blanket as you have the wits scared out of you.
No? Not your idea of fun? There are plenty of folk like you…
My good friend Claire loves all things Halloween but states clearly, “I don’t do horror.” Fair enough. Although it one of my favorite genres, it isn’t for everyone. So for all the folks who love Halloween but want some family friendly spooky fun that isn’t going to scare the willies out of them – there are plenty of great movies to choose from.
What, may you ask, am I doing this All Hallow’s Eve? Well, every year I throw
myself my son a party, invite all his friends over, decorate the house with more Halloween tat than you can shake a stick at, make some Oreo spiders and spooky buns, a few creepy martinis for the adults, load up on candy for treaters, and then we all head out and trick or treat en masse. Usually in the great British weather — rain. After a few hours of freezing our behinds off, we head home — the kids on a sugar high — and we pull out a movie to watch…
My own favorite, will always be the Disney classic The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Have a look at the list below and let me know what yours is?
And mwwhhh ha ha ha ha ha ha ha Happy Halloween!
