13 Days of Halloween: Five Fun Flicks


When people think of Halloween movies, their minds automatically go to the scary. They marathon classic horror movies with Freddy and Jason, or get their fills with creepy ghosts in the dark. However, I am a firm believer that there's another option for Halloween - the fun flick. Instead of watching some freaky horror movie in the dark, how about watching something campy in the light? Halloween isn't just about the scary, there's fun to be had as well! On one hand, this season offers us haunted houses and ghost stories, but there's also dressing up in costumes with your friends and eating obscene amounts of candy. Why not have some fun Halloween movies to go along with the festivities? So throw a party and put on one of my five favorite fun flicks (I'm really into alliteration today, apparently) in the background, or even create a drinking game to go along with them (if you are of age, that is). All that matters is that you have fun and enjoy this Halloween weekend!

1. Halloweentown - Marnie, Dylan, and Sophie Piper have their first out of many adventures! On Halloween, while Marnie is arguing with her mother Gwen, the kids' grandmother Aggie comes to visit. Aggie wants to start Marnie's witch training before her 13th birthday or Marnie will lose her powers forever. But there is another reason for Aggie's visit. Something dark & evil is growing in Halloweentown & Aggie wants help to defeat it. While Aggie & Gwen are arguing, Aggie uses magic which Marnie observes. After Aggie leaves to return to Halloweentown, Marnie, Dylan and, unknown to Marnie and Dylan, Sophie follow her onto the return bus. Soon afterwards, Gwen follows the children to Halloweentown. While there, Aggie & Gwen are attacked by the dark force in a movie theater. Marnie, Dylan & Sophie race to get the ingredients to activate Merlin's Wand to stop the evil.

2. The Rocky Horror Picture Show - A newly engaged couple have a breakdown in an isolated area and must pay a call to the bizarre residence of Dr. Frank-N-Furter.

3. Ghostbusters -  Three unemployed parapsychology professors set up shop as a unique ghost removal service.

4. Teen Wolf - A struggling high school student with problems discovers that his family has an unusual pedigree when he finds himself turning into a werewolf.

5. Teen Witch - Louise is not very popular at her high school. Then she learns that she's descended from the witches of Salem and has inherited their powers. At first she uses them to get back at the girls and teachers who teased her and to win the heart of the handsome footballer's captain. But soon she has doubts if it's right to 'cheat' her way to popularity.

So what about you guys? Do you prefer strictly scary movie marathons for this holiday, or are you going to branch out with me and have a bit of fun? Have fun this Halloween, and don't forget to check our 13 Days of Halloween tag for more posts from previous years!
