My 30 Halloween pick salute

I have decided to do a quicker and more condensed version of my Halloween picks.

21. House – 1986 / House 2 : The second Story – 1987

This is a fun bunch of movies but the second one is much less serious and more humorous than the first.

22. The Watcher in the Woods – 1980

This is a family friendly ghost themed perfect companion for something wicked this way comes.

23. Glee: "The Rocky Horror Glee Show" - 2010

This is a fun Halloween themed special. Given it's not exactly Halloween, but I am sure it was released around October time with that intent, which was October 26th. This is more sexual themed but then again, so was the original movie.

24. Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein – 1948

A family friendly comedy starring Universal's Original movie monsters, why not?

25. The Blob – 1988

While the original blob could be watched with the kids, the remake goes a little bit darker. If I remember right it acts like acid, devouring the body. You don't want that kind of blob on your clothes!

26. Fright Night – 1985/ Fright Night 2 - 1988

This is a very classic 80's vampire movie. But it is before CGI Special effects when movie studio's had to be creative and use makeup over computers. The effect was terrifying and nightmare fuel. The first is more a journey of getting one vampire neighbor while the second is getting a sensual female vampire.

27. The Lost Boys – 1987

This is going onto yet another classic 1980's vampire movie. One which I am sure most of have heard of. But if you have not seen it, it is worth a visit and if you have, it could be worth a revisit. Basically one where California beach combers are vampires. This has funny moments but it is probably not for the kiddies.

28. Monster House – 2006

This is clearly a kids movie but it has charm and wit. This clearly was not cgi's best moment but it clearly has a place on this list. Mainly because it is a haunted house that has a soul. It also has some fun voice actors attached to it too. My favorite quote which was probably mentioned in the trailer.

"Jenny : There!

[waves flashlight at chandelier]

Jenny : Well, if those are the teeth, and that's the tongue, then that must be the uvula!

Chowder : Oh, so it's a *girl* house...

Jenny : [looks at him] *What?*"

29. Lady In white – 1988

The ghost effects are great in this movie. and the story has a lot of heart and it is compelling to watch. But I'm quite sure if its a kids movie. Given it's simply about murder, but having a kid come close to being murdered and watching one, while done shadows, being murdered. I think it is one where during certain one or two scenes you might have to shield the eyes.

30. Tales from the Darkside, the episode, Halloween Candy- 1985

This last one is pretty similar to the trick or treat one. You have a Halloween scrooge that is visited by a monster and is given his just desserts. A pretty fun and creepy episode done by a professional horror makeup artist.

    Wow! Got me all nostalgic and teary-eyed.

    I remember House. House 2 wasn't all that great. I remember going to movies on a date to see Lost Boys. And who could forget Fright Night.

    Excellent Take!!!
    Is this still revelant?

    • Thanks for the mho 😊 Jj
      I booked booked this and came back

      I gotta thank you he saw the long life mystery for me
      I use to wonder if reoccurring memory I had was of a nightmare something scary I lived or of a movie. You solved this for me. I can now relax. It was a memory yes but from the movie Lady in white.
      It was the picture you posted of the girl in red dancing that triggered my memory and I couldn't believe what I was seeing! So I watched the trailer and looked into the movie! MYSTERY SOLVED!

      My mother never paid much mind to what I watched. I must have been a babe to kindergartner.
      Thank goodness I can scratch that off To no worries at all!
      ITS JUST A MOVIE 😊
      THANK YOU THANK THANK YOU!

      It was the picture you posted of the girl in red dancing that triggered the memories. I couldn't believe what I was seeing! There it was an image that taunted me. Something I did not know if was a fantasy or real.
      So I watched the trailer and looked into the movie! MYSTERY SOLVED!

      Makes sense now see. My mother never paid much mind to what I watched. I must have been between the ages of a babe to a kindergartner.
      Anyhow
      Thank goodness I can scratch that off as no big deal and nothin' To worry about at all!

  • I'm pretty sure I've only watched three of these lost boys, tales of darkside actually brought the boxset last year been good so far and Adams family, most things I watch are just horror rather than Halloween although did watch all of the freddy cruger series and they were pretty good
    • Jjpayne

      My slasher films list there with a link, creepshow, fright night, the blob, snatchers, and 50 movies you're never seen, are all good scary options. I think creepshow 2 might be on prime video too... And the 50 movies list is on YouTube, I've posted that video on the My take for it.

      But the series of tales from the dark side! That is something! You can Halloween with just a bunch of episodes of that for sure. But let me at least get you the 50 movies you might have fun with that

      Cool thanks not sure when I'll have the time to watch it but will do
