Here it is y’all! The last week of Halloween. It went by so fast this year. If I wasn’t so excited about my birthday month just around the corner I would be sadder about October ending. I have a lot of food themed ideas for next month so get ready! For now let’s discuss our final horror films for the month.
I saw it, y’all. It was just as you would expect. Michael is out and he’s going home to Haddonfield to get Laurie Strode once again. Anyone who gets in his way is done for. It felt a little rushed, I felt like the beginning was a little cheesy but over all I think it did the series justice. The most memorable character: Julian, the kid being babysat. There were a lot of jump scares and Jamie Lee Curtis was awesome, I love her. I’d give it 4/5 for the jump scares.
Another classic. If you haven’t seen this one I highly recommend that you do. It is my oldest son’s absolute favorite. He sings the songs and quotes it constantly. It’s about a skeleton named Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King of Halloween Town, who is feeling uninspired by the same old thing every year. One day he stumbles upon Christmas Town and his heart is filled with joy and wonder, he wants to bring the same feeling to his friends in Halloween Town. Jack soon learns that even with the best intentions things can go wrong but he makes it right in the end. We watch this one every year.
This was a goooooooood one. I freaking loved it! It’s about a woman who is trying to deal with the death of her mother while experiencing weird and disturbing occurrences. I don’t want to give anything away, but I have so much to say! I feel so bad for Peter, he gets the worst of it throughout the whole movie. I just wanted to cry for him. The actress Toni Collette was AMAZING. Her acting was phenomenal, she was creepy as hell. The ending isn’t what you expect it to be. There were so many scenes that just give you the heebie jeebies. They did a really good job with this one. 5/5 for me. A true horror film.
So this is one of my favorite books of all time. The movie stayed pretty close to the book but in my opinion wasn’t as creepy as the book. It’s about a young girl who gets possessed but is believed to be just going through a psychotic episode, even the priests believe this. Her mother, Chris is not going to give up on her. She’s willing to try anything to save her little girl. I still love this movie for it’s nostalgic vibe. If you get the chance to read the book, though, I highly recommend it.
Well that’s all I was able to get to this year. There’s still a couple days left of October so I may be able to get a couple more in. I rented A Quiet Place and My Friend Dahmer so I plan to watch those this week. I hope everyone has a fun and safe Halloween. I’ll be dressing up as a scarecrow, hopefully it turns out like I have it planned in my head.
What was your favorite scary movie you watched this year? How many did you watch?
