I have been a freak about halloween since I was little -- the costumes, the candy ... even the scary stories! So with Halloween being a little over a month away, I can't wait.
I grew up with a family who allowed a very imaginative mind for costumes. This is the same family who lived next door to a cemetery; the same family who did seances during sleepovers; the same family who most likely lived in a haunted house. Growing up like this, I guess it's only natural that I have a great love of this holiday.
Now that I'm an adult, I'm itching to move back to that so-called haunted house (hopefully by the end of 2020). I long for the day where I can decorate it with fog, gravestones, skeletons and ghosts. For now, though, I get my dose of the ghosts, ghouls, goblins from a well-curated movie list (like the Hallmark Channel Christmas line-up, but for Halloween).
I've curated both a scary and non-scary movie list below ...
