The weekend is almost here, which means loads of super scary Halloween movies are sure to fill television screens everywhere, or so I hope as I am having a relaxing take on the holiday this year. Unlike some people I know, (and yes I am calling out my beloved Jeff who doesn't like scary movies so much) I love a good fright and I'm hoping I can talk him into viewing some of my all-time favorite thrillers this weekend.

Halloween- the original scary movie. Michael Myers, where are you?? This features scream queen Jamie Lee Curtis and has spawned more sequels than any other movie I can think of. That music still scares me to this day!

Scream-one of the best movie trilogies from renownded director Wes Craven... I can never turn this one down, especially with Drew Barrymore and Gail Weathers, the crazy news anchor

The Craft-talk about distrurbing. I was in high school when this came out and I have to admit I looked at my friends a little differently after this one...

The Silence of the Lambs: I'm obsessed with Anthony Hopkins, but you're sure to see him in a much different light once you see him in his portrayal of Hannibal Lecter=SCARY!

And just for the kids...The Addams Family- how can you not L-O-V-E this movie?? I know, it's not scary, but it's fun AND it features MC Hammer's music, too!

FYI: for those of you who felt sorry for me for not getting to dress up, no worries--we're having a big costume contest celebration/chili cookoff at my office tomorrow so I am getting to dress up afterall- pics to come!


  1. Oh good... glad you are getting to dress up! I loved scary movies when I was growing up... Silence of The Lambs is one of the most scary to me! :)

  2. Ooh...these are all great movies! I think I will for sure have to rewatch Scream this weekend! :)

  3. these are such great SCARY movies :) I'm glad you are dressing up ;)

  4. I love watching scary movies all year, especially during Halloween. You mentioned Silence of the Lambs, Scream and The Craft are some of my favorites too. Nightmare on Elm Street used to scare me to death as a kid.
