31 Days of Halloween

31 Days of Halloween — Day 31, Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween!

It’s the most wonderful night of the whole year and also the last night of our annual Halloween series. Spending the last month with you all trading scary stories and book recommendations and costume suggestions has been terribly fun. I’m already looking forward to next year.

At this point, you probably already know what your plans are for this evening. Maybe you’re hosting trick or treaters or getting tanked or playing a rousing round of Bloody Mary. But if your plans aren’t set or, if you’re in my part of the world, where a cyclone is threatening to derail your adult dress up fun times, here are some final suggestions for some good movies to curl up on the couch with.

All selections are available on either Amazon Prime, Hulu, or Netflix.

The Addams Family, Addams Family Values

If you’re not interested in gore, or you have younger viewers with you, no one has ever gone wrong with the two Addams Family movies. They are practically perfect in every way.

Are You Afraid of the Dark?

Feeling nostalgic? All ten seasons of the Nickelodeon anthology series are available for streaming on Amazon. Great for binge watching with the kids!

The Craft


The Crow

Again, a no brainer. Relive your leather clad club going days in the comfort of your own living room.

Killer Legends

The documentary team behind the fantastic Cropsey takes another look at the stories behind urban legends in this new and well-reviewed movie. Director Joshua Zeman explores The Candyman, The Babysitter and the Man Upstairs, The Hookman, and The Killer Clown. Remember, the call is always coming from inside the house.

Plan 9 from Outer Space

If you like your scares a little less scary and a little more ridiculous, and seeing Bela Lugosi trade on his iconic Dracula role to get a little spending cash won’t make you unbearably sad, Ed Wood’s the “worst movie ever made” might be your speed.

Zoltan – Hound of Dracula

Remember back when we were talking about terrible Dracula movies, and I mentioned that there was a movie made about a canine descendent of Dracula? Of course you do. You can watch it in all its miserable, terrible glory on Amazon.
