What are the best Holiday traditions? Going to the Fair, opening presents on Christmas morning, staying up till Midnight on New Years Eve, these are all holiday traditions that I am familiar with. My favorite holiday is not an officially recognized holiday by most accounts, but to me it is just as important. That is of course the day that ends October, Halloween. Sure it is not a legal holiday but it is a day of tradition.
Well I am too old to trick or treat, at least until I get some kids of my own. But My favorite tradition is watching scary movies. Who doesn’t like having a good scare on Halloween night? So keeping the tradition alive I am putting together a list of Halloween themed movies I am planning on watching this Thursday. There is a Halloween party at the college I am also considering attending but that shouldn’t interfere with my movie day.
So here is the list of movies I am planning on watching this Halloween and would recommend to anyone who also enjoys a good scream fest.
1. Pumpkin Head 2
I watched the original recently on Netflix and discovered they also have the second one so I will be checking it out. The original Pumpkin Head was not exactly the best horror movie ever made but it was a good Halloween vibe going on. Plus Pumpkins kind of go along with the day so it’s a good one to check out.
2. House 2- Second Story
Okay to be honest House was lame, really lame, but it had a few moments and I have heard that the second one was much better. I am not really all that into ghost stories but I do like haunted houses so it’s at least somewhat interesting.
3. V/H/S & V/H/S 2
I have been wanting to watch this one for a long time and now that they have the second one up I figured this would be a good occasion.
4. Child’s Play 2, Bride of Chucky, Seed of Chucky
I wish they had all five but I will settle for a mini marathon instead. I have never seen the latter ones so I am kind of not sure what to expect. I will admit that out of the original trilogy part 2 was my favorite so it’s the one I would pick anyways.
If I have time I will also attempt squeeze in a Hellraiser and at least one of the Halloweens.
