halloween flicks

Every year my bestie Leigh and I would invite people over to our place and watch scary movies. I'd make chili and sangria punch and we'd just veg and scare ourselves silly. This is the first time in 4 years that we won't be doing it.... it makes me a bit sad. We've watched everything from Haunted (horrible) to The Shinning to Vacancy to Psycho.
Anywho, here are some season flicks that I thought I'd share.....

awesome tv mini series. i loved it!

saw series. sad to admit it, but i've only seen the first. pretty good but a little to gorey for me.

a classic. i use to watch this when i was little and i'd freak. i'm getting it again this week. :)

a scary movie about.....?? i've never screamed so loud though.

an exorcism....these types freak me out the most. honestly i watched only some of the exorcism of emily rose and had nightmares for weeks. (based on a true story)

okay, my favorite movie as a kid. that i may or may not still own..... it's so silly, but so darn cute. some other kido movies i still like (yea i admit it): halloweentown and hocus pocus! :)

oh the vampire fad..... 30 days of night scared me (all 3 times i watched it). i liked true blood (only saw the first season), but i was too freaked to watch it alone. vampire diaries...haven't seen it but lots of my friends rave about it.

the zombie movies. they dont freak me out as much. i like when they move shaun of the dead, but when they run faster than i do like in Dawn of the Dead, which I just saw last week, um no thanks.

we watched this one last year. was it just me or did it have a hint of humor in it too?

the funny halloweeny movies.... again, like Shaun of the Dead. so good.

and the "crazy things have taken over the planet" movies. this one freaked me out. as if we are surprised by that...they all do.
So what are some that you recommend for a good scare???

haha! You know I cant offer up any! I hate scary movies.. but this is a really cute post and if I get in a scary movie mood then Im coming back to this! I do like Hocus Pocus and Double Double Toil and Trouble! But The Omen kinda freaks me out.

I loved the Crazies. I thought it was going to be terrible, but I ended up really enjoying it.

Glad we watched Drag me to Hell last year. You need to catch up on your Saws and see the new one that comes out on Friday!

Miss ya, Kel. Hope you guys watch something awesome this year. Have some sangria for me.

Happy Halloween!

I just watched Paranormal Activity for the first time a few nights ago. I haven't stopped thinking about it since! Thanks for sharing the Halloween goodies!

Oooooh I loved Harper's Island. But mostly because I am in love with Christopher Gorham.

I love getting into the season with scary movies too! I just saw the original movie of Quarntine called Rec (it's a Spanish movie). Really freaky!! I'm interested to see the US version now. Thanks for posting your selections :)

Awesome list! Love Zombieland.

Have you seen Paranormal Activity? Scary as all hell. Speaking of Hell, I haven't seen Drag me to Hell yet, but I may have to now. The trailers looked pretty awesome.

"The Blair Witch Project" is a must for this time of year. You'll never want to go on a hike in the woods again!

I went to school with and had a class with the girl in Drag me to hell. Yes I found parts of that movie to be comical.

Three movies that come to mind that scare me Frozen, Texas chainsaw massacre and Dawn of the dead even if it was silly.
