Hello and happy Halloween!
Well... We still have a few weeks to go but it is officially October and no one can deny that autumn is in the air. In a recent post with some cosy autumn questions, I mentioned that I had a post with my favourite Halloween movies that disappeared so I thought I'd recreate it and add any new movies that I forgot. Oh and btw, these movies aren't scary, I hate horror movies so this is a list of great Halloween/autumn movies that I watch every year to get into the cosy spirit that is required for autumn!
The Nightmare Before Christmas
The Nightmare Before Christmas is my favourite movies, I don't know if it's the Tim Burton style, soundtrack, animation or storyline but whatever it is, it works. I've loved this film since I was a little kid and the story between Jack and Sally doesn't get old.
Hocus Pocus is a spooky drama that still manages to be funny and romantic. Being an avid Sex and the City watcher, it is so different to see Sarah Jessica Parker without the Manolo Blahniks and iconic curls. This iconic 90's film is perfect to get you into the Halloween mood!
The Addams Family
The Addams Family is a recent favourite of mine, I'm talking the 1991 movie (although the 1664 TV series is also great). The mixture of creepy, funny and ironic isn't lost on me and it even reminds me of The Nightmare Before Christmas with its comedic timing.
Corpse Bride is an oldie but a goldie. This is also a movie from my childhood (thanks to my dad's appreciation for Tim Burton) that I love and have very fond memories of. Corpse Bride is what would have happened if Shakespeare's Romeo got engaged to an undead Rosaline and Juliet was still set up with Paris.
Last but not least, we have an autumnal tv series. Gilmore Girls is about the friendship between a young mother and her daughter as they go about their lives in Stars Hollow, drinking too much coffee and being too witty for their own good. The intro is very seasonally appropriate along with the shows colour theme and cosy autumn decorations. I am currently binge watching this show again so that I'll finish it in time for Halloween!
