As I sit here enjoying my Halloween Edition Oreos (even though, they don’t taste like the normal ones, I had to buy them because of the orange cream) while watching Full House on Hulu, I start to make my annual list of shows and movies to watch for the Halloween season. I remember back in the day (when I had cable) ABC Family would put on movies leading up to Hallowen and I LOVED IT! Now that I’m older and we’ve taken away cable from our budget, I create my own 31 days of Halloween.
The first year I attempted to make my own list, I used Google. While that is a great way to get easy answers, I grew bored with the Halloween movie choices. I sure do love to watch the movie Halloween or Silence with the Lambs, but every single year? No thank you. I am the type of person who needs to switch it up, because I can’t stand watching the same movie more than once.
Every year, I’ve decided to bring back an older scary movie that used to terrify me. This year, I chose to scatter the Scream series into my Halloween line up. Last year, I watched all the Halloween movies, and I learned that some of the sequels just weren’t that great. We shall see what the Scream movies bring!
Below, you can see that I mapped out the 31 days with a TV show or movie. I try to go from older shows to the most recent season. As a tradition, I watch Hocus Pocus every Halloween night while I’m handing out candy to trick or treaters, so that will always be on the 31st. That is, until Lucas begins to join the big kids and we go out to collect candy as well! As a Mom of a toddler, we shall see if I can watch all these shows while I’m cleaning something around the house. I chose to watch movies on the weekends and 20 minute TV shows on the weekdays, because I don’t know if I will have the energy to watch a movie on a weekday after a long day. #themomlifeisreal
