Movies I Plan To Scare The Crap Out Of Myself With This Halloween
Alas, I digress.
I adore Halloween -- probably not as much as many: I don't have many decorations up and my "yard" that I now share with half an apartment building will never win an award for "spookiest yard on the block," but there's just something rad about Halloween.
This year, I've decided that it's time to do something I've never done -- something I've always wanted to do. Something that will either leave me terrified to leave my apartment, or make me glad that I'm not them:
I'm doing a Halloween movie marathon. Why? Because it's been on my don't-call-it-a-bucket-list, list for years.
Here's what I'll be watching:
The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993) - One of the works that got director Tim Burton on the map, I can never quite decide if The Nightmare Before Christmas is actually about Christmas or Halloween. Turns out? I don't care. The animation, the catchy songs (which have all been redone by everyone from Marilyn Manson to All American Rejects), and the story - it's just too awesome to do anything but watch it at least once a year.
