My top 5 movies to watch on Halloween

When it comes to Halloween everyone has a very different idea of whats a good choice of movies to marathon, I’m not going to make an article about why we tend to watch these movies during Halloween time but instead I am simply going to list my personal top 5 with the reasons why I chose them.

Enjoy

movies5. It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown

It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown is the Peanuts Halloween special, it includes all of the familiar faces from the show but the special mostly focuses on Linus, Snoopy and Charlie Brown.

Charlie Brown gets all of the bad luck as usual since he manages cut way too many eye holes in his ghost costume and when he goes trick or treating instead of receiving candy he gets given rocks.

Snoopy as usual sits on top of his dog house and pretends to be world war 1 pilot, he is eventually shot down and he has too fight his way through the war on foot, this part is very well directed but genuinely isn’t that interesting.

Finally Linus who is by far the biggest star of this episode spends his Halloween sat in a field waiting for the Great Pumpkin which is a being that seems to only exist in linus’s mind , the Great pumpkin is supposed to leave presents for all the good children in the world (seems he’s got his holidays mixed up)

The Great Pumpkin is a fantastic Halloween Special and for most people its what they remember the most about the old Peanuts cartoons.

4. A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)

I love this movie and if its not for how ridiculous and 80’s it is then Freddy Kruger definitely takes the cake, for those who don’t know the film revolves around a vengeful killer who kills teenagers in their dreams, it’s a surprisingly really fun movie for how intense and quite frightening it can get, with the film revolving around Freddy killing people in their dreams the movie can get very creative and the death scenes are gloriously gory and full of imagination.

Nightmare on elm street in a must watch for all horror and cheesy 80’s film fans.

3. Ghostbusters (1984)

This family friendly comedy follows the adventures of a group of friends who form together to create a new ghost catching emergency service they get calls from people who are having trouble with haunting’s and poltergeists, the Ghostbusters will then remove the spirit from the property for a hefty fine,  GhostBusters is absolutely hilarious thanks to it’s fantastic cast some of the more recognizable stars include Bill Murray, Sigourney Weaver and Dan Aykroyd, and lets not forget that the movie also introduced us to that fantastic theme song which is now included on almost every Halloween playlist.

Who you gonna call?

2. Fun Size (2012)

Getting a little more modern Fun Size is a surprisingly very adult Nickelodeon movie, the film follows a teenage girl who wants to go to party with her friends for Halloween but she is unfortunately left to take her baby brother trick or treating, this may seem like a fairly boring plot for a Halloween movie but I assure you it gets much better as her little brother ends up going missing and its up to his older sister to find him before their mother returns home, with some help from some unlikely friends the teenagers have to deal with gun fights, kidnapping and many other crazy occurrence’s on this one stressful Halloween night.

1.John Carpenters Halloween (1974)

This is my favorite Horror movie of all time and it is by far my favorite movie to watch on Halloween, the movie is about the escape of serial killer called Michael Myers (no it’s not the guy who voiced Shrek), Michael killed his sister and her boyfriend when he was just a child he was then incarcerated for life in a mental institution, all seemed fine until 15 years later when he escapes and starts murdering poor unsuspecting teenagers who are spending Halloween night in his home town of Haddonfield

The film stars some very famous people including Donald Pleasence and a very young Jamie Lee Curtis

Happy Halloween 2015

Don’t rot your teeth too much tomorrow and remember to make sure you always stay alert because you never know who is hiding behind those masks

The best Trick or Treat Candies

Halloween is getting more close now than that moon in Majoras Mask so I feel that now is a good time to talk about candy and don’t worry I’m not gonna tell you how bad candy is for your teeth and that you should choose an apple over caramel because I was a kid once and I am still and probably will always be a man who loves his sugar, This blog is going to be a look back at some of my favourite candies from my trick or treating past.

 Lollypops

Lollypops AKA Suckers are a great little treat because as well as being so damn tasty, they also come in a variety of flavours and you can suck them at your heart’s desire, don’t bite them though because if you haven’t got strong teeth you may end up like this .

Caramels

ImageAs a kid every time my mum said go and pick a chocolate bar from the shop I would immediately scout the shelves looking for something with caramel inside, caramels are better than ordinary chocolate because when you bite ordinary chocolate that’s all you get just a lump of chocolate but when you break through the chocolate seal of a caramel you get to taste the golden river of goodness that’s inside and that’s why I loved caramels as a kid and why you will want them in your trick or treat basket.

Fun sized Candies

Popping Candy

It isn’t the taste of popping candy which makes it so awesome it’s the sound you hear when it is slowly dissolving on your tongue, it sort of sounds like you brain is slowing dissolving and each brain cell is individually popping one by one “wait that’s not fun that’s disgusting”. Popping candy can come in a variety of flavours but the most common flavour is cola.

Jelly sweets

 ImageWhether it’s Gummy Bears, Jelly Snakes, Fried Eggs, Lips and Teeth, Fruit pastilles or those bugs with the gooey stuff inside we all have a favourite Jelly sweet. Jelly sweets are amazing because there is a different variety in so many ways there is a variety in flavour most jelly sweets come in a mix of flavours, and there is also a huge range of different kinds of jelly sweets some are covered in sugar, some are filled with a tasty gooey liquid, some have this soft white thing on the bottom and some are just jelly sweets. Jelly sweets are my favourite non chocolate sweet and they kick ass.

The entire above are my favourite treats form my trick or treating past, really any candy is a nice treat but some are just nicer than others. One candy you don’t want in your trick or treat baskets is liquorice because that stuffs nasty it has a really horrible taste like your taking some vile medicine your doctors prescribed to you I guess it could be worse you could be as unlucky as Charlie Brown and get nothing but a rock.

Happy Halloween for tomorrow and I hope you all have good day and I hope your receive the candy you wish for.
