Halloween is my favorite holiday.   DH and I are working through our Spooktober viewing list and watching lots of movies on Shudder.  We need to get better about tracking and rating what we watch.  The new Creepshow is good so far! 

My favorite Halloween movie is Trick r Treat.  We watch it every year on Halloween Eve.   We both dress up to hand out candy (we get tons of kids in our neighborhood) so Halloween night is very busy.

My favorites are:

Ghostbusters
Ghostbusters 2
Adams Family
Adams Family Values
Any TreeHouse of Horror
Sleepy Hollow
Nightmare Before Christmas
Scream Trilogy, but not 4
Practical Magic
Witches of Eastwick
Beetlejuice
Monster Squad (old school right there)

I don't go in for gory, so I have a hard time with a lot of the horror genre. I too am a Halloween lover, we decorate and turn our front yard into a graveyard and have a fire pit and hand out gobs of candy. We also go do a bunch of the Halloween stuff, like haunted houses, Halloween Horror Nights, the Disney Trick or Treat party, pumpkin patches, Octoberfests. Yeah October is a busy month for us.

The company of Wolves.  It is a retelling of Little Red Riding Hood and it is awesome.  And Cabin in the Woods.  Totally bizarre.  You will never see another movie like it.

Dead-Alive. My fav moment is when the Catholic priest goes all kung-fu on these zombies in a cemetary & goes, "I kick *ss for The Lord!"
