My Top 10 Halloween Movies

I know, with all the TV I watch, how do I have time for movies?

I don’t. But I’ll make time (among all the Halloween episodes) for some of my favorite Halloween & scary flicks.

10. The Sixth Sense


I remember seeing this movie shortly after it came out and being like WHAAAAAT. Yeah. Classic M. Night Shyamalan twist. Also, that kid was creepy back then. Have you seen what he looks like now?

9. Saw


I’ve seen all the Saw movies, but as with most series, nothing tops the original.

8. Halloweentown


Oh, it’s time to lighten things up. If you manage to catch these movies on Disney Channel on a night at home, you’re lucky. Maybe I can TiVo it?

7. Signs


This movie is silly in all the best ways, but it still gives me some goosebumps.

6. The Ring


I saw this movie in theaters during high school, and my friend kept grabbing my arm at all the scariest moments. It was the first scary movie to make me want to throw all technology out the window. If you didn’t think this movie was creepy, you’re wrong.

5. It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown


After watching The Ring, I need a feel-good movie. You can’t go a Halloween without watching this classic, can you?

4. Paranormal Activity


I made the big mistake of watching this movie alone in my dark living room once. I’ll never make that mistake again, y’all.

3. Dawn of the Dead (2004)


I’ve seen all the movies in this series, as well, but this one was the best. I like zombie movies a lot.

2. 28 Days Later


Again, I like zombie movies.

1. Hocus Pocus




My Favorite Halloween TV Episodes

It seems like TV shows will often skip Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Valentine’s, but they always show up for Halloween. Each season, these are by far some of the best (sometimes silliest) episodes of TV to watch!

The Simpsons – Treehouse of Horror V

Obviously, every year this is an anticipated episode by long-time fans (yes, I have seen every single episode), but this episode is probably my favorite of all of them. In general, I appreciate older Simpsons episodes more than the newer ones.

The Office – Halloween

I miss The Office. Don’t you? Especially Jim & Pam. *sigh* Anyway, check out the video and see how Pam lovingly looks at Jim while dressed as a kitty cat.

How I Met Your Mother – The Slutty Pumpkin Returns

It was super exciting to see Ted finally reunite with The Slutty Pumpkin after all those years… Even though things didn’t quite go as he’d hoped.

Modern Family – Halloween


Since Phil & Claire are obsessed with Halloween, they go all out. ALL OUT.

Beverly Hills, 90210 – Halloween

The debate about how much skin a girl should be showing on Halloween was relevant even in 1991. I was 4 years old that Halloween, so it didn’t matter much to me. Donna couldn’t walk (or use the restroom) in her mermaid costume, Brenda and Dylan look awesome in their Bonnie & Clyde costumes, and Kelly’s costume (or really, just Kelly) gets her into a little bit of trouble.

Saved by the Bell – Mystery Weekend

This episode sticks out at me. It’s like Clue, but it’s happening to Zack Morris!

Boy Meets World – And then there was Shawn

I remember when this episode aired – Jennifer Love Hewitt guest starred! Also, VIRGINS NEVER DIE.

I could probably go on forever, but those are some that I remember best. What are some of your favorite Halloween episodes?

If we’re at happy hour, what’s your drink of choice?
If we are at Happy Hour my drink of choice would be a strawberry daiquiri.  If they can’t make that I’ll fall back on a Cosmo.  Always good to have a backup plan right?

How long have you & your husband been married? How did you meet?
My husband and I have been together since we were 16.  We actually met in Junior High.  We got engaged our freshman year of college and got married in July after we graduated from college.  We have been married for 18 1/2 years.  I have spent more than half of my life with him by my side and I look forward to many more years together!

Are you an iPhone or an Android lover?
Pure iPhone and have been since they first debuted.  In fact, I have my fingers crossed that I will be getting the iPhone 6 for my birthday at the end of the month!

Describe your blog in one sentence:
Love the Here and Now is a lifestyle blog full of the things that I am currently doing/loving/making/learning/experiencing; it’s the place I go to share my story and connect with others.
