  |     |   Lifestyle

Halloween is just around the corner  so it's time to cozy up on the couch and watch your favorite movies of the season. Order delivery by a local food favorite, fire up your preferred streaming service and make a night of it! Here’s a few of our favorite movies sure to get you in the Halloween “Spirit”.

Old School Universal Classics
Dracula: The ancient vampire Count Dracula arrives in England and begins to prey upon the virtuous young Mina.

Frankenstein: An obsessed scientist assembles a living being from parts of exhumed corpses.

Bride of Frankenstein: Having survived the ordeal in Frankenstein, the good Dr. Frankenstein (goaded by an even madder scientist) builds his monster a mate.

Scary Stuff
Night of the Living Dead: George Romero’s masterpiece introducing a new genre that is still going strong today.  A group of people hide from bloodthirsty zombies in a farmhouse.

The Shining: A writer becomes caretaker of an isolated hotel and soon discovers the hotel’s dark secrets, transforming him into a maniac terrorizing his family.

Halloween: Halloween all but invented an entire sub-genre of slasher horror movies, those that take place on All Hallows’ Eve.  There is a bit of gore, but the suspense is what defines this John Carpenter classic.

The Haunting: A scientist doing research on the paranormal invites two women to a haunted mansion. One of the participants soon starts losing her mind. It’s an oldie, but a goodie.

The Conjuring: Paranormal investigators work to help a family terrorized by a dark presence in their farmhouse.

The Others: A woman who lives in a darkened old house with her two photosensitive children becomes convinced that her family home is haunted.

Not-So-Scary
Hocus Pocus: Three witches who are on a hunt for eternal youth on Halloween. A heroic young trick-or-treater falls into their clutches when her older brother wakes them from a deep sleep.

ParaNorman: The main character, Norman, is just your average kid who sees dead people.

The Nightmare Before Christmas: Tim Burton’s now-classic film is one of the rare movies that works well as both a Halloween and a Christmas movie.

Frankenweenie: The movie is not only a wonderful homage to the 1931 film Frankenstein, but also to B-horror movies of the 1950s.

It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown: This holiday treat from the Peanuts gang focuses on Charlie Brown’s right-hand man, Linus, as he waits for the mysterious Great Pumpkin.  A classic.

So load up your watch list and enjoy your Halloween experience this season!
