Friday Flick – Halloween Style

Today is Halloween and we could all use a good old fashion scare during this holiday. Whether you are prepping yourself and your costume for a traditional Halloween party, staying in and giving out candy and chocolate to tons of Trick or Treaters, or deciding not to celebrate All Hallows’ Eve, this holiday only comes once a year and can be fun and freaky… even from the comforts of your own couch!

Now gather up your popcorn, candy, chocolate and pop, put on those sweats and grab that cozy blanket to put over top. Here are The Domestic Peach’s movie picks for Halloween:

FOR THE CLASSIC HALLOWEEN HORROR MOVIE…

Halloween (1978) – A typical classic for this holiday, hence the name and that the movie’s plot takes place on Halloween. After being institutionalized since childhood for the murder of his sister, Michael Myers escapes years later and stalks a bookish adolescent girl and her friends while his doctor chases him through the streets on Halloween.

FOR THE FUNKY FREAKY PEOPLE OUT THERE (OR PEOPLE WHO ENJOY MUSICALS)…

The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975) – For anyone who loves doing the Time Warp at special occasions or in the privacy of their homes, this is a great pick for you. In this dark, twisty, and musical plot, a loving couple, a few lost monsters and a sweet transvestite from transsexual Transylvania sing and dance through a campy, sloppy salute to horror movies and liberation.

FOR THE VINTAGE, BLACK AND WHITE MOVIE FANS…

Psycho (1960) – No matter how old you are, it is hard for many to not recognize that shivery soundtrack or scream from this classic Alfred Hitchcock horror movie. When a woman goes missing–last seen at the infamous Bates Motel–her sister and boyfriend visit the place only to find it run by a man whose possessed by his dead mother and dresses himself up like her, adopting her personality.

FOR THE FAMILY FRIENDLY HALLOWEEN NIGHT…

Hocus Pocus (1993) – This was a favourite of mine when I was kid, along with many of my other childhood friends. After three centuries, three witch sisters are resurrected in Salem Massachusetts on Halloween night, and it is up to two teenagers, a young girl, and an immortal cat to put an end to the witches’ reign of terror once and for all.

FOR THE LITTLE KIDDIES…

It’s A Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (1966) – A cute and short classic flick that is little kid friendly and doesn’t go for long, which is great for early bed times. In this adorable movie, The Peanuts gang celebrates Halloween while Linus waits for the Great Pumpkin.

FOR THE ROMANTIC WITH A TWIST OF DARKNESS…

Edward Scissorhands (1990) – I wouldn’t recommend this for children as the darkness of it could cause nightmares, but for teenagers and adults, this movie is romantic and tugs at the heartstrings in ways you wouldn’t expect. An uncommonly gentle young man, who happens to have scissors for hands, falls in love with a beautiful adolescent girl.
