Hello (and welcome!) if you’re from the Entangled Hop and are visiting my site for the first time! I write light-hearted and sassy paranormal romances for Covet. You can find more information about Gone with the Wolf and Four Weddings and a Werewolf on the BOOKS tab above. 🙂
On to the hop!
Halloween is one of my favorite times of year. I love the chilly weather and the hint of rain. I love cuddling up with warm blankets and drinking pumpkin spice lattes while kids roam the streets in the search for the best (see: biggest) candy bars. My kids love dressing up and start picking out their costumes at the end of August, well before the costume magazines show up in my mail box.
Edited to add: I’ve had some crazy halloween costumes through the years, and after reading the first comment on this post, I realized I should’ve added a picture of at least one of them! So here’s last year’s costume:
If you check back in next week, I’ll add a picture of this year’s costume here. 🙂
While I’m a bit of a wuss when it comes to scary movies (I’ve never seen The Ring, any of the Saws, Silent HIlls or Paranormal Activities–I wouldn’t sleep for YEARS after watching them!), I do love movies about werewolves and vampires.
Without further ado, my favorite horror/halloween movies for all kinds of different reasons.
I love all of them. I remember watching Underworld in the theatre for the first time. The dark! The leather! The conflict between vampires and lycans! Selene! The elders! Oh, I could go on and on.
INTERVIEW WITH A VAMPIRE
This was probably one of the first vampire movies I watched, so it really stuck with me. Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, Kirsten Dunst playing the three vampires suffering from their inner demons. What could be better?
All I can say is, this one got me looking at drains in a whole new way. :shudder:
THE HOUSE ON HAUNTED HLL (the newer version)
This movie has probably one of the scariest scenes in it that I’ve ever seen. Anyone remember the operating table? The person being worked on in the camera viewfinder, who wasn’t really there when she put the camera down?! Oh, hell no. (This movie effected me so much that about 10 years after I saw this move, I went on the Alcatraz night tour, stepped inside a dark operating room and squealed as I ran out the door.)
I will forever know what “hobbling” is, and why I’ll never venture into the middle of nowhere to write.
There you have it–the horror movies that are either my favorite or have scarred me…I mean scared me. Okay, okay, could be all three.

Hey Kristin, you might want to fix that rafflecopter link, it appears to be broken 😦
Some of my spooky/horror.halloween thems memorbale movies were these . . .
As a kid, big fan of Disney channel or network where they had the HalloweenTown series, the only one that disappoint me was the last one because the original actress didn’t come back to reprise her role and the sassy grandma who was a major part of the whole story was absence IMO.
Twitches was also a fav, that has Tia and Tamera Mowry as the starts
Mom got a date with a vampire ( I can’t named who might have been in it)
Don’t look under the bed (boggeyman concept), Tower of Terror, Hocus Pocus(STILL MY FAVORITE) I haven’t watch Haunted Mansion (that had Eddie Murphy) in a while maybe I’ll do that soon 🙂
I will NEVER watch Saws, Chucky, Paranormal Activities . . .
I’ve see Stephen King IT movie one time and I understood why people are afraid of clowns
I probably saw some badly made and disgusting horror flims but that was not my choice, it was someone else
I’ve seen all but Underworld 4, my dad doesn’t like that I watch movies/shows like that in paranormal creatures.
I saw the Freddy Kuger new version and not impressed at ALL some say the original is better . . . DUH original are always better than remakes.
Now TV shows: I love love Paranormal Witness, Ghost hunters, Ghost Mines, A Haunting or The Haunted (new title)
Would you say I’m a wimp? Probably on certain occassion . . . I have seen the preview of The Conjuring and I was freaked by that then my dad asked if I was going to go see it I told him no I’d probably pee in my pants.
There are something where I draw the lines . . .
I’m surprise you didn’t share any memorable costume you wore either as a kid or now, well I’ll share some . . . The wicked witch from snow white, black Cat, Xena(my mom actually made the costume, but I couldn’t have the chakram or the sword. wasn’t allowed at school), Gypsy, some form of a princess from medival times, doctor in scrubs at least 4 times (I gave up dressing up). I’m not ambitious of dressing up in a costume never have, I only did it because the others were doing it.
I forgot about Hocus Pocus! That was a great one! I don’t think you’re wimpy at all, though I’ve been told I’m the same.
As far as the costumes, I plan on posting a picture of my costume this year on the blog next weekend. 🙂
I sure you know that I follow you but I figure why not put it out there . . . I follow you on Twitter, Facebook, get emails from your blog . . . Is there anything I’m missing? 🙂
I can’t, and won’t, watch any movie that’s even remotely scary. Heck, the Abominable Snowman in Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer scared me as a kid! At least, he scared me until I got old enough to think he was cute and cuddly.
I still get freaked out thinking about that evil spirit in Twin Peaks. Can’t remember the name. Bob?
I did watch Psycho as part of a college class, but it lost some of its impact from being dissected to death, so luckily it didn’t scar me. 😉
I follow you on twitter (mekyser) and I liked your facebook page. Great costumes!

Like Hocus Pocus
I liked you on FB and I tried to follow you on Twitter, but I’m having a few issues (par for the course for me). I am a wimp when it comes to scary movies, though I love Christine, Misery, Blade (all of them), and there might be others, but I can’t remember them. I do love other Halloween movies such as Hocus Pocus that I watch with my children. I love, love, love scary books though. Pile them on! I have all of Stephen King’s books, and I love Bentley Little (The Walking is great). As for great costumes, I had the most fun when I got to let my inner goddess loose. I’ve done that two years (different goddess looks) – actually three years, if you count Medusa. I wasn’t very sexy from the neck up, though with a green face and all those snakes on my head, but it sure reflected my inner turmoil at times. Thanks so much for your great giveaway. michelle_willms(at)yahoo(dot)com.
insidious was awesome I haven’t seen number 2 yet but my favorite would probably be the mad monster party, been a tradition to watch it before and after Halloween. LOVE THAT MOVIE!

My favorite scary movie is an old movie called The Changeling. It starred George C. Scott and is Super Creepy!!
Followed (@tabularasaBCKUP), liked (Sarah Miles), and for the comment –
HOCUS POCUS! It’s the one movie I have to watch on Halloween 🙂
I admit I am a wimp, I can’t even watch ads on TV for scary movies without getting nightmares. My favorite halloween movie is The Nightmare Before Christmas.
I’m following you on Twitter and I’ve liked you on Facebook. I would say the Saw movies have scarred and scared me the most because something like that could really happen. I had to stop at number III because they started making me paranoid, lol.

My favorite halloween movie is… . . . . . Halloweentown. lol. What? It’s cute.
Totally agree with the inclusion of Interview with A Vampire, one of the best vampire films out there!
There’s certainly a great deal to learn about this subject.
I love all of the points you made.
