I love Halloween! I know it’s a polarizing “holiday” but I’ve always loved dressing up, going to parties, handing out candy, seeing all the adorable kids in costume, and most of all, I love watching a late night scary movies with my husband.
Dom and I used to go out for Halloween all the time, but once we grew tired of the bar scene we started doing halloween movie nights instead. Usually horror movies, but sometimes we mix in a fun halloween flick. I mean, it’s not really Halloween until you watch Hocus Pocus.
Last year, with Haunting of Hill House being out on Netflix, we watched that every night leading up to Halloween, and watched the final episode on the 31st. Unfortunately season 2 isn’t coming out until 2020, so we’re going back to the movie marathon.
This year we are going with modern day Horror. Here’s the watch list. If you’ve seen any of these I’d love to know your thoughts.
