Spooky Movie Monday

In honor of the spooky season, I thought I would post some of my favorite Halloween movies! I'm not huge into horror (ironic, no?), but a little mystery and spookiness never hurt me. Here are some classics:

Ahhh, Ichabod and Mr. Toad. My family has been watching this for as long as I can remember - definitely a Patch favorite! Yes, it's a cartoon, but I still look forward to watching it every year.

How I LOVE Clue! Truly one of my most favorite movies of all time. I can quote the entire film (and I have with Rhonda, Emily, Kate...) and I never get sick of it. "Flames....on the side of my face..."

Ok, new addition to this year's repertoire. No question, I LOVE THIS MOVIE. I have yet to find another soul who is as captivated by this film like my sister and myself. We just can't get enough! Mysterious, darkly romantic...dashing gents...what?

Classic! This movie is so funny, another Patch favorite - a definite must for Halloween viewing! And the fact that it's filmed in Black and White is the perfect touch.

And finally, this claymation treat. Even though it touches on the Christmas season (the song 'What's this?' is one of my favorites!), I find that it is the perfect segue into the Holidays!

I know, I know - how on Earth would you be able to fully enjoy the Halloween season without these suggestions? No need to thank me, I'm just here to help.

If you haven't seen the movie 'Lady in White' you need to. It was the all time scariest Halloween season movie when me and my friends were around 10 years old. What's more, Mona from 'Who's the Boss' is in it!

oh, and did you ever see "the peanut butter solution". so bizarre. my sister found it and we watched it about a year ago. hadn't seen it since we were itty bitty. it was like deja vu watching it again. i'm not sure if it's supposed to be creepy, but it is. and hilarious.
