    With my favorite holiday rapidly approaching, I have a damned good excuse to glut myself on horror movies and candy....and was wondering what are some of your favorite movies/shows to watch during the Halloween season? Here are some of mine...

    {*} Ginger Snaps
    {*} Halloween (original John Carpenter version; also Halloween III - although it's crap, it's a nostalgic one for me)
    {*} Trick or Treat (excellent Halloween-themed horror anthology from 2007)
    {*} Return of the Living Dead (cheese-tastic classic from 1985)
    {*} Something Wicked This Way Comes (the book is an essential read as well)
    {*} Hocus Pocus (would not be Halloween w/o seeing this one)
    {*} Sleepy Hollow (and Nightmare Before Christmas...or any Tim Burton)
    {*} House of 1,000 Corpses

    I will have to think more but Halloween 1, 2, and 4, I think are the best. My kids loved Hocus Pocus! Ginger Snaps sounds so familiar....

    We don't have Halloween here, not really, some do it. My kids loved it though.
    Never heard of Ginger Snaps?

    It's all about werewolves and two sisters, the first and third films are best. Nightmare before Christmas is a great family Halloween film.
