It's another 5 Fandom Friday hosted by The Nerdy Girlie and Super Space Chick! This Friday's theme is must-see Halloween movies. I've already put together a Halloween Movie List for this year, but that one's pretty complete, so I'll bust out my top 5 for you right here!
Is there a single Halloween movie list that doesn't include Hocus Pocus? I don't know, but it seems like a crime against Halloween.
The Nightmare Before Christmas
Another Halloween MUST, from the songs to the visuals, it doesn't get any Halloweenier than this Tim Burton classic.
I might just be really lame (???) but I totally loved this movie. Maybe loved is the wrong word-- I deeply appreciated this movie. It's an indie sci-fi flick told as a documentary with "found" footage centering on space travel, time travel, cults, and parallel universes. You can find it on Netflix.
Teen witches-- but none of that cutesy, lollipop stuff. This is a pretty classic film about girls who mess around with black magic. At first it's just for kicks, but as the limits on their power fade, they become more and more psychopathic.
Silence of the Lambs
I love the Hannibal Lecter character and this is the best done film about him. It's a thriller, but not a horror movie. I actually think it's pretty funny, but maybe I'm a little twisted in my sense of humor? It's a really great movie and a key figure in pop culture, so if you haven't seen it, you should!
