Kicking off the first of October by watching “The Nightmare before Christmas”…

Kicking off the first of October by watching "The Nightmare before Christmas" (and Frankenweenie because it's on the same DVD.) My husband and I both love Tim Burton!

Although the list is already full (!) I'm taking additional recommendations and suggestions for other entertaining or creepy Halloweenish movies. I lean closer to "animated" and "entertaining" than "awful" and "frightening" (I've purposely avoided the Exorcist but also don't really enjoy Schulz' "Peanuts", either.)

Because some days my husband works 12 hours, I'm looking for some suggestions that are 30 minutes or less.

Asterisked ones I'm looking forward to, or don't mind the idea of watching them as much.

We'll watch at least one a day and report back what we viewed 🙂 I'll be bolding movies as I watch them:
1 Nightmare before Christmas
2 Frankenweenie (short)
3 The Last Man on Earth (Vincent Price)
4 Ghostbusters

  1. Ooh, cool – thanks Matt! That's what I'm talking about. I know it's a pretty comprehensive list, but definitely want to get things on there that I've never heard of.

    I've got Shaun of the Dead on there but not Dawn of the Dead. I'll definitely add it!

  2. Matt – I checked out the trailer for Dawn of the Dead – and it looks scary! My hubby will probably love it. I, on the other hand will probably be biting my nails off and covering my eyes. Hehe!
