It's October, my friends. Do you know what that means? It's time to get caught up on the spooky film classics that have always been on your must-watch list. Round up your ghoul gang, stock up on Halloween candy, and track down these five festive flicks.

1. The Craft

Even though the Sanderson Sisters might hold the title of "Baddest Witches in Town," I think Nancy's clique in "The Craft" takes a close second. When leading lady Sarah starts at a new high school, she falls into a crowd of teenage witches and things go haywire. Pop some popcorn, bring out the Ouija Board, and summon your ladies to watch the film that defined my short-lived goth phase.

2. Ginger Snaps

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Fmedia%2F13rXnkD8KQreeY%2Fgiphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Fmedia.giphy.com&s=402&h=81bc1f2df55260362426d9439d100d8569293263c06e2b1f938e2e09787ebf63&size=980x&c=55124454 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Fmedia%252F13rXnkD8KQreeY%252Fgiphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Fmedia.giphy.com%26s%3D402%26h%3D81bc1f2df55260362426d9439d100d8569293263c06e2b1f938e2e09787ebf63%26size%3D980x%26c%3D55124454%22%7D" expand=1]

Are you tired of dudes getting all of the teenage werewolf glory? Same here. "Ginger Snaps" flips the script when sixteen-year-old Ginger gets bitten by a werewolf and starts having some serious issues. As someone who deplores the look of CGI, this movie is full of ultra-freaky practical effects that are both scary and impressive. Move over "Teen Wolf," Ginger is the raddest of them all.

3. Evil Dead

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Fmedia%2FGPIYELMiBk9AQ%2Fgiphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Fmedia.giphy.com&s=573&h=266ee0b30d33b72ebd678ae824cecfb203dfca3bb113ae93d6a5eb4d5a19f36f&size=980x&c=3359228785 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Fmedia%252FGPIYELMiBk9AQ%252Fgiphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Fmedia.giphy.com%26s%3D573%26h%3D266ee0b30d33b72ebd678ae824cecfb203dfca3bb113ae93d6a5eb4d5a19f36f%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3359228785%22%7D" expand=1]
The "Evil Dead" remake is about fighting demons both figuratively and literally. As a huge fan of the original Evil Dead franchise, there is something super exciting about watching chainsaw-wielding Mia fill Ash's shoes in the fight against darkness. Just a warning: This film is not for anyone squeamish at gore. There are plenty of cringeworthy moments that will make you glad that you're in your house/apartment/dorm room and not in an isolated cabin in the woods (no matter how cool it sounds). If you can make it to the end, I promise you and your friends will be cheering on Mia from the sidelines.

4. Scream

"Scream" is not only one of my favorite October movie picks, but it's one of the horror films that I hold dearest. I'll spare you any spoilers by not outing the best parts; however, "Scream" is a razor-sharp commentary on "scary movies" in general. If you're looking for a strong female character to get you inspired this fall, Sidney has "badass" status in my book. The Ghost Face killer never stood a chance.

5. Hocus Pocus

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Fmedia%2FkAoLWS7oRqH8A%2Fgiphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Fmedia.giphy.com&s=788&h=5164c7c3d67dc9ae0eb88dc9273a7800cdd501232fcc505630fdb7a1184420a1&size=980x&c=1669889781 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Fmedia%252FkAoLWS7oRqH8A%252Fgiphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Fmedia.giphy.com%26s%3D788%26h%3D5164c7c3d67dc9ae0eb88dc9273a7800cdd501232fcc505630fdb7a1184420a1%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1669889781%22%7D" expand=1]
To end your Halloween season, I advise inviting your entire crew over to indulge in a viewing of "Hocus Pocus." The Sanderson Sisters are the fiercest ghoul gang of them all, wreaking havoc in Salem, Mass. after being brought back on Halloween. If you've never seen "Hocus Pocus," stop reading this article now. No, really. I need you to prioritize seeing this film over anything I have to say.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
