Watch These 5 Underrated Halloween Specials To Prepare For Spooky Season

October is only six days away, so that officially marks the beginning of spooky season! To get in the mood for all the festivities, here are five Halloween movies and episodes from TV shows to add to your watch-list that may not have crossed your mind:

1. 'Scary Godmother'

This cute little Halloween special deserves more appreciation! It used to air on Cartoon Network every year around this time, and I remember being so excited to watch it when I was a kid. It's nostalgic and family-friendly, and will most definitely bring back memories of your childhood if you have seen this before!

For those who haven't seen 'Scary Godmother,' it's basically about a little girl who goes trick-or-treating with her older cousin and his friends, who dare her to enter "The Spook House," where she meets her Scary Godmother and other monsters, vampires, and a skeleton. She learns that monsters are nothing to be scared of, because they're all really friendly and are just like everyone else. Oh, and she just casually has a Halloween party with them.

2. 'Jennifer's Body'

First of all, this movie stars Megan Fox and Amanda Seyfried, so this information alone should convince you to watch.

Long story short, Megan Fox's character gets possessed by a demon after being sacrificed to Satan by this creepy cult, so she has to eat human flesh in order to stay alive. But the gag is, she only eats boys!

3. The 'Parks and Rec' Halloween episodes

Season 2, episode 7: Greg Pikitis

Season 4, episode 5: Meet 'n' Greet

Season 5, episode 5: Halloween Surprise

Season 6, episode 6: Recall Vote

You can thank me later.

4. 'Funsize'

Giphy

Who remembers this classic with Victoria Justice? If you don't, allow me to jog your memory:

Little boy dressed as Spider-man goes missing.

Giant robotic chicken falls on top of car and humps it.

Victoria Justice runs frantically around town with a guy who is in love with her trying to find her missing brother.

That's basically all I remember about this movie, so I guess it's time I re-watch. From what I do recall, it was pretty good.

5. 'The Haunting Hour'

Yet another nostalgic childhood film starring a goth Emily Osment and Cody Linley.

I pulled this one out of the deep recesses of my mind, but now that I've rewatched the trailer, it looks TERRIBLE. I loved it as a kid, though, and it was actually pretty scary to watch as a six year old. Who doesn't love a cheesy R.L. Stine production?

BONUS: 'Hocus Pocus'

Giphy

Spooky season is not complete until you've watched 'Hocus Pocus.' No, it's not underrated, but it's definitely required and is a right of passage as a Halloween stan.

You have 36 days to watch all the spooky content you desire. Happy Halloween! (Yes, I know it's still September, and what about it?)

The Superbowl is the biggest football event of the year, and the 50-year history of the competition has seen a lot of memorable moments. The event first began in 1967, when the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game was played in Los Angeles. Since then, the NFL has grown from a small regional competition to an international phenomenon. Over the course of the last 50 years, the Superbowl has seen some amazing plays, memorable moments and incredible records. This includes Tom Brady's record of five Superbowl titles, the first time the Patriots won three consecutive championships, and the Steelers' record of six Superbowl titles. The event has also become a cultural phenomenon, with millions of people tuning in each year to watch the big game. There are now commercials, halftime shows, and other events that make the Superbowl a true American spectacle.

11 Genres Of Music That Originated From Black Culture

Numbers don't lie, up in the charts many times, black culture has defined the music industry. Music is a worldly language that can be understood by people all over the world. You bet black culture has taken over the music industry, but not from the way you may think. I'm not talking about their prominent presence in the rap game, but the origins of eleven different genres of music. Black culture is always using their heritage and ancestral knowledge to transmute the current energy to a higher frequency. Personally, I'm not surprised that many of these music genres have originated from black culture. Thankfully, I've been able to grow up in a diverse environment. I can only thrive in a diversity of friends.
