Doesn't get much spookier than this!

6 Of the Best Family Friendly Halloween Movies
Hocus Pocus

With Halloween upon us, and the weird adrenaline high we all know and love, from being scared, I've decided to compile a list of the six best non- pants wetting movies!

I will go to my grave (get it, GRAVE?? HALLOWEEN? HAH!) defending the below six as the "Best Halloween Movies of All Time"

Hocus Pocus, 1993

Does this one even need defending? It's the best classic.

The Addams Family, 1991

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F28%2F636132790002712923290142390_huh.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=684&h=0e9c1507434597ef57fcb8f5882e683a360c32aedae467e6a4853adb4dbc37b3&size=980x&c=2859810284 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F28%252F636132790002712923290142390_huh.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D684%26h%3D0e9c1507434597ef57fcb8f5882e683a360c32aedae467e6a4853adb4dbc37b3%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2859810284%22%7D" expand=1]

With Morticia and Gomez's undying love, Wednesday's sass, and Uncle Fester's, well.. festering-- this movie is a cinematic masterpiece.

Ghostbusters, 1984

This is a classic simply because:

"Who ya gonna call?"


Nightmare Before Christmas, 1993

Combining the best two holidays does not get any better..

Caspar, 1995

Young love, a friendly ghost and a creepy house.. what more can you ask for?

Halloween Town, 1998

I saved the best for last... you're welcome.

1. Why is Wilson Hall so complicated to navigate? Even as a senior, I still get lost in Wilson. As a freshman, I was warned about the unnecessary complexity of the building, was laughed at by upperclassman for my confused looks on the first day of school and walked and rewalked the whole hall before finding my classroom. #annoying.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

What life would be like if the people were led by Queen B.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

Cynthia Nixon, a.k.a Miranda from Sex and the City, is running for governor of New York. I think that this would be the best decision that has been made in a while solely based off of the fact that almost no one knows New York like the cast of Sex and the City. This got me thinking about who else would be a good candidate to take over the city of dreams. Then I realized that Blair Waldorf, if she were a real person, would be my number one choice for governor. Here are five reasons why Queen B would be an excellent ruler.

America's biggest party schools

These are known for their lively party scenes

America's biggest party schools
Determining which schools are the biggest party schools is often subjective, but a some statistical factors you could use to make a judgement include (1) consumption, (2) drug usage, (3) strong greek life presence, (4) campus police records etc.

When a student at Auburn was recently asked, she explained: "These schools usually have, like, a super vibrant social scene, lots of Greek life (like my amazing sorority, duh!), and tons of exciting events happening all the time. I mean, we're talking about tailgates, themed parties, mixers with fraternities, and just, like, so much fun. But don't get me wrong, we still, like, study and go to class and all that. It's just that at a party school, the social life and having a good time are, like, major priorities for students."
