6 Movies From Your Childhood That Made You Excited For Halloween, And Still Do

You're never too old to re-watch these classic films.

6 Movies From Your Childhood That Made You Excited For Halloween, And Still Do

As young adults, we watch more gruesome movies for Scaretober but let's take a moment to appreciate some movies we may have forgotten about. Movies from our childhood we grew out of but were always the go-to films when the fall season began.

1. Twitches

Growing up there were a handful of great DCOM's that came out but more famously their Halloween related ones. In this throwback, we watch twin sisters reunited at 21 discovering they are actually witches from an enchanted land named Coventry. While they learn more about their past and powers, they must battle an evil force of darkness that is taking over their land.

2. Halloweentown series

Marnie's adventures in becoming a better witch along with her siblings were always fresh popcorn worthy in October. Featuring a cast with the late Debbie Reynolds, this DCOM is filled with monsters and witches living peacefully in Halloweentown. We watch the kid's defeat Kalabar again and again and also follow them to high school.

3. Hocus Pocus

If Max Dennison wasn't a crush of yours growing up then you probably haven't seen this go-to Halloween classic. He, his little sister Dani, and Salem raised Allison to bring back the evil witches. With the help of Thackery Binx, they must all find a way to stop the witches from surviving past Halloween night. Watching the sisters explore the 20th century is always funny to watch.

4. Monster House

Though it may not be your first choice on Halloween night, this movie has it's moments and has stayed in our unconscious mind since it's release. A home taken over by a vengeful human that passed seems like an actual horror film. Adding that and three kids venturing in to bring peace to the neighborhood is a great storyline.

5. Scooby-Doo and the Ghoul School

Although this one is from 1988, like me I'm sure many of you have watched this beloved movie. Scooby-Doo and Shaggy teaching an all-girls school how great they all our individually was just a start to my feminist beginnings. It's funny, lighthearted and just adorable.

6. My Scary Godmother

Who can forget about Hannah Marie and her Scary Godmother? It shows us the joyful parts of Halloween that, like Hannah, most kids are scared of at first. Halloween is a festive and amazing holiday and no one quite teaches that like Scary Godmother and all her guest.

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

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!"
