Halloween Movies to Get You Feeling ~Eerie~

1. Hocus Pocus

Need we say more? This movie is iconic in it's clever one liners, but isn't super scary (which means you'll be able to sleep after you watch it). We hear that there's a full moon on October 31st this year… all we need is for a virgin to light the candle to bring back the Sanderson Sisters. After all, it's all just a bunch of hocus-pocus!

2. Us

I watched this movie for a class last year and I was terrified. FULL DISCLAIMER: I am incapable of handling scary movies. Meaning: I watched a horror movie my senior year of high school, and I'm pretty sure that I was so freaked, I didn't go near a horror movie until "Us"- four years later. Regardless, it has a lot of interesting theories behind it, so if you're interested in some backstory, Jordan Peele himself has a lot to say in an interview with NPR here.

3. The Nightmare Before Christmas

I watched this movie for the first time recently, and I missed out on a lot. I finally understand why it is such a classic. Apparently, everyone had a thing for Jack Skeleton way back when? To each their own. But regardless, "This is Halloween" was totally played at every Halloween party from middle school, ever. My sincere apologies if it's stuck in your head now!

4. Scream

What's your favorite scary movie? Kidding. This movie is a known classic, and just by looking at the above photo, I have distinct memories of my cousin dressing in this mask for Halloween. Produced in 1996, this one is absolutely a must-see if you're looking for some cheesy jump scares. Just don't forget the rules of surviving a horror movie: don't say you'll be right back.

5. A Quiet Place

This one had my heart stopping at the most bizarre moments. These are the sort of movies that keep you half scared, half on the edge of your seat waiting to see what happens next. Plus, seeing Emily Blunt and John Krasinski together is pure magic. Krasinski is hardly the childish Jim that we see in "The Office".

6. Hotel Transylvania

I love Disney. So much so that of course I had to throw in this cute movie, even if it isn't so much Halloween-themed. What happens when a human stumbles upon the hotel which Dracula has built for monsters who need to hide? Chaos.

7. It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

I grew up watching all of the Charlie Brown movies: A Charlie Brown Christmas, A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, and of course, It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. Scary? Not even a little. Adorable, endearing and perfect for a cold night with mulled cider? Absolutely.

Enjoy binge-watching!

I love listening to Christmas music just as much as the next person, but when I turn on my local holiday radio station each year, it just feels repetitive. No hate to musicians like Burl Ives or Nat King Cole, but Christmas music needs an update. Personally, I'm tired of the same "Let It Snow" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas". So plug in your Christmas tree, make some hot cocoa, and listen to these amazing (and updated) holiday songs.

10 Christmas Songs For Your Festive Playlist

I have no shame in starting to feel festive super early.


All of these songs are definitely popular. However, I have the strong opinion that having the songs on your Christmas playlist be popular is extremely important. Having everyone sing to the songs is most of the fun; it adds to the festivity of whatever you're doing.

Personally, I love to bake cookies and hum along as I cannot sing and no one should ever hear me. Whatever you do for the holidays, enjoy your festive time and the season!

5 Movies And TV Shows That Got Mental Illness Right​

There is a very fine line between representation for mentally ill people and demonizing them for the sake of entertainment. Hollywood has a tendency to sensationalize mental illness, but these shows and movies got it right.


At the risk of being dismissive of all the progress we've made, mental health representation is still seriously lacking. Many shows fall into the traps of making their mentally ill character violent, making professional help seem useless, or making characters who don't reflect the reality for people living with mental illness.
