10 Movies To Get You In The Spooky Mood

10 Movies To Get You In The Spooky Mood

Forgotten Halloween classics to make you feel all the nostalgic memories.


With Halloween in the air, it's time to discuss some of the best movies to watch while you pretend that the leaves are falling even though it is still 80 degrees outside in southern Mississippi. I think society knew what it was doing when it started producing cheesy Halloween movies. Any millennial or generation Z kid will tell you the nostalgia they feel when they sit down and watch the classics such as "Halloween Town" or "Twitches". Here are some notable Halloween movies that are guaranteed to get you into the spooky season.

"Practical Magic"


Sandra Bullock. Nicole Kidman. Need I say more? The set design alone makes me want to go into my greenhouse while making cactus shaped pancakes.

"Rocky Horror Picture Show"


Technically, it's a Science Fiction/Double Feature cult classic, not a halloween movie. I still consider it to be in the list, primarily because it is by far one of the most confusing movie/musicals out there.

"Hocus Pocus"


Before she was Carrie, Sarah Jessica Parker was luring children as one of the three Sanderson sisters.

"Beetle Juice"... and Literally Any Movie Directed By Tim Burton

Let's be real guys, Tim Burton is just a slightly less scary version of a Steven King novel. Which brings me to my next movie.

"The Exorcist"


In the 70s, this movie scared everyone. In 2018, it's hilarious. If you want to watch a horror film but you're too scared to watch anything too deep, watch this. It's great to make fun of at any point.

"Monster House"


When this movie came out, my dad told six year old me that the house across the street that moved was the Monster House. I haven't watched this movie since. 10/10.

"Don't Look Under the Bed"

Probably one of the most under-appreciated Disney Channel Original Movies, and no wonder because the thought of the boogie man being just an angsty forgotten imaginary friend is terrifying to a kid.

"Casper Meets Wendy"

Young Hillary Duff could break both of my knees and I would say sorry.

“It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!”

Grab your sweet baboon and some pumpkin pie to watch the World War I Flying Ace battle the Red Baron

“Chilling Adventure of Sabrina”

I have been waiting for this new generation of Sabrina the Teenage Witch since I heard about it. This Netflix Original Series will make its debut on October 26. Just in time for Halloween, witches.

14 Stages Of Buying Jonas Brothers Concert Tickets As A 20-Something In 2019

"Alexa, play "Burnin' Up" by the Jonas Brothers."


In case you missed it, the Jonas Brothers are back together and, let me tell you, they're giving us some major jams. For those of us who were there when it all began back in 2007 with their first album, It's About Time, this has been one of the most important events of the year. But nothing, and I mean nothing can rival the excitement every twenty-something felt as the Jonas Brothers announced their Happiness Begins tour. I, for one, put my name in for ticket presale, have been following every single social media site related to the tour/group, and, of course, listening to the Jonas Brothers on repeat. And if you did manage to snag tickets, then you know that this is how your brain has been ever since they announced the tour.

1. Finding out that they're going on tour

2. Hopefully entering your name into the lottery to get presale tickets

3. Finding out that you actually get to buy presale tickets

4. Impatiently waiting for your presale tickets by listening to their songs on repeat

5. And remembering how obsessed you used to be (definitely still are) with them

6. Trying to coordinate the squad to go to the concert with you

7. Waiting in the Ticketmaster waiting room...

8. ...And feeling super frantic/frustrated because there are about 2000 people in line in front of you

9. Actually getting into the site to buy the tickets

10. Frantically trying to find seats you can actually pay for because, let's be real, you're twenty-something and poor

11. Managing to actually get the seats you want

12. Joyfully letting your squad know that you've done it

13. Crying a little because all of the dreams you've had since 2007 are coming true

14. Listening to every single Jonas Brothers song on repeat (again)

If you, like me, have finally fulfilled one of your dreams since childhood, then congrats, my friend! We've made it! Honestly, of all the things I've done in my adult life, this might be the one that child me is the most proud of.

20 Things Only Seattleites Will Understand

It's socially acceptable to put your gum on a wall for decoration, wear socks with Birkenstocks, and take a casual stroll in the rain.


You're probably not from the Greater Seattle Area if any of the below surprise you:

1. How to pronounce Issaquah, Puyallup, Sequim, Mukilteo, and Snohomish.

Mukilteo Lighthouse


If you're curious, it's is-uh-cwa, pew-al-up, s-kwim, muh-kill-tea-oh, and snow-hoe-mih-sh.

2. The sheer terror one inch of snow can bring to a population.


Winter is simply not our season.

3. Being from Seattle (but not really from Seattle).


Where are you from? Snohomish. Where's that? A little bit Southeast of Everett. Where? Seattle. I live in Seattle.

4. RBIS.


Redbull Italian sodas are the MOVE. So good. Not really good for you, but really yummy nonetheless. They don't really look like this picture but you get the idea.

5. Swimming is an indoor sport.



6. Air conditioning is a luxury.


I think I know approximately 5 people with AC units in their houses. It's not because it never gets hot because it does but it's hot for like 2 seconds of the year.

7. Eastern and Western Washington are different countries.

Eastern Washington Palouse


It's kind of like Narnia once you've crossed the Cascades.

8. Grey-Sloan Memorial Hospital doesn't exist.


I don't know if that's the most updated version of the hospital (no spoilers please), but regardless, Grey's Anatomy is very confused on the geography and overall layout of the city. But it's a good show, so whatever.

9. Socks & sandals.


I can't explain it, but it works... A fit for all seasons.

10. Tap water anywhere else is just not the same.


It's just... different. Not in a good way.

11. Honking is a sin.


Instead, politely smile and curse under your breath you let another terrible driver merge in front of you. Avoid the confrontation at all costs; save the horn for saying hi to those people that stand with signs on street corners.


Space Needle


Not many cities have a similar collective passion for not just one, but all, professional sports teams. Of course, the city's pride for 12s is something else.

13. If you use an umbrella, you're weak.


It's survival of the fittest out here.

14. Portland is JV Seattle.

Portland, Oregon


We were cool first.

15. The flannel lives on.


She knows what's up.

16. Dick's.


Get your head out of the gutter. It's a burger place.

17. Ferries are a common form of transportation.


Want to go see a drive in movie? Get some ice cream on Whidbey? Go to your cabin on the San Juans? Visit Sequim (ha)? Walk or drive on the ferry. Easy.

18. Lakes > beaches.


Nothing beats the mountains, wineries, boating, and cliff jumping opportunities on the lake. It's carefree, fresh water, and of course, beautiful.

19. Coffee.


Nobody really does it like we do, let's be real.

20. It doesn't actually rain thaaaaaat much.

I'm pretty sure there are a bunch of East Coast cities that get more rain than we do. It's just got that gloom that makes you feel like it might as well be raining, you know? Raise your hand if you're vitamin D deficient! Woo!
