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.

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Honey has been a staple in my Ayurvedic skincare routine since I was a kid and my grandmother used to make me homemade paste-like face masks by mixing chickpea flour, turmeric, honey, and yogurt together.

I now use honey head to toe — on my hair to make it extra shiny, on my face for its natural smoothing and anti-bacterial properties, and the rest of my body for its extreme textural and brightening benefits. Some people even use it on their armpits for honey's lightening effect on the skin.

People Are Eating Salads For Breakfast, And It's About Time

As Americans we know we all need to eat more fruits and veggies, why not do it at breakfast?

I first started seeing a dietitian in late 2017. At the time, I was the heaviest I've ever been at about 210 lbs. At the first appointment, my dietitian asked me to record what I ate in a food diary so she could better understand my habits and give me better direction in changing my lifestyle. I did exactly that and returned a week later, diary in hand. After a cursory glance at the pages, she first remarked at how few fruits and vegetables I ate. Deep down I had already known that, but what I didn't know then was that I was far from being alone in that respect. According to a Times article, about 90 percent of Americans don't consume enough fruits and vegetables to meet current dietary guidelines. It's hardly rocket science as to why that is — many of our diets consist mainly of carbs and non-planted based protein. This isn't to say that carbs and protein are the devils; they're both parts of a balanced diet. However, vegetables and fruit are also part of a balanced diet — a part that often gets neglected. So, when I see people on Instagram eating salad for breakfast, I think to myself "It's about time!"

This coffee brand is USDA organic. Newman's Own Keurig coffee flavors are all organic. They have French Roast, Decaf, and a Special Blend. I'm in a committed relationship with the French Roast flavor. The smell alone from dispensing 1 cup of coffee sets a whole cafe jazz vibe.

I'm already relaxed when I smell the coffee all ready for dressing. The way I make my coffee is simple and sweet, literally. I add a spoon of organic brown sugar and a splash of organic almond vanilla milk. This cup of coffee has changed my life forever. I have never been so productive in my life and I truly believe it's because the coffee is organic.
