Family Fun Horror Movies

Happy Halloween!
A few weeks ago, I was watching a really cool movie called "Something Wicked This Way Comes" based on the Ray Bradbury book by the same name.  I never read the book but a long time ago I remember seeing the movie at Block Buster and I remember the cover to it but I never rented it.  I'm not sure why.  I guess because I thought it was a movie for kids.  Well, I was wrong.  In a way it is a kids movie but it's also for adults as well.  I was amazed at how good the movie was.  That got me thinking of other scary movies that kids, tweens, and adults would like.  So here's a list of some that you might like.  (Note:  Some of the movies might be rated R but most are at least PG or PG-13).


1.  The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow (the cartoon) - G 
2.  Something Wicked This Way Comes - PG
3.  The Twilight Zone - PG
4.  Poltergeist - PG
5.  House - R  (this one is rated R, so it might not be for younger kids)      
6.  Tremors - PG-13
7.  Fright Night - R  (this one is rated R, so it might not be for younger kids)
8.  The Gate - PG-13
9.  The Willies - PG-13
10.  The Lost Boys- R  (this one is rated R, so it might not be for younger kids)
11.  Ghostbusters - PG
12.  The Frighteners - R  (this one is rated R, so it might not be for younger kids)    


I'm sure there are a lot of other movies that I've forgot to mention but this is a good starting place.

Waiting For Halloween (New Poem) 10/9/11

Cool, crisp, and slightly chilly nights.
Watching classic horror movies from every decade.
Round orange pumpkins on the front porch.
Scary, spooky, and sinister looking decorations 
are placed in just the right spot.
On every street corner in the big cities and in 
small towns there is the telling of creepy ghost 
stories and familiar urban legends.
Costumes and trick or treat candy are stocked 
on the shelves of grocery stores.
Dreams are turned into uneasy nightmares.
As we wait and wait for that one special night on October 31st.
