Fun Halloween movies part 1

Halloween is a fun time of year , for those young and old. You can have costume parties and take the kids trick or treating , and just have a great time over all. Personally one of the things i love to do this time of year is watch "scary" movies as well as some older favorites from my youth. So here's my List of my favorite films to watch this time of year (in no order).

 Elvira Mistress of the Dark - At first glance from the cover and poster for the movie , it appears to be a soft-core porn flick. In reality its really a great mix of cheesy horror and comedy. The plot is very basic and the acting isn't anything to brag about, but it doesn't stop the film from being entertaining. Definitely recommend for any fans of films that have a dark sense of humor.

Monster Squad - This is one of those films which could have been very, very bad.Thankfully it turned out great! I remember watching this movie when I was younger and thinking of how awesome it was. While technically this film was a flop, it is held with such high regard and people remember it very fondly. It was finally released a few years ago on dvd, and it still holds up in my opinion. Sure the music is a little dated , but its an outstanding movie to watch if you want a funny movie that blends just enough horror with the right amount of comedy.

The Leprechaun- On paper this has the potential to be a scary movie. What it ended up being is one of the funnier movies from the early 90s. This spawned a long series of movies, and practically launched a full genre of films featuring scary characters in a more humorous light. The first is still the best since it didn't try too hard like the sequels did, plus it was Jennifer Aniston's break out film....what a way to start.

Hocus Pocus- Now this might not have monsters or be scary in any sense of the word , but its a fairly entertaining film for both young and old alike. There are a ton of plot holes in the film, but despite that fact, its still a fun movie to watch during the Halloween season, and will more than likely be on television. As a side note , this is the first and only time Sarah Jessica Parker looked attractive >.>
