A Spooktacular Halloween Tradition

One of my favourite times of the year. The house gets decorated like a graveyard, I get to scare people, then give them candy, and my kids get to go out trick or treating. So much damn fun!

I am thankful graveyard

Each year, our family watches a lot of movies around this time. The kids watch the animated or family friendly ones, while Wendy and I watch the thriller/suspense/horror flicks.

Here is what we watched over the past few days…

spooktacular hotel transylvania

Hotel Transylvania

This is such a cute movie.

In order to protect his daughter, Dracula builds a high-end resort for monsters, away from the human world. He goes beast mode when a boy discovers the hotel and falls for his teenage daughter.

Lots of fun times in this flick, and with a star-studded cast of voices, Hotel Transylvania is a must see. My kids have already watched this movie more times than I care to admit.

spooktacular monsters vs aliens

Monsters vs. Aliens

My girls have seen this one a few times as well.

On her wedding day, a woman is struck by a meteorite, and transforms into a huge monster. She gets taken in by the U.S. Government, and put on a special team of monsters with one goal: defeat an alien mastermind trying to take over the world.

Some great animation in Monsters vs. Aliens – and some really funny lines.

spooktacular lake placid

Lake Placid

This movie has it’s moments of being tremendously funny, and pretty damn scary.

When a man is eaten alive by an unknown creature, a paleontologist is flown in to investigate with the local game warden. With help form the local police, and a helicopter flying philanthropist, they find a big-ass croc living in the calm waters of Black Lake.

Betty White is priceless in this movie. She drops a couple lines that will make you spit out anything you are drinking… so be forewarned.

Oliver Platt and Brendan Gleeson are fantastic as well. Their back and firth throughout the movie is tense, but highly comical.

Also makes you not want to go swimming in Maine.
