Question of the Week: 10/16/16

<–Question of the Week: 10/9/16          Question of the Week: 10/23/16–>

The Question of the Week is posted every Sunday and will consist of a question followed by my answer and explanation to the same.  Some questions will only require a simple answer that could potentially be followed by an explanation.  Many questions will be writer oriented, but not all.  Everyone is encouraged to answer in the comments and discussions/follow up questions are more than welcome!

What’s your favorite Halloween/Halloween type movie?

I count this as a “Halloween type” movie.  It’s got that gothic/macabre aesthetic that fits in with this time of the year.  It’s also arguably my favorite horror movie; it’s definitely my favorite horror musical.  Don’t get me wrong, I’d definitely see the musical version of Evil Dead, but I’m more of a fan of gothic horror, no hate though!

Honorable mentions so Hocus Pocus, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and The Crow.

Side note:  I’m currently munching on those mellowcreme pumpkins I was raving about a week ago.  Halloween is amazing.


What’s your favorite Halloween movie?

I look forward to your answers in the comments!

  2. I am a huge fan of Nightmare on Elm Street (anything but the second one!) As a kid I was pretty obsessed with the idea of dying in your dreams and Freddy Krueger’s character. I was that weird kid that made a Freddy head when tasked with making Halloween-themed papier mache art in grade four. My teacher was not impressed.

    I also absolutely adore the Garfield Halloween episode. I actually watch it (and the Peanuts’ Great Pumpkin episode) every year while tending to the trick-or-treaters.

    • Why wasn’t your teacher impressed?! They asked for Halloween themed and you gave them Halloween themed pfft.

      For scary Halloween type movies I do like Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer, but I suppose these could just be considered general thrillers.

      Oooh I should’ve talked about Halloween episodes, too. I love Garfield and the Peanuts is classic. I bet I could find both of them if I searched around online.

      I wish we got trick-or-treaters. We live in an apartment building now so don’t have that pleasure. When I lived in a townhouse we got some every year. I loved seeing the adorable kids in their costumes, but we typically go to a Halloween party thrown by friends.

    • I’m a fan of Rocky Horror, too! I’ve been to a few of the live shows, but that particular event is no longer really my cup of tea. I love the soundtrack and the original now cult classic. I’m curious about the one with Laverne Cox, am a little cautious in my enthusiasm, but don’t have the vehement hatred that I’ve seen other fans profess.

      Vincent Price had the best voice for horror ever. The two things I remembering “hearing” him in are Thriller where he does the voice over at the end and he’s also the Big Bad in Disney’s The Great Mouse Detective.

      I love the Final Destination movies though I haven’t seen the most recent one.

  3. Excellent movie choices for Halloween! I have yet to see The Crow but I love all the other ones you mentioned. And I second CupcakesandMachetes, Trick ‘r Treat is an AMAZING Halloween movie. It really captures the spirit of the holiday. 😀

    • I love the second Crow, City of Angels, but it’s been a long time since I’ve seen any of them. Apparently there’s a third one where the main character is female. I’ll have to look for that.

      Whoa, three people have sung the praises of Trick R Treat! Ah I checked Netflix and it’s DVD only. I”m notoriously bad at watching DVDs. I’ve had the current two in my possession for months. I’m much better when its streaming, but I will watch it eventually!

    • I have a confession…I didn’t like Scary Movie! That was a year when I was super cranky about a lot of popular movies. I think SM came out the same time as Meet the Parents and I just wasn’t fond of either of them. I can see what people like about Scary Movie, but for some reason it just didn’t click for me. I did love Cabin in the Woods though! That was kind of a more serious critique of the scary movie genre. I’m super picky when it comes to parody I suppose 🙂

      • The reason I have fond memories of it is because I had to watch it at a friend’s house. My super strict parents wouldn’t let me see it, but I enjoyed sneaking behind their backs and watching it with my best friend lol I usually enjoy a good parody, but if they are too “crude” I hate them.

        Oh I forgot how much I love the Resident Evil movies! Those probably count as Halloween-ish 🙂

        • I certainly understand that emotions and memories around a narrative drive how you feel about it. I’m of the camp that people don’t have to like the same things, but they can still be respectful. It’s when you get into the “Ew this is dumb because it’s not my thing” ugh, I’ve had “friends” like that unfortunately. I think we all have. Granted…it’s also been years since I’ve seen it, and I have this odd trait of liking things I wasn’t really interested in when I first experienced them. Hell I had zero interest in FFVII when it first came out if you can believe that. I thought it was too sci-fi :p

          I didn’t even think about the RE movies! Definitely count as Halloween-ish. Zombies and an evil corporation? They could write books on Halloween!
