31 Days of Halloween Movies: Halloweentown

Gore Factor: 0/10

Scare Factor: 1/10

This is the most family friendly Halloween movie I have on my list, and why not, it is Disney!  It is also one of my favorites!  I cannot go through the month of October without watching these movies, they are so amazing.  I love the second one and how they clearly had more of a budget.  haha In the first one all the creatures are clearly people will a different face, they all have human hands and bodies.  In the second one there is more magic since they actually know how to do things now, and Marnie is more useful, because lets face it. Sophie was the hero of the first one.  Freaking love Halloweentown!  Also came out with the best insult ever: Hey, you Chocolate Bar!

31 Days of Halloween Movies: The Ring

Gore Factor: 3/10

Scare Factor: 8/10

Alright who was not freaked out when they saw The Ring?  The video in that movie is so creepy, I think everyone got scared into thinking that they were going to die 7 days later.  Samara is a creepy ass villain, scary kids always are.  (By the way that is the girl who did the voice for Lilo in Lilo & Stitch!)  I like the mystery in the film and watching her figure it all out, damn it is creepy, and who did not freak when she came out of the TV?!

9PM

31 Days of Halloween Movies: Young Frankenstein

Gore Factor: 0/10

Scare Factor: 2/10

Mel Brooks at his best.  This movie has me rolling (in the hay) laughing the whole time. The wonderful subtle humor makes me so happy.  I could quote the whole thing, and very happily I might add.  Of course there is at least one moment where Gene Wilder does actually get kinda creepy, because…well that’s what he does!

31 Days of Halloween Movies: Friday the 13th

Gore Factor: 7/10

Scare Factor: 5/10

Jason Vorhees is my favorite slasher villain, even though he does not really show up until the sequel.  Slashers are just fun, watching them kill off the bad teenagers making stupid decisions like STILL GOING TO CAMP CRYSTAL LAKE!  After about two movies you would think people would avoid that place like the plaque.  The fun of these series is also watching the movie get progressively worse and more cheesy.  I especially love Jason X, the one where he goes to space…you cannot make this stuff up!

9PM

31 Days of Halloween Movies: Rocky Horror Picture Show

Gore Factor: 3/10

Scare Factor: 2/10

Rocky Horror Is the weirdest movie I may have ever seen.  It really makes you wonder what the people who made it were really thinking, because they certainly did not know about the cult classic it would become.  I love going to Rocky Horror shows because it is so much fun!!  If you have not been I recommend it.  Shadow casts, yelling at the screen, throwing toast, and going on an underwear run, it is just the best way to enjoy a bad movie!

9PM

31 Days of Halloween Movies: Dracula 2000

Gore Factor: 3/10

Scare Factor: 2/10

If you want to see an inventive and original Dracula movie…this is not really it.  This is a B movie at its best, but I freaking love it.  It is filled with obvious horror movie cliques, and really strange one-liners: "Never fuck with an antiques dealer."  The real fun in watching this movie is of course the young and sexy Gerard Butler as Dracula and a wonderful cast of great actors in a bad movie.  Gotta love it!

31 Days of Halloween Movies: Casper
Gore Factor: 0/10

Scare Factor: 2/10

I love Casper!  It is like a perfect indie film from my childhood.  It is full of great actors with a realyl fun and funny script.  It is of course a bit cheesy, it is a child’s film after all, but ahh I love watching this movie.  I always loved the story and the music is also good!  Hahah and I love the way that they aminate the ghosts, and throw in references like Ghostbusters, awesome!!!!  Scary movie?  naw…it is a Halloween film for the whole family!

31 Days of Halloween Movies: Piranha

Gore Factor: 10/10

Scare Factor: 3/10

This movie is just a total camp-fest.  It is cheesy to the core, which is why I love it.  I love watching it and realizing that they tried to make this is into a good movie.  I was a little upset when I realized that they were trying to be campy, which was made even more obvious by the sequel.  It is so ridiculous that I almost cannot handle it.  Jerry O’Connell is the biggest douche EVER and I laughed hysterically when the piranha ate his penis…that is when I knew this movie was gold.  And having Christopher Lloyd be the mad crazy scientist…perfect!  This is however one of the goriest movies that I have ever seen.  There is pretty much 30 minutes of this movie where they show the most disgusting ways that people can die: skin being pulled off of a girls head, so many bodies half eaten and falling apart, decapitation, it is nasty.

31 Days of Halloween Movies: A Nightmare on Elm Street

Gore Factor: 9/10

Scare Factor: 8/10

Nightmare on Elm Street is one of the classics.  Freddy Kreuger is such a creepy villain.  I mean someone who can invade your dreams and kill you when you are asleep!  So creepy!  I love the way that they end up defeating him by bringing him out of the dream world.  This is of course another one where the sequels start getting more and more ridiculous, with the nutso dream sequences that are gross and just weird in the end.  I think the little kids creep me out the most with their little sing-song.  And you gotta love watching young Johnny Depp get sucked into a bed that somehow spits water everywhere.

12PM

31 Days of Halloween Movies: Saw

Gore Factor: 9/10

Scare Factor: 7/10

I love the Saw franchise.  As it went on it kept getting worse and worse and more about the gore and intricate traps than the mind games.  That is why I like it in the first place: the mind games.  It is such a crazy concept that he is trying to force people into appreciating their lives.  Not to mention the end of this one especially!  I was so shocked when jigsaw got up, because they really had just made it seem like the dead body was just a part of the scenery of the room, it totally threw me and I love when a movie does that.  This movie was a bit gory, nothing compared to the other ones, but when Dr. Lawrence goes completely insane and saws his foot off, THAT bumped the gore factor up quite a bit!
