Guest Post: Favorite Halloween Movies

It’s great to be back, Adrienne! I’ve got a fun list for you today. Are we ready??

You know things are going to suck when you’re the new kid. But when you’re the new kid and a vampire… well, it bites!


Unlike most kids, Scarlet Small’s problems go far beyond just trying to fit in. She would settle for a normal life, but being twelve years old for an entire century is a real pain in the neck. Plus, her appetite for security guards, house pets and bloody toms (tomato juice) is out of control. So in order to keep their vampire-secret, her parents, Mort and Drac, resort to moving for the hundredth time, despite Scarlet being dead-set against it. Things couldn’t be worse at her new school, either. Not only does she have a strange skeleton-girl as a classmate, but a smelly werewolf is intent on revealing her secret. When she meets Granny—who fills her with cookies, goodies, and treats, and seems to understand her more than anyone—she’s sure things will be different. But with a fork-stabbing incident, a cherry pie massacre, and a town full of crazy people, Scarlet’s O-positive she’ll never live to see another undead day.


Not even her Vampire Rule Book can save her from the mess she’s in. Why can’t she ever just follow the rules?

When I was a teenager, I was big into slasher films. Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the Thirteenth, Fright Night, to name a few. But I’ve tamed my viewing preferences in my adulthood. Now I’m not so much into the super gory, gross horror movies or shows (unless we’re talking The Walking Dead), which means I tend to go for movies that could appease a younger audience. Some of them are classics, others just a little creepy, some are cheeeeeesy, but every one of them are a hit in my book!
