Oh, you sneaky Blogtoberfest, you almost got me, didn’t you? Clever girl. But I am not going to make the same mistake I did a few nights ago and scare myself
so much I’m sitting up and jumping and shadows. No. Today’s blog post is about the fun and/or campy Halloween movies. Unfortunately, there is an evil clown in one of them, but it’s balanced by a gangsta Woody Harrelson.
Which brings me to my first move, Zombieland. Zombies scare me but I watch ’em anyway. It’s something about the apocalyptic, nomad type existence that happens after such devastation that I enjoy. I like Zombieland because the lead guy isn’t a big ol’ tough zombie-killing hero, no sir. He’s a scared little beta dude, running for his life. “Double-Tap” indeed. A fun film to watch with excellent zombie-killing sequences that make you think “I could do that”. Let me tell you, I probably couldn’t.
Little Shop of Horrors:
Rick Moranis, the mousy florist who hits it big with a “Mean Green Mother from Outer Space”, a plant that brings him fame and fortune but demands a lot more in return. I’ve seen the 1960 version with Jack Nicholson but I do prefer the musical version with Steve Martin, Bill Murray, Jim Belushi as well as Tichina Arnold and Tisha Campbell as two of the three girl singers.
Son, be a dentist….you have a talent for causing things pain.
Three words: StayPuft Marshmallow Man. I laughed so hard when I first saw the StayPuft man walking through New York, like a sweet, but angry albino King Kong, that my stomach muscles hurt the next day. The whole movie is such fun. Annie Potts and Rick Moranis are both cute and hilarious as a quirky couple.

What are your favorite “fun” Halloween movies?

I haven’t seen Zombieland, but that line from Ghostbusters is priceless. Great post. 🙂
Ghostbusters is a classic, classic movie.
