TT #46: Halloween for the Anti-Social

28 Oct 2009
Thursday Thirteen

Halloween for the Anti-Social
or Me, the Sofa, and the Big-Screen TV

As amusing as it would be to watch people dress up as a pimp and his ho (actually did happen last year), Jon and Kate, or Balloon Boy, the Significant Other and I decided we’ll spend this Halloween stretched out on my sofa and go through my collection of Halloween-themed DVDs while munching on a variety of deep-fried goodness.

Number 1
It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

Number 2
Garfield’s Halloween Adventure

Number 3
Sleepy Hollow (really, any of Tim Burton’s movies would be suitable for Halloween)

Number 4
Beetlejuice (another Tim Burton)

Number 5
Corpse Bride (and another Tim Burton)

Number 6
The Amazing Screw-on Head (David Hyde Pierce killed me in this title)

Number 7
Hellboy (David Hyde Pierce was amazing in this one too)

Number 8
Army of Darkness (so many classic lines, so few people get them *sigh*)

Number 9
Drag Me to Hell (Sam Raimi doing what he does best: meshing horror and comedy…and not a single emo-teen superhero in sight!)

Number 10
Shaun of the Dead (Zombieland is my new favourite zombie movie, but it’s still in theatres)

Number 11
Hot Fuzz (Timothy Dalton’s in it; doesn’t that make it a horror?)

Number 12
Bram Stoker’s Dracula (probably the only title from Francis Ford Coppola I did not find overly pretentious)

Number 13
Blade (only the first one because the series went in the crapper with the two sequels)

    I’ll be at my house watching movies and I might just try some “deep fried goodness” ๐Ÿ™‚ I leave the Halloween candy until the day after when you get it for half price!!!

    Zombieland—I can’t wait for it to come out on DVD so that I can see it!
