Halloween Movies for Hallo-wimps

Guys I love Halloween. Like, LOVE it. Who can resist an occasion to wear weird costumes and eat copious amounts of sugar? Honestly one of my favorite Halloween pastimes is dressing up in my costume, pretending not to be home when the trick-or-treaters come so I can eat all the candy, and marathoning movies all night. Despite my love for the holiday, however, I’m kind of a wimp when it comes to ~scary~ Halloween movies. Sure I loved the supernatural elements of Udolpho, the darkness of Buffy, and the goofy macabre of iZombie, but when it comes to actual psycho gore I’m kind of a weenie. So, I’ve decided to compile a not-at-all-complete list of a few of my favorite wimp-approved Halloween-friendly movies for your viewing pleasure.

1. Ghostbusters

Need I really explain this one? Either the original with Bill Murray and the Gang or the recent remake with your favorite badass comediennes will do. Goofy enough to keep it from being too scary but still filled with enough of the undead to fill the holiday quota. WHO YA GONNA CALL?

2. Warm Bodies

It’s really just Romeo and Juliet with zombies (and much better than Pride and Prejudice and Zombies - don’t even get me started). Yeah people do get chased around and ripped apart by zombies, but it’s mostly an awesome rom-com with a *killer* soundtrack.

3. Pretty much anything Hitchcock

Ugh, his movies are so gorgeous. Alfred Hitchcock knew how to be creepy in a smart way without going overboard on the blood and guts. It’s hard to pick a favorite, but I love Psycho, Rear Window, Strangers on a Train, and The 39 Steps.

4. Heathers

This movie is like Tim Burton meets John Hughes and throw in some Clueless. A teenage revenge story spirals out of control in the most bizarre and unexpected of ways. At the very least, watch it for the foxy young Christian Slater and excellent blazers.

5. The Addams Family

*Snap* *Snap* Gomez and Morticia are basically #goals and Wednesday Addams is all of us when we’re hangry. The creepy, cooky, mysterious and spooky family is the perfect Halloween companion.

6. The Lost Boys

Vampires! Motorcycles! Jim Morrison! Girls named “Star”! This movie has it all. Including a very young, very blond, very mullet-y Kiefer Sutherland. I think my favorite thing about this movie is the earnest vampire hunting by Corey Feldman and Corey Haim.

7. Hocus Pocus

Don’t even act like you don’t love this movie. This is classic Disney Channel-style film-making at its best, and Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy are bewitching as the Sanderson Sisters.

8. Monster Mashes

Every. Single. Creature. Feature. They’re just too good! The Blob, The Creature From the Black Lagoon, The Invisible Man, Them!, Godzilla, and many many more. If you could’ve conceivably watched it in a drive-in in the ‘50s or ‘60s, then I think it’s a good fit.

9. Young Frankenstein

That’s Frahnk-en-steen. So many brilliant one-liners and pure Mel Brooks moments. Each comedian in it is so strong and hilarious, but my personal fave is Madeline Kahn.

Speaking of Madeline Kahn…

11. Practical Magic

Movies about witches and sisterhood really speak to me. The girl power is so strong in this movie! Also, I would not mind living in an adorable Victorian home in a coastal town using my witchy powers to make margaritas.

12. The entire Harry Potter franchise

Not something I would traditionally associate with Halloween, but the movies are filled with all manner of ghouls and witchcraft. Plus I am always down for an excuse to revisit my favorite wizards and witches.

13. And finally, anything and everything Tim Burton

The man mixes creepiness with whimsy for the perfect Halloween brew. Tim Burton is the true pumpkin king.

Valkorion and Senya, Guardian

Send me a “Guardian” and I’ll write a drabble about one character swearing to always keep the other safe 

By the time the Anointing Ceremony is over Senya’s feet are numb from the rigid position she assumes by the Throne’s right side. The recently newly appointed Knights bow one last time Lightsabers spikes clacking loud on the marble floor.

Valkorion stands at attention as he concludes the Ceremony, letting the Masters at arms calling back their troops. The Sacred Scrolls are pulled back as the Scions begin The Solemn Vow of Endless Moonlight and Senya is throw back to the time of her own ceremony so many years ago. No, she corrects herself, it was almost like yesterday, so little time has passed and yet she feels like a different woman.

She dares a look at her Immortal Emperor, she can only see his back and yet she knows the face he sports, knows it by heart for she has observed him many times, recently it feels like en entire hobby of hers. It is a bit dangerous she acknowledge to indulge in such activity outside the spectrum of her duties, something brushes against her mind and she lowers her walls to allow the intrusion, he needs not to ask for her permission, he can easily tear down every pretense of defenses and the mere fact he does not stirs warmth in her.

I remember the first time you took your oath” his voice echoes in her mind and she thanks the Old Gods her training schooled her in maintaining a perfect composure.

I remember it too Majesty” Senya pauses, mulls over her thought acutely aware he is able to decipher all, “I swore to defend my Empire, to be the Shield of my People and the watchful protector of His Grace”

The Scions are trailing on the last high notes, it will soon be over

You sound as if it changes” Valkorion seems amused more than anything else, she will have blushed if she was the type of

Not at all Majesty, if anything, I will gladly take it once more

He is silent as he ascends once more to his throne, the sign the Ceremony is done, the court claps politely at the anointed Knights and the procession walks out of the Throne room.

Soon only the Honored Guard is present and Valkorion informs them of the next Ceremony - the Scion one this time - happening on the next day. They are then dismissed, below their feet the sun is setting on the Spire. Senya hesitates a few seconds but their Emperor calls her name and she knows to stay in her place, ignoring the curious glances of her fellow Knights she waits for the room to be empty before turning toward her ruler an eyebrow raised in a mute question.

“Do not give me that stare, their opinions are unimportant”

“I’d rather not be the focus of funny tales among soldiers” Senya counters although there is no real annoyance colouring her words, she takes a few more steps until she is so close their knees touch. Ignoring the shockwaves in her body his close presence always ignites she let her lips quivers into a smirk

“If anything i’ll beat the most curious of them in duel…. again

At this he gives a chuckle

“They might not realize what is coming for them” he gives her a small smile and Senya has to remember her name for a second, half a breath later she is kneeling on the floor in front of him, head bowed down

“I have said the words once, I will said them again Majesty, as I stand in your light, I swear this oath of allegiance to you. I will serve you unconditionally and protect Zakuul and all its people. I will stand at your side for the remainder of my days. If I should fail my duties, my life is forfeit. My heart beats at your command, my breath is drawn at your pleasure. From this moment onwards, I answer only to you”

When the last word leaves her mouth she senses him standing up as seconds tick by, finally he calls her name and she once more forgets to breathe.

“Rise Senya Tirall, your words have been heard and accounted for” she obeys him and stifles a surprise gasp when he takes both of her hands in his - less for the gesture itself but more of their choice of location - “I will welcome your presence by my side until one eternity comes to pass”

“This is a rather daring promise your Grace”

he kisses her hands softly;

“I know”
