Countdown To Halloween 2015: Velcome!

I can't believe it's almost here, Halloween 2015! I started a little early this year in September, but there's still plenty to go over! Be sure to check out The Count Down To Halloween and count along with me!

This year I would like to share with you the Allen Family Halloween Movie Night Marathon, a fun tradition that I stole from my good friend Mike.  It's simply 31 straight nights of Halloween movies. Some movies I will review and/or discuss briefly in addition to my usual posts about Halloween junk food, toys, costumes, and decorations. Some of these movies might not be considered to be Halloween worthy, and some aren't even feature length movies. I don't care, I watch them anyway. Feel free to follow along with me and watch these great films on Netflix (titles in red are available to stream on Netflix), Hulu (titles in green are available to stream on Hulu, YouTube, or rent them from your local library (If you're going to rent them from the library reserve copies now! I once tried to reserve Halloween movies in October and wasn't able to watch them until after Thanksgiving!). Here's the list:

1.       Matinee
