It’s time for a fright!
Today is the best holiday and the second greatest day of the year behind baseball’s Opening Day. I take Halloween seriously and cannot remember a year I didn’t dress up. This year, I’m Wendy from the great cartoon Gravity Falls.
Since I’m a self-professed Halloween expert, I want to share with you which movies you should watch today, the best Halloween candy, and some of the best costumes I find on social media.
Horror is my favorite genre. It’s one that’s hard to perfect and to find originality.
Of course, today you should indulge in the Halloween franchise. Nothing tops the first one made by the great John Carpenter, but the others are not bad, except for Resurrection. Go ahead and skip that one.
Halloween III is out of place because the makers never intended to make Michael Myers stick around, but he proved too popular and they brought him back, ending the idea that the Halloween movies could be stand alones.
Other movies to watch today:
- The Conjuring and The Conjuring 2
- 30 Days of Night
- Ghost Ship
- Poltergeist 1 and 2
- Scream franchise
- The Thing
- Insidious movies (yes, all 4!)
- The Cabin in the Woods
- Trick ‘r Treat
- Fright Night
I highly recommend the Netflix movie Hush. You also cannot go wrong with the Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street franchises.
CANDY. ALL THE CANDY.
I think we can all agree that Reese’s has the best candy. HANDS DOWN. But what others do you enjoy? Here’s a list from FiveThirtyEight:

Too much chocolate! And I say that as a chocolate lover. I also enjoy the Laffy Taffy (especially strawberry!), Nerds, Blowpops, Dots.
What are some of your favorites? I noticed Krackel is missing from the list, which I consider a fantastic chocolate treat. Milk Duds are also underrated.
Who doesn’t enjoy dressing up? It’s so much fun!

Émile is a popular kid with hands-down the best costume.
A team built it to be specially-adapted for his wheelchair.
