I love Halloween. When I was a kid, it was all about dressing up in costumes and going Trick-or-Treating and then afterward, pouring a large bucket of candy onto the floor with my sisters and friends to go through our spoils. We would barter and trade for the candies we wanted so that our collection of sweets would be mostly our favorites. I always loaded up on candy corns, mini Reese’s peanut butter cups, bags of Peanut M&Ms, Snickers bars, Twix, and Krackles. I was more a connoisseur of the chocolate variety than the hard candies.
Now that I’m all grown up (and it’s considered weird for a grown man to go house to house asking for candy), my new tradition is watching horror movies at home with a bowl of popcorn. Here is a list of classic horror movies that I’ve enjoyed over the years on or around Halloween.
