Time again for more 5 Fandom Friday with The Nerdy Girlie and SuperSpaceChick! This week’s topic is Halloween movies you must see – which is hard because I don’t really have many! I could only think of three that I *MUST* see every year:
1. It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown! OH MY GOD, I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love this movie. As soon as it starts playing, and “Linus and Lucy” comes through the speakers, I begin to bawl. Bawl like a baby! Like Linus when Lucy carves the pumpkin! Like Snoopy when the French ballad interrupts “It’s A Long Way to Tipperary”! Like Sally when she spends all night waiting in the pumpkin patch and misses tricks or treats! I love this movie SO MUCH and I may have it committed to memory.
2. “Fear, Itself” Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Four, Episode Four – with the haunted frat house? Oh it has everything. Self-referential jokes, Anya in a bunny costume, and candy. Best Halloween episode of the whole series!!!
3. Rocky Horror Picture Show last year, at midnight, I was at The Way Station in Brooklyn (you know, the one with the TARDIS for a bathroom?) and watched RHPS at midnight, in a red velvet ball gown, while drinking a cocktail named after Rose Tyler. If that sort of thing doesn’t cement a tradition, I don’t know what does!
