Without further ado, the list!:
5). The Rocky Horror Picture Show
4). It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown
3). Young Frankenstein
Do I really need to say more? Well I will! Cause growing up there were a few thing we knew to be implicit, and one of those things was: "It's Good to Be The King!" and Mel Brooks is the king of HILARIOUS! In this particular Brooks' film, we see the grandson of Mary Shelley's Doctor Frankenstein played by Wilder...who calls himself: Dr. Frankenstein...pronounced "frahnk-en-steeeen" so as to disassociate himself from his lunatic grandfather. And yet,--as all movies have taught us--he is doomed to repeat his fore-father's mistakes! Also, they made a musical of this (and of Blazing Saddles, Brooks' AMAZING western!). So, all I'm saying is, be sure to watch this. It's great any time of year! (Rated HH for: Hilarity-over-Horror with a monster and music number)!
2). Hocus Pocus
|via (seriously, check this out...it's awesome!)|
When I think of Halloween, I think of Sarah Jessica, Kathy, and of course, the The Divine Miss M:
BETTE MIDLER!!!! I consider this to be the quintessential Halloween Movie! Heck, there's even a black cat that talks (whose human form is on NCIS, and voice actor is the AMAZING Jason Marsdon)!! Also--on a really cool side note--Omri Katz was in a wonderfully creepy (or should I say eery?) show called Eerie, Indiana that used to play on TV, and, was like a young folks Twilight Zone/X-Files!!! (Here's an episode!)
(Rated HHDC for: Halloween Horror Disney Classic)
