31 Days of Halloween: Day #28, Grab Bag Binge
Welcome back to the 31 Days of Halloween in Movies.
Hello Friends it’s Saturday, what are you’re Halloweekend plans? We don’t have that much going on by way of things, but so far it’s been a great couple of weeks, where I hit the Garden Center’s Halloween pumpkin patch, went to our library’s Fall books sale, saw a few newer movies, tried one new Fall drink, and I plan to try out some tasty Halloween-esq treats.
There will be warm temps this weekend (perfect for indoor-outdoor fun) so if you’re planning a party or small gathering check out my freebies page for games, a Halloween scavenger hunt, and a party playlist. As for movies I’ve got you covered right here with a mixed grab bag.
Movie Quote from Scream
“No, please don’t kill me, Mr. Ghostface, I wanna be in the sequel!”

Thirty-five years after the shocking murder of three teens, the infamous “Sweet Sixteen Killer” returns on Halloween night to claim a fourth victim. Seventeen-year-old Jamie (Kiernan Shipka) ignores her overprotective mom’s (Julie Bowen) warning and comes face-to-face with the masked maniac and, on the run for her life, accidentally time travels back to 1987, the year of the original killings. Forced to navigate the unfamiliar and outrageous culture of the 1980s, Jamie teams up with her teen mom (Olivia Holt) to take down the killer once and for all, before she’s stuck in the past forever.

Grace couldn’t be happier after she marries the man of her dreams at his family’s luxurious estate. There’s just one catch — she must now hide from midnight until dawn while her new in-laws hunt her down with guns, crossbows, and other weapons.

Derek Cho is having a really bad day. After being unjustly fired from his job, he discovers that the law firm’s building is under quarantine for a mysterious and dangerous virus. Chaos erupts throughout the office as the victims of the disease begin acting out their wildest impulses. Joining forces with a former client who has a grudge of her own, Derek savagely fights tooth and nail to get to the executives on the top floor and settle the score once and for all.
The Horror/Comedy genre is what it is. Funny, with downright perfect comedic timing, a bit ironic, usually violent, and really epic kills. I’ve seen all the movies in this trio (just recently seeing Totally Killer) and I love each and every one of them. I swear it wasn’t purposeful that Samara Weaving is in the last two, and if I’d chosen The Babysitter to add to this it would have been all three. It just so happened that these movies are funny enough to make the cut. Yes, there are dozens of Horror-Comedy movies that I could have picked but these were at the tippy top of the list.
With all that said …Happy Viewing – If you dare!
