These last couple of days, to get into the festive mood, I’ve been watching my favorite halloween films non stop. Practical Magic is a film I enjoy watching every year, two sisters brought up by their aunts in a beautiful household that was anything but typical. They ate chocolate cake for breakfast and were taught practical magic. A beautiful fantasy that I wanted to step into just to feel the magic. Along with their magic powers came a curse: The men they fell in love with were doomed. The two sisters struggled to fight the curse, it’s a romantic tale, full of great feeling and soft magic.
My second favorite Halloween film is Addams Family, as a young girl I always pretended I was Wednesday. I loved how eccentric the family was and that they were oblivious to how strange they appeared to other people. I continue to watch this film and get a kick out of it still. Halloween wouldn’t be the same without my favorite movies.
What movies are you watching this halloween?
