Favorite Halloween Picks of the Brackety-Ack Staff


Our Favorite Halloween Movies:

Christy Blevins: Halloween of course. Michael Myers is classic. Can’t beat John Carpenter’s 1978 film.

Emily Sorenson: It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown! It’s a childhood favorite that’s always stuck with me.

Tyler Hofmann-Reardon: A Haunted-House.

Lyndee Zeller: Halloween town. Disney channel movies are classics.

Erin Keating: It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown—it’s a classic and a really fun, not scary Halloween movie.

The Sexperts: Halloweentown. It’s a classic. Anybody that tells you that you are too old for to watch it is wrong and not your friend. You don’t need that kind of negativity in your life.

Samantha Snead: Twitches.

Gina Olson: Harry Potter…and no one can go wrong with a witch costume.
