Once October 1st hits, I’m not the only one who launches right into Halloween mode. TV programming joins in and starts showing all their Halloween-themed episodes and shows as soon as possible, so they can get in the maximum amount of reruns before the 31st. But hey, that’s fine with me!
Here are some shows I’m looking forward to/am already enjoying this Halloween season!
The guys from Property Brothers went to two competing cities, Highwood and Keene, to participate in their local pumpkin festivals and try to break a Guinness World Record. With more than 60, 000 pumpkins that have to be carved, stacked, and lit, it’s full of jack-o’-lantern fun, and really impressive too!
Yet more Halloween competition, as this four-part series brings five teams head-to-head as they try to create the ghastliest cake and pumpkin displays. The teams are made up of professional cake decorators, pumpkin carvers, and candy makers who all combine their skills to make true masterpieces. Their work is absolutely astonishing!
Phineas and Ferb:
They haven’t all aired yet, but PnF is coming out with three new Halloween episodes this year! Druselsteinoween, Face Your Fear, and Terrifying Tri-State Trilogy of Terror are the new ones, and of course they’ll be playing reruns of the old episodes, One Good Scare Ought to Do It! and The Curse of Candace being two of my favourites. I’ve always loved a good PnF Halloween, and really love that they go to the effort of making new episodes each year.
And don’t forget the movies! I’m more into the family-type Halloween movies (horror doesn’t do much for me) and so here are a couple that I can’t wait to watch.
If Halloweentown actually exists, I want to go there. And live there. There are four movies in the series, and I have many a fond memory of watching them all. The story revolves around a fantastic world where it’s Halloween all year round. Full of ghoulish creatures, witchcraft, and a skeleton cab driver, it’s exactly what I want to watch in a Halloween movie.
This is a must-watch for me. It’s got witches, a black cat, spells and potions and ancient curses–and plenty of humour too. It’s another movie that has all my Halloween essentials rolled into one. Plus, with a couple of kids as the protagonists, it works well as a family movie.
There are a lot of great Halloween shows and movies out there, and I love how fiercely TV programming embraces the Halloween spirit–it gives me lots to watch!
What shows or movies do you watch in October?
May you find lots of inspiration and spookiness in the shows you watch this season.
