  • Set the stage for your Halloween movie night by turning off most of the lights in your living room, lighting a few candles and placing jack-o'-lanterns around for an eerie atmosphere. You can also hang paper bats or ghosts in the corners or on the ceiling for added effect.
  • Start your marathon with classics like 'Halloween', 'Friday the 13th', 'Nightmare on Elm Street', or 'The Exorcist'. If you both prefer something less scary, opt for Halloween-themed films like 'Hocus Pocus', 'Ghostbusters', or 'Beetlejuice'.
  • As you settle down to watch your chosen blockbuster, enjoy some homemade popcorn. Go the extra mile and prepare it Halloween style, such as using green food coloring or adding some caramel for 'bloody' popcorn. Complement the popcorn with some Halloween-themed drinks such as a 'Blood Orange Blackberry Rum Punch' or a 'Pumpkin Spice Latte'.

Preparation steps:

  • You will need to gather the necessary items for your hallowed evening. Start with Halloween-themed decorations like pumpkins, paper bats or ghosts, and candles to set the mood. You will also need blankets and pillows to make your movie-watching experience extra comfortable.
  • Next, choose the list of movies you'll be watching. You could pick a selection of classics, new releases, or a mix of both. It's a good idea to have enough films for around 6 to 8 hours of viewing.
  • Finally, prepare your snacks and drinks. Get the popcorn kernels, food coloring or caramel for popcorn, and ingredients for your chosen drinks. Remember to include both alcoholic and non-alcoholic options to cater to different preferences.

Some tips:

  • Try to stick to your selected movies list but be open to changes in case one of you isn't enjoying a particular film. The point of the night is to have fun, after all.
  • Make sure to take short breaks in between movies. You can use this time to talk about what you liked or didn't about each film, prepare more popcorn or drinks, or just snuggle and discuss other topics. It's not only about the movies but spending quality time together.
  • For drinks, ensure you have enough ingredients to last the whole night. It's always a good idea to have some water on hand as well, keeping you both hydrated throughout your movie marathon.
