Geeky Girl Tuesday: Geek up your Halloween

The Halloween season is officially upon us (regardless of the tempting candy isle being around for about a month).

If you're like me, trick or treating is too much work when you can stop down said isle and treat yourself whenever you want.  So instead of costume ideas or things like that, I'm going to recommend some movies to turn to when the sugar crash hits.

Ahh, the 80s.  When Tim Burton's style was still new and refreshing and Michael Keaton was still making movies.  A fun movie, with what is undoubtedly the best random musical number ever.

Whatever Happened to Baby Jane
A classic that is only fun if you can fully embrace the camp of an aging Bette Davis AND Joan Crawford.  Now that I come to think of it, a Davis & Crawford themed party would be awesome!  Prepare yourself for unabashed drama and scenery-chewing that could only be handled by these two.


Anything with Vincent Price
No really, anything with him.  He is the high grand master of Halloween in my mind.  Fun, cheap scares, and one of the best voices of any actor.

Who doesn't love Tim Burton? I ask anyone to seriously answer this question, Beetlejuice fandom aside.

I miss the old Tim Burton! Beetlejuice is a classic for sure, as is every Vincent Price movie. Great list!

Go for Edward Scissorhands - then you get Burton and Price in one shot!

Beetlejuice was Burton at his best, imho, and nearly perfect.

I'll be the one to say it. Aside from the given Burton classics, Beetlejuice, Batman, Scissorhands, and a few others, I kind of hate Tim Burton. I'm so tired of seeing the same damn movie with a slightly tweaked story, over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and get the idea.
