No, Mr. Myers hasn't been in that many movies.  This is all about the movies that best fit the holiday.  Now they don't have to be set on Halloween, they don't have to be horror, they just need to be movies that have that certain Halloween feel.   You know the type.  (If not, pretend you do or everybody else is going to laugh at you.)  


Just to get things started off, a personal favorite of mine...



1.  Jack-O

It's a movie with a killer pumpkinheaded man going around terrorizing people on Halloween.  It's got Linnea Quigley taking a shower and an appearance by John Carradine long after he was dead.  Despite being a mid 90s movie it feels like vintage 80s cheese.

What more could you ask for?  


1.  Jack-O
2.  Poltergeist
3.  Trick R Treat
4.  Hellhouse
5.  Jeepers Creepers
6.  Night of the Living Dead

24.  Satan's Little Helper
25.  Nightmare before Christmas
26.  Night of the Demons (1988)
27.  The Thing From Another World (1951)
28.  Dead Silence
29.  Tales From The Crypt (1972)
30.  Elvira:  Mistress of the Dark

It was a toss-up. 

I gave it to Jack-O because I knew that if I didn't mentioned Trick R Treat that somebody else would.

Honestly, 100 Halloween movies may be hard to do.  I'd be happy if we hit 31, one for every day in October.

Silverlady, this is a collaborative list, a little game we play from time to time on the boards.  Just add one movie at a time.  Wink

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
