Halloween is upon us! Tomorrow is the big day and I’ve saved the best recommendation for last. I watch horror movies all year long so for a movie to really resonate with me at this time of the year, it has to not only have all the components of a good horror movie, but it has to specifically be about Halloween or refer to Halloween. This one has all of that in spades. That being said, even if it weren’t a Halloween movie I would still really appreciate the style and the fun atmosphere that this horror movie brings to the table.
Last Halloween 2 Movies 1 Moment so it only makes sense that we take a look at trick-or-treating. Check it out!
Any good film that has Halloween in the story has to have a trick or treat scene and over the years, some great moments have come from this holiday tradition. From the ghost costume moments in E.T. The Extra-terrestrial (1982) and A Perfect World (1993) to the frightening scenes in To Kill a Mockingbird (1962) and the funny Hocus Pocus (1993). Here are two moments we’d like to go trick or treating with you.
Melissa’s Pick: Trick ‘r Treat (2007)
Film Summary: Trick ‘r Treat chronicles the exploits of several strangers as each celebrate in their own way on Halloween night. There is a high school principal (Dylan Baker) who has a dark secret, a sweet virgin (Anna Paquin) waiting for someone special for her first time, a couple trying to get through Halloween without annoying each other too much, a group of preteens who…

Halloween is almost upon us and for those of you out there looking for some easy DIY projects, you’ve come to the right place. If you listened to the podcast a couple days ago, I mentioned that the best way to decorate for Halloween is with pumpkins. They’re really versatile and inexpensive. I bought these pumpkins at a local grocery store for 99¢.
Earlier this week a couple of us got together and chatted about Halloween. Listen to our podcast here!
Run time 34 minutes. It’s Halloween time, so some of the TMI gang got together to have a Random Chat about the holiday, the movies it inspires, the candy we eat and lots more. Find out what movie had which person sleeping with the lights on! Learn which one of us never celebrated Halloween! Who are our favorite scary movie characters! Happy Halloween. And join us next week as we choose the Top Scariest Moments in Movies!
Halloween is a week and a day away! Yahoo! I’m pumped. I have some Halloween decor ideas going up on Monday, so stay tuned for that, and there are two more Halloween movie recommendations coming down the pipeline (including this one). I hate how quickly special occasions come and go. It seems like I’m always just in the middle of prepping and celebrating and then it’s over. Womp womp. Oh well, if there’s only a week and a day left then we’ll make it count!
A big hello to everyone out there and a very happy Back to the Future Day! “What is Back to the Future Day?”, you may ask. Well, let me tell you. Today just so happens to be the day that Doc Brown and Marty McFly travel to in the future of Back to the Future Part II. A moment like this doesn’t happen very often so I decided to put aside the scheduled Wednesday Night Kitchen Raid to commemorate this momentous occasion with quick reviews of each of the movies in the trilogy.
Another scary 2 Movies 1 Moment in preparation for Halloween. This week we look at demonic possessions. Check it out!
Mel’s Pick: The Exorcist (1973)
Film Summary: When twelve year old Regan (Linda Blair) starts behaving oddly her mother, Chris (Ellen Burstyn), is determined to find out what is causing these change in her behaviour. As Regan’s demeanour becomes more and more destructive, Chris finally decided to reach out to the church for help and enlists the aid of a young priest named Father Karras (Jason Miller). After visiting Regan and seeing her disturbing behaviour firsthand, Father Karras tells Chris that he believes that Regan has been possessed by a demon and that they’ll have to perform and exorcism to get her back.
The Moment: Chris has been trying everything she can think of to help her daughter, Regan. She is incredibly stressed and has just come home to find that Regan was left alone when her personal assistant…

Happy Monday, lovelies. Remember when I hinted that I’ve been working on an AMAZING new project? Well, it’s still not ready yet. This is not a quick or easy DIY but it’s already looking incredible. I’m so happy with the direction that it’s going and what the total cost of the project came in at. Everything about this project is wonderful.
Anyways, seeing as it isn’t done yet I don’t want to write the whole post for it because I want to have some complete before and after photos. But… I just couldn’t stop myself from giving you guys a sneak peak.
PREVIEW OF WHAT IS TO COME
I should be done by next week. Stay tuned!
How great is it that Halloween is on a Saturday this year? Pretty darn great in my opinion. I’m planning on throwing a Halloween party and dressing up as Winifred Sanderson alongside my blonde and brunette girlfriends so that we will be the Sanderson Sisters. The problem is, all the people I’ve told this to have said, “Who are the Sanderson Sisters?” Ugh. What are your thoughts? Would you get it? Either way, we’re going for it so at the very least we’ll look like well coordinated witches. Speaking of witches… Today’s recommendation was the terror of my childhood and maybe one of the reasons I love horror movies so much to this day. I watched it again last night to refresh my memory and I have to say that it’s still pretty creepy and loads of fun to watch.
As Halloween lurks around the corner, we’re looking at ghosts this week on 2 Movies 1 Moment. Check it out!
Ghosts make for some great characters in moves because they can be scary and funny, depending on the story. Think how they were used for both in Ghostbusters (1984). Filmmakers have found lots of interesting ways to represent ghosts in movies, from wholly invisible to full-on monsters. Here are ghost moments in two movies we’d like to scare up for you.
Melissa’s Pick: The Others
Film Summary: Grace (Nicole Kidman) and her two children, Anne (Alakina Mann) and Nicholas (James Bentley), are trying to get along as best they can as they wait for their husband and father to return from World War II. When their staff inexplicably disappear and three new people show up to take their place, strange things start happening in the huge Victorian mansion that they call home. Anne insists that there are Others in the house that she has been communicating with them. Although Grace dismisses…
