The Friday Five | Top 5 (not scary) Halloween Movies

With the weekend ahead and Halloween on Monday (insert all pumpkin and ghost emojis here, plus a few wine glasses for good measure) of course this weeks TFF has to be Halloween themed. I'm not a massive fan of a scary movie. I can watch them and I don't mind them, but blood and gore just isn't my thing. So I'm going to list my top 5 favourite movies to watch this time of year...ideally whilst burnkered down in the Adel shaped dent in the sofa under a fluffy banket with a pair of glittery cat ears perched on my head and a hot chocolate in my hand.

1. The Nightmare Before Christmas (obv)
2. Coraline 
3. The Rise of the Guardians 
4. Edward Scissor Hands
5. Hotel Transylvania 

All of them not at all scary but sort of Halloweeny(ish). I've already watched them all once, and The Rise of the Guardians numerous times. I do have two 'scary' movie that I do really love. The first one is The Others. I first saw this movie at the tender age of 14. It was the first scary movie I'd ever watched and oh my goodness that twist at the end BLEW MY DAMN MIND. Watching it back now doesn't quite have the same effect but I don't love it any less. 
The second one is Signs, and I saw this at around a similar age, maybe a tad older, and I remember just being so poo-my-pants terrified that it was real. 

So there you have it. I'd love to know what your favourite movies are to watch this time of year and if there's any you think I should be watching let me know.

If I don't chat to you before - have an amazing Halloween witches!!
