Things To Watch This Autumn

Saturday, 14 October 2017



When it comes to films, I am a massive fan of a rom com, or a drama. Having a little cry when getting slightly, too engrossed in a soppy film is a talent of mine.. Scary/horror films aren't my thing for that very reason. I just don't enjoy them and find myself getting distracted by the tiniest of things whilst they're on. Having friends round to watch a film (or two) is always fun, and don't get me wrong, the thought of watching a scary film on a dark autumnal evening, like Halloween, sounds appealing. But, if you're like me and would rather choose a less scary option for these autumnal evenings, these are the titles I would recommend to you... 

Harry Potter
Watching Harry Potter is good at the best of times, but even better in my opinion when autumn is well and truly here. Think Prisoner of Askaban when Hermione stops time and accompanies Harry back to Hagrid's hut to save the Griffin, Buckbeak. The two hide behind massive pumpkins! Yes...  Just because this film has pumpkins in it, it's most definitely seasonally appropriate to watch in autumn...  

The Vampire Diaries 
Vampires = Halloween, right? I began watching the Vampire Diaries around Christmas time last year and managed to finish it within a couple of weeks... I LOVED it. It follows the story of two vampire brothers, Stefan and Damon (the real reason why you should watch the vampire diaries), who move to Mystic Falls. Like with any TV series, the cast become acquainted and the trouble begins. 

Hotel Transylvania
Adam Sandler films are some of my most watched ever. The humour and familiar cast that appear in each and every film, never fail to cheer me up, even if I have watched them a thousand times over. Hotel Transylvania is definitely more of a 'family favourite', which wouldn't usually be my first choice, but seeing as it's filled with vampires, monsters and ghoul's, it's perfect for Halloween! If you fancy watching a light hearted autumnal/Halloween themed film, or want an appropriate Halloween film to watch with little ones -  this one is perfect.


Stranger Things 
With the second series of Stranger Things coming out in the month of October, what better reason to binge watch the first series, no matter how many times you have already watched it! The upside down, the Demogorgon and the retro 80's theme and music make me think of all things spooky and eerie - just like Halloween.

Wallace and Gromit The Curse of the Were-Rabbit 
Another family favourite that I associate with autumn and Halloween is most definitely this one. It has be something to do with the vegetable growing competition and the were-rabbit that appears when the moon is at it's highest point in the sky. Wallace and Gromit will always be a classic, and this film is most definitely Halloween-y. 

As well as the The Simpson's Treehouse of Terror episodes, I will most definitely be watching some of these in the lead up to Halloween.

What're your favourite autumnal/Halloween films?

  10. I watched Harry Potter the other night. I still love Harry Potter and they're the only movies that I like along with the books. Usually, if I read the book I don't like the movie but with Harry Potter both are good.

    1. I have watched 2 episodes of Mindhunter and wasn’t sure what to make of it! Maybe I should stick it out as it’s only a couple of episodes long! Series of unfortunate events is such a childhood throw back for me! I used to read the books :-) hehe!

    1. I've started re-watching vampire diaries and it's so strange to pick up on things you may have missed first time round, or even as you know what happens, you see things happening between the characters a lot sooner than before! Thank-you lovely xx
