Spread the love

By Cara Beth Lewis

With this cool weather we are having, it is the perfect time to get cozy with your favorite fuzzy blanket, a warm-scented candle burning, a yummy snack or maybe even a bowl of soup, and a movie on the TV. Watching a movie can transport you into whatever season you desire to be in for a while.

As we are in the middle of the very first week of October – the month of candy, tricks and treats, and all-things-spooky – it is the perfect time to enjoy viewing movies that completely immerse our minds in this beautiful season that we are in. With Halloween and then Thanksgiving quickly approaching, the time to get in the spirit is now!

BladenOnline’s Top 10 Movie Recommendations for Fall:

This 30-year Halloween favorite is a story of three sister witches who come back from the dead after 300 years.

  • It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (1966)
