Halloween Party Planning: Films
Throwing a Halloween film-fest party is nothing without some classic horror films to watch in the dark with friends. Choose a variety of horror films, such as “Halloween,” “Dracula,” “Frankenstein,” “Night of the Living Dead,” “The Wolfman,” or “Scream.” More modern day movies can also be a great addition to your film-fest, including “Drag Me to Hell,” “Martyrs,” “Let the Right One In,” “28 Days Later, “The Killing Room,” and “The Haunting in Connecticut.” Let your friends vote on which they’d like to watch.
Halloween Party Planning: Food
Cover a table in the movie room with a Halloween themed tablecloth and supply plenty of tasty snacks and beverages. Finger-foods are best for film-fest parties, but this doesn’t mean that you can be creative with your snacks. Make crescent rolls or breadsticks resemble severed fingers and supply some great-tasting blood red marinara sauce. What about some creepy deviled eyeballs or cups of dirt pudding with gummy worms. There are no limits when it comes to delicious creepy foods.
Halloween Party Planning: Music
For those who want to skip the scary flicks, supply some spooky music to enjoy while eating their snacks. You may also want some music to play during the start of the party and during movie intermissions. Collections, such as Elvira, are popular among the Halloween holiday. Create a CD of your favorite Halloween tunes and allow them to play while sitting around a camp fire telling ghost stories or while toasting marshmallows or hotdogs.
Halloween Party Planning: Decorations
Don’t forget to decorate for the special event, including yourself. Although costumes are optional, they are highly encouraged. It’s also necessary to decorate the film-fest room, as well as any other party rooms. If the party is being held outdoors, hang orange lights throughout the trees and bushes, as well as ghosts and other spooky things. Line up lounge chairs and tables so that everyone has a place to relax.
Halloween is one of the most exciting holidays of the year and many like to celebrate by throwing a party. Hosting a Halloween film-fest party can be loads of fun and will have your friends wanting to return each year for your horror films, food, and music on All Hallows Eve.
