If you’re planning on hosting an adult Halloween party, one of the best ways to keep the kids occupied is by showing them what some horror movies are really all about. So how do you get started? It’s really quite simple. All you have to do is turn on the television and find something that will make your guests scream or laugh, and that won’t make them think too much about what they’re watching (because you wouldn’t want them to).
Once you have a list of Halloween movie titles that you know will be easy to keep the kids entertained, it’s time to make some background noise. As the old saying goes, “There’s nothing scarier than a quiet person talking about a scary movie.” And when it comes to funny Halloween movies for kids (or adult wimps who still want to see a good Halloween movie without the scary part) there are some truly terrifying movies out there that will tickle your fancy. So before your guests show up to your Halloween party, make sure to give them a selection of favorites. Then, once they’re seated, allow each of them to choose a movie and join the rest of the crowd in watching the movie.
When the movie is over, don’t forget to reward the children with a small candy basket or a small memento of the night. It doesn’t matter what you give them, but make sure that it is either a Halloween themed item or something that will match the theme of the Halloween party. For instance, if your party is all about pumpkins, then maybe you could give your guests a pumpkin ornaments kit to place on their chairs or on their desks at home. If your theme is based around any other kind of scary decoration, then you could get your guests something to decorate their cars with, or maybe a small toy helicopter to attach to their backpack for a little airborne fun. There really is no end to the different decorations and little tokens that you can give your guests to celebrate Halloween with.
Another thing that you could do to help make the movie night more memorable is to make your own Halloween movie popcorn. You’ll need a bag of popcorn, caramel, salt and pepper, a bag of aluminum foil, and your very own hand crafted labels (if you have a crafty kid, create a design yourself). All you have to do is heat the popcorn and spread a generous layer of butter on the popcorn. Wait a few minutes, pop the container of popcorn and watch the frightening faces of your guests as they try to get a whiff of the popcorn.
The ultimate in spooky fun for Halloween is to rent a scary movie. Don’t just pick a any old horror film. Pick one that is perfect for this year’s theme. The Scary Movie franchise has been around for decades, so there are plenty of them that you can choose from. In fact, you might even get ideas for some of your own! You’ll be able to find all the movies that you like in rental shops and on DVD.
If you aren’t sure how to put together the actual movie itself, don’t worry. The entire concept is really easy. The kids will love it and so will you! A Halloween party with a scary movie is sure to be a hit, and will leave everyone with a great memory of a Halloween they will always remember.
