Top Five Kids Movies to Watch on Halloween

One of my favorite things about Halloween is that it makes me feel like a kid again. There are certain movies and television specials that can take me back to a carefree time when my biggest concern in life was trying to get on air for Nickelodeon’s Nick or Treat Halloween block or catching the latest episode of Are You Afraid of the Dark?  In order to get back into that joyous childlike mindset I must watch a select few family-friendly Halloween movies. Here are my favorite Disney, Nickelodeon and ABC movies to watch on Halloween!

Real Life Halloween Horrors

With Halloween right around the corner, it’s easy to let your guard down in order to have a good time. Whether you’re going to a costume party or handing out candy to trick-or-treaters, one is never fully safe from the dangers of the world.

While horror movies like John Carpenter’s Halloween have depicted terrifying scenarios that have occurred on Halloween, one need not look further than the local news for some truly terrifying tales.

I’m giving you a look at some chilling, real-life horror stories that happened on or around Halloween. The following stories prove that the boogeyman is very real, and he comes in many forms.

Ronald “The Candy Man” O’Bryan: The Man Who Killed Halloween

One of the biggest rules of Halloween is to always check your candy. Every year, parents would warn their children about the possibilities of receiving poisoned candy from a maniac with a vendetta. As a kid, one couldn’t help but imagine razor-blades piercing into your gums and filling your mouth up with blood. You were convinced one of your neighbors carefully placed needles into goody bags to prick your delicate fingertips as you excitedly reached inside for your favorite treat.

There were rogue candy-givers out there—and they wanted to ruin Halloween.

So where did the candy-paranoia come from? Why were parents so cautious about what was hiding in their kid’s plastic jack-o-lanterns?

One person is responsible for changing Halloween forever: Ronald Clark O’Bryan. He is the man who killed Halloween.
