We're having major snowstorms in my neck of the woods, and I love it! I don't think it's snowed this much since I was in elementary school. Some of my favorite memories of being a kid include snow; I'd go out sledding with my friends, make snowmen and snow angels and have oodles of snowball fights. But my favorite part of snow days was coming inside! My mom would have hot chocolate, toasty pajamas right out of the dryer and my blankets and pillows all ready, waiting for me to get cozy on the couch to watch a movie.
I might still go sledding, but all this snow has me in cozy mode. Despite a laundry list of things to do as tall as me (a petite 5' but still..) all I want to do is make some hot chocolate, snuggle with my blankets (and cat) and watch a movie. And no movies make me quite as snug-as-a-bug-in-a-rug as spooky ones!
I just watched The Uninvited this weekend for the first time, and I loved it (and highly recommend it!) Now I'm in the mood for more films of that genre, but I can't think of any. I flipped through my dvds looking for anything remotely resembling a ghostly-spooky-haunted kind of movie, but all I can come up with are thrillers and mysteries about murderers or psychopaths. It's just not what I have in mind...
Any suggestions for spooky flicks are greatly welcome!!
