100 Days of Halloween: A Couple of Good Movies for Your Halloween Movie List

I caught up on some movie watching this weekend and watched to really good movies that will get you in the mood for Halloween.

I'm going to go ahead and give the IMDb description. Why re-write what's already good.....

The first is The Possession
A young girl buys an antique box at a yard sale, unaware that inside the collectible lives a malicious ancient spirit. The girl's father teams with his ex-wife to find a way to end the curse upon their child.

This movie is based on a true story and I remember seeing the story on the TV show "The Haunted". Here is a link to the real story The Possession and Its True Story

I like ghost stories more than gore stories. This movie is along the lines of a ghost story with some good surprise moments that scared the crap out of me. 

The other movie I saw was "The Awakening".

In 1921, England is overwhelmed by the loss and grief of World War I. Hoax exposer Florence Cathcart visits a boarding school to explain sightings of a child ghost. Everything she believes unravels as the 'missing' begin to show themselves.

This is a great Halloween movie! Ghosts, a spooky boarding school in England, scary dollhouses, etc. No gore, just a good ghost story. I don't want to give too much away. So, get some popcorn and a blanket, cozy up on the couch and enjoy the movies!

Spooky Treats, Voodoo Dolls, Pumpkins and Halloween Art by Hoodoo & Jynxed Art

Halloween has always been a year long passion for me. I have always been drawn to the imagery, especially the vintage images of cats in star covered witches hats, Jack O'Lanterns with wicked grimaces and witches flying in front of a grinning moon. 
As a professional artist, I have done everything from portraits, logos, signs, tattoos to designing stained glass windows. Many of my pieces are in private collections. I create about 200 - 300 pieces of realistic art / Halloween art & handcrafted items a year. I gladly accept commissions for custom art as well. Feel free to email me about your project.
