THIS IS HALLOWEEN: the Do's and Don'ts

When you look back on
Halloween in a week, a month,
or a year, you want to remember
it as one of the best weekends of
your life. Follow these do's and
don'ts to ensure your weekend is
a dream, not a nightmare.
Halloween is the one time of

could be anything from a beanie
baby to Austin Powers to Harry
Potter to a dust bunny. This is
your opportunity to escape from
reality, which is pretty ideal right
after midterms. Especially after
getting your grades back.
GO ALL OUT
Throughout the year, you
may go to a variety of themed
parties, but wearing a sequin
headband isn't exactly "dressing
up." Halloween is the time to go
all out. From your head to your
toes, nothing should be out of against.

It's finally Halloween, giving
students across campus an
excuse to dress up in ridiculous
outfits for one night of the year.
Whether you're at a Halloween-
themed party or trick-or-
treating, you'll eventually have
some down time. I know there's
homework to do and tests to
study for, but take a break from
all of that. Instead, sit back and
choose from one of these must-
watch Halloween movies.
If you had any sort of
childhood, you had to have seen
the great Disney classic from
1998, "Halloweentown." In a
time before DVR cable boxes,
annually became a tradition for
Marnie Piper's family as they
try to stop the darkness from
taking over Halloweentown, a
society full of ghouls and ghosts
that is separate from society.
Even now, this movie still packs
all of the enjoyment my younger
self felt every year.
If you love this movie
enough, watch the sequel
"Halloweentown II: Kalabar's
Revenge." It doesn't have that
feeling of originality, but is still
fun like the original. But be
advised: avoid "Halloweentown
High" and "Return to
Halloweentown," both of which
may lead you to throw up the
candy you worked hard to get.
"In space, no one can hear
If that doesn't make your
blood curdle, good for you.
But for the rest of us, "Alien"
is a classic sci-fi horror
movie that follows a group of
scientists traveling in outer
space on a research mission.
If you like Sigourney Weaver,
chest-bursting aliens and
'face-huggers' (still give me
nightmares), this is the movie
If you want less of a
psychological thriller and
more of a sci-fi action movie
with horror elements, watch
"Aliens." This sequel is just as
scary, but focuses more on the
fight against the xenomorph
aliens. The movie's most
memorable line is "They mostly
come out at night. Mostly."
In other words, save this
movie for the daytime if you like
CABIN IN THE WOODIS
When I first watched "Cabin
in the Woods," my first thought
was, Isn't that the actor who
plays Thor? It has to be a good
movie. But I quicklylearnedthat
Chris Hemsworth's painful-to-
watch performance signaled
this was a movie poking fun
at horror movie culture while
also trying to be considered a
legitimate scary movie itself.
The movie is about a group of
teenagers who decide it would
be a great idea to stay alone in
a cabin in the woods. If you've
ever seen a scary movie, you can
probably infer how the rest of
the story goes.
There are moments where
I laughed, moments where I
hugged my knees, and moments
where I cried (from more
hysterical laughter). Overall,
this is a great movie to get akick
out of with your friends. The
ending of the movie escalates
very quickly, and will leave you
"Beetlejuice" is a classic late
'80s movie starring Michael
Keaton, Alec Baldwin and
Geena Davis. More importantly,
"Beetlejuice" is directed by Tim
Burton. Burton, an expert in
quirky horror films, takes us on
an adventure with Baldwin and
Davis, a married couple who die
in the beginning of the movie.
Upon their death, we follow
them through the world of
the dead until they return to
the home they left behind and
haunt its newest residents.
"Beetlejuice" is one of the
funniest Halloween movies I've
seen. If you've never seen it,
you're definitely missing out.
