A Chilly Halloween Horror Movie Guide

Chilly good times are creepin' up...

It's October again  — the only time of the year you can head to the streets wrapped in toilet paper, and no one bats an eyelash...though they might snap a pic of two!
Budget costumes aside, we at The Ice Cream & Cookie Co. prefer spending this spooky night in. Picture this: You. A friend or two. On the couch in pumpkin-patterned pyjamas.

Tons of ice cream & treats for those who'll come a-knockin'. And a classic horror movie marathon. 

No fuss. No frills. With just the right amount of chills and thrills. Now, venture on for our Chilly Halloween Movie Guide...

Who ya gonna call?

Ghostbusters (1984) — Let us apologise in advance for getting the theme song stuck in your head. Who ya gonna call...ahem. Pay homage to this campy act's two iconic ghosts - who happen to be very gelatinous - by indulging in our Toasted Marshmallow Ice Cream Sandwich and Mint Chocolate Gelato Pint. Stay puft!

What's your favourite scary movie?

Scream (1996)  The scariest bit about this classic teen slasher flick is that there aren't any ghosts or demons - just a real human being like you and I having a bloody good time on a killer rampage. Um, how about a Strawberries & Cream Ice Cream Sandwich to accompany that thought?

Yaas queen

Scream Queens (2015) It's time to get your girls together for a TV marathon: inspired by the 2008 hit TV series of the same name, this black comedy is filled with hilarious one-liners that satirise modern pop culture... while a serial killer goes on a murderous rampage. The privileged sorority girls of Kappa Kappa Tau make sure to look fabulous while running for their lives, and we're dead certain they'd dig into one last slice of our luxe Earl Grey Ice Cream Cake before getting murdered.

Fire burn and caldron bubble

Hocus Pocus (1993) The quintessential film about stereotypical witches - broomsticks, spells, bubbling caldrons, eating children, and bad make up. What's not to love? We think there's nothing more ideal than conjuring up an ice cream spell of your own while watching the Sanderson witches, with our Customised Gelato Pints! Just no eye of newt or salamander's tongue here, we gotta tell ya.

Jason, Jason, Jason

Friday The 13th (1980) — We kinda steer cleared of guys named Jason after this film, not gonna lie. Friday the 13th of October just passed us, and we hope everyone made it past safe and...alive. Here's a tip: dig into a pint of Milk & Cookies Gelato to remind yourself there are still good things in the world, while watching teenagers get brutally murdered.

This Is Halloween!

The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993) — A regular unorthodox Tim Burton film about Christmas, which tends to get the run-of-the-mill feel-good holiday treatment. The season of joy gets a Halloween mash-up, and the film's heartwarmingly creepy characters will find their way into your heart. The perfect kooky family flick, get a Sandwich Stack to share whilst gathered around the TV. Quite possibly the only Halloween flick that'll have everyone going to bed smiling and humming one of its musical numbers, 'This Is Halloween'.

I see dead people

The Sixth Sense (1999) — The film that established director M. Night Shyamalan in the eyes of the public, it deals with the superpower most of us wouldn't want to have (and if you do - what's wrong with you?). Have a comforting pint of Choc Fudge Cookie Gelato to distract you from the thought that there might be dead people next to you right now. You're welcome.

You gotta get out of that house

Get Out (2017) — File this under the new generation of horror films: plots with no ghosts, demons, monsters, or even masked serial killers - just plain ol' suburban folk that are capable of deviancy so evil and so convoluted - you'll never sleep again. You could try finishing an entire S'mores Toasted Marshmallow Ice Cream Cake to feel better about the world after this. It could work. Maybe.

We don't know about you, but we'll spending November 1st taking a long, long, ice cream nap.
