Tonight is Halloween. One step light, one step heavy, swinging uncontrollably from left to right I started walking home late after a night's revelling at the pub dressing as Count Dracula's bride. I refused a lift from a mate because I didn't want to risk the chance of throwing up in my amigo's new Mercedes. Besides, I felt extra foolhardy and adventurous after the countless shots I put away in my hollowed legs that I challenged everyone for a sleepover at a cemetery but no one was up for it. At my age, it seems most of my companions' sole ambition is to be dull and unassuming. Father always told me to blend in with the crowd for security reasons. But father was not here. On top of that, I must have walked this path a thousand times and know it like the back of my hand. I could walk home backwards with my eyes shut and I never felt I had the need to fear anything at all, in light or the shadows.
Halloween was just around the corner, and if you are still feeling the vibes, maybe you would want to watch some nice Halloween movies. Netflix is your one-stop destination if you are looking to watch some good Halloween movies as it boasts a huge collection, but the availability of so many options might leave you confused. So, we have got you covered, and in this article, we have listed the best Halloween movies that you will not want to miss. Let’s scroll down and find the great picks for you.
Here are some scary prompts you can use for inspiration...

You meet a man who claims he's a Jinn (another creation) and he begs you for a place to stay in exchange for power. He promises he'll make you rich if you take care of him. The catch is that you can never see his face because if you do, your heart won't be able to take the fear. You take care of the man, but you must be careful not to look at his face while doing so.
This past Saturday night I was shaken from a lazy night of binge-watching old black and white horror movies on TV by a text from my cousin, Steve. The communication surprised me because we don't really stay in touch. His group text, which also included my sister and his brother, commented on how the appearance of the moon and the clouds that evening reminded him of a similar night nearly forty years ago. One by one, as each of us chimed in with affection towards the memory, my appreciation for Steve's interruption propelled me outside to witness this reminiscent lunar occurrence first-hand.
There is only one night a year he could escape his cave and reign terror on the town below him.
He waited 364 days to come out and play.
In this Halloween during a national pandemic, it is difficult to express how we cannot go out of the house and do our tradition of treat or treating. But, there is nothing wrong with dressing up from what you have available from your wardrobe. This is my first official post on Vocal that I like to share with you.

I have a sweet but slightly creepy haunted Halloween story for you, and this one is true. It just happened.
History first: My beloved stepfather passed away a year ago yesterday. My mother passed away a month and a half ago.

Halloween 2020 has been really rough on my heart. Because of the way things played out for me through the pandemic and such, I just couldn't make a costume work this year. I figured I would take this opportunity to highlight one of my personal favorites from the past years.
Halloween: The one day of the year we can dress as crazy, funny, or as slutty as we want and it’s actually acceptable (for the most part). But what most of us don’t realize is that every detail (or lack of detail) that we put into our costume, communicates something about our personality and dare I say, dating eligibility.
WHEN I PUT ON MY COSTUMES FOR HALLOWEEN this year, it won't be just to dress up and have fun – I'll be doing it as part of my work.
