Happy Halloween season to all those who are reading this content. In these days of the global pandemic and losing economy, we all are hungry and thirsty for a moment of joy and happiness. But we also have to follow the instructions to stay safe. I'm pointing towards Covid-19 safety instructions. What's safer than being in your home and having fun.

As we all know, the annual NYC Village Halloween parade is canceled this year, but it's an opportunity to stay at home and spend this event with our families and loved ones. What's more entertaining than watching a great seasonal movie. I always loved to spend my events by watching movies in the evenings. If you're also the same, then consider watching some of the following movies with your family so this Halloween season you can bring a little bit of joy and a smile to the faces you love.
