Choose the Right Moviemovie

First and foremost, no scary movie marathon would come about without choosing the right Halloween movies! This is the absolute most key item that homeowners and their families should prepare. After all, if the movies are lukewarm, then the whole movie marathon itself will be lukewarm. Need some ideas? Check these out:
  • Blair Witch Project
  • Carrie
  • Halloween
  • Hocus Pocus
  • House of 1000 Corpses
  • The Addams Family

These are by no means all-encompassing. Homeowners should consider asking all family members (and any friends who plan to attend) what type of movie they are looking for. Maybe there are horror lovers, while others prefer the classics and are more family-friendly. The possibilities are endless!

Ready the Snacks and Blankets

Once the movie selection is handled, the next most important step is to ready the snacks and blankets. After all, people will want to be fed and comfortable while they are watching their movies. They will need energy to endure the marathon! Homeowners can even spice things up with some unique Halloween treats that guests will remember forever:

  • Candy corn brownies
  • Frankenstein-decorated marshmallows
  • Peanut butter eyeball truffles
  • Pumpkin shaped Rice Krispie treats

There are an endless number of creative treat ideas that guests will love. Homeowners should also prepare items so viewers can enjoy their movies comfortably. Pillows and blankets are a must. Chairs are also great to have, depending on the number of guests expected to attend. An existing couch setup may also suffice.

Get the Furnace Serviced!fixing

Last but not least, homeowners should make sure to get their furnaces serviced. By the time Halloween gets here, the cold temperatures will most certainly have arrived. Regular heater service and heater maintenance are absolute musts, as these will ensure that the home is nice and toasty when the guests arrive for the scary movie marathon.

Furnace inspections are one of the most important parts of a maintenance check. Professionals will usually check the ductwork and vents to ensure that there are no leaks or blockages. By doing so, they can also make repairs as necessary and make adjustments that can help improve the system's efficiency.
