Couple in love lying in bed, eating popcorn and watching a movie, relaxing at home at night

Make sure to cleanse your horror movie palette with these comedies.  The temperatures dropped a little more this past weekend and more leaves were falling from our trees.  My dog Zoe sat on the back patio soaking up the sun and watching the squirrels.  I cut the grass and completed some other minor yard tasks without breaking a sweat.  Fall has entered the chat and now’s when we really start getting into Spooky Season.

What To Watch

I’m always a little overwhelmed with what to watch this time of year.  There are so many great Halloween movies and shows, but it’s hard to watch them all in October.  Nonetheless, my wife and I have been powering through our favorites and actually watched a new one over the weekend.  I highly recommend “M3GAN” for a different, but also very real type of thrill.

Can You Watch Too Much?

Have you ever binged a series straight through, or watched a movie trilogy, and before you know it the day is gone?  I hate that feeling of feeling absolutely drained after watching a new series while also realizing you were supposed to do laundry or clean bathrooms.  I get a similar feeling when I watch too many horror movies consecutively.  If you get that heavy-brained or groggy feeling after a full day of fright, do what I do and throw a comedy in the mix.

Don’t Let Them Eat Your Brains

There’s nothing wrong with being in the season and watching scary movies all day, every weekend, for the entire month of October.  A lot of us do the same thing for Christmas, although some start celebrating Christmas on November 1st.  It’s nice to refresh your brain from the slayings and screams with light laughter and whimsical puns.  I like to throw in an episode of The Office or end movie night with some humor.  Make sure to cleanse your horror movie palette with any one of my favorite comedies.

  • Napoleon Dynamite

    The humor is dry and a little juvenile but this movie has become a classic comedy.  One-liners in this comedy are still referenced today.

  • Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy

    This is in my top 5 of all-time favorite comedies.  There is a scene where a character gets his arm chopped off.  That’s still spooky, right?

  • The Office

    This is my number one go-to already when it comes to comfort shows.  The Halloween episodes are exceptionally funny this time of year and actually provide some great costume ideas.  I forget to be “3- Hole-Punch Jim(Fenway)” every year.

  • The Hangover

    Hilarious from beginning to end and will certainly cleanse your horror movie palette for a couple of hours.  I can always taste the jagermeister when they cheers on the roof and I hate it.

  • Schitt's Creek

    This is my second go-to but my favorite type of comedy.  It’s filled with some of the wittiest one-liners and I still catch something new every time I run through it.  I’m currently streaming it for the 8th time.

  • Hubie Halloween

    Adam Sandler isn’t for everybody and while some might consider this movie dumb, they make it hard to look away.  It does provide a bit of a spooky plot if you want to stay in Halloween mode when you want to watch something a little less scary.  I’ve watched it 3 times already and intend on watching it about 4 more times.

  • What We Do In The Shadows

    Filmed in mockumentary style, this show is like The Office but about Vampires living together amongst mortals.  It’s very easy to watch while staying in spooky mode and they’re still dishing out new seasons.
