I'm pleased to welcome the author, Amy Lukavics, author of The Women In The Walls, onto the blog to tell us her Top 5 Halloween movies.
1) Trick 'r Treat: This one is a long-time fave of mine, and I make sure to watch it every year. It seriously never gets old! I love anthology movies, so you can't really go wrong with a Halloween anthology. I even have a signed photo from the actor who played Sam hanging over my writing desk!
2) House of 1,000 Corpses: What goes down on Halloween night in this story is enough to turn my insides to ice. This movie is wickedly brutal, so if that doesn't bother you, get ready for one hell of a crazy ride.
3) Pet Sematary: This isn't technically a Halloween movie, but I wanted to include it anyway because it's a total classic for me and it always hits all the right horror nostalgia notes. Eerie and amazing, the perfect October watch.
4) Monster House: This movie rocks! Funny, compelling, and definitely spooky. A very entertaining Halloween story for kids and adults alike.
5) Hocus Pocus: Do you care to explain to me how I could possibly list my top five Halloween films without mentioning Hocus Pocus?! IT IS LEGENDARY, THE END.
The Women in the Walls by Amy Lukavics was published by Simon and Schuster.
Lucy Acosta's mother died when she was three. Growing up in a Victorian mansion in the middle of the woods with her cold, distant father, she explored the dark hallways of the estate with her cousin, Margaret. They're inseparable—a family.
When her aunt Penelope, the only mother she's ever known, tragically disappears while walking in the woods surrounding their estate, Lucy finds herself devastated and alone. Margaret has been spending a lot of time in the attic. She claims she can hear her dead mother's voice whispering from the walls. Emotionally shut out by her father, Lucy watches helplessly as her cousin's sanity slowly unravels. But when she begins hearing voices herself, Lucy finds herself confronting an ancient and deadly legacy that has marked the women in her family for generations.
