MAKE IT CUTE
Scary Movie Sleepover
Everybody loves a good Halloween movie, so what could be better than a whole night full of ‘em? Whether you wanna be scared out of your mind or just need a little spook to liven up the season, you’ll get your fill with this scary movie sleepover.
Grab a stack of white cardstock and cut out invites in the shape of ghosts. Give ‘em all faces and write out your party’s 411 across their billowing white tummies. When your finished, rub dots of glue all over the card and spread fake spider webs across the surface of the invite. It should be thin enough to see through but thick enough to be creepily arachnid-like to touch.
You want your guests to be just a little nervous before you press play, so think dark and creepy while you decorate. Turn the lights down low, sprinkle plastic spiders in the corners, drape faux spider webs from shelves and snag a recording of spooky, bump-in-the-night type noises.
Keep your girls from getting’ chilled to the bone with hot chocolate, Mexican style. A dash of cinnamon, pinch o’ nutmeg and your ready to go.

For films that are more funny than freaky, see if you can find way-old horror movies. The original Frankenstein and Dracula films, for example, aren’t as scream inducing for modern audiences that are used to ultra-realistic special effects.
