We’re heading into the fall time of year. The time of year where all the coffee shops add Pumpkin spice on the menu, scary movies start showing and the holiday season begins. Most families may load up on hot cocoa to see their favorite Halloween show or movie or plan a trip to their local theme park or festivals that include fright nights, scary hayrides or haunted houses.

You can check your local areas for places to get your scare on but if you have theme parks or something similar then this is the best time of year. On the West Coast you have Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood from Sept 9- Oct 31. There is the Oogie Boogie Bash at Disney California from Sept 3-Oct 21st and Haunted Mansion Holiday at Disneyland, which is more family friendly than Universal. Magic Mountain also has Fright Fest that begins on Sept 11-Oct 31. In Northern California, you have Six Flags Discovery Kingdom Fright Fest which starts Sept 25-Oct 31 and California’s Great America Halloween Haunt which starts Sept 24th-Oct 31. For the East Coast, there is Halloween Horror Nights Orlando which began Sept 3-Oct 31. They have scare zones and houses for you to enjoy. Most rides are open during horror nights. Check your local listings for your fright fest for all the areas in between. Your local malls and fairgrounds may have haunted houses, scare zones and rides as well. The holiday season is upon us and before we give thanks, let’s get scared into the Fall season.
If you like to be scared on the small screen instead of in person, there is a whole lot of content coming on the big and small screens. Currently, in theaters, Don’t Breathe 2, Demonic, The Night House, Candyman, We Need to Do Something and Malignant are showing. Upcoming movies are There’s Someone Inside Your House, Lamb, the anticipated Halloween Kills, Antlers and Last Night in Soho. These movies all come out prior to Halloween.

On the small screen, you can search your favorite streaming service i.e., Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime and Disney+ all will highlight the popular scary movies for you and your family to watch in the comfort of your own home. So, whether you enjoy your scares inside or out, there is something to do and watch for everyone in your family.
This time of year goes by fast, that we’ll be celebrating Christmas before you know it and all the major parks transition from horror to a Winter Wonderland. The same for all the programing and movies. Beginning in November, the movies will go from horror to family friendly and love in time for the Christmas season.
Will you be going to any fright fest or haunted houses this season? Is this your favorite time of year?
