It's September. You know what that means? Time for Fall, pumpkin spice everything, Halloween and scary movie marathons! Also, time for my favorite- Trick and Treat! In case you're new around here, this is where I watch a scary movie and eat/drink some sort of themed treat. I watch all these movies every year anyway- so it's just a little extra fun to have a special treat along with the viewing. You can see past Trick and Treats here. Now, lets get started...
For my first "scary" movie of the season I give you Practical Magic. Scare factor: none. Well, there is, like, one resurrection and a seance but it's not bad. I enjoy this movie for the atmosphere of magic and whimsy. It's light and romantic, with some good Sandra Bullock cries. For my treat: Midnight Margaritas!
