Let’s deviate With Movies 2-Night

  Tonight, guys, I wanted us to have a night of relaxation and really get into that spooky spirit. I have a couple of movies that I really, really enjoy this time of year. I guess you could say I have annual traditions for myself. Funny thing is, it’s pretty much just Halloween that I ritualize. 

     These two movies that I watch each year are so vastly different from one another, so now that I think about it, I’m not sure what order to put them in. I’ll leave that up to you. No one says we have to watch these together. But, if you want to, feel free to join my Rabb.it tonight!

     2. Thir13en Ghosts

     For some reason, this is one of my favorite movies of all time. Growing up, I always loved the idea of the Zodiac signs having meanings and stories behind them. When I was about 16, I found this movie hiding in my family’s movie collection and gave it a watch. Imagine my immense joy when I found that it had a dark zodiac.

     I love everything about this movie, from the stories that the ghosts have to the glass house and the Occularis Infernum. The only thing I don’t like is that they kill my favorite character and that I always know it’s coming now. I remember finding this movie among my mom’s huge collection of movies and popping it in. It was probably one of the first really dark movies I watched, and I love the idea of a Black Zodiac.

     Also, I was absolutely in love with the detail in this movie. They gave the ghosts their own backstories which were better than the movie as a whole. In fact… I think each ghost actually would benefit from their own movie, or maybe an anthology?

     Click here to join us in watching Thir13en Ghosts at 7:00 PM EST. Grab your popcorn and keep your drinks handy!

     1. Hocus Pocus

      Not the remake. Oh goodness no. I don’t think I ever intend to watch them shred my #1 Halloween movie to bits. Bette Midler is a gem, and Sarah Jessica Parker is actually rather adorable herself. I love this movie and always dreamed about having a little black cat named Thackeray Binx after Binx from this movie.

     I think this is the perfect Halloween movie. It’s a little gimmicky, and all in good fun. It has a festive and light feeling, despite the Sanderson’s literally wanting to eat children. If you ignore that tidbit, it’s light-hearted, I swear! 

     Click here to ring in Halloween with us at 9:30 PM EST, after a brief intermission between movies. Refresh your drink and grab some more popcorn!

   I’ve been harping at you to join in on the movie night, so here’s the link! CLICK

6 Ghoulish Treats from PSNT

Hey guys! Happy Second Day of Halloween! Who would love to get cupcakes in your treat bag for Halloween? I’d like to point out how messy and impractical that would be before announcing that I kind of did just that! Sans the bag of course.  Petite Sweets n Treats came through!

     I talked to the lovely Francine over at Petite Sweets N Treats to make us some JNJ approved Halloween treats! I didn’t give her any specifications, other than “We need Halloween cupcakes- have fun!”. This post really is a surprise for me too, I had no idea what I was getting into by asking a baker to whip us up this batch of cakes!

    I’m not sure how much commentary these need, since they’re delicious and just the right amount of creepy. If you want to use these amazing cakes as a springboard for your own creepy cakes, be sure to share it with us and tag @java_and_jeans on instagram so we can drool too!     

     I threw these into a gallery to inspire you, and maybe tempt you to try your hand at cake decorating. Just looking at these when I picked these up made me want to see what I could do if I make my own treats. 

 

   Guys, in true Petite Sweets n Treats Fashion, these are delicious! Pardon the lack of cutting pictures of Pennywise. That’s a surprise for someone at work and I wanted to wait to dig in. I hope these are able to inspire you this Halloween to try something new and adventurous with your desserts.

      Who knows, maybe you can make them for the movie night coming up! Just a quick reminder, I’ll be hosting two movies on October 30th at 7:00 PM and 9:30 PM EST. Showtime will end at about 11:00 PM EST. The link is here!
