There is always something special about films that return a filmmaker to his beginnings in some way, shape, or form. Such a film may not always end up as a ‘return to form,’ but for a filmmaker to return to his roots is undeniably exciting. Before Zack Snyder became a fanboy favorite as the director of multiple different graphic novel adaptations such as Man of Steel or 300, his very first feature film was the 2004 remake of the 1970s horror classic Dawn of the Dead. The remake, which was written by James Gunn, is still my favorite film that Snyder has directed, so I was naturally very excited when it was announced that he was returning to the zombie horror sub-genre with Netflix’s Army of the Dead.

It’s way too easy to just name one of the Halloween films, so I’m not going to do that, but these are all films I really enjoy watching, even if horror isn’t my favorite genre at all. So, without further ado, let’s get to it.

Happy Halloween – What To Watch?

Hey there, today I’d like to suggest a couple of films that me and my family loves to watch on Halloween. Sure, Halloween’s not strictly a Scandinavian-tradition – but as Denmark has been Americanized (or rather its youth has been), we’ve started to adopt things.

So, today I’d like to show you some of the films my family likes to watch on Halloween. With that having been said, the obvious ones won’t be featured – i.e. don’t expect films like Halloween or Trick ‘r Treat.
