Host a Halloween Movie Marathon!



Hosting any kind of party if tons of fun, but this one is especially fun. Why? Simple. It encompasses all age groups. 
This party is good for families of all ages to enjoy and get together to have a good time. First, let's
look at things to consider about the party and the movies to decide where to go to from here shall we?






1. Consider the age of your audience. If you plan on inviting people in your own age group, you don't have to set any limits. 
On the other hand, if there is a chance that children will attend, you will need to make sure the movies are PG.








  • 2. Encourage everyone to bring a favorite movie. You may be the host, but that doesn't mean that you have to do everything. By asking your guests to bring a movie, you also ensure that everyone gets to see a film that he enjoys. Homes have many T.V's and sometimes children will go to a bedroom to watch a movie they would prefer. In the meantime, decide how many movies based on the time allotted you will be able to see. Lets assume they are 2 hours each. It's a good assumption then that you will watch 3-4 movies. It is now time to vote on the movies brought over. Or... you can already have them ready. Host chooses.

  • 3. Set the mood. Everyone knows that Halloween should be spooky. When you host a movie marathon, take time to create an eerie atmosphere. This can be as simple as placing candles all around the room. Candles will set the mood, while keeping it dark enough to enjoy the movies.

  • 4. Prepare themed treats. Even if you host a party for adults, it's fun to make themed foods. For example, you could make cookies that look like eyeballs or a graveyard cake. You can make the treats as simple or as complicated as you like. The important thing to remember is to keep it fun. Make several treats and serve a different one in between each movie.
  • Spooky Halloween eyeballs/Kings Hawaiian Baked Ham and Swiss/

  • Apple slices, guacamole and chips, and mummy twinkies


  • 5. Set out bowls of candy. Halloween is all about candy. Buy several different varieties and set them around the room. As the marathon progresses, guests can munch on the different types of candy. Another fun thing to try at this time is some gourmet Halloween popcorn! Yummy!

     Place the popped popcorn, Oreos, and candy corn in a very large bowl

    stirring after each time, until melted. 
    Drizzle over the popcorn mixture and stir to coat each piece of popcorn.
