October has quickly revealed itself this year, so you’d be forgiven if you don’t feel particularly Halloweeny (totally a word!)
So how about a film marathon to get you into the spirit of All Hallows’ Eve?If you’re not a fan of ghastly ghouls and brain-munching zombies, don’t worry. We’ll ease you into the Halloween holiday spirit with some classic non-scary Halloween films.
If you haven’t already seen Ghostbusters, you need to correct that right away. Stop reading this list and seek it out immediately!
Why is it a Halloween cassic?
Despite being almost 30 years old, Ghostbusters has truly stood the test of time. Constantly quotable, this fan favourite isn’t just about slimy spirits and witty one-liners. There are still some genuinely spooky moments in the film helped along by the brilliant CGI. And although they take a lot of effort to make, the ghost buster suits are kickass Halloween costumes.
This is a recipe that I adapted from the BBC website. I used red onion in place of the shallots, as I forgot to buy some. I also used vegetarian stock in place of chicken stock. I pureed the pumpkin before, as I found it easier to stir into the risotto. I also added some spinich as I love spinich in a risotto!
