Scary Movie Marathons Made Easy With These 3 Tips!

DIY the Perfect Halloween Home Theater This Year

Halloween isn’t Halloween without scary movie marathons. And scary movie marathons are nothing without the perfect home theater setup. That doesn’t mean homeowners have to go out and buy a whole new sound system for the occasion, but a few well-picked movies, snacks, and a cozy setup can make a world of difference. When it comes to Halloween movies, there are tons of classics to choose from. Whether homeowners want to have a family movie night or pick something horror-related, there is a perfect movie for everyone this year. However, the home isn’t ready without first tailoring to the furnace to ensure it works efficiently. 

Luckily, professionals have all the tips and tricks to ensure homeowners have the perfect Halloween movie marathon night. All the information homeowners need is located below! 

It Starts With the Perfect Movie Pickmovie

The great thing about a Halloween movie marathon is that there are many great movies to choose from! They don’t all have to be scary movies either. There are choices for the entire family. 

If homeowners want to start their Halloween movie marathon off with family-friendly movies that gradually get scarier as the night goes on, here is a good list to pull from:

  • Ghostbusters
  • Casper
  • Halloweentown
  • Hocus Pocus 
  • Carrie
  • It: Chapter One
  • The Sixth Sense
  • Scream
  • Poltergeist 
  • The VVitch 
  • Midsommar 
  • Halloween

Let’s be honest. If Halloween with Michael Meyers isn’t the finale of Halloween movie marathon night, can it even be considered a Halloween movie marathon?

Blanket Forts and Snacks Are a Must

There’s nothing better than watching numerous movies while cozied up inside a massive blanket fort. This goes for children and adults! There’s no age limit on enjoying a blanket fort. The only difference is that blanket forts tend to get larger and more intricate when they’re for adults. 

If homeowners invite friends over, make sure they bring one blanket to contribute to the fort and another to cover up with, as well as a pillow! 

However, what is a movie marathon without snacks? Homeowners can go the simple route with popcorn, chocolates, and candy corn, or they can try making their own Halloween-themed treats! 

Here are a few ideas: 

  • Magic Wands: Dip pretzel sticks into melted chocolate, add Halloween sprinkles to the chocolate end, and put a piece of candy corn on the end and let it dry
  • Strawberry Ghosts: Dip strawberries into white chocolate and add ghost faces to them
  • Frankenstein Rice Krispie Treats: A little food coloring turns the Rice Krispie green, then uses minor art skills to put together the monster’s face with icing
  • Eyeballs: Cakepops that look like bloodshot eyes

Don’t Forget the Furnacefurnace

Although hearing the furnace make unusual noises during the movie could add to the scary appeal of the entire evening, it is best to ensure the furnace is working properly before hosting a scary movie marathon this Halloween. 

If homeowners want to scare their guests, they can plan to bang on the walls themselves; there’s no sense in risking the entire night with a broken-down furnace because the homeowner didn’t have their heater professionally maintained before the evening’s festivities. 

This time of year tends to be busy for HVAC workers, so homeowners should try to schedule in late September or early October.
