Hello everyone! Around this time I always feel like we are in between seasons. September has always been that in between month where the last of the hot weather lingers on. But you see nature around wanting to transition to fall with the turning of the leaves. It make me want to watch certain movies that feel like it is a good transition into my favorite month. Which is October because of two reasons my birthday AND my favorite holiday which is Halloween!!!
So here are five movies that help me into that fall like tradition!
(1980)directed by William Friedkin and starring Al Pacino and Karen Allen. This probably my favorite movie by William Frienkin. Mostly due the grittiness of the movie and the amazing soundtrack. It is one of those movies that definitely leaves an interesting mark on your mind after you watch it.

Rock ‘n’ Roll High School:
(1979) directed by Allan Arkush. Starring the RAMONES!!! and PJ Soles. The Ramones is one of my favorite bands EVER! And this movie is so much fun to watch! I think anything fun and worth singing along to in a movie is a definite must watch. It has a good mixture of quirky characters and with the setting being a school. I feel like this is a must watch for this month!

So it is no hidden secret that one of my favorite directors is John Waters. But not a lot of people know that my favorite movie of his is Polyester. This is the first movie I watched that had a scratch and sniff card to follow while watching it! Plus this movie also stars one of my forever icons Divine! This movie is got the Criterion Collection treatment and is being release by them on September 17th! Even the Criterion Collection cover is super dreamy!

The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr Toad:
(1949) directed by Clyde Geronimi and Jack Kinney. There were two segments in this movie the first was “The Wind in the Willows” with Mr. Toad:
However when I was little I remember watching “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” more heavily of the two when I was little:
After watching it I had a huge obsessions with pumpkins and would begged my parents for my birthday that I wanted nothing but pumpkins as birthday gifts. I feel like this is a staple must watch for the fall. The scenery in this movie makes just want to put on a sweater and make a mug of warm apple cider.

The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr Toad
(1985)- directed by Dario Argento. Starring Jennifer Connelly, Donald Pleasence and Daria Nicolodi. This movie is about a girl named Jennifer Corvino (who is played by Jennifer Connelly) who has an interesting super power. She is able to talk to insects and they are able to communicate back to her. While she realizes her super strength there is a string of murders happening around her and she is able to use her super powers to find out who the murder is! This movie has a good mixture of horror and a bit of sci fi mixed into one! Plus it does not hurt that this movie was filmed among the Swiss alps that makes me just want to quite my job and move there! This is a good fall movie to watch in order to get ready for Halloween!
