Happy Halloween, everybody! Since the ghoulish holiday falls on a Monday this year, we’re assuming many of you hit your Halloween parties over the weekend — and have had your fill of putting on a ridiculous costume and enjoying far too many adult beverages. So if, like us, you’re staying in for the night, we’d like to suggest a few cinematic All Hallows’ Eve celebrations that you might visit this evening instead. After the jump, join us for a look at a few movie Halloween parties we’d like to attend.
Leave it to Tina Fey, who penned the screenplay to this terrific 2004 high school comedy, to get right to the heart of the matter when it comes to Halloween costumes: “In the real world, Halloween is when kids dress up in costumes and beg for candy. In Girl World, Halloween is the one day a year when a girl can dress up like a total slut and no other girls can say anything else about it.” Poor Cady (Lindsay Lohan) doesn’t know this important factoid when she goes all out with her terrifying costume, and gets her heart broken at the big Halloween party. For everyone else though, it looks like a pretty fun shindig: drinking, dancing, and Rachel McAdams in a bunny costume.
