2023 Just Another Film Blog Awards

It’s once again time for the Oscars. In 2019 I decided to start my own film awards the JAFB Awards and I received an overwhelming response! So, I am very happy to share with you the winners of The JABF Awards 2023.

Not-So-Scary Movie Watchlist

Happy spooky season! I’ve spent September dusting off my vampire fangs, shining my witches' shoes and growing pumpkins in anticipation of Autumn and Halloween! I absolutely love Autumn, it’s not too cold, the trees become an array of bright colours, everything gets a little spooky and there are some great seasonal movies to watch with a hot drink and a cosy blanket. Over the past few years I’ve always created Autumn themed bucket lists, last years was even Harry Potter themed (find them here: Autumn Bucket lists).

This year I decided to combine my love for Halloween with my love for films and create a movie watchlist. There are so many horror films, thrillers and all-round spooky films to watch at Halloween. However, what do you watch when like me, you hate scary films? Well, I’ve put together a bucket list of the best not so spooky films to watch this Halloween. All the Halloween movie fun, without having to skip a night's sleep! I hope you enjoy this Not-So-Scary Movie Watchlist!!!

Let me know what movie you are planning on watching first? What is our go to spooky film?
