Disney's The Watcher in the Woods Movie Review

The Watcher In The Woods was Walt Disney's 1980 attempt to move beyond its usual type of film and into the horror movie genre. Based on the novel of the same name written by Florence Engel Randall, it is a suspense-driven rather than a gore-driven... Learn more about The Watcher In The Woods here.

Disneyland Halloween Decorating Videos

If you are crafty and you love Halloween, you are going to LOVE the Halloween decorating tips shared by Disneyland Resort's David Caranci in these three Youtube videos. I do.

They're fairly simple, fast and inexpensive and include a ghost made from PVC and a recycled soda pop bottle; a simple and different way to decorate a pumpkin; some candy corn made out of construction cones; a Jack Skellington Halloween tree; and some shrunken apple heads.

My only complaint about these videos is that they are TOO SHORT, LOL!

I hope you found some Halloween inspiration in these videos.

Happy Haunting!
