25.10 - Brooke TX's Task: Hocus Pocus FTW

Fall is the best season for obvious reasons: Pumpkin spice lattes. Cozy cardigans. And my yearly re-watch of 1993 cult classic film Hocus Pocus, so I can relive my 90s childhood by quoting Bette Midler as Winifred Sanderson.

For this challenge, you must read a book 1 and a book 2, OR read one book which fulfills all task requirements that is also at least 500 pages long.
One of your books MUST have a main page genre of Horror or Thriller, standalone or embedded.
One of your books may have a main page genre of Comics/Sequential Art/Graphic Novel/Manga.

Start by choosing a film from this List of films set around Halloween.
Required: State your chosen film in your post.

Book 1: Read a book with a word of at least 3 letters in the title/subtitle that matches a word in the title of your chosen film (the/and are excluded). Words must match exactly.

Book 2: Read a book first published the same year your chosen film was released.

Those all work, as long as your book title word matches spelling exactly. So June 30th, June 30th would work, but not The Thirtieth Year: Stories, Richard III but not Three to Get Deadly, etc.

Mel | 57 comments Hi,

Would it be possible to lock the movies just like we do with the MPGs? I remember reading in the problems with completed tasks that a movie disappeared from the Wiki page.

Number 1 title and number 12 publication year of a series i'm about to read fit together in one of the movies (perfect!), but there will be some time in between reading them..

Could you confirm Return of the Living Dead: Rave to the Grave (2005) being on the Wiki page?

Thanks in advance!

Best,
Mel
