The Best Nostalgic Halloween Songs

We're really getting into the Halloween spirit here at TheFW. It's nothing new -- it's always been one of our favorite holidays (right after Arbor Day). So, while we enjoying settling down with a good (bad) scary movie, sometimes we wax a little nostalgic. These are the songs from our childhood that really get us in the mood for trick or treating, which we're apparently too "old" to do anymore, unless our plan to dress up like a scary six-year-old finally works. Check them out, and let us know if we missed one of your favorites.

Disney Concept Art – See How Your Favorite Characters Almost Looked

As we showed in our lost Disney songs list, no Disney film is set in stone from start to finish. Plots get written, songs get dropped and characters get redesigned. Looking at early Disney concept art is like finally reading that novel that your favorite movie was based on only to discover it's totally different. Still, there's a simple charm in seeing these characters immediately after being birthed, before they were fine tuned, polished and marketed through endless merchandise.

10 Things You Didn’t Know About ‘The Rocky Horror Picture Show’

Few cult films have been able to define the term as clearly as 1975's Halloween classic ‘The Rocky Horror Picture Show.’ Decades after its release, toilet-paper toting fans still show up week after week at midnight screenings across the globe dressed in fishnet stockings and full makeup. They not only watch the same movie they’ve seen hundreds of times, they also act it out and throw props at the screen. The only way it could be more of a cult is if some kind of live goat sacrifice was involved.

How ‘Batman vs. Superman’ Will Explain Wonder Woman’s Origin

We really don't know much about how Wonder Woman will fit into the plot of 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.' We do know that she's being played by Gal Gadot and that she will, somehow, get some screen time alongside Henry Cavill's Superman, Ben Affleck's Batman and Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor. But that's about it ... until now! Thanks to a tiny snippet (caught on Vine, no less) we now know that DC's Amazon warrior will forego her classic origin story in favor of her modern beginning.
