Horror movies might seem like the obvious choice for a night in with your date on Halloween, the scariness leading to inevitable cuddling. Yet the cannon of less terrifying spooky flicks can give you more helpful romance advice than your average self-help book. And really, do you want to watch a bunch of movies that teach you that after you have sex you’ll get chopped up by an ax murderer? Or one that shows you that even after a few indiscretions, ranging from marrying another to sleeping with a manic transsexual, your partner will be all too happy take you back, or at least join you in a water orgy?

While I did a slideshow of celeb Halloween costume earlier this morning, Courtney Stodden and Doug Hutchison (dressed up as Courtney Stodden) clearly deserve their own post. This can’t be unseen, I’m sad to report. [Celebitchy]

What is coming to get you? I’m personally far more afraid of being abducted by aliens than I am of the Blair Witch, because duh, I hate camping and never intend to go. Maybe I would fit in better with the people of Montana. How about you? What is your most feared horror movie scenario? (Click here to see full size image!) [Very Small Array]
Welcome to the phenomenon known as “pumpkin birthing.” Yes, that would be pumpkins giving birth to baby pumpkins. Don’t forget to pop the afterbirth seeds into the oven for a tasty treat. Thank you, Internet. Check out more pumpkin births here. [Buzzfeed]
