Family Movie Night: Halloween Edition

October 31 is quickly approaching and we can’t think of a better way to get into the spooky holiday spirit (no pun intended) than curling up on the couch and watching an awesome Halloween movie with your family. Not sure where to start? Well, you’re in luck. We’ve rounded up some of the best scary flicks, guaranteed to raise some goosebumps!  

#1- Hocus Pocus

By far one of the most iconic Halloween flicks, the antics of this witchy trio will certainly put you into the spooky holiday spirit.

#2- The Addams Family

Traditional songs of Halloween are few and far between. However, this classic movie features one of the most renowned tunes of any Halloween playlist, and is sure to be stuck in your head for weeks to come.

#3- Halloweentown (The Series)

The four-part Disney Channel Original series covers the adventures of Marnie Piper as she transitions between the regular world and the fantastical universe of Halloweentown. Join Marnie on all of her fun adventures because Halloween is COOL.

#4- It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

This is one of the oldest films on the list, but the story never gets old. Follow the Peanuts gang on their quest to find the Great Pumpkin.  

#5- The Nightmare Before Christmas

Get excited for Halloween and Christmas in Tim Burton’s unique idea of blending concepts from these two holidays in this stop-motion animated classic. This movie has great characters, an amazing soundtrack, and a wonderful plot.

#6- Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

Halloween is all about treats, and this movie will surely have you craving candy! If you didn’t grab any chocolate to snack on before sitting down to watch either of these movies, you’ll definitely want to take a quick intermission to go grab some!

#7- Hotel Transylvania

Watch as the iconic monster, Dracula, plays a whole new role, as the resort owner for Hotel Transylvania!

#8- Ghostbusters (New & Old)

Get the family to watch the original from 1984 before jumping ahead to the all-female 2016 remake. Good luck getting the kids to stop singing the theme song!

#9- Goosebumps

The 2015 reboot featuring the comedic style of Jack Black puts a whole new spin on the short stories written by R.L. Stein.

#10- The Haunted Mansion

Embark on the one and only tour of The Haunted Mansion. This movie will put you at the edge of your seat in taking you on the journey with the Evers family.

So grab your blankets, the Halloween candy (that you know was really supposed to be for the trick or treaters), dim the lights, and get ready for a magical night of whimsy and spooky.
