I love watching spooky movies around Halloween time to get in the Halloween spirit! Halloween is my favorite holiday and I love spending all of October celebrating it; from decorating my apartment, to listening to eerie tunes, to watching creepy movies. If you are looking for some movies to watch around Halloween, here is a list of some spooky movies you can watch to get in the Halloween mood!
1. Hocus Pocus
Hocus Pocus is one of my all-time favorite spooky movies to watch around Halloween time. It is about three witches who come back to life on Halloween night after a couple of kids reignite a curse from hundreds of years before. This movie can be enjoyed by kids and adults alike, as it is not too scary by any means!
Coraline is a pretty creepy movie for being PG. It's about a young girl who wants to live with a more perfect family, but realizes that dream may actually be more of a nightmare when the chance comes along....
Halloweentown is another one of my favorite Halloween movies. It is about a young girl who finds out that she comes from a line of witches and travels to Halloweentown to discover her roots. This movie is usually played a few times in October on the Disney Channel and can be enjoyed by all ages!
4. Addams Family Values
Addams Family Values is a comical movie that can get you in the mood for Halloween. It is based on the original Addams Family, but has a plot twist in which Uncle Fester falls in love with an evil woman who tries to get to his fortune. It is a great movie the whole family can watch!
5. The Corpse Bride
I love the movie the Corpse Bride. Again, this is a family movie that you can watch to get in the mood for Halloween. It is a pretty creepy movie about a man who accidentally proposes to a corpse, who in turn tries to marry him. A bit of a strange plot, but a great movie nonetheless!
Casper is a cute movie about a friendly ghost and his three uncles that are haunting a house. A young girl befriends Casper and the story takes off from there! If you are looking for a light movie to watch for Halloween, this is a great choice!
Ghostbusters is great movie that I used to watch all the time when I was young. It is about three men who get rid of unwanted ghosts. This movie isn't that scary, so all ages can watch it!
Gremlins is a fairly creepy movie to watch around Halloween. When I was little I used to get nightmares from this movie, so it might be better suited for older kids, if you are looking for a family movie to watch!
Halloween is probably the scariest movie on this list. There are several movies in the Halloween series, all stemming around an escapee from a psych ward who tries to track down his sister and murders those who get in his way. Quite the scary movie if that's what you're looking for to get in the Halloween mood!
I love to watch all of these movies around Halloween time to get in the Halloween spirit! What other movies do you like to watch around Halloween time?
