Hello my lovelies! How’s everyone’s spooky season going? I have to admit, this month is absolutely flying by! And since Halloween is nearly upon us, and I’m too old to go out trick or treating and am a bit of an introvert, I decided this weeks post will be about what I’ll actually be doing on Halloween night. Watching all of my favourite Halloween/Spooky movies!
Side note: None of these movies that I’ll be listing will be horror movies.. I’m a huge scaredy cat and have probably only watched about 3 in my lifetime and am not a fan. So if you’re like me and don’t do scary Halloween movies, then this post is for you!
So, without further adieu, grab your popcorn and snacks and let’s get into it!
1 . Hocus Pocus.
Let’s be honest, it wouldn’t be a true Halloween movie marathon without Hocus Pocus in the line up would it? It’s a classic! Watch it with Disney Life or it’s £4.99 on Amazon Video!
2 . The Addams Family.
You can’t go wrong with the Addams Family, it’s such a funny film and how can you not love their weird quirky ways! Watch it for £3.99 on Amazon!
3 . Gremlins.
I don’t know if this is a Christmas or Halloween film or both, but it’s a classic and you can’t really go wrong with something most people relate to time spent with family. Watch it for £3.99 on Amazon!
4 . Beetlejuice.
I love Beetlejuice, it’s such a different Halloween film to the others, and it’s one I’ve grown up with so I can’t go without seeing this film near Halloween. And it’s now in the theatre and you can see it live! Watch it for £4.99 on Amazon!
5 . The Haunted Mansion.
Who doesn’t love Eddie Murphy?! He’s hilarious and if you’re not a fan of this film, just close your eyes and envision it’s donkey talking haha. Watch it on Disney Life or it’s £4.99 on Amazon.
6 . Shaun of the dead.
This one’s for families with older children, and just anyone who’s not into really family orientated films. This makes me laugh every time I watch it and it’s one of those films nearly everyone has seen and loves. Watch it on Netflix!
7 . E.T.
If you haven’t heard of E.T., where have you been all your life! If you love this family classic, then this will already be on your list for Halloween and Christmas movies. It’s on Amazon for £7.99 on Amazon or on Disney Life.
8 . Harry Potter.
If you know me, you know I’m a Harry Potter nut so of course the entire Harry Potter series had to be included on here. Watch with Amazon, or might already own them!
9 . Casper.
You won’t go through Halloween without seeing at least one person dressed up as a ghost, so of course Casper had to be included on here. Watch Casper on Netflix!
10 . Edward scissor hands.
After thinking about all of the films you only ever see on the TV around occasions like Christmas and Halloween, I realised that I haven’t seen Edward Scissor Hands for a while, and Tim Burton Films are always perfect for Halloween night. Watch on Disney Life or it’s £7.99 on amazon.
11 . Goosebumps.
I love Jack Black, so why not include Goosebumps on the list for spooky season! I found this film a bit creepy and spooky, so it’s a great choice for older children who are into films that are on the spookier side. Watch for free on Netflix!
12 . Wallace and Gromit – The Curse of the Were-Rabbit.
Wallace and Gromit are a family classic in my house, and my niece and nephew love this film so much so of course it had to be included. Watch on Netflix!
13 . Corpse bride.
Another Tim Burton classic. A man practices his wedding vows in a graveyard, and doesn’t realise he’s said them to an undead corpse bride! What could go wrong? Watch on Amazon prime!
14 . Ghostbusters.
Who you gonna call? (I’m not sorry haha). Whether it’s the new or classic versions of Ghostbusters, what’s more Halloweeny than people hunting ghosts? Bonus points if you watch the one with the Marshmallow man whilst eating marshmallows! Watch the originals on Netflix (the second one from the originals) and Amazon!
15 . Coraline.
Creepy yet cool. I’ve never seen a film like Coraline since it’s release, and if you bought his on DVD when it first came out, you may have the 3D version with glasses that I have! Watch with Sky cinema!
16 . Nightmare before Christmas (honerable mention)
I had to give an honourable mention to the Nightmare Before Christmas because I was definitely brought up watching this one around Halloween and then of course Christmas. The film starts the day after Halloween, so it seems fitting to watch this one at the end of the night! Watch on Disney Life, Sky cinema and it’s £4.99 on Amazon!
And those are my top 15 (16 if you include Nightmare Before Christmas) movies to watch if you’re staying in on Halloween. What’s your favourite Spooky Season film? Let me know in the comments!!
