Hello my lovelies! We’re in October, and that means we’ve got 3 weeks until Halloween! So this week I’ve decided to give you a list of halloween, spooky season movies and tv series that are perfect for watching in the lead up to Halloween. Plus, I’m making this list especially for the scaredy cats like me, so you won’t find any horror movies here!
So, grab yourself some snacks, your favourite cosy blanket and your pj’s, and let’s get into it!
1 . Halloweentown – I watched this for the first time the other day and it is great! It’s a easy feel good halloween movie.
2 . Hocus Pocus – I love this movie. It’s perfect for watching with the entire family and I can’t help but smile when I watch it!
3 . Beetlejuice – A little spookier but with a great dance number that I think we will all be singing for days to come!
4 . Shaun of the Dead – Not one for the little kids, but an absolute classic. And a forever favourite with my family.
5 . Casper – You can’t really go wrong with a friendly ghost!
6 . Wallace and Gromit: Curse of the Were-Rabbit – Perfect for the little kids, my niece and nephew love this one.
7 . Corpse Bride – Tim Burton doing what Tim Burton does best!
8 . The Nightmare Before Christmas – An all time favourite that can be rewatched over and over again and still not be bored with it. It’s the perfect bridge between halloween and christmas!
9 . Coraline – Freaky alternate universe with buttons for eyes.. spooky no?
10 . Ghostbusters – Whether you like the originals or the new version, ghostbusters is a must for halloween!
11 . Coco – Cute, good music and an easy watch; just don’t forget some tissues!
12 . Monster Inc – An oldie but a goodie. This one’s great to watch with the kids, I can’t believe some kids nowadays haven’t seen monsters inc before, I even had the game!
13 . The Craft – You must’ve seen this challenge going around on tiktok at the moment where you lift your friends up with your fingertips, well if you have, now you know where it’s from!
14 . The Addams Family – Funny, and an absolute classic. Tell me you’re not singing the song in your head right now?!
15 . The House with a Clock in its Walls – A recent addition, and who doesn’t love a movie with Jack Black?
16 . Goosebumps – This movie is great for when you’re not a massive fan of scary films but don’t mind being spooked a little.
17 . Buffy the Vampire Slayer – I started watching Buffy last week and now I’m into season 3 (all of it is on Amazon prime at the moment!), it’s super addictive with vampires, demons and high school drama!
18 . The Witches – Maybe skip this one if you’re freaked out by old school special effects, this one I have a love hate relationship with. It’s a classic, but the special effects creep me out a lot, but not so much I won’t watch it!
19 . Chilling Adventures of Sabrina – I remember watching Sabrina the Teenage Witch when I was little, so was so excited when Netflix brought out the chilling adventures of Sabrina a few years ago; and I was not disappointed!
20 . Stranger Things – I love stranger things, it’s just an amazing series and once you start watching it I guarantee you won’t stop! And even if you have seen it before, rewatching it never gets old!
21 . Dark Crystal – I have the movie (from what feels like a lifetime ago) on dvd, and Netflix has filmed a series of it! If you know the movie, give the series a go for some nostalgia!
22 . Edward Scissorhands – Johnny Depp with a million pairs of scissors for hands, who would’ve thought he’d make such a good barber?!
23 . E.T. – This film is perfect for halloween and christmas. I guarantee you’ll be able to find the on the telly on repeat over the next few months, and I’m not surprised because who doesn’t love e.t. and wish they had their own friend from another planet?
24 . The Goonies – An oldie but an a oh so goodie. This one is a must for any halloween movie marathon.
This list is by no means in order from best to least best, because what I put on the telly definitely depends on what sort of spook I’m in the mood for! But those are just a few of my favourite Halloweeny movies and tv shows that I think are perfect for watching around this time of year!
So, what are your favourite shows and movies to watch around this time of year? Let me know in the comments below!
Have a great weekend my loves, and I hope you’re enjoying this spooky season!
