Yeah, I know that a million people are writing this kind of post this month, but whatever. I really want to share my favorite Halloween movies, cause they’re great. Since I can be so basic sometimes, they probably won’t be a surprise to anyone. But here goes nothing. Make sure to leave your favorite in the comments. I’m still hoping to find new ones.
1. Hocus Pocus
If this isn’t your number one for the spooky season, something is truly wrong with you. It’s an amazing piece of art, with the greatest witch characters ever. The Sanderson sisters have been on my radar since I was a child. I’m not sure if my German friends really know it, but since I grew up in the US, I had the privilege of entering the world of Salem. And also getting to know Halloween in general. What a great holiday it is. And it’s just the best movie.
That little ghost is just absolutely adorable. And the mansion they live in gorgeous. I could probably never live there, cause I’m super paranoid and a fraidy cat, but I’d attend a Halloween party. I want a little ghost friend like that. Still not sure if I believe in them, but I’d like to. Not the disgusting ones, though.
3. The Nightmare Before Christmas
Well, there is still the debate about what type of movie it actually is: Christmas or Halloween, but I could never really watch it during the holiday season. And it just screams Halloween. Jack Skellington is one of my childhood heroes and he was on top of my list of characters I wanted to meet at Disneyland. I still have a Sally costume somewhere and someday, I will wear it. Nobody around here does Halloween parties though. And nobody I know would actually recognize her, anyway.
4. The Addams Family
I wouldn’t mind having a hand around the house, doing everything. It doesn’t even talk, which is amazing. I also wouldn’t mind looking like Morticia, she’s stunning. Although, Wednesday is just the best character ever. Her mean spirit is so incredibly comical. And I feel like all movie versions from over the years are great. Did you know there will be an animated version coming out in 2019? How exciting.
What makes me love this movie is just the thought of there being a place like Halloweentown. Imagine entire worlds for each holiday; it would be absolutely amazing. It’s just a super cute movie and well. everything made in the 90s is usually high on my list.
So these are only a few suggestions, but there are so much more. I can’t really watch actual horror movies, so cute Halloween movies are my jam. I should also re-watch Corpse Bride, Haunted Mansion, maybe the whole Munsters series or Beetlejuice. Sure, they can all be watched anytime of the year, but October just feels most perfect for it.
