Top Ten Movies to Watch For Halloween

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

BEETLEJUICE: I vaguely remember this one being fun / eerie. Definitely need to rewatch it!

CASPER: I love Casper, he's just adorable. It's been years since I've seen this.

HALLOWEENTOWN: Loved this as a kid! So fun and creative.

MEAN GIRLS: OKAY, it's not really a Halloween movie, but there is a scene set during Halloween so it counts. Plus, this movie is never stops being amusing, and sometimes, you just need a fun movie in between the scary ones.

SLEEPY HOLLOW: Eerie, people's heads get chopped off, magic, Johnny Depp...it's perfect for Halloween.

SCREAM: I mean, obviously.

URBAN LEGEND: So, this is not a great movie, but I thought it was an interesting horror movie revolving around urban legends.

THE CONJURING: Very eerie and well done. The clapping game always gives me chills.

HALLOWEEN (Rob Zombie version): Creepy. Creepy. Creepy. That is all.

BONUS! PRACTICAL MAGIC: Thanks to Juju's recommendation, I decided to check out Practical Magic and it is wonderful. Witches, romance, family, and more! Absolutely perfect for Halloween.

What are some of your favorite movies to watch on Halloween? Let me know in the comments! And leave me a link to your top ten, if you did one :)

Edited 7:27AM, because I didn't want to leave out Practical Magic!


  1. I love this list! I completely agree with you about Hocus Pocus (the best!), Casper and Beetlejuice. I feel like those are classics now. :) The Conjuring sounds way too scary for me..haha. I do like Scream and Mean Girls is just an awesome movie all-around. Happy Halloween!

  2. My sister and I loved Scream and Urban Legend when we were teens. I wouldn't be able to watch that kind of movie now! I liked Hocus Pocus and Casper too. I was thinking of watching Hocus Pocus again just the other day so I might do that on Halloween. It's been years! Nice list!

  3. I love Halloweentown and Hocus Pocus.

  4. I loved the first 2 Scream Movies, and The Conjuring is one of the scariest movies ever to me! Great list. I went with the character costume theme this week.
    Check out my Top 10.

  5. I'm surprised that I haven't seen The Craft on any blogs yet!

    And I know what you mean about Mean Girls, I love the Halloween scene! "What are you supposed to be?" "A mouse, duh!"

  8. YAY for bunch of amazing movies :D Sigh. The Conjuring. I need to re-watch it soonish, I think. A bunch of these I have yet to watch, though ;p but you make me want to watch them all. Scary movies are awesome :D Well, they used to be awesome, these days I try not to watch too many of them :p <3

  9. For the past two years I have not been able to watch the Halloweentown movies because its become a tradition. Near Halloween itself, I watch Hocus Pocus.

  10. I love Practical Magic, Casper, Hocus Pocus and Halloweentown (I pretend that the third movie doesn't exist lol). I haven't seen any of the others...and I'm too much of a wimp to see The Conjuring--just the previews of that clapping game had me on edge!!!

  11. Some of my favourite movies right here!! I hope to indulge in some of these this weekend.

  12. I've never watched Mean Girls but I've heard so much about it I think it has to go on my list. I love Hocus Pocus (I watch it every year) and my husband is a huge fan of Practical Magic.

  13. I love Halloween Town, I watch it every year around Halloween!
