Halloween is just a couple weeks away, so get in the spooky mood by watching some seasonal movies.
All the major streaming platforms have a plethora of new and classic Halloween films, so there’s something for everyone — no matter how little or how much you like to be scared. Here’s just a small selection of what they have to offer.
Hubie Halloween (2020)
Hubie Dubois (Adam Sandler) attempts to defend his town, Salem, from an escaped criminal and from monsters when the townsfolk and the police dismiss his concerns that they’re in danger on Halloween.
Based on a French Gothic thriller novel, this is the story of a young bride struggling against the shadow of her new husband’s first wife, while discovering the past of the husband she barely knows. Available on October 21.
The Witches (1990)
Who will do it better, Angelica Huston in this 1990 version or Anne Hathaway in 2020?
Pan's Labyrinth (2006)
Indulge your imagination with Guillermo del Torro’s classic film.
Parasite won Best Picture at the 2020 Oscars (feels forever ago, doesn’t it?). If you didn’t watch it leading up to the Oscars, here’s your chance to catch up.
The Addams Family (1991)
Revisit this iconic family for some family-friendly freaky fun.
A Quiet Place (2018)
Which is scarier — fighting monsters or giving birth in a bathtub by yourself?
#1 rule of Zombieland is cardio. So run, don’t walk, to the sofa to watch this comedy zombie flick. (Don’t forget to bring the twinkies!)
I think every kid knew the line, “It’s alive, it’s alive!” before even seeing the movie. I also totally thought Boris Karloff’s face really looked like that.
The guy who inspired little plastic vampire teeth. Thanks, dude, but I’d rather get chocolate when go I trick-or-treating.
Hocus Pocus (1993)
You just can’t get rid of the Sanderson sisters that easily. They’re back and ready to scream, I mean stream, right in your living room.
The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)
Is it a Halloween movie or a Christmas movie?
While technically about the Day of the Dead, ghosts are ghosts, and Halloween is the ghostly season.
The Shining (1980)
Jack is back (on Amazon Prime)!
The Blair Witch Project (1999)
Who’s up for a camping trip after this?
The Conjuring (2013)
Did you know that the characters Ed and Lorraine Warren are based on real-life paranormal investigators of the same names?
