Favourite Halloween Themed Movies!


I know this is a book blog but I'm branching out a little with this post and sharing my favourite Halloween movies because it's the season of things that go bump in the night and because I'm taking part in blogoween and have so far had only posted 3 out of 13 pledged posts... Huh. That means I've already failed my blogoween challenge but nevermind! 
I can still do better than 3!

Therefore, my favourite Halloween themed movies!

🎃

Hocus Pocus


Another one from my childhood and one my little dude watched for the first time last year... And got a little freaked out by, lol. I didn't remember it being that creepy but it is a little! It's also quirky, funny and so seasonal there is no better movie for watching on Halloween!

Beetlejuice


This one is good for watching anytime, I guess, but it just screams Halloween to me.
This is one of those movies that makes me laugh, smile and want to dance.

Casper


Nice, cutesy and family friendly. It's funny, atmospheric and hits you in the feels a little bit. 

Bram Stoker's Dracula


I love the look and feel of this movie.
 I remember being entranced by the posters when I was my son's age and when I was finally old enough to be allowed to watch the movie I fell in love. 
Gary Oldman was amazing, the intensity, the passion... Amazing. 

The Addams Family & The Addams Family Values


Quirky, weird and hilarious with a nice old school vibe, I've been watching both these movies since I was a kid and my kid will soon be watching them too!

Ghostbusters 1 & 2


I love them! I love both of them. I won't choose between them. They both have their own something something that makes me happy. I mean, what's not to love about a bunch of middle-aged dudes running around like goof-balls fighting ghosts with 1980's graphics?!
These movies have been with me for as long as I can remember (I wasn't even born when the first one released!) and they never get old.

🎃

These ones I haven't seen them yet. but have been recommended, therefore I will be watching them before this Halloween!

Halloweentown


Last year, I asked what people's favourite Halloween movies were and this one came up a lot. I'd never even heard of it but I took note and this year I'm going to give it a go!

Goosebumps


Everyone has read at least one of RL Stine's Goosebumps books, right?
I don't like the scaries or the creepies much but even I've read a load of the Goosebumps books. However, I've never seen the movie. 
So, I'm going to watch the movie.

The Haunted Mansion


I've heard this one is so awful that it's good so I'll defo be trying to watch this one before Halloween. 
If nothing else, I love the Haunted Mansion ride at the Magic Kingdom so it'll remind me of lovely holidays, lol.

    1. It's awesome. We watched it on Halloween while diving into a sugar coma and it never fails to make me laugh.

  2. Great choices here. I had a Halloween movie night the other week and we watched the first two Halloweentown films. The first is the best though. :)

    1. Due to moving and internet shennanigans we never got around to watching it! Again. :( It's staying on my "must watch" list though. I will see it!

  3. Hocus Pocus is a favorite in our house. And I love the Adams family. I used to watch the show in re-runs. The movies are a lot of fun too. :-)

    1. Hocus Pocus has become a Halloween movie legend. I remember when it came out... I was my son's age and it just hasn't got old!

  4. IT'S OKAY NICOLE. I think some of us hosts have been failing as well... AKA me. I clock in at about um... 7 posts? I have no clue because I don't want to count, haha. If I don't count them all, I won't notice how much I didn't do this month.

    These are some great choices - I haven't watched any of them, unfortunately, but whenever someone mentions Halloween movies, I instantly think of some of the movies you listed.

    1. Glad to know I'm not the only one who couldn't keep up with the posts! Maybe Blogmas will be easier? lol
