26 Flicks for Your Halloween Fix

It’s September & the fall season is fast approaching. So, is it too early to talk Halloween?

Never.

This week I am keeping it short & sweet by sharing my top 26 favorite Halloween flicks.

Now, these are my actual favorites. Not just some generic list I swapped from the internet.

In fact, the 26 was not intentional. That’s just the number I ended with & there was not one I could do without.

I tried to avoid some overused films, but of course, there are classics that can’t be passed up.

So without further ado, grab your broomsticks & hold on tight, it’s Halloween time.

Kid Friendly

Harry Potter

Okay, okay, if you are counting all of the Harry Potters (which I definitely am) then there is a little more than 26 flicks on the list.

Better get your viewing party started soon!

Scooby-Doo

Too cute to leave off the list. Scooby-Doo (1&2) is a feel-good Halloween flick that even the scaredy-cats of the family can enjoy.

Coraline

Hocus Pocus

A film that needs no introduction.

The Goonies

Maybe not the first film you think of when you think Halloween. However, with a plot based around pirates tails & friends working together to conquer evil, The Goonies is an obvious pick for me.

Nightmare Before Christmas

Beetlejuice

Can you not help but dance & sing along to Day-O? I can hear this scene & I’m groovin.

The Corpse Bride

Monsters Inc.

It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown

Not So Kid Friendly

Scream

Not ashamed to admit that the Scream saga is one of my all-time favorites in general. I have even read the screen-play.

Four Rooms

While I could list many more Quentin Tarantino movies to go on the list, as I am obsessed with him, I decided to be selective to give space for other films.

From Dusk Till Dawn

The film where I put his face to the Tarantino name & bloomed a notable crush that has lasted a solid 14 years.

Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil

The Voices

Ryan Reynolds & Anna Kendrick in a horror thriller… need I say more?

Nightmare On Elm Street

No lie, Nightmare on Elm Street was my favorite movie at 4 years old. Granted, I don’t remember but my mother tells me so.

IT

Psycho

Probably a less popular opinion, but I prefer the Vince Vaughn version of this Alfred Hitchcock classic.

Sweeney Todd

The playlist is still on my phone.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show

Trick ‘R Treat

Interview with the Vampire

This one came to me & I couldn’t help but put it on the list. Probably one of the most overlooked movies of this generation. Undoubtedly a winner.

The Craft

Did we not all enjoy a game of light as a feather stiff as a board in our youth? or share a friendly witchery exchange, pretended to prick your fingers, & become a coven?

No, just my friends & I… awkward.

Halloween

Nothing says Halloween like Michael Myers chasing someone screaming for their life.

When a Stranger Calls

Ahhh.. these last two take me back to those preteen times. Not the most popular, but too nostalgic to keep off the list.

House of Wax

You better believe I will be watching all of these films on my list this season. I’ve already started with Harry Potter. What are your favorite Halloween movies?

Until next time my chickpeas,

Ali

If You Didn’t Get Enough
