It’s September & the fall season is fast approaching. So, is it too early to talk Halloween?
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.
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!
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.
A film that needs no introduction.
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
Can you not help but dance & sing along to Day-O? I can hear this scene & I’m groovin.
The Corpse Bride
It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown
Not So Kid Friendly
Not ashamed to admit that the Scream saga is one of my all-time favorites in general. I have even read the screen-play.
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
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.
Probably a less popular opinion, but I prefer the Vince Vaughn version of this Alfred Hitchcock classic.
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.
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.
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,
If You Didn’t Get Enough
