Let’s be honest, as soon as October (or September, we said honest!) rolls in, the season-exclusive spooky vibes start pitching up. Wonder how we get from the cosy autumn mood to the eerie Halloween-y feels.

Horror movies to Halloween are like music is to Christmas and chocolates to Valentine’s Day – which means that you simply can’t feel the creepy spooky of Halloween without the classic Halloween movies that go along with it!

So, break out the stash of extra candy, turn off all the lights, lock every last door, and settle in for the best of the best Halloween movies. Here’s 10 of our favourite picks to get you started!

Scream (1996)

This clever-yet-scary slasher franchise/black comedy is now up to five movies, but the first installment from 1996 is a Halloween classic – it stars a variety of big names, from Courtney Cox to Drew Barrymore, and continues to be a fan-favorite year after year.

It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (1966)

It may seem a bit silly, but watching Great Pumpkin is tradition for quite a few people. This is a true classic Halloween movie the whole family can enjoy on the movies night. The animation might even make you nostalgic for childhood memories of trick-or-treating.

Ready or Not (2019)

Just another of those horror movies where you are carving up rich people, starring Samara Weaving, is the perfect fit for the creepy spooky season.

 Rosemary’s Baby (1968)

Here’s a movie full of strange food cravings and hormonal crazies! But in a different way than Halloween, yet one to go hand-in-hand with the season!

Zombieland (2009)

Starring our favourite Jesse Eisenberg, this is the perfect Halloween pick for you if you are into vampire, or zombie horror movies. Moreover, it’s family friendly so you can all sit together and stream it during a regular family dinner (or not, the sight of zombies might not be very appetising.)

Midsommar (2019)

Don’t let the flowers and the pretty colours fool you, this movie is absolutely terrifying. When a couple decides to go to a pagan festival in Sweden, things don’t end up going exactly as planned as the festival’s true colors come to life.

Harry Potter

It’s been argued that Harry Potter movies are classic Christmas, instead of the Halloween movies – but we believe that it’s safe to call them Halloween flicks. Afterall, they do feature a fair amount of spooky and witches and wizards, right?

The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)

If only nightmares were this adorable! Guess what? It’s a musical! Disney definitely has added some spooky ones to the mix!

Hocus Pocus (1993)

This is one of those true classic Halloween exclusive movies. It’s about a villainous comedic trio of Salem, Massachusetts witches, that are resurrected just in time for Halloween. Plus, a new Hocus Pocus movie just came out, so it’s the perfect time to bring back the older one!

Mean Girls (2004)

Now, Mean Girls isn’t exactly a horror movie, but it does feature one of the most iconic Halloween scenes in recent memory, earning it a prime spot on this list.

If you are not a fan of horror, you can still appreciate a good Halloween movie – just watch a regular cosy autumn one!
