It’s finally October and that means pumpkin-flavored treats, cozy fall sweaters, and of course, Halloween! It also means the return of the Halloween movie: the sometimes scary, but more often than not, light-hearted flick.
Halloween movies capture the nature of the holiday that kids love so much and adults are always nostalgic for. Horror movies only serve to scare us senseless, but that’s just not what the much-loved holiday is about. Halloween is the one night when it is completely acceptable, even encouraged, for children, teens and adults alike to play dress up and fill their pillowcases with fun-sized candies.
And even if vying for a mini Twix bar dressed up as a Power Ranger doesn’t sound like your cup of tea, practically nobody can deny they don’t love settling in with a bowl of popcorn and a Halloween classic come October 31.
The following ten films are perfect for a night of devouring trick-or-treat treasures and sipping on hot chocolate and warm apple cider. Each and every one of the movies perfectly embodies the outrageous, spooky, exciting and absurd that makes Halloween, Halloween.
