27 Halloween Movies You Should Watch If You're Feeling *Spooky*

From 'The Craft' to 'Hocus Pocus.'
IT movie, The Addams Family

With the summer now a distant memory and Christmas more than two months away, it means only one thing: It's spooky season! Uh-huh, Halloween is finally here. Usually we'd have a costume sorted and a list of parties to choose from, but instead we'll be at home getting stuck into lots of Halloween classics (we're not complaining). Here we've rounded up some of the best spooky movies to get you in the mood—from The Craft to Hocus Pocus.


  1.  The Addams Family

    Is it okay that I've got the hots for Lurch? Probably not. But the heart wants what it wants…

  2.  The Addams Family Values

    Easily as good as the the original. Some might even go as far as saying better. Decide for yourself—I'm staying out of it *cough* better *cough*.

  3. Hocus Pocus

    Hands down one of the greatest Halloween ever. We said it. Plus, how interesting to get an insight into Carrie Bradshaw: the awkward 17th Century goth years.

  4. Ghostbusters

    The scene with the ghost in the library might just be the worst thing that's ever happened to me.

  5. The Rocky Horror Picture Show

    If you're a fan of Tim Curry's legs (which you blatantly are), then this is the film for you.

  6. Casper

    Stretch, Stinkie, and Fatso are such little shits.

  7. The Nightmare Before Christmas

    Technically this is a Christmas film, as you can tell by the name. But it's full of ghosts, skeletons, and pumpkins, so we're having it for this list. You got a problem with that? Speak to Oogie Boogie.

  8. Practical Magic

    Curses don't come much worse than the one in this 1998 film: Every man one of the Owens sisters falls in love with dies. Bit of a bummer…

  9. Return To Oz

    One word: Wheelers.

  10. Corpse Bride

    Another Tim Burton triumph.

  11. The Witches

    If the first five minutes of this adaptation of the Roald Dahl book didn't scar you as a child, did you even have a childhood?

  12. Double Double Toil And Trouble

    Some might say this is the Olsen twins' greatest cinematic triumph. And they'd be right.

  13. The Craft

    "Light as a feather, stiff as a board."

  14. Labyrinth

    Don't pretend this film wasn't the stuff of terrifying nightmares.

  15. Toy Story Of Terror

    Like Toy Story. Only far more terrifying.

  16. Goosebumps

    Say cheese and die why don't you?

  17. The Haunted Mansion

    Nice knockers...

  18. Ernest Scared Stupid

    You'd think that after all this time, Ernest would know how to keep himself out of trouble...

  19. Hotel Transylvania

    Selena Gomez at her finest.

  20. ParaNorman

    Poor ol' Norman.

  21. Frankenweenie

    If there's one thing Tim Burton does well, it's Halloween.

  22. Coraline

    Why are buttons for eyes so creepy?

  23. Beetlejuice

    "Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejui…" Phew. That was a close one.

  24. Young Frankenstein

    Lol times a thousand.

  25. Gremlins

    Who ate food after midnight after watching this film? 

  26. Trick 'R Treat

    Four scary stories in one? Oh, go on then.

  27. IT

    Penny Wise out here totally ruining things for clowns since November 1990.
