Hello there! So, as some of you may know, I like my films quite a lot! I also really love Halloween so, when it gets to Halloween every year there are certain films that I just have to watch! These are a mix of classics from when I was a kid and scary films that I love as an adult (I love horror films!) so here goes..
10. Double Double Toil and Trouble
Who didn’t love Mary-Kate and Ashley as a child? I haven’t watched this film since we got rid of our video player, so quite a few years ago now, but it always screams Halloween to me and it was my favourite as a child, so it had to make number 10 on the list!
9.The Addams Family
Another childhood classic! This film makes me so happy and it just really puts me in the Halloween mood!
8. The Conjuring
I actually watched this on Halloween a few years ago and infamously stopped answering the door to trick-or-treaters after that, it was so scary!!
7. The Purge
If this was a list of my favourite horror films, the Purge would be a lot higher up! However, whilst it is a horror, the purge isn’t really Halloweeny so I’ve left it at number 7!
Ahhhh wasn’t Disney channel just the best around Halloween? I loved twitches as a kid, and definitely wouldn’t mind watching it again now!
5. Friday the 13th
I used to watch this every year near Halloween with my family (not that it’s really a family film!) and I just love it! I also love that it reminds me of sitting and watching it as a family.
4. Scary Movie
Now, I know a lot of people don’t like the parody that is Scary Movie, but I’ve always really liked it! Anyway, it’s good for those who want to watch a comedic, light hearted film that isn’t aimed at children on Halloween!
3. Edward Scissorhands
Can this be defined as a Halloween film? Probably not, but I don’t care! I love this film neverthless and it’s spooky so why not!
2. The Nightmare Before Christmas
(And this IS a Halloween film because Tim Burton said so!)
Singing, dancing, animation, a hint of Christmas and no scare factor, The Nightmare Before Christmas is the perfect Halloween film to watch as a family, or throughout the day before you get scared!
I would watch this (and the rest of the franchise) over and over and over again throughout September and October, I just loved it so much! And it is still my favourite Halloween film of all, even as an adult!
