I love Halloween so, so much. In fact, I start celebrating Halloween as soon as September 1st hits. The decorations fill my house, pumpkin treats fill the air, and spooky movies fill my television screen.

I was browsing the interwebs when I stumbled across the amazing article of 31 movies to watch for Halloween from Hello Nature Blog. And I thought to myself: I love movies. I love Halloween. Why don’t I make my own list?!

So here we are. A list of 31 Halloween movies to watch this most wonderful time of year, with a mix of movies for both adults and kids. Some spooky, some funny, and some downright shit-your-pants scary.

31 Movies You Should be Watching This Halloween

What it’s about: After three hundred years, three witch sisters are resurrected in Salem, Massachusetts on Halloween night, and it is up to two teenagers, a young girl, and an immortal cat to put an end to their reign of terror once and for all.

I can quote every line to Hocus Pocus, so that probably shows how much I’ve seen this movie. I watch it as least two times every Halloween season, as well as another time throughout the year.
