{halloween week} Must-Watch Halloween Movies

Let's talk Halloween movies, here are my favorites!  I've been watching them since the end of September, gotta get in all my viewing before Halloween is over. Well, the Halloween focused ones, some of these aren't exactly Halloween themed, but they bring the spirit. I will probably have watched each of these at least three times this month and countless times in my movie watching history.   What movies are on your list?

1. Casper: Do I need to explain? Casper shows that kids movies back in the day are way better than junk they make now.

2. Hocus Pocus: I could watch this all day every day.  Perfection. (although I could watch most of these movies a million times and never get bored, but that shouldn't take away from it's awesomeness!)

3. Beetlejuice: Ghosts, a goth Winona Ryder, what else do you need?

4. Teen Witch: An 80s classic (starring Blake Lively's older step sister), I wanted to be Louise when i was younger and would get so excited whenever this came on TV. Luckily I own it now so I don't have to worry about that.

5. Halloweentown Series (except the third...I don't like that one): They are based on Halloween and a girl who finds out she's a witch, so obviously you need to watch them.

6. Harry Potter Series: no explanation needed.

7. Clue: This is a hilarious movie based on the board game.  Trust me, you'll thank me later.

8. The Black Cauldron: One of the scariest Disney movies I've seen.  The Horned King would give anyone nightmares! I love old Disney, especially the ones hardly no one knows about, like this gem.

9. The Last Unicorn: This was one of my favorite movies when I was little and remains so today.  There are so many amusing things I never noticed when I was younger; you'll see what I mean when you watch.

10. Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory: It's about candy, so obviously you have to watch it on Halloween! Not the creepy Johnny Depp version though....

Bonus: Have a Merlin marathon! Love this show so much. If you're a fan of the King Arthur legend you'll love this show, it just finished a 5 series run and shows Merlin and Arthur as young boys.

UPDATE: Lydia pointed out that I forgot Practical Magic...oops! Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman as witches, with some scariness thrown in. This movie is about as scary as I go (there's one scene that totally freaks me out still)

  4. I've seen a few of these! I just watched the original 'Carrie' for the first time this past weekend, scared the bejesus out of me.

  5. Darn, I haven't seen a majority of these! But Hocus Pocus is my Halloween must :)

  6. Oh gosh, I want to go watch the first three like right now! Another one that my boyfriend keeps telling me is pretty decent is Witches of Eastwick... and I also need to finally see Practical Magic. Guess I better hop to it!

  7. I know the first 2 by heart and would love to see practical magic again!!


  8. I bow to your incredible knowledge of movies I should have watched when I was a kid but mostly didn't, as always! I've seen Clue about a gazillion times though. I actually don't like it... or maybe I was just so addicted to the board game that I couldn't forgive them that the characters weren't as I imagined, hehe. But The Black Cauldron sounds great.. I read the book years ago!

  9. Ok, so I've seen one of these movies, Willy Wonka! I love that movie, but no matter how old I get those dwarfs still freak me out!

    Now, I'm curious about some of these other movies, I might have to add them to my movie list...

  10. Teen witch ! i have not seen that movie in a while..
