My Must See List of Halloween Movies!

I love to watch Halloween movies any time of the year, but something about these makes them especially fun to watch in the Fall, when the weather outside starts feeling cooler. It was so hard to narrow my #FandomFriday list down to five, but here are some of my favorites! I don't really do horror movies, so these might be kind of lame for some of you, but oh well!

As always, thanks to Superspacechick and the NerdyGirlie for these Friday themes!

(in no particular order)

5. The Addams Family

I can't get enough of both the first one and the Addams Family Values sequel. Christina Ricci  will always be the most perfect Wednesday Addams for me.

4. Nightmare Before Christmas

I'm sure this one appears on most people's lists.. you just can't have Halloween without the Pumpkin King! I also used to love the one-off album soundtracks they used to put out of the NBC songs sung by well known bands/artists.. Do a youtube search for Amy Lee's rendition of "Sally's Song" or "Jack's Lament" by the All-American Rejects!


3. Coraline

Ok, so this isn't technically a "Halloween" themed movie, but the spooky-factor is definitely there. Not only that, it's also based on a children's book by one of my favorite authors, Neil Gaiman! I adore the character animation in this movie, and the music, and everything about it. Especially the involvement of dolls, of course!


2. Beetlejuice

 Oh, look - another Tim Burton movie! I can't help it! Like Christina Ricci, Wynona Ryder is one awesome chick, in my book. Her character (Lydia Deetz) in this movie is my style idol... In fact, the outfit I wore for the profile photo I use on this blog (and on my banner) was sort of inspired by her.. I adore her! Oh, and the Beetlejuice character is pretty cool, too! And the trippy visuals of the land of death! Such a classic movie.


1. Casper

This is the last repeat, I swear! It's another Christina Ricci movie! I don't know how many people actually remember this one, though? I was obsessed with it as a kid. I hadn't watched it in a long time until recently, and I still find myself loving the setting, (perfect haunted mansion by the sea in Maine, where they have perfect Autumns!) It always gets me in the mood for Halloween.

So that's my list! Some other movies that didn't make the cut: Hocus Pocus, Tim Burton's Dark Shadows and Sleepy Hollow, the Woman in Black, and I always love when my favorite t.v. shows do Halloween episodes, too. Pretty Little Liars isn't doing a Halloween one this year, but the ones they've done in the past are so good, with such great costumes! And I miss the cartoon "the Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy". That's always fun to watch in October!

Until next Friday!


  1. Great list. I've never seen the movie Coraline, but I've read the book and I loved it. I mean, you can't really go wrong with Neil Gaiman, can you?

    1. Nope, can't go wrong with Gaiman at all! Thanks, Kendall!

  2. The Addams family! Have you seen Adult Wednesday Adams on YouTube? Well worth a watch.

    1. I was just thinking the other day, of what Wednesday would be like as an adult, so yeah! I'l have to check that out! Thanks!

  3. I love all of these movies!

    Did you watch the Beetlejuice cartoon? I loved the spiderweb poncho Lydia wears in that

    1. I vaguely remember watching it as a kid.. I know I was a fan of Beetlejuice's stripey pants!

  4. Ahhh I almost included Coraline on mine because I have so much <3 for the book!


Thank you for taking the time to read and comment!
