Every October, we start gathering our favourite Halloween themed films. Some of them aren’t scary films. Here is my top ten films that I always re watch during the Halloween season.
You have to include the Disney classic hocus pocus which came out in 1993 its stars Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy who play three witches resurrected on Halloween night. They spend the night trying to become immortal by sucking the life out children. This is a Halloween MUST.
Halloween is a horror classic it stars Jamie Lee Curtis in her first role on the big screen.
It is about a psychotic murderer that stalks babysitters on Halloween night. What more do you need for a horror film on Halloween night??
This is just pure camp. It about a 13 year old girl that finds out she is a witch on Halloween night. She follows her grandmother into a mystical town called Halloweentown that is full of magical mythical creatures. It is a Disney TV movie so don’t expect crazy special effects or seriousness. If you want to rest your brain for an hour and a half check it out.
Scream is the classic teen horror from 1996. It is the film that spawn three sequels it stars Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and David Arquette. Scream follows the lives of teenagers in this small town of Woodsborough. The drama starts when a masked killer starts hunting them down to prove that horror can happen in real life too.
Nightmare on Elm Street
This is the classic 1984 film which introduced us to that child murderer Freddy Krueger. It had us all pondering whether we could stay awake if our dreams threatened our lives.
It is also the film that launched Johnny Depp’s career.
Another Neve Campbell film you have to check out over the Halloween season is The Craft. It is Mean Girls with a supernatural edge. It follows four girls who start experimenting with magic. All goes well at first but some of the girls get power hungry.
It is a fun movie and totally paved the wave for Charmed.
