A Definitive Ranking Of The Best Disney Halloween Movies That You MUST Watch This October

It's October, which means snuggling up with a blanket and the best Halloween movies.


You've finally made it to October! October is a month full of fun and adventures to do now that we've officially entered fall. While going to the pumpkin patch, decorating for Halloween, and studying for midterms all sound like great adventures, cozying up with the first hot chocolate of the year and a warm blanket is a perfect way to spend a rainy day in October. And what better way to get in the Halloween spirit than a good Halloween movie. Here, you will find a ranking of the nine best Halloween movies you will watch this Halloween season.

9. "Return to Halloweentown"

Now, unfortunately, there was a recast from the original "Halloweentown" movies, but regardless, "Return to Halloweentown" will always be the perfect wrap up to the series as we get to see Marnie and her friends starting their lives away from home.

8. "Phantom of the Megaplex"

If you've ever been to an old run down the theater, you'll relate to the kids in this movie trying to discover who is recking havoc at the movie theater. SPOILER a phantom of someone that was once trapped in the theater!

7. "Halloweentown High"

In "Halloweentown High," you'll get to enjoy the adventures of Marnie and her friends navigating everyone's favorite place, high school! There will be plenty of twists and turns along the way to keep you on the edge of your seat throughout the whole movie.

6. "Twitches Too"

The Twitches return for this sequel to the original movie. In "Twitches Too," you'll get to see the twins return in their college years still battling the darkness and still trying to save the world. If you loved the first movie, you'll surely love being reunited with these twin witches.

5. "Hocus Pocus"

If you haven't heard of "Hocus Pocus", you're really missing out. "Hocus Pocus" is a Halloween classic that not only features three witty witches, but you also get to enjoy an immortal cat making appearances every once in a while.

4. "The Nightmare Before Christmas"

"The Nightmare Before Christmas" is the perfect mix of the two best holidays! Check out this movie as October begins to wind down to get you in the Christmas spirit while still holding onto the last bits of spookiness that October has to offer.

3. "Haunted Mansion"

Ghosts, secrets, and mysterious characters all come together to form this Halloween movie. You won't be disappointed watching Eddie Murphy and his film family explore in the "Haunted Mansion."

2. "Twitches"

Tia and Tamera unite their newly discovered powers to escape the darkness and save their mother. This Halloween great has the magic and laughs that will put you in the spooky spirit.

1. "Halloweentown"

A Halloween classic! This movie combines all of the greatest parts of Halloween. It has spells, witches, monsters, skeletons, and of course a giant pumpkin. There's nothing else that even competes for the number one spot.

The Ultimate 'Avengers: Endgame' Drinking Game That Will Have You Saying ‘ANOTHER!’

A little liquid courage may come in handy when you're saving the universe.


After 10 years, 18 movies, and 20 Stan Lee cameos, the Marvel franchise is giving fans answers to all their questions (or at least we hope) in "Avengers: Endgame." After "Infinity War" left fans speechless, in tears, and shocked to see Thanos' "snap" take away characters they'd grown to love, only a few noble heroes remain. All may seem lost, but if we've learned anything about the Avengers, we know that nothing is truly over until Stan Lee says so. That being said, liquid courage is practically a requirement to get through "Avengers: Endgame" in one piece.

What you'll need:

A Hulk-sized drink of your choice, refills, and the film itself.

The rules:

Take a sip, take a shot, or just start chugging as the film dictates. Feel free to add in your own universe-saving rules to help your liver make it to the final credits. Please drink responsibly.

'Captain Marvel' May Have Premiered Just 6 Weeks Before 'End Game,' But Marvel's Timing Is Always Perfect

There's been a lot of talk about the timeframe in which this film was released.


After seeing "Captain Marvel" twice since its release, the film has grown on me. The naysayers do not like her for a couple of reasons: her "random, luck of the draw" power, perfections, and the story's release after 10 years of Marvel's productions. However, you can bring some perspective to this and say, Tony Stark, also known as Iron Man, had a selfish rise to power by saving himself. He has this "perfect" suit, but technically no superhuman abilities, and his release was three years before Captain Americas!

When it comes to superhero films and production schematics, everyone has an opinion. It is the nature of the audience and passion for all the characters they grew to love. Marvel had a plan in this storyline all along. Marvel has sewn a fabric, which DC (sorry!), is still trying to develop for their bigger picture. So, back to the main question. Captain Marvel, too late or just in time?

Buzzfeed brings us a fun, dissecting analysis of a recent "full scene" from Endgame, where Carol Danvers, also known as Captain Marvel, explains her absence over the last 20 years. "There are a lot of other planets in the universe, and unfortunately, they didn't have you guys." Beyond this quotation, loop in a small thought as to how her absence proves a surprise factor for what Thanos may have in store for himself in this film. While Ronan witnessed a "powerful weapon" on Earth in Captain Marvel, Thanos never made the trek to Earth. He sent Loki to gauge "the enemy," and what he could be up against.

For all the devoted comic book readers out there, many of you probably disagree with me. My perspective does not drive from the original writings. My perspective and thought process derives from the films and faith in the Marvel creation to this very point in time.

Captain Marvel's timing is just right. Kevin Feige, the producer and President of Marvel Studios, provides us with two explanations for why Nick Fury waited until "Infinity War" to contact her. One, Fury likely considered all events up to this "Infinity War" as "non-emergency." Captain Marvel DID ask him to only contact her for emergencies. "Infinity War" is an event on an "unprecedented" level. Two, Feige goes a bit "Marvel political" on us, saying "…how do you know he never hit it? How do we know he never pushed [the pager] before? We've never seen him push it before. That doesn't mean he never did." I am going to pretend that part was never of any debate.

Carol Danvers, Captain Marvel, comes to us at the pinnacle moment of the Marvel timeline. We have waited 10 years for the culmination of this storyline. Her timing is perfect because "we're in the end game now."
