Let's start with my personal fave, shall we?
In the fall of 2008, Hallmark aired a movie called "The Good Witch" for part of their Halloween special. As we're so used to watching Halloween movies about BAD witches, this Halloween movie is about a good witch.
The story is set in Middleton, USA but the movie was filmed in Canada.
It's about a woman named Cassandra Nightingale, known as Cassie, who moves to a new town to start a new life. She's very different. She bought an old abandoned house and reopened a vacant shop that became her own store. Her store sells candles, essential oils, and other things.
Local police chief Jake Russell and his family are immediately drawn to Cassie and her kindness and helpfulness and care for people.
But the wife of the Mayor of Middleton does not like her and the change she is bringing. She thinks she is strange.
Jake Russell and his family along with Cassie do everything they can to keep the mayor's wife from protesting.
There are four other movies in this series after the first one. They follow Cassie and the family as they get older, and the movies are feel-good festive movies, so go ahead and watch them!
Aside from my personal fave, check out these other great flicks to make this Halloween season the one to beat.
This 1985 cult classic, based on the eponymous board game, is funny, campy and has enough double entendres to get your Netflix and Chill session started off right.
A telekinetic tire rolls around killing people. Stylish and weirdly unsettling, this one will make you give that spare tire a second glance.
3. A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night
An Iranian Vampire Western. If that alone won't get you enough hipster movie cred, it's also in black and white with subtitles. It's a romance too, so you know, that helps.
4. Let The Right One In
Another vampire romance, this time with kids. Bonus points if you watch the original Swedish version.
Hope you enjoy!
