10 Movies To Get You In The Spooky Mood

Forgotten Halloween classics to make you feel all the nostalgic memories.

10 Movies To Get You In The Spooky Mood

With Halloween in the air, it's time to discuss some of the best movies to watch while you pretend that the leaves are falling even though it is still 80 degrees outside in southern Mississippi. I think society knew what it was doing when it started producing cheesy Halloween movies. Any millennial or generation Z kid will tell you the nostalgia they feel when they sit down and watch the classics such as "Halloween Town" or "Twitches". Here are some notable Halloween movies that are guaranteed to get you into the spooky season.

"Practical Magic"


Sandra Bullock. Nicole Kidman. Need I say more? The set design alone makes me want to go into my greenhouse while making cactus shaped pancakes.

"Rocky Horror Picture Show"


Technically, it's a Science Fiction/Double Feature cult classic, not a halloween movie. I still consider it to be in the list, primarily because it is by far one of the most confusing movie/musicals out there.

"Hocus Pocus"


Before she was Carrie, Sarah Jessica Parker was luring children as one of the three Sanderson sisters.

"Beetle Juice"... and Literally Any Movie Directed By Tim Burton

Let's be real guys, Tim Burton is just a slightly less scary version of a Steven King novel. Which brings me to my next movie.

"The Exorcist"


In the 70s, this movie scared everyone. In 2018, it's hilarious. If you want to watch a horror film but you're too scared to watch anything too deep, watch this. It's great to make fun of at any point.

"Monster House"


When this movie came out, my dad told six year old me that the house across the street that moved was the Monster House. I haven't watched this movie since. 10/10.

"Don't Look Under the Bed"

Probably one of the most under-appreciated Disney Channel Original Movies, and no wonder because the thought of the boogie man being just an angsty forgotten imaginary friend is terrifying to a kid.

"Casper Meets Wendy"

Young Hillary Duff could break both of my knees and I would say sorry.

“It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!”

Grab your sweet baboon and some pumpkin pie to watch the World War I Flying Ace battle the Red Baron

“Chilling Adventure of Sabrina”

I have been waiting for this new generation of Sabrina the Teenage Witch since I heard about it. This Netflix Original Series will make its debut on October 26. Just in time for Halloween, witches.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
