The Top 20 Must-Watch Halloween Movies

Because it is that time of year.

The Top 20 Must-Watch Halloween Movies

It is that time of year! The leaves are falling, the days are getting chillier, pumpkin flavoring is added into every food and beverage, but most importantly -- Halloween movies! Mid-October welcomes a plethora of Halloween themed movies loved by everyone, whether they are Disney classics or old-fashioned horror. My love for Halloween movies continues to be incredibly strong as the years of my life progress, so I thought it would be perfect to compile a list of some of my favorite Halloween movies.

1. Halloweentown (and its three sequels)

These movies are and will always be timeless classics. The adventures of "Halloweentown" and all of its members will never not be on my TV come October.

2. Scream (and its sequels, too!)

The first may be the best one, in my opinion at least, but the "Scream" movies are a must-watch during the Halloween season.

3. The Nightmare Before Christmas

No list of Halloween movies would be complete without this Tim Burton masterpiece!

4. It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

Is it really a holiday if there isn't a Charlie Brown special about it?

5. The Addams Family

No Halloween is complete without a visit from this family to your television.

6. The Little Vampire

God, this is such an adorable movie and was one of my favorites as a kid. Who am I kidding though, I know I'll be watching probably right after I finish this list.

7. The Conjuring

Being a legitimate horror movie as compared to a Halloween themed one, "The Conjuring" still deserves to be on this list because it was made so well and has such a fantastic (and terrifying) story line.

8. Casper

Everyone could use a friendly ghost, right?

9. Beetlejuice

He's the ghost with the most!

10. Twitches

Go twitches, go twitches!

11. The Shining

This is one of my favorite movies in general. Kubrick took King's book and turned it into a film masterpiece.

12. Corpse Bride

Another Tim Burton great.

13. Ghostbusters

Who ya gonna call?

14. The Blair Witch Project

Viewers watch "recovered footage" from the three filmmakers, and the suspense is what'll get you. Side note, I haven't seen the sequel released last month, but should I?

15. Coraline

My college student self will proudly admit that I absolutely love this movie. Love.

16. Mom's Got a Date With a Vampire

Yet another Disney classic.

17. Hocus Pocus

This one has got to be one of the more popular Halloween movies. I do not think I am alone when I say I don't think I could count on my fingers how many times I have seen "Hocus Pocus."

18. The Grudge (all of them)

Not going to lie, these movies scare the crap out of me, and I don't scare easily.

19. The Goonies


20. The Haunted Mansion

C'mon, this movie has a Disney World ride out of it. Clearly it's a worth a watch.

There are many, many more movies that no doubt deserve to be on this list, but I like to think that this is a pretty solid list of Halloween movies. If you haven't seen any of them, don't admit to it, just go watch it right now.

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.
