Check out these eleven Halloween movies for a good scare


  1. Goosebumps with Jack Black

The reason this movie made the top of my list is because not only does Jack Black play RL Stein, but I can relate to the character he plays. There is a quote that RL Stein says that I can relate to somewhat: “The other kids threw rocks at my window and called me names, so I created my own friends and they became real to me.” While kids didn’t throw rocks at my window, I was bullied pretty badly and sometimes still am bullied, but not to the extent that I was when I was younger, but most of all, this movie is funny, somewhat scary and even has three love stories in it. 

  1. 10. Dracula

Yes, this movie is not in color because it was made in 1931, but it still one of the best Halloween movies out there. It can seem boring at first, but once you give it a chance to pick up, it will. For those of you who like the Twilight book series by Stephanie Meyer, you will like this one because it has vampires. Though Dracula doesn’t sparkle in the sun or make life-long partners like Edward does with Bella, he does drink human blood, hypnotize people and has a love interest that he turns into a vampire, but the real character in this movie is his hypnotized servant named Renfeld because he laughs really funny and always escapes from the mental asylum and eats bugs.

  1. Casper

This movie is about a friendly child ghost who has unfinished business in the world of the living, so he stays in his house to haunt it, and he has trouble making friends because he is no longer of the living. Then one day a girl named Kat and her father move into the house, and Casper falls in love with her, but will she return his feelings? Find out in this film that features a cute guy. 

  1. Halloween Town 

When I was growing up, this movie was my all-time favorite Halloween movie to watch on Disney Channel because I love Halloween with a passion. This movie is about a 13-year-old girl named Marnie and her siblings who come from a family of witches that came from Halloweentown. Their grandma lives there and can only travel to the mortal side on Halloween night because the portals from both worlds are opened. In the movie, trouble arrives in Halloweentown, and Marnie and her siblings have to find a way to stop it. I hope you love this movie as much as I did and still do.

  1. Scooby-Doo and The Goblin King

Yeah, I know. Scooby-Doo is what you call childish, but this one is all about Halloween and takes place on Halloween night, so watch it then. In the movie, there is something called the Halloweenworld where all the creatures of Halloween live. When an evil magician named Krutski steals the magic of a fairy princess and the scepter of the goblin king, Scooby and Shaggy must find a way to restore the order between the real world and the supernatural.  It sounds lame, but please give it a chance. 

  1. Coco 

This movie is not Halloween, but El Dia De Los Muertos is similar. During this holiday, the family who has died can come back until sunrise to visit family, but the living can’t see them. Miguel wants to be a musician like his idol Ernesto De Le Cruz despite his family’s age-old no music rule, and in order to achieve this dream, he ends up in the land of the dead where he meets Hector, and together they find the truth. This movie made this list because it reminds us how important family really is, especially during COVID.


  1. Night Of The Living Dead

Perfect for the time of COVID, this old black and white zombie movie from 1968 is a classic scary movie. When two siblings, Johnny and Barbara, go to visit their father’s grave, a man comes after them. Later on, you find out that the odd man was a zombie, so Barabra ends up in an old farmhouse locked in with others, and this becomes a story of survival during a zombie apocalypse, so, yes, it’s actually scary.

Night Of The Living Dead

  1. The Blob

This movie featuring Steve Mcqueen is a science fiction classic. Though cheesy, it will keep you guessing and can be scary at times. Steve and Jane must find a way to protect their town from an evil alien blob that engulfs and eats everything it touches, similar to Night Of The Living Dead in the sense of surviving. I enjoyed this movie because there were some parts that reminded me of WWII, and there are some funny parts. 

The Blob

  1. Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte

Though it is in black and white, this movie is pretty scary due to a murder mystery and trying to drive a woman named Charlotte insane. The theme song, which is the title of the movie, is part of what makes this movie so scary. It will keep you up at night and guessing until the very end. 

 Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte

  1. The Addams Family Values

This movie is one of my all-time favorite Halloween movies. It is rated PG-13 due to some language and dark humor, and it will make you laugh pretty hard. In this movie, the Addams family adds a new edition to the family, and the siblings Wednesday and Pugsley do everything they can to try and get rid of their new sibling but fail. When the new nanny Debbie Jelinsky comes, she proves to be something else, but as for the rest of it, you’ll just have to watch it and see what happens.

  1. Beetlejuice 

If you like The Nightmare Before Christmas or Alice In Wonderland with Johnny Depp, then you’ll like Beetlejuice because it’s a Tim Burton film, so expect it to be rather odd and quirky. When the couple Adam and Barbra die, they live in their house as ghosts, and the Dietz family moves in and redecorates everything except the attic. Lydia, the daughter who is goth and likes horror movies, discovers the ghostly couple, and she is the only one who can see them.
