As we approach Halloween, the best thing about the season (aside from pumpkin spice) is the movies. Every year there are a number of specials I’m sure most of us look forward to watching. Some being classic scary movies and others good old favourites we grew up watching as kids. There are five classics you’ve got to watch this Halloween; hopefully a couple are on your favourites list.
No Halloween since most of us were kids has been complete without the Halloweentown series. How cool would it have been to find out our favourite spooky species were living in a world just like we do. Or find you were a witch with magical powers. There are four movies in the series, so grab a couple lattes and snacks for a chilly day movie marathon.
2) The Nightmare Before Christmas
This Disney classic stars Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King of Halloween Town. Although the movie also has a mix of Christmas in it, the scary additions throughout the movie make it perfectly suitable for any spooky movie night. After all, you can never go wrong with Disney.
3) Friday the 13th
A classic scary movie, this series has been around for decades and chances are your parents loved it too. If you’re looking to have a little more gore and good old horror, there are a number of movies in the series following the main character Jason.
4) The Orphan
If you’re looking to truly give yourself a scare, the Orphan will do it. The plot build up is great for anyone who likes that “anxiously waiting for something to happen” feeling. Once the movie hits its peak, you’ll definitely be on the edge of your seat.
Another classic that we grew up watching, the Twitches series is always a Halloween favourite. Two girls who find out they’re long lost twins- and witches! Nothing beats a few magic spells and spooky villains, especially at Halloween. So grab your best friend and some candy and relive your childhood for the evening.
