My Favorite Halloween Movies


When I discovered Helene and Sarah's Halloween link-up, I already had a post in mind. Christmas is by far my favorite holiday, but Halloween comes in a close second. Here are some of my favorite flicks to watch this time of year. As you can see, I much prefer cheese over gore.









"Never jump into a pile of leaves with a wet sucker."

"We should have a plan. Angela Lansbury always had a plan."

"Witch! Witch! You're a bitch! Witch! Witch! You're a bitch!"
"You'd think after three hundred years they'd come up with a better rhyme!"

"You know, I've always wanted a child. And now I think I'll have one... on toast!

my friends and I first saw The Craft when we were in 6th grade and we watched it CONSTANTLY, "light as a feather, stiff as a board" became the coolest thing to do at sleepovers! Young Frankenstein has got to be my favorite though!

Hocus Pocus is definitely my fav, but I will watch ANY Halloween movie because I love them all!

Jenn @ A Country Girl's World said...

The Great Pumpkin and Hocus Pocus are the best!

Venus Trapped In Mars said...

Can I just say THANK YOU for including practical magic? Why does everyone forget this one? I think it is 8 times better than hocus pocus, plus it has my girl Sandy in it!

I adore Hocus Pocus! It's definitely a must see this time of year. And while I really do enjoy ALL of these movies (and many more cheesy Halloween movies), I also really LOVE all the scary movies such as Halloween. :)

Hocus Pocus is amazing, and I love all the Charlie Brown holiday movies! (stopping by from the link-up)

It's been ages since I watched Practical Magic... probably about 10 years, I need to remedy that.

I love Halloween, but my list of movies would be MUCH more SCURRY... ;) But I love a light hearted one.

My favorite kids Halloween Movie: The Worst Witch of Them All.. .ugh love it! Can't find it anywhere!

Cece said...

I loved the Craft. I love scary movies. The scarier the better. One of my favorite is the first remake of Texas Chainsaw Massacre that had Jessica Biehl in it.

I think I love Scream more than I probably should.

I will never forget the first time I saw Scream. I was at a sleep over with a bunch of girlfriends, and as soon as the movie ended the phone rang. We almost peed our pants. Turned out it was my ex/my friends brother who thought it would be funny. I prefer the cheese too. Practical magic and The craft are two of my fav, and of course Hocus Pocus. Its not Halloween without it.

I love Scream and The Craft! I also love The Nightmare Before Christmas, Addams Family Values, Monster Squad and Beetlejuice. I've never seen Hocus Pocus or Young Frankenstein. I think I saw Practical Magic at some point, but I don't remember it at all. I had the soundtrack though. Haha!
