Last Updated on November 8, 2019 by April

One of the best ways to get into the Halloween season is to read a scary novel.  However, think how much more you can get done by watching a scary movie, instead.  Even better: How many more scares can you get by watching a new scary movie every night?  If you love festive countdowns, or are a Halloween enthusiast, then this list of my top Halloween movies is for you.

October is just around the corner and you want to start it right. My favorite way to celebrate Halloween month is by watching a ton of Halloween movies. While that seems a bit excessive, if you try naming your favorite spooky flicks, you’ll realize there are a ton of classic and modern movies that deserve another watch!

I spent some time going over my favorites and ranked the top scary movies of all time, keeping in mind there should be a good balance between sub genres. If you aren’t a horror fan, then try this list of halloween movies for kids instead.  Before we start, to make things convenient, I created an October calendar out of these awesome Halloween movies.
