Halloween Week | My Top 10 Halloween Movies

Happy Friday! I wanted to close out Halloween Week here at Adventures in Polishland with something a little bit different! Halloween is a great time to break out the holiday movies, and I thought I would share my favorites with you. Here are my Top 10 Halloween Movies!

10. Halloween


I don’t like scary movies, but Halloween is a classic! I remember watching it at my friend’s Halloween party in high school. This is perfect for those who can’t handle anything too frightening, but still want a scare.

9. The Addams Family 

They’re creepy and they’re cooky, and they’re hilarious! The Addams Family is a great movie to watch with your family on Halloween. I love Christina Ricci as Wednesday!

8. Young Frankenstein

Young Frankenstein is one of my all-time favorite movies, and is only number eight on this list because I want watch it all year long! If you need a laugh, this is the perfect film. My favorite scene is Puttin’ on the Ritz!

7. The Rocky Horror Picture Show

The Rocky Horror Picture Show is a cult classic. I love to do the Time Warp at least once per year! Keep in mind this movie is for older audiences, but it’s definitely a must for Halloween.

6. The Nightmare Before Christmas

Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas is such a fun movie with great music. Plus, it’s perfect to watch right through the Christmas season as well! My favorite song is What’s This?!

5. Beetlejuice

If you’re looking for something delightfully scary, Beetlejuice is a must! Who doesn’t love the Shake Senora scene?! This is another great family film.

4. It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

No holiday is complete without the Charlie Brown special. It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown is sweet and charming, and has some great moments. I hope you don’t get a rock trick-or-treating this year!

3. Garfield’s Halloween Adventure

Garfield’s Halloween Adventure is one of the most underrated Halloween movies. I just love this holiday special, including the music! Grab some candy, candy, candy while you watch this one!

2. The Halloween Tree

Another lesser-known film is The Halloween Tree, based of off a Ray Bradbury novel. My brother introduced this film to my family when I was younger, and it’s just a wonderful story replete with friendship and Halloween history!

1. Hocus Pocus

My number one favorite is none other than Hocus Pocus! I’ll never forget the first time I saw it at my friend’s sleepover party in second grade. It put a spell on me, and I’ve loved it ever since! I’ve seen Hocus Pocus so many times I can recite the whole movie, but it doesn’t stop me from watching it several times per year! I hope you love it as much as I do!

Make sure to let me know what your favorite Halloween Movies are in the comments! Have a fun and safe Halloween!
