It’s that time of year again! Halloween is the only holiday guaranteed to bring out the inner scared child in all adults. 

Halloween has been celebrated for over 1000 years. Halloween traditions include all kinds of activities from trick-or-treating and pumpkin carving, to costume parties and bobbing for apples, among many others.

Do you have any plans this year?  If not, we’ve prepared 5 of the best Halloween movies to watch and get you in the spooky mood.

1. Halloween (1978)

Arguably one of the best Halloween series, Halloween follows Michael Myers who returns to his hometown after escaping a mental asylum, looking for his next victims. 

Why not binge the series this year, not forgetting the latest instalment set 40 years after the original.

2. Hocus Pocus (1993)

Hocus Pocus is a more family friendly film for this holiday. It follows teenagers Max and Dani as they explore an abandoned house in Salem and accidentally free a coven of evil witches. It’s the perfect spooky comedy for Halloween!

3. The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)

Is it a Christmas film? Or a Halloween film? Regardless, The Nightmare Before Christmas is a Tim Burton classic. It’s an animation which follows the Pumpkin King on his journey of overthrowing Santa Claus and claiming Christmas. The film’s catchy soundtrack makes it another great family classic to watch!

4. Casper (1995)

Casper is every family’s favourite ghost! This classic focuses on the relationship of an ordinary girl and one extraordinary ghost – Casper and his troublesome ghost family who haunt a mansion. 

5. IT (2017) 

This is the box-office-breaking remake of the classic horror by Stephen King, IT. The plot is the same as the original 1990 film, but somehow even scarier following the seven children of Derry as they battle the evil clown, Pennywise.
