Top Ten Tuesday: Movies to get you in the Halloween spirit

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the Broke and the Bookish. Today’s theme was:

Top Ten Books/Movies To Read Or Watch To Get In The Halloween Spirit OR Top Ten Characters Who I Would Totally Want To Be For Halloween

I’m going to do movies because I’ve already planned a Halloween Reads post for Friday. So here are ten of the movies you can watch to get you in the Halloween spirit. I’m not a huge fan of scary movies, so most of my choices won’t be scary. They also might not necessarily be Halloween-themed movies, but whatever.

Hocus PocusHocus Pocus

The Nightmare Before Christmas (this one is a favorite of mine; it’s perfect because you can watch it for Halloween or Christmas!)

Edward Scissorhands

The Rocky Horror Picture Show

It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

Corpse BrideCorpse Bride




And because ABC Family shows them pretty much all month and if I could, I would watch them 24/7 – the Harry Potter films

What about you? Which movies get you in the Halloween spirit?

  1. I love that ABC Family aires most of these movies several times this month, as well as lots of Harry Potter I’ve probably watched Hocus Pocus and Corpse Bride three times each recently. Beetlejuice is another favorite. I also watch the original Halloween movie at least once, a movie that really scared me as kid and now gives me nostalgia.

  2. Yes, Charlie Brown and the Great Pumpkin is a classic! I always loved the old B&W Frankenstein and Dracula movies, but I’ve seen them so many times that I rarely watch anymore. One of my ‘newer’ all-time favorites is the old Salem’s Lot. I love that book and the old movie starring David Soul. I think originally it was a two-part mini-series.
