What To Watch On Halloween?

Halloween is the best time of year, the weather is cooling off, and for people like me, who live in Phoenix AZ, it is the best. Halloween also represents that the Holiday time is near. Its the first of the big 4 Holidays. And of course, the movies! So what movies should you watch this year? Fellow this list.....

Of course we all know, that almost every horror movie is an obvious given to watch on Halloween, such as well, of course Halloween itself, and others like The Exorcist, Nightmare On Elm Street, Friday The 13th, Night Of The Living Dead, Childs Play, and so on, but what are some movies that are sometimes forgotten on Halloween time? And what are some movies that even though intended for kids, even us adults can watch and have a good time....

It's The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown
Dubbed by a critic as one of "the most sincere of all Halloween specials," this classic should not be missed. How can you let Halloween pass without a sneak peek at the Peanuts gang searching for the best trick-or-treating costumes and other Charlie Brown-style antics?

The Nightmare Before Christmas 3-D IMAXStarting last year and coming back this year, in what I see as the last good Tim Burton movie, theaters all over will be showing this movie for 3 weeks only. Starting this Friday so you best hurry and check it out, trust me, fighting through the crowds of emo / goth kids is worth it.

Season Of The WitchSo bad that is it so good. One of the most insane plots in movie history, about masks that turn your face into bugs and snakes when you wear it and watch the magic pumpkin at 9:00pm. This is a good watch when you're drunk.

Ernest Scared StupidHoly crap did this movie rule Halloween when I was a kid. The best movies to watch on Halloween were always ones that took place on Halloween and this is def one of the best. Ernest and kids fight some trolls using milk? Yup. Greatness.

The Adventures Of Ichabod Crane and Mr. Toad
Of course the Mr. Toad part is not for Halloween, the Ichabod Crane? Yup. I watched him take the long long road home from the tavern after failing to pick up chicks every single Halloween on this video I had called Disneys Halloween Treat. Get this DVD and enjoy. Goes great with some Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown.

Plan 9 From Outer SpaceCampy good old school crappy horror / sci fi movie fun from one of the best at the genre, Mr. Ed Wood. There are many different types of DVDs out there for this movie, all really cheap too so it won't be hard to find.

Roseanne: The Halloween EpisodesSitcoms always had kick ass holiday episodes, but when it was Halloween time, you could always count on Roseanne to give the best Halloween sitcom episodes ever, so great, that they give them their own DVD release!


Hocus PocusGod damnit is this movie awesome? I watch it every once in awhile but when it comes on during Halloween time it is 100 times better somehow. And god damn, Sarah Jessica Parker is hot as hell in this movie!

So there ya have it, sure there are hundreds to choose from but these are just my picks, what picks have you got?


  1. I'd like to make sure everyone notices the lovely box art random has created for "Season of the Witch"...that movie could've been way more memorable, had they used Random's rendition of the box art. Nuff said.

  2. I know, thats why I said....
