Favourite Halloween Movies

So yeah, it might be a little bit early to be loading up on the Halloween movies but hey, if it's October then it's Halloween time. These movies aren't even strictly Halloween movies as such, just ones that get me into the spooky spirit for this time of the year. In no particular order, here are some of my favourites - by the way, I scare REALLY easy which is why I haven't included any horro movies. Because I don't watch them. Because I hate them. Because why is everything so scary. Enjoy!

Starting off with some good ole animated spooky stories, first up is Corpse Bride! Tim Burton (whose going to appear here a few times) is the king of all things odd and creepy and this little love story is no different. 
 Another Timmy B. movie up next - Frankenweenie. Yet another adorably creepy stop motion about mans best friend dying, and coming back to life. And dying. And coming back to life again... It's the circle of life basically.
 Love love loved Hotel Transylvania, I loved seeing the reincarnation of characters from original scary stories into lovable cartoon characters. And also, yay for human/monster crossbreeding...?
 Another Tim Burton creation (as writer this time), Nightmare Before Christmas is such a cult classic and combines my favourite annual holidays - Halloween and Christmas. DOUBLE WHAMMY.
 Not going to lie, Coraline creeps the bejaysus out of me. The whole backwards other world and the buttons for eyes and the giant spider mom - it's a lot to take in. But it also has some great musical numbers which makes up for all the spookiness.
 And now lets be grown ups and move onto some live action films, starting with The Addams Family! Who doesn't know and love this oddball monstrous family, and who doesn't love Morticia and Wednesday's style?!
 "It's just a bunch of Hocus Pocus" and by God do I love it. Creepy when you're a kid but gloriously funny and memory reviving as an adult. The Sanderson sisters are the most stereotypical and hilarious (but also scary - no come on you know Winifred frightened the bejaysus out of you) witches AND THE SONG the Come Little Children song. Much enchantment. 
 Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice! Again, as a kid this scared me no end and definitely gave me nightmares, mainly because of the sandworms and the Maitlands in their very weird eyes-in-mouth-and-giant-head stage. 
 Ahhh, The Craft. A good old 90's teen movie with a witchy twist. If you're any way into witchcraft or magicy kind of stuff this is a great movie (though it gets a bit nuts at the end) plus the fashion is FAB. And who doesn't love Nancy and her iconic "We are the weirdos, mister" line. 
 Another guilty pleasure of mine is The Interview with a Vampire. Some good old fashioned neck sucking and wooden stake wielding and a fantastically creepy porcelain-doll-like young Kirsten Dunst. Whats not to like?! Oh and also Brad Pitt. Yeah.
 One of my all time fave magical/witchy movies has to be Practical Magic. Another super fab 90's witchcraft movie with some very sassy witches, a lot of alcohol and a lot of girl power. This is the house I wish I could have grown up in, with chocolate cake and no homework and lots of magic. 

And now, for some newbies that I'm super excited to see in the cinemas -
First up is The Final Girls (awh yeah Taissa Farmiga yeah, can I get a whoop whoop for AHS Coven btw? Un. Real.) which sees a group of teenagers pulled into a horror movie from the 80's. Amazing.
Next up: Scouts guide to the Zombie Apocalypse. Just the name sounds amazing, If you're a fan of Zombieland then this has to be for you.
 Sigh, Gasp, Swoon etc. Vin Diesal returns to the big screen as a witch hunter in The Last Witch Hunter which just looks amazing. Oh and also HEY THERE YGRITTE whatchu doing here?!
 Last, but most definitely not least, we have Goosebumps. If you grew up in the 90's, you read Goosebumps. These kiddie horror books gave me nightmares and I can still, to this day, remember the stories which scared me most - the ventriloquist doll, anyone? This movie had better be absolutely stand up, it's got a lot to live up to. 

Hope you enjoyed this little Halloween favourites, let me know if I've left anything out, or what you're favourite Halloween movies are! Have a spooky one!
