31 Essential Halloween Movies!

People have been asking me ‘Wesley what movies should I watch this Halloween?’

…Ok people haven’t really been asking me this but when it comes to Holiday themed movies I don’t fuck around!

I’ve seen all of these movies and it’s about damn time the rest of you get your shit together and catch up!

I’m looking at you friends who are having babies instead of cocktails! You know who you are!

1. Hocus Pocus

Just for this interaction where you realize that ET clearly knows Yoda! #mindblown

6. Frankenweenie

I love Frankenweenie. I loved the live action original as well. If anything this is a movie for people who have ever lost a pet and wished they could bring it back.

7. The Halloween Tree

While it may seem lame this is actually overly informational. It teaches people about the origins of Halloween and how it’s changed.

8. It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

It wouldn’t be a holiday without a Charlie Brown special…which is part of the reason people don’t really celebrate Casimir Pulaski day anymore

9. Monsters, Inc.

10. The Nightmare Before Christmas

What better way to kick off Christmas movie season than with a half-breed holiday film?

11. ParaNorman

You should watch this one because you probably haven’t already. But because the characters show so much growth.

12. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone
