Halloween is juuuust around the corner, which means all of the channels are starting to play Halloween movies. 8) I was just curious what y'alls favorites are.

For me it's Hocus Pocus.



I just saw a commercial come on for it and I spazzed the heck out because I love it so much. Bette Midler is absolutely genius in this. Honestly, this movie is part of why I look forward to Halloween every year. XD

Nightmare Before Christmas is also a natural given, if we're going for animated. And Beetlejuice!

What about you guys?

    I admit it, I love Hocus Pocus, too.

    I'm actually a really big fan of the horror/supernatural/monster movie genre (despite the fact that there are so many stinkers in the pile). Some of my favorites are zombie movies like 28 Days Later and I Am Legend. I also recently enjoyed the foreign movie The Host (it was weird, though) and Cabin in the Woods.

    Thank you, Ausaudriel.

    For that MARVELOUS introduction.

    Hocus Pocus is my all time favorite Halloween movie as well. But you know what I like to watch like an addict when October rolls around? Goosebumps the TV show. I love the cheesy plot twists at the end.

    OH, IT WAS ALL JUST A MOVIE THEY WERE DOING.

    BUT THE GUY GOT SCRATCHED BY THE MONSTER, DOESN'T MAKE HIM....?

    OH MY HE JUST ATE A LIVE MOUSE.

    STUFF JUST GOT SERIOUS.

    ...would it be sad if I said I didn't really know any Halloween movies? D=

    I'm assuming slashers/gore isn't what were talking about

      Ghostbusters! My favourite movie to watch at that time of year and one of my favourite movies in general.

      Not a movie, but I also must watch The Great Pumpkin special every year

      One of my favorite points about the show was seeing how every character was apart of a boy-girl paring of some sort.

      Like EVERYONE. If the man character was a boy, he's have a girl best friend or sister or an girl rival. That eventually got crazy after a while, especially in the trick or treating episode with TABITHA and LEE. They were like the seventh girl and boy pairing of that story.

      Aaaaahhhhh, Halloween movies! There are too many to chose from. I can't pick just one.

      I do like to watch bad monster movies whether they're "classics" or some B-list trash. I've got a soft spot of werewolf and vampire movies. Ginger Snaps. Underworld. Stuff like that. For me, big monster movies like Godzilla vs. Mothra are totally acceptable Halloween movies, too, so I'll have to watch something from those if I can.

      I just wish the last Twilight movie were out a little sooner. It would make for the most awful/fun Halloween night.

      With Nightmare Before Christmas I see it more as a Christmas movie than a Halloween movie. I think within the week after Halloween is a good time for it

      Hocus Pocus is my favorite. I've watched it every year since I was a kid.
      It's the iconic Halloween movie, imo.

      My boyfriend wants me to watch a lot of scary movies, though. He's kind of a horror movie buff.
      I'm scared, tbh.
      I'm not big on horror, really.

      Also, I don't consider Nightmare Before Christmas a Halloween-y movie. I watch it in-between, like during Thanksgiving.

      Hocus Pocus, Little Nicky and The Little Vampire are my absolute favorites. Watched each of them every year on that ABC family days of halloween thing they do.

      Yesterday I saw the remake of Fright Night (with David Tennant! oh, and some other people). Gonna probably add this to my Halloween movie pool since it hit plenty of the buttons for a good Halloween movie:

      - Creepy
      - Well paced
      - Not overly gory
      - Some funny scenes
      - Overall exceeding expectations

      The Nightmare Before Christmas , which I think is more of a Halloween movie than a Christmas movie. I don't watch a lot of scary movies, but two I really like are Jeepers Creepers and The Grudge.

          The Shining and Psycho or GTFO. And no, I don't care that Halloween has passed. Those two films are so good that they can be watched at any time and still scare the living crap out of me. The Shining in a purely psychological way, and Psycho with its haunting score and massive degrees of suspense. I didn't watch either of them this year, but I'm probably going to see an extended cut of the former in cinemas in the next week-or-so. So... yay me! :D
