One thing I love just as much as candy around Halloween time is all the great Halloween movies/specials on television. I used to love when ABC Family would do 13 nights of Halloween and play a different movie every night. I don’t like scary movies, though, I just like cheesy made-for-TV movies. That’s probably why I loved Disney’s Halloweentown as much as I did. I’m pretty sure the year it premiered, I saw it like, 12 times.

But, if I had to choose my favorite Halloween movie from this list, I would say Hocus Pocus. It’s a movie I will never get sick of. What is your favorite movie to watch around Halloween?

  2. I also really loved Disney’s ‘Under Wraps’ made for TV movie! That mummy was hilarious. This list is amazing.

  3. BEETLEJUICE!! My all time favorite Halloween movie!! Nightmare Before Christmas and I’m definitely a fan of the classic horror movies! Just enough creep and some camp!!

  4. Hocus Pocus is my favorite Halloween movie, too! Ghostbusters is an all-time classic that I enjoy throughout the year! More of my fave’s to watch this time of year: The Witches, Clue, Witches of Eastwick, anything from Director Tim Burton and ALL the Harry Potter’s.

  5. Do you remember “The Worst Witch” with Fairuza Balk and Tim Curry? I loved watching that growing up and not many people seem to remember it! I also adore “Practical Magic” and “Rocky Horror Picture Show” around this time of year!
