Hey Gals! Halloween is one of my very favorite holidays and I'm so excited that it's only 2 days away. To get into the Halloween spirit, today I'm sharing my very official top 10 favorite, not so scary, Halloween movies of all time. I'm not much for horror or gore, but that doesn't mean I can't get into the Halloween spirit with my movie viewing! So mix yourself up an Apple Cider Martini, crack open the Candy Corn Bark, and snuggle up on the couch for an all-day Halloween movie fest with these picks:
The Nightmare Before Christmas
What's better than a Halloween AND Christmas movie all in one?! Plus there's fun songs, awesome stop-motion animation, and even a love story! Plus it's kid and adult friendly, so this one is definitely a must watch in my book.
Ok, so maybe I snuck one scary movie on this list, but I'm sure any true horror enthusiast would consider this one child's play. But I couldn't resist including Scream because if I'm going to watch a scary movie, it's going to at least have an all-star 90's cast to go along with it!
It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown
No Halloween movie is complete without this classic. Plus, I may be a bit biased since Little M and Fred went as Charlie and Snoopy last year!
Please tell me I'm not the only one who had a big fat crush on Devon Sawa growing up?! Even though he's literally in the movie for about 5 minutes at the end, this movie was on constant repeat every October throughout middle school and makes me completely nostalgic just thinking about it! And how awesome was that secret roller coaster in the basement?
Addams Family Values
I know this is the sequel, but this one is so much better in my opinion! Joan Cusack can do no wrong in my book, plus I love when Wednesday and Pugsley get shipped off to summer camp.
This is basically the Wiccan version of Mean Girls, so need I say more?
SJP as a ditzy witch? Yes, please!
Yes, this is a romantic comedy, but it's still totally suitable for Halloween because it's about witches!
The Rocky Horror Picture Show
You can't have a Halloween movie list without Rocky Horror. Plus if you really want to get into the Halloween (and campy!) spirit, hunt down a midnight showing and get dressed up in your finest costume, and sing along to all of the amazing music.
And last but not least, one of my absolute favorites - Beetlejuice! Another one that's not exact an obvious Halloween movie, but what better way to get you in the spirit than with a possessed (and musical!) dinnerparty?!
What are some of your favorite Halloween movies?! Am I being a total wimp by leaving the scary ones off of my list, or are you like me, and prefer to skip the gore?
