Halloween Movie List

I love all things dark, spooky, macabre, and occult-tinged, so Halloween is my favorite holiday, and October is my favorite time of year! I have grand plans to watch at least half of these movies this month, and post this list far in advance, but life caught up with me. Once I finish working the photo booth at Model Citizen's event tonight, maybe I'll crawl into bed and scare myself with one of these.

My goal here was not to create an all-inclusive list of horror movies. There are tons of great lists of top horror films all over the web. I tried to balance weird, spooky, scary, and of course: campy, based on my favorites and a super scientific poll of Facebook friends. Next year, I'll have to start two months out and WATCH. THEM. ALL!

Halloween Movie List

Army of Darkness


The Birds (or another appropriately creepy Hitchcock movie)

The Brood


The Craft

Dawn of the Dead

Donnie Darko


Ernest Scared Stupid (Know what I mean, Vern?)

The Evil Dead

The Fly

Friday the 13th

The Gate

It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown


Hocus Pocus


Let The Right One In

Lost Boys

The Mist

Monster Squad

Near Dark

Night of the Living Dead

Nightmare Before Christmas (then rewatch the Halloweentown crew getting into trouble again around Christmas)

Nightmare on Elm Street



Rock n Roll Nightmare

 Rocky Horror Picture Show

Rosemary's Baby

Santa Sangre

Sleepy Hollow

The Shining

Silver Bullet

Something Wicked This Way Comes

Son of Dracula (Harry Nillson and Ringo Star)


Teen Witch

The Thing

The Wicker Man (original)

The Witches (Roald Dahl!)

Witches of Eastwick

The Worst Witch (actually just watch the Tim Curry performance)

IMDB has a great list of witchy, satanic, and cultish films, most of which I haven't even heard of. (Thanks, Stephanie!)

This list could have been twice as long and still not covered all the creepy, campy, and strange out there. Tell me in the comments what I'm missing, and next year's list will be even better.
