My Favourite Spooky Movies For Halloween

Sponsored Post

The kids are back at school, the weather is cooling and we start to look towards autumn. For me, autumn is one of my favourite seasons, with the other being winter, because, well Christmas!

I love autumn because not only does it bring my birthday and Halloween, it also means its socially acceptable to be inside, snuggled under a blanket, eating yummy treats and watching the TV!

Whether you're the type of person that streams their viewing on a tablet, sticks to Freeview and a standard TV or pays for a subscription service and watches on something fancy, maybe a 4K HDR TV by Panasonic or the like, there's plenty to watch on the run up to Halloween.

Offering a mix of family friendly and strictly grownup movies, here are my favourites for Halloween!

The kid friendly option!

If you're looking for a movie you can watch as a family then of the Hotel Transylvania movies will fit the bill!

Familiar Halloween characters take a friendly animated form, bringing lots of laughs along the way!

For the teenager!

Too grownup for our first on the list but not grownup enough for a horror? Then learn in the direction of this classic!

Hocus Pocus poster

Hocus Pocus! Staring Better Middler and Sarah Jessica Parker, before her Sex In The City days, it's not too scary but set on Halloween night gives you plenty of spookiness. I love Hocus Pocus and I'll confess that we've already watched it twice in the last few days. The Sandersons are my favourite movie sisters.

The horror classic

I first watched this favourite at college and studied it's plot, how it built suspense and what made it's boiler suit wearing villain so scary.

In my opinion Halloween is one of the must see classic horror movies and one of the best of its time. Make sure you hang on to your popcorn though as there's some jumpy parts and if you get the chance checkout the alternative ending. 

The found footage

A craze started by The Blair Witch Project, found footage movies are always that bit edgier.  They seem a bit more real, making them that bit more scary and this favourite gives plenty of scares!

Paranormal Activity movie poster

Paranormal Activity is predominantly set at night and shows a young couple being hounded by a demonic presence. You might want to sleep with the light on by the end of it.

The trilogy maker

Plenty of successful movies become trilogies and horror movies are no different. The last of my favourite spooky movies for Halloween is the first in what has become a hugely successful chain.

The Conjuring movie poster

The Conjuring sees real life paranormal investigators Lorraine and Ed Warren try and help a family being terrorised by an evil spirit. The open ending and the fact that the Warrens aren't fictional gives it that edge. It doesn't matter how many time you watch it, it will still make you jump after a couple of times!

Will you be watching any spooky movies this Halloween? Let me know what you'll be watching in the comments.
