HOCUS POCUS, Directed by Kenny Ortega. Disney, 1993.

Whether you’re choosing your marathon line-up or selecting a movie to screen solo, choosing a Halloween movie can be a trick or treat. Here are the top 13 movies to choose for Halloween!

13. Halloween (2018)

A contemporary slasher that’s perfect for the viewer who doesn’t like to travel too far back in time.

12. The Fly (1986)

Okay, yes, it’s an odd choice, but trust me that it will give a party of unsuspecting guests plenty of disgusting memories.

11. Shaun of the Dead (2004)

Laugh your way through a zombie feast.

10. Bride of Frankenstein (1935)

This camp classic is the best of Universal’s classic monster movies.

9. Halloweentown (1998)

If you need something for the whole family, there’s no better kid-friendly Halloween screening.

8. It (2017)

Yes, it’s very long, but it’s scary, fun, and nostalgic.

7. Trick ‘r Treat (2007)

The very adult alternate to Halloweentown.

6. The Blair Witch Project (1999)

It’s amazing how effective Blair Witch is even after the bombardment of found footage movies last decade.

5. Friday the 13th (1980)

The lack of Jason doesn’t change the fact that this is the best Friday to watch that doesn’t star Ice Cube.

4. Night of the Living Dead (1968)

The black and white version is perfect for an old school scare-a-thon.

3. Scream (1996)

The whodunit style is perfect for mixing cheers and scares with a group of friends.

2. Hocus Pocus (1993)

There’s something for everyone in this Halloween classic.

1. Halloween (1978)

I mean, obviously.
