Halloween Movies You Need To Binge Watch This October

Posted -

It’s finally October, which means it’s time to swap over your wardrobe, sip on Pumpkin Spice Lattes, and prepare for the ultimate night: Halloween. What better way to get in the spooky spirit than to binge watch scary movies? So, here’s a list of movies you need to watch this October (warning, this contains some scary images):


Halloween (late 1970s version)

About a guy in a white mask who stalks babysitters. Obviously a classic.

Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)

A guy who has knives for fingers torments teens in their sleep—but there’s a twist: if you die in your dream, you die in real life.


Friday the 13th (1980)

There’s a reason why everyone (who watches horror movies) associates a white hockey mask with death.

The Ring

7 days.

Scream (1996)

Amateur killers trying to act like the big guys.

The Conjuring 1 & 2

Just make sure to put on your big girl pants for this one.


Anything with creepy dolls is scary.

Carrie (1976 or 2013)

A girl with telekinesis and a crazy mother. Let’s just say things don’t turn out too well for anyone in this movie.


The Craft

Imagine Mean Girls with magic—and a lot of creepy sh*t.

The Sixth Sense

About a little boy who sees dead people. What.

What Lies Beneath

A horror mystery that really gets under your skin.


More of a thriller, but still disturbing.

Scary Movie (all of them)

Ironically, not scary movie at all; but it’s great at making fun of them.

Hocus Pocus

A Halloween classic.

A Nightmare Before Christmas

Another classic. Although “Christmas” is in the title, it’s definitely meant for Halloween.


I mean, are you doing Halloween right if you don’t watch Beetlejuice?

Halloweentown (all of them)

A Disney Original that all 90s kids should have watched at some point. I’m twenty-one and still watch these every year.


Casper Meets Wendy

Just because Hilary Duff is adorable in this one.
