#5: Halloweentown

This late 90s movie is a childhood classic, perfect for Halloween lovers of all ages! A newly teen-aged girl finds out she comes from a family of witches, and with the help of her grandma, she navigates these new waters. This film tugs at all of the right heartstrings! Co-stars from the film franchise’s second movie, Kimberly J. Brown and Daniel Kountz are in a long-term relationship. This movie’s iconic cast still holds a predominant place in pop culture. 

#4: Casper

Another 90s classic on the list features the talented actress Christina Ricci as its second main character. Most well-known for her role in The Addams Family, Ricci plays Kat, a young girl who falls in love with a friendly ghost named Casper. Casper is not the only ghost in the house though, his mischievous uncles are always causing problems for Kat and her father. The film features both cartoon animation and live-action characters, and it is an interesting twist from traditional ghost films! 

#3: Practical Magic 

This rom-com-style Halloween movie is perfect for a cozy fall night curled up on the couch! Iconic co-stars Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman play sister witches and get themselves into a bit of trouble when they try to resurrect Gillian’s (Nicole Kidman’s) late boyfriend. The film features a famous quote that still lives on today: “Always throw spilt salt over your left shoulder, keep rosemary by your garden gate, plant lavender for luck, and fall in love whenever you can.” This movie is everything you want in a sisterly rom-com!

#2: Hubie Halloween 

This Adam Sandler Halloween movie came out in 2020 and features several familiar faces. Of course, it’s not an Adam Sandler movie without the casting of all of his friends! The film is centered around an eccentric character, Hubie (Adam Sandler), who loves Halloween but aims to protect his small town from any harm. Hubie’s personality causes trouble when he is bullied by members of the town. This is the perfect movie to watch with littles, but also has some hidden adult humor! 

#1: Hocus Pocus

It would not be a Halloween movie list without this classic wicked witches movie! Set in Salem, Massachusetts, this film features three witches played by icons Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy. A non-believer in the Salem Witches, Max Denison, is turned believer when his sister and new friend awaken the three witches causing trouble for the whole town. Thackery Binx, the boy-turned-black cat, helps the kids to defeat the witches. This movie is a must-see during the spooky season!
