Halloween Movies We Look Forward Every Year

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at UCSB chapter.

The leaves are falling, the wind is starting to feel crispy, and Halloween is just around the corner. And if you’re a Halloween enthusiast like us, then you must be excited to watch all of the holiday -oldie but goodie-  movies! Below is a list of some of our favorite Halloween movies:



Edward Scissorhands

No one could ever make crazy hair and scissors for hands look so good like Johnny Depp himself can.


Beetle Juice

Beetle Juice, Beetle Juice, Beetle Juice!” Tim Burton’s Beetle Juice, has permenantly kept us from looking under the bed! And Beetle Juices’s black and white stripped suit will forever remain legendary.


Hocus Pocus

For over 20 years the Sanderson sisters have continued to keep us focused on Hocus Pocus.




Umm, so how can we go visit Marnie in Halloweentown this year? Because I think we all deserve to go!


The Adams Family 

Can I just say, Morticia and Gomez Adams’ love for one-another equals #RelationshipGoals AF!


The Nightmare Before Christmas

Another one of Tim Burton’s legendary creations- thank you Tim for giving us Jack Skellington and Sally! They will for-never be forgotten during the Halloween season.

Harry Potter

The Harry Potter series may not exactly equal Halloween to everyone, but I mean there are wizards, goblins, witches, half-bloods, and monsters and, well, we just can’t get enough of Potter! Thank you J.K. Rowling!


We hope you enjoy our list! Have a spook-tacular Halloween!
