Halloween Movies You Need To Binge Watch This October

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.
