It’s Spooky Season!!! I understand it is still September, but it is never too early to get into the Halloween spirit! It is time for pumpkin spice, fuzzy socks, caramel apples, and warm blankets. In preparation for the greatest time of the year, (Halloween not Christmas) pull out your favorite vanilla cinnamon candles, your comfiest baggy sweater, and your best boots. It’s time to put a log in the fire, break out those books you’ve been meaning to read all year, and throw your hair into a messy bun, it’s Spooky Season!!! However, the best way to embrace the Spooky Season spirit is by watching plenty of eerie movies in between chugging pumpkin spice lattes and listening to Michael Jackson’s Thriller while baking pumpkin cookies. I have compiled a list of the best movies to watch for the month of October to aid you in your Halloween fun. I have additionally included some honorable mentions that did not make the cut this year for my list but easily could have made it on someone else’s. So without further adieu, here are the top Halloween movies for Spooky Season!!!
