102 Halloween Movies You Must Watch Before Halloween

I am a huge horror fan. HUGE! Horror movies calm me down weirdly. If I’m having a bad day, there’s nothing better than curling up with a good horror movie. I know it sounds strange but hey, we all have weird things like that.

I had planned to do this post on October 1st, but then I started writing out this list and found that I couldn’t stop. I was having so much fun listing movies, both children’s and adults, that somehow this list ended up at 100 Halloween movies. Technically more, because I lumped most movies that have more parts together, as opposed to writing each sequel down. That would have had us somewhere around 145 movies altogether I believe.

Since there are so many movies in this list I decided to hit publish today so that way we can all get our Halloween movie start.

I haven’t seen every single movie in this list, but every movie here I have heard about and plan to watch as soon as I can.

Let’s get on with the list then shall we?!

    1. You are the first person to say that to me about Babadook, thanks for the warning! I know, I just watched Hell Raiser finally and was like, I regret putting it on this list, even though everyone else seems to love it, I found it so boring!

    1. I have yet to see the Forest but I REALLY want to! I heard about the actual forest years ago so when I saw they were making a movie about it I got so excited!
      I love every movie you just named!

Hi! I’m Brooklyn. Like many, I thought my purpose in life was to go to university, settle down and have kids. But that is not me. 

My aim is to inspire you to travel as much as you can while you can, whether that be through au pair work, or on your limited vacation days. It CAN be done. This world is incredible, let’s explore it!
