For me, Halloween is a time to watch movies. I’m onboard with dressing up and going out and doing all the other typical Halloween things, but I personally like to get comfy and watch as many halloween and/or horror movies as possible.

Some years around Halloween they show a lot of these kind of movies so I would recommend keeping an eye on your TV guide to see what’s on. Other than that I recommend all of the movies in this post, although I can’t necessarily speak for any sequels, prequels, and the such. There are 50 to chose from (technically more if you include sequels, prequels, and the like) so I hope you can find one that suits you!

Two quick notes: 1) This list is in alphabetical order, 2) these are all horror movies, but I will be doing a list of more family friendly halloween movies.
