With Halloween just around the corner, it’s my absolute honor to share my top Halloween movies and tv shows I’ll be watching all October.
Yes, Halloween is a month-long event.
How could this not be the greatest time of the year?
Driving by spooky decorations on front yards, endlessly browsing every Halloween costume store, filling up on candy and of course, watching classic Halloween movies.
Not only did I grow up trick-or-treating like almost every kid in America but I’ve also given out candy.
And for my 15th birthday, I convinced my parents to combine my birthday party with a Halloween party that year! (even though my birthday’s not ’til December…)
That’s how obsessed I’ve become about Halloween.
But with the pandemic right now, trick-or-treating and parties are not a safe option out here in Las Vegas.
Although it won’t be the same this year, Halloween can still be fun right from home!
I distinctly remember the year my family stopped trick-or-treating and let me tell you, that was the moment I knew my childhood was over. (very dramatic)
So I promised myself I’d celebrate Halloween any way I can, no matter what. To keep some sort of tradition alive!
And that’s why I put together the ultimate “playlist” of movies and tv shows to watch in all of October.
Ironically, even though I truly believe Halloween is the greatest time of year, I’m a huge scardy-cat.
So as a result, this list does not contain gory-jump-scare-nightmare-inducing horror flicks.
It’s all about family and kid-friendly Halloween movies & tv shows!
And there’s even a few in here that I haven’t seen myself. Which makes things a little more interesting!
So, grab your Reese’s and peanut M&M’s and let’s get to it!
Halloween Movies & TV Shows
Now, I realize not everyone (me) can rent or buy every movie.
That’s why a big chunk of these lists include movies & tv shows available on streaming platforms only: Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and Disney+.
How convenient is that?!
But for those of you who don’t mind spending your coins for a good cause, you’ll find a wee section of movies to rent or buy on iTunes or Google Play Movies & TV.
Because I gotchu!

So there you have it, 31 Halloween movies & tv shows for the whole family!
(As you can see, Disney+ really hooked us up.)
But the trick (or treat) is that I wanna hear from you!
What are your favorites from this list? Are there ones you haven’t seen? And do you have any recommendations that aren’t on this list?
I’d LOVE to expand this list. (Eventually I’ll own them all… muahahaha)
Since I’m a little early to the party, I may come back and update this list if anything gets added between now and Halloween.
I’m too excited!
Thanks for reading and Happy Halloween!
