Let’s start this out by pointing out that I do not watch scary films, I once watched Scary Movie (the spoof film) with my brothers and I couldn’t sleep, I ended up staying up all night watching Disney princess films to calm me down. That being said, I love getting in the mood for every season so I have created a list of my five favourite films to watch as we draw closer to October 31st.
This absolute Disney channel classic has been one of my favourites forever and even though I watch it now and question how I ever loved it so much, I know that I’ll still watch it every year. It’s got a very basic and predictable storyline but it does exactly what you expect from a Disney channel movie with a few chilled spooks in there too.
2. The Addams Family
I always used to watch this with my family as a kid but I haven’t watched it in a while. It’s definitely on my list to rewatch this year and I’m also considering getting tickets to go and see it in the theatre because I have great memories of this film. Let’s just hope it’s not quite as scary as I remember!
Another Disney channel classic but can I really do any type of film list without being mostly Disney movies! This film always made me want a sister so badly (I actually did end up getting a sister once I was 8 years old but it wasn’t the same as a magical, long lost twin!)
I had to watch this at school as a part of an English project and I wasn’t expecting it to be so spooky considering it’s a kids film and everything but I enjoyed it and I felt that it was scary enough to add to my list of Halloween films. I also really enjoyed the book that the film was based on which I think, in my opinion, always enhances my enjoyment of a film.
5. Hocus Pocus
The final film on my list is an absolute classic, I dare you to find anyone who wouldn’t consider this one of the best Halloween films of all time. I haven’t watched it yet this year, I think I’m going to save this one for the night itself. Let’s just hope I don’t get interrupted by too many trick or treaters!
What’s your favourite Halloween film of all time?
Love, Alice x
