Halloween is one of my favorite fall holidays, and one of my favorite holidays second only to Christmas. I always enjoy giving out candy and just the general spirit of celebrating the beginning of fall and all that it brings: Cooler weather, and of course, family gatherings. This year is a bit different though.
In lieu of celebrating Halloween in person with family and trick-or-treaters (don’t worry, I’m still leaving pre-packaged candy lined on the sidewalk for trick-or-treaters to take in a socially distanced fashion), I’m instead celebrating by watching some of my favorite Halloween movies.
Here’s my list of movies that I’m watching this year leading up to Halloween:
- The Nightmare Before Christmas
- Hocus Pocus
- The Haunted Mansion
- It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown (now on Apple TV+ for free)
- The last 10 years of “Treehouse of Horrors” from the Simpsons
