During this time, we dare you to sit back and watch a scary movie right when it gets dark.

Here’s the top five Halloween movies ever …



  1. Halloween

Halloween is a must watch. This movie was released back in 1978 and today, it is still at the top of the “must watch” during Halloween lists.

Here’s the plot …

On Halloween night, in 1963, a 6 year old boy named Michael Myers stabbed his sister to death. After 15 years of staying in a mental hospital, he escaped and returned back to his hometown to kill, yet again.

Sounds creepy, right? Even if you have watched this before, you should watch it again.

  1. Hocus Pocus

Director: Kenny Ortega

Hocus PocusEvery year, Hocus Pocus comes on television. There’s a reason for this – it’s one of the best Halloween movies ever and it is a perfect family movie (rated PG).

Here’s the plot …

It all takes place in Salem, Massachusetts on Halloween night. After three centuries have passed, three witches (they’re all sisters) are resurrected. It is up to two teenagers and an immortal cat to stop the witches from wrecking havoc.

Go ahead, curl up on the couch, either alone or with your family, and watch this movie. It’s not exactly scary, but it definitely deserves its spot on the list of the top five Halloween movies.

If you’re down for watching something creepy, give this one a shot.

  1. Halloween II

Director: Rob Zombie

Here’s the plot …

Laurie Strode, Michael Myers sister, starts to struggle with the idea that her brother has returned back to Haddonfield, Illinois. Meanwhile, Michael is busy preparing for yet, another reunion with Laurie Strode.

This movie is rated R and the little ones should definitely be in bed when you watch this. Despite it all, I believe it is a pretty good movie and definitely deserves it’s spot on this list.
