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

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 is the plot:

Every year, Hocus Pocus comes on television. This is one of the best Halloween movies ever and it is a perfect family movie (rated PG).

It all takes place in Salem, Massachusetts on Halloween night. After three centuries have passed, three witches (they are 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.

Satan’s Little Helper is a movie that you must see and if you have already seen it, feel free to go ahead and watch it again (it is definitely worth it).

It all starts when a little boy becomes the pawn of a serial killer and he doesn’t even realize it. Simply put, he becomes Satan’s little helper.

  1. Halloween II


The Top Halloween Movies 4

Director: Rob Zombie

That’s right, Halloween II was directed by the American musician, screen writer, film director and film producer, Rob Zombie. When I first heard about Rob Zombie directing this movie, I couldn’t wait to watch it. Was it worth it? In my opinion, yes.

Here is 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.
