So, it’s a free weekend before Halloween and you’re feeling nostalgic, what do you watch? The following five movies are a perfect choice but they are mostly kid/family friendly because well, I can’t stand a scary movie when it’s dark.
1. Hocus Pocus
This is a classic, argue with yourself. Everything about this movie is perfect, the characters, the 90s cheesiness, the costumes, it’s definitely my favorite Halloween movie and should be watched every single year.
If you don’t like Halloweentown are you even human? Halloweentown is the cutest, campiest, and the most fun I ever had with Halloween when I was a kid. Honestly, the whole series is perfect (even the one without Kimberly J Brown). Do yourself a favor and honor Debbie Reynolds in her iconic Disney Channel series.
3. The Craft
This one definitely doesn’t match the rest of the list but I’m literally obsessed. It’s dark and twisted and the perfect Halloween movie for teens and young adults for sure.
If you were a little girl in 2005 you literally lost your mind with this movie and the 2007 sequel dropped. Two twins who were separated at birth discover each other and the truth about their parents, and the fact that they have their magical powers. This movie is the best.
5. Monster House
I remember seeing this movie in theaters, it’s kind of terrifying but also a ton of fun to watch with friends. I actually kicked off my Halloween movie night with this year with Monster House.

Twitches and monster house are my fav from this list. 😍
I remember Twitches! That was a great movie and I’ve been on the hunt trying to figure out what are some family-friendly movies to watch with my girls and you’ve done the work for me. Thanks for helping me plan the weekend!
Glad I could help!
I haven’t watched The Craft and I love all of the others so now that I know I can trust your judgement 😂I’ll give the Craft a try!
A few weeks ago the craft came on TV. I swear watched it when I was like in grade school! Looking back on it -it’s so twisted. A good watch !
OMG TWITCHES!!!! I totally forgot about this movie!!
All of these are my favs! I haven’t seen THe Craft, so that’s on my list! I hope it’s on Hulu or Netflix.
I should’ve looked into that! It was on Netflix this time last year though
My daughter was just watching Hocus Pocus on the FreeForum channel Saturday. My parents were super religious so we didn’t get to enjoy movies pertaining to Halloween. Lol
Hocus Pocus use to scare the crap out of me lol, and I still refuse to watch The Craft. Halloween Town & Twitches are my jams though!
These are fun movies to watch! Thanks! I’ll add the Haunted Mansion to that list too!
Halloweentown and Hocus Pocus are total October classics! Great choices!
I have only seen Hocus Pocus. I now know what I’m doing leading up to Halloween. I will be watching these movies! Thanks for the list.
I love Hocis Pocus, The Craft, and Monster House. I’ve never seen the other two, so now I have to have me a Halloween movie night and watch those. Thanks for the awesome suggestions.
I have yet to ever watch hocus pocus !!! I am determined to watch it this year lmaoooo I have watched the rest and i love them all!! Will watch them again with my son
Not a huge fan of Halloween but these movies aren’t so bad! I love twitches so it’s def on the list!
I am a Hocus Pocus Gal all the way!! I also love Practical Magic too even though it is not as much about Halloween, still love it.
I’d love to see Twitches! I might actually reall like it I think!
