Top 15 Halloween Movies You'll Want To Watch

As soon as October arrives I start thinking about some of my all-time favorite Halloween themed movies and which ones I want to watch. Usually I wait until the second week of October and will totally binge watch about three to five on the weekends. There is nothing like getting into the Halloween spirit like watching some spooky movies. 

Now let's get this straight, I'm not a fan of bloody, or gory movies for that matter but some spooky comedies are some that I really enjoy. My all time favorite has to be Hocus Pocus, it's seriously a classic and that is why it's number one on my list, although no other films are in any particular order other than the first. 

The reason I'm posting this early in the month is so you can get some ideas if you're wanting to watch some yourself. I haven't even seen every movie on this list yet, so I know which ones I'll be looking into. If one of your favorites isn't down below, then leave a comment below letting me know!
