#1. Scream: Top Halloween Movie


The Scream franchise currently has five films, but the first, from 1996, is a Halloween classic. The Ghostface murderer, who returns in the following films, makes its first appearance in this film, killing kids in a tiny village. A girl and her pals set out to find him, but not all of them make it.

#2. The Black Phone


Joe Hill’s narrative has all the markings of his father Stephen King’s books: a distinct area and time (Denver suburbs in the late 1970s), young kids coming of age who also have strange abilities, and really unsettling sensations.

A juvenile boy (Mason Thames) is kidnapped by a weirdo (Ethan Hawke) in The Black Phone, but he is able to contact prior victims via a strange phone. Unlike previous horror blockbusters, The Black Phone does not depend on jump scares and gore to frighten its viewers. Scott Derrickson’s outstanding direction and engaging acting have helped it become one of the best-rated horror pictures in recent years.

#3. The Nightmare Before Christmas


The famous, cult-favorite encapsulates Halloween’s mystique and sinister spirit—while remaining charming. The plot for this colorful, entertaining fairy tale about holidays and the monsters in charge of them, such as the Pumpkin King, Jack Skellington, who gets into problems when he wants to take over Christmas, was created by goth expert Tim Burton.

#4. Zombieland


Crazy cow sickness mutates into mad human disease in the near future, turning everyone infected into zombies. Columbus crosses the country with Tallahassee in the hopes of returning home and reconnecting with his parents. They encounter Wichita and Little Rock along the way, who throw a kink in their plans as they fight to live in this new world known as Zombieland.

#5. Get Out


When Chris meets his girlfriend’s parents, he is concerned about how they would respond to their daughter marrying a black guy. Her family appears to be totally cool and courteous at first, but Chris soon learns he shouldn’t have been apprehensive about meeting this family – he should have been terrified. Chris’s family is hiding a horrible secret that might cost him his life. Jordan Peele’s directorial debut is not only terrifying, but it also serves as a timely statement on race relations in America today.

#6. Fear Street Trilogy


The Fear Street trilogy, based on R.L. Stine’s best-selling horror series, takes set in the community of Shadyside. The first film is set in 1994 and follows a group of teenagers who discover that terrifying occurrences that have haunted their town for decades may be linked. They’re the next victims, in typical horror movie form. Sadie Sink and Maya Hawke from Stranger Things also appear in the series.

#7. I Know What You Did Last Summer

This legendary favorite heralded a new age of horror films! One year after covering up a hit-and-run accident in which they killed a guy and discarded his body, four friends find themselves on the wrong side of a hook-wielding stalker.

#8. Twilight

Twilight is a timeless classic no matter the season, but with vampires and werewolves, it’s especially fitting for Halloween. With five films in the series, you can have a Twilight-themed movie marathon in a single weekend.

#9. Matilda

Matilda is the story of a young intelligent orphan girl who desires to attend school over the objections of her foster parents. As a series of unfortunate events occur in her parents’ lives, they ultimately allow her to attend school after meeting a tough administrator whom Matilda dislikes. She discovers she possesses telekinetic abilities and attempts to learn how to utilize them for good while adjusting to her new life at school.

#10. Ghostbusters

Who are you going to call? What about three parapsychologists (ghost scientists) who formed a ghost-busting firm in New York in order to rid the city of all its spooks? Ego, Ray, and Peter lose their university research funds and launch Ghostbusters. They quickly find themselves investigating the possession and kidnapping of a woman with whom Peter was on a date. It turns out that ghosts aren’t as uncommon in New York as people believe. Halloween is the ideal time to rewatch the original before seeing the all-female remake.
