In preparation for Halloween and Dia de los Muertos, these six movies are fun to watch with family and friends

October is notoriously known as spooky season, and in honor of Halloween and Dia de los Muertos, here are six of my favorite movies to get in the mood. So put on some warm socks and grab some snacks before curling up to watch these six Halloween movie picks!

“Coraline”

If you’re looking for something that’s creepy and cute, this movie is perfect for you. the beginning features a stop-motion scene of a doll being created and is extremely satisfying. Just remember to always say no if someone asks you sew buttons on your eyes.


“Hocus Pocus”

A Halloween classic. If you’re craving a typical Halloween movie with witches and pumpkins this movie is just right. From nasty spells to heart warming, original Disney songs, it makes you want to cuddle up and grab some popcorn.


“Monster House”

A highly underrated movie that more people should really check out. This one falls on the scarier side as far as kids’ movies go, with jump scares and eery twists. If you’re easily scared and looking for a good laugh this movie is your match.


“Corpse Bride”

One of my favorite movies of all time. Corpse Bride is classic, creepy Tim Burton at its finest. The film’s beautiful animation and captivating storyline will keep you hooked from beginning to end. Everything about this movie is heartwarming and worth the watch.


“Nightmare Before Christmas”

This might be one of the most overrated movies on the list, but it is a forever classic. If you’re one of those who begins prepping for the Christmas season right after Halloween, then this movie suits you like no other. If you enjoy fun animation and musicals this movie then this is likely already on your list. Combining both holidays into one has never been better, because of course, two is always better than one.


“Twitches”

This iconic throwback Disney movie stars the famous twins, Tia and Tamara Mowry. Twitches gives you the munchies, so get cozy and grab those snacks because you’re in for a spell. And if you’re watching with a sibling or a close friend this heartwarming movie can be a lovely bonding moment.
