31 Spooky Movies to Watch in October

Is it Halloween yet?

October 2, 2018

I love Halloween and have no problem celebrating it all month. If you feel the same, you might be into some of these movies!

DISCLAIMER: I don’t like gore or “torture porn”. Slasher flicks aren’t my thing either (with a couple exceptions). I prefer sci-fi: creatures, ghosts, aliens or mysteries and true crime thrillers, that kind of thing. These movies are (mostly) spooky or creepy rather than truly scary. And I grew up in the 90s…. so yeah, it's not a traditional Halloween movie list, but it's mine.

  1. Donnie Darko
  2. Practical Magic
  3. Silence of the Lambs
  4. The Sixth Sense
  5. The Addams Family
  6. The VVitch
  7. Ghostbusters (original or new)
  8. Hocus Pocus
  9. Seven
  10. Scream
  11. The Craft
  12. The Nightmare Before Christmas
  13. The Conjuring
  14. The Village
  15. Casper
  16. Beetlejuice
  17. Willow Creek
  18. The Babadook
  19. It Follows
  20. Interview With a Vampire
  21. The Fly
  22. Get Out
  23. The Thing
  24. It (original or new)
  25. Paranormal Activity
  26. The Blair Witch Project
  27. Edward Scissorhands
  28. The Shining
  29. American Psycho
  30. The Cabin In The Woods
  31. The Descent (ok, I’ve never actually watched this. I’m too scared. But I’m sure I’d love it and this might just be the month I finally get brave enough to press play.)
