1. Although the title of this movie may be a little misleading, this Tim Burton film is definitely a must watch during the fall season. The main character Jack Skellington finds himself in Christmas town,but is originally from halloween town. He misunderstands the meaning for Christmas and causes some majordamage. He goes on to take on the roll of Santa Clause as well as the pumpkin king. As he proceedson his journey he meets Sally and she falls in love with him,but she questions his morals. This movie has just the right amount of spooky and the whole family will be sure to enjoy. Making this my #1 movie to watch for Halloween.

2.“I put a spell on you and now you’re mine.“ When three witches get resurrected it’s up to Mary and a cat to get rid of them completely . It’s full of songs, humor, and dash of spook. A perfect mixture for humans and witches. You must watch this movie for halloween or you’ll be next on the list.

3.This Paramount film may not look that scary, but it’s actually a animated horror film. It starts out with a boy by the name DJ, who always seems to be stalking his elderly neighbor. When his parents go out of town for a while and the old man dies suddenly from a heart attack, things get a little creepy. If you haven’t noticed from the title this movie the house doesn’t have the best interest for DJ and his friends. This movie movie isn’t the scariest ever, but if you're anything like me you’ll be okay with that.

4. I absolutely love this movie and I would have put it higher he list, but i wanted some variety. Surprise, Surprise,Tim Burton was the creator of this movie as well as the night before christmas. It begins with Victor preparing for his arranged marriage to Victoria Everglot, utb the wedding rehearsal does not go as well as planned. Due Due to Victor’s shyness he doesn’t remember his vows and  runs runs to forest to practice them. He should have been more thoughtful about where he places his wedding ring and it probably wasn't the best idea to put it on a murdered woman in an bridal gowns finger. Then Emily is convinced they are married. You’ll have to watch to find out what happens next.

5.This is a sequel to halloween town. It has the same plot,  but but different actors. When Marine and Dylan try to live the normal college life it doesn't go well . Maybe going to a school full off magic wasn’t the best idea. Will marine give into the evil? All of these disney movies in the sequel are great for halloween.
