My Top 5 Classic Halloween Films

Classic Halloween Films To Watch

If you are staying in this Halloween, after the trick or treaters are gone, here is a list of movies to watch that just happen to be some of my favorite classic Halloween movies.

5. “I got a rock.” Granted, I know this is a TV short, but I couldn’t write this without mentioning this classic. Every year, It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown is played on television right near Halloween time.  We follow along with the Peanuts gang as they journey through their trick or treat adventures and as Linus waits for that “great pumpkin.”

4. Halloweentown a place where it is cool to have Halloween all year around. The film was made as an Disney Channel original movie back in 1998. The film is very well known to young adults and teens who were born in the late 80’s/90’s. Many of us remember looking forward (and still looking forward) to watching this movie every year around this time.


3.  Whether you are ready to Time Warp or see Tim Curry in high heels, The Rocky Horror Picture Show continues to remain a classic today. The audience continues to remain alive even generations after the film’s successful release. As well as shadow-cast productions that can be found throughout the world.

2. “They ain’t afraid of no ghosts.” Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Sigourney Weaver, the late Harold Ramis, and Rick Moranis; what more do you need? This all star cast delivers a brilliant comedic performance. After all, their business is catching ghosts all around New York City.


1.  Dr Frederick Frankenstein: “No it’s pronounced “Fronkenstein” . Igor: Do you also say “Froaderick” ? ”  What other film could possibly top this?  This classic stars the great Gene Wilder and the late Marty Feldman. The film can be viewed for all ages and it is great for people who want to watch a funny Halloween film (for those of us who do not like the scary movies).
