October means watching scary movies. Unfortunately, I’m a massive wimp and refuse to watch anything ~too~ scary, so this my list of my favorite mildy-spooky-but-not-super-scary Halloween movies!
The Nightmare Before Christmas
I obviously can’t make a list of Halloween movies without mentioning The Nightmare Before Christmas. This is an absolute classic, and totally counts as a Christmas movie as well. It’s one of my all-time favorite movies in general, even!
Sleepy Hollow is one of those movies that are spooky, but not incredibly scary. I love how dark this movie is though. Fun fact: I used to live incredibly close to a street called Sleepy Hollow. Thankfully there have been no sightings of headless horsemen.
Have you noticed I like Tim Burton films yet? Corpse Bride is another one of my favorites! I love the story, and it’s a great movie to watch around Halloween. I can also listen to the soundtrack over and over again!
This movie is aired on tv at least twenty times each October, and yet I only first saw it last year. This is such a fun and classic movie to watch around Halloween time!
Before I knew what Dark Shadows is about, I always thought it was meant to be a scary movie. Obviously that was wrong, because it’s hilarious. I love watching this movie and I’ve seen it multiple times.
This is one of those movies that you think is going to be a mildly spooky experience and then you find out that it’s legitimately creepy. I still kind of want to read the book and find out if it’s just as creepy on paper as it is on screen.
