Here at SurveyMe, we’re huge movie buffs (could you tell?) and we’re jumping for joy now that Halloween is right around the corner. Movie marathons are always fun on rainy fall weekends or spooky October nights. Grab your bestie, a bag of popcorn, and start watching our ultimate Halloween movie marathon list!
The best part of this playlist is that it’s PG-13 rated and under so it’s perfect even for the little ones...or maybe the scaredy cats? 😉
Created by the same studio that produced Kubo and the Two Strings, Coraline is a stop-motion dark fantasy movie about a little girl that moves from Michigan to Oregon and spends most of her time alone while her parents are at work. After receiving a doll from a nearby neighbor, Coraline discovers another world -- one that she thinks is better than her current life. After quickly realizing that it’s not all that it seems, she must make it back home to her real parents.
For those Disney Channel lovers, this one is a classic! Hocus Pocus debuted in 1993 and has had a strong fan following ever since. The movie is about three witches that return 300 years after being hung for their spell crimes in Salem. The three children who accidentally brought the witches back to life are doing all they can to put Salem back to it’s normal witch-free ways.
The Nightmare Before Christmas
While it serves as a fun Christmas time movie, The Nightmare Before Christmas is also a great Halloween flick! Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King of Halloween Town, ends up finding himself in Christmas Town and decides to take over the holiday and kidnap Santa. It sounds like a nice idea, but he mixes up all of the holiday classics which makes for a spooky Christmas tale.
The Addams Family
*Da Da Da Dum, Snap Snap* You know and love this creepy and kooky family! The Addams Family movie debuted in 1991 with a story about a family with a home full of dark magic and disturbing characters -- including Thing, who’s just a free walking hand. Yikes!
Mel Brooks strikes again with a parody of the infamous Bride of Frankenstein film. Young Frankenstein is about the grandson of Frankenstein and his quest to create a genius creature except he makes a grave mistake by adding an abnormal brain to his monster. This hilarious movie is full of subtle jokes and nods to classic cinema, just like Brooks is famous for.
After passing in a car crash, the ghosts of Adam and Barbara Maitland are told that they must remain in their home for 150 years which sounds fine, until the Deetz family moves in. The Maitlands decide to hire Beetle Juice, a bio-exorcist, to scare away the new family but he ends up wanting to marry the Deetz’s daughter so that he can return to the land of the living.
