13 Spook-tacular Movies to Get You in the Spirit of Halloween!

Practically everyone loves to celebrate Halloween in some way or another. Whether you're a go-all-outter or just a thrills and chills seeker, there's just something about this ghoulish holiday that has us all ready to celebrate All Hallows Eve! For the cooler evenings, when it's just a little to chilly to spend the evening outside, perhaps a movie night is in order to keep the spirit alive! So, grab some candy, pop some popcorn, and get ready for a night of frightening fun. Isla Del Sol has come up with a list of 13 spook-tacular movies that will get you ready for Halloween, and some may even have you sleeping with the lights on!

Young Kid Friendly Movies
Pooh's Heffalump Halloween
Who doesn't love Winnie-the-Pooh? It's Halloween in the Hundred Acre Wood, and everyone is excited to trick or treat. But Pooh eats all of the candy (oh, Pooh Bear!), so Roo and Lumpy set off on a quest to capture a scary Gobloon who will grant their wish for more. Sweet and not scary, this film is perfect for the pre-school set.

It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown
What is a Halloween without the Great Pumpkin? Linus' optimistic wait in the pumpkin patch is a staple of the season. Plus, there are other fun, festive antics like trick-or-treating, apple bobbing, and Snoopy taking his costume a little too seriously.

Curious George: A Halloween Boofest
For littles who love Curious George and the man in the yellow hat, this is the perfect full-length Halloween movie to keep their attention. More funny than scary, this film follows George to the local Boo Festival where he learns a lot about fall and fun.

Family Friendly Movies
Hocus Pocus
After three centuries, three witch sisters are resurrected in Salem, Massachusetts on Halloween night, and it is up to two teenagers, a young girl, and an immortal cat to put an end to their reign of terror once and for all. Disney is in the early stages of developing a new Hocus Pocus TV movie! Rated PG

Horror Movies (Probably not suitable for the kiddos)
Sleepy Hollow
Ichabod Crane is sent to Sleepy Hollow to investigate the decapitations of 3 people with the culprit being the legendary apparition, the Headless Horseman. This is based off a book written by Washington Irving, so if you like to read to see how closely the movie stays to the book, you can! Rated R
