Halloween Movies | prettylittlewriter

October is upon us and with that comes cosy evenings by the fire, jumpers, candles and hot chocolate. But best of all is that we're able to watch Halloween films without judgement. 

I thought I'd share with you all my favourite Halloween films and hopefully make you want to watch them yourselves!

 Double Double Toil and Trouble (1993)

This movie features the incredibly talented Olsen twins, not to mention how bloomin' cute they are in this movie! 

The plot revolves around two sisters who's family home is about to be repossessed when they discover that their wicked Aunt Agatha is in fact, a Witch! Thanks to a moonstone she found in the past, Aunt Agatha can cast spells and do all sorts of evil tricks, even keeping their Good Aunt Sophia trapped inside her house. 
Twins Kelly and Lynn have to work together with others to defeat Aunt Agatha, save Aunt Sophia and save their family home.

Halloweentown and Halloweentown 2 (1998 & 2001)

Definitely favourites of mine, Halloweentown revolves around a family of children who have no idea that they have magical blood until their Aunt Aggie comes to visit at Halloween. Aunt Aggie wishes to start the eldest daughter's witch training before her 13th birthday or her powers will be gone forever, but before Marnie can master to art of Witchcraft, many obstacles have to be faced. 
Halloweentown 2 is very similar to the first, the family splitting their time between Halloweentown and their family home, but another baddie announces themselves and they have to defeat them.

 The Witches (1990)

This movie used to frighten me a lot as a child, and it still kinda does! The witches faces are absolutely terrifying!

The story begins with a young boy going away with his family to a hotel and stumbles across a Witches convention planning something evil. The boy has to figure out a way to stop them even after being turned into a mouse!

Scooby Doo and the Witch's Ghost (1999)

Not necessarily a Halloween film, but out of all the Scooby Doo animated movies, I find this to be the spookiest and most relevant to Halloween. 
The plot follows the Scooby gang as they visit Oakhaven, Massachusetts, at the invitation of a famous writer. The gang have to solve the mystery of a Witch's ghost that is haunting the town. 

Another favourite Scooby Doo movie is Scooby Doo on Zombie Island (1998). This is by far the creepiest and scariest Scooby Doo movie, and definitely my favourite! This involves the gang going off to a mysterious Island at the request of a beautiful young woman named Lena. Claiming that the Island is haunted, the gang have to solves the mystery of the 'ghost' and find out who is behind it all. 
There is actually a twist in this movie which I did not expect when I first watched it!
