Halloween falls on a Monday this year, making it the perfect excuse to cozy up with spooky classics while waiting for those adorable trick-or-treaters.
We’ve queued up our fave picks of the season — there’s one for every level of fright, whether you’re home alone or on having a date night. Grab the candy stash, pop some corn, and get ready to #NetflixandThrill.
The Craft (1996)
Before there was Mean Girls, there was The Craft, a film about new kid Sarah who uses telekinetic powers to boost her coven clique’s status — until things quickly spiral out of her control.
Anyone who grew up watching Disney Channel will remember this campy gem about a pre-teen who, under the mischievous tutelage of her grandma, finds out she’s a witch and must use her newly begotten powers to save a supernatural town.
Hocus Pocus (1993)
SJP is about to launch her first series since SITC, but before she was pining for Mr. Big and Louboutins, she was raising a ruckus alongside her witchy sisters in this ’90s classic.
Stranger Things (2016)
Okay, so, Stranger Things isn’t technically a movie, but we don’t know anyone who didn’t devour all eight episodes of this surprisingly sweet, sci-fi smash hit in just one sitting.
The Babadook (2014)
You know you’re in for a thriller flick when spook master Stephen King himself lauds it as “deeply disturbing and highly recommended.” Our personal rec? Don’t watch this one alone!
The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)
“This is Halloween, this is Halloween…” Whoops, did we get that song stuck in your head, too? This joyfully macabre classic about everyone’s fave Pumpkin King is an annual must-see, and lasts the entire holiday season.
Edward Scissorhands (1990)
The king of kook snipped his way through ’90s suburbia and straight into our hearts. And it wouldn’t be Halloween without an elaborate costume — it took Depp a reported four hours to get into his scissor-heavy gear.
Sleepy Hollow (1999)
Tim Burton and Johnny Depp — aka the unofficial poster boys of Hollywood Halloween — nailed this live action classic, about an unconventional constable sent to solve a series of mysterious crimes.
