With Covid-19 in the air, I would suggest you either dress up as Spider-Man or ditch going trick or treating for candy and treat yourself instead to a cozy night with Netflix while you revisit some good ol’ Halloween classics and new releases, like these…
Hocus Pocus: If you are into clumsy witchcrafting, this trio of diabolical witches is just right for you. Funny and mildier in terms of the fear factor, this movie will take you back to the ’90s.
Scream: This clever-yet-scary slasher movie/black comedy stars a variety of big stars, from Courtney Cox to Drew Barrymore, and continues to be a fan-favorite hit that never gets old.
Halloween: I mean, very few movies are more Halloween appropriate than Halloween – another slasher movie that follows Jamie Lee Curtis not fighting an alien this time, but a mental patient and psycho who escapes a sanitarium and returns to his hometown to stalk innocent people on this festive occasion.
Edward Scissorhands: Mixing romance and horror, this Tim Burton classic, traces the unlikely love story between a man with scissor blades for hands (Johnny Depp) and a suburban teenager (Winona Ryder).
Hubie Halloween: Hubie Dubois (Adam Sandler) thanklessly spends every Halloween making sure the residents of his hometown, Salem, celebrate safely and play by the rules. But this year, an escaped criminal and a mysterious new neighbor have Hubie on high alert. When people start disappearing, it’s up to Hubie to convince the police (Kevin James, Kenan Thompson) and townsfolk that the monsters are real, and that only he can stop them. Hubie Halloween is a hilarious family film about an unlikely hero with an all-star cast including Julie Bowen, Ray Liotta, Noah Schnapp, Steve Buscemi and Maya Rudolph.
