Halloween Movie Playlist


September 2nd is the official of  the beginning of autumn in the 2018 year. With that being said, the most celebrated holiday is coming: Halloween.

As the years go on and people get older, they seem to stay in more handing out candy or even just sitting around with a bowl of candy to eat for themselves as they watch movies. During the fall time a lot of movies start to float around that are scary or relate back to Halloween.

If you’re one to stay in during this time get ready to write down some movies to watch on Halloween night.


If you’re into the less technically advanced movies you may love or even fall in love with movies like:

Psycho(1960): starring Anthony Perkins and Janet Leigh

The Shining (1980):  starring Jack Nicholson, Shelley Duvall, Danny Lloyd “Heeeeere’s Johnny!” 

A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984): starring  Heather Langenkamp, Johnny Depp, Robert Englund

Beatle Juice (1988): starring Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis, Michael Keaton

The Addams Family (1991): starring  Anjelica Huston, Raul Julia, Christopher Lloyd

These movies are “stereotypical” horror movies that give you a good laugh or even a good scare.

“My favorite classic movie is The Addams Family because growing up I was told I looked like Wednesday Addams” said Courtney Sadownik, a Junior at La Joya.


Growing up in the 90’s and early 00’s people are practically waiting for this time of year to watch Disney Productions with the Halloween theme on Disney Channel and ABC Family, now called Freeform. If you’re a Disney lover you my like (or have seen):

Twitches (2005): starring Tia Mowry-Hardrict, Tamera Mowry-Housley, Kristen Wilson

The Little Vampire (2000): starring  Jonathan Lipnicki, Rollo Weeks, Richard E. Grant

Freeform is also going from 13 days of Halloween to 31 days of Halloween!

“My favorite Disney Halloween movie is Corps Bride because his story telling with the animations are amazing” said Tessa Madron, Junior at La Joya.


Over the last couple of years a great amount of horror movies have made their way to the big screen, a lot of these being remake, and critic are loving it. If you love horror movies and classic remakes you may like:
