Special Edition: Favorite Halloween Films!

Updated: Mar 16, 2021

Ah, Halloween - the most divisive holiday on every Christian’s calendar. Now, regardless if you enjoy celebrating it or just aren’t comfortable with such a macabre holiday, I am a middle-of-the-road kind of person. I can do without the ugliness, the witchcraft, and zombies. (*Blech*). However, I do love the fun costumes, candy, and our family’s annual Halloween party!

It’s too bad we had to cancel most of the fun and games this year. However, there is one thing my family likes to do through October that didn’t have to be canceled: our Halloween movie binge. We may not abide extreme slasher films, but we do like creepy silliness and sometimes a good thriller. So just for fun, I’d like to share with all of you, my loyal followers, some of my personal favorite Halloween films. With that being said, I want to clarify that our family’s definition of Halloween film doesn’t necessarily mean it has a Halloween theme. It simply refers to specific movies we like to watch during the Halloween season. And with that, here is my list of some of my personal favorites!

(*Since Halloween is a sensitive topic to Christians at large, I’ll leave little warning labels on each of my selections. Just so you’d know what issues you may be in for if you’d like to go see these movies for the first time.*)
