As Halloween approaches, many movie lovers turn to their favorite scary movies to immerse themselves in the spirit of the season. The best Halloween movies bring the sensation of freezing temperatures, falling leaves, and moonlit nights, along with a healthy dose of fear. A movie is a perfect way to celebrate the weeks leading up to Halloween, either alone or with friends and family.

For viewers who like to be scared, there are many Halloween-themed movies. Perhaps the most famous – and most frightening – is the movie with the appropriate title of “Halloween”. The original “Halloween” film, released in 1978, tells the story of a psychotic killer who terrorizes a group of teenagers. The film, starring young Jamie Lee Curtis, is full of suspense and a tense silence that is meant to frighten the audience. In “Halloween” Tony Moran plays the murderer Michael Myers, a mentally disturbed young man who escaped from a mental institution 15 years after the murder of his sister. On Halloween night he returns to his hometown and begins killing unsuspecting teenagers. In a terrifying final sequence, Jamie Lee Curtis’ character Laurie fights for her life while Michael relentlessly pursues her. The film ends with a gruesome twist that leaves audiences restless for hours.

“Halloween” is widely regarded as the first film in the modern slasher tradition. It was shot on a tight shooting schedule and a small budget and uses much less violence and blood than the films it inspired. The horror in “Halloween” is less visual and more cerebral, with scenes designed to keep the audience on the edge of their seats. The film inspired an entire “Halloween” franchise. A healthy dose of horror can be found in the seven sequels of the original “Halloween” movie: “Halloween II”, “Halloween III: Witch Season”, “Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers”, “Halloween 5: Michael Myers’ Revenge”, “Halloween”: The Curse of Michael Myers”, “Halloween H20: 20 Years Later” and “Halloween”: Resurrection”. In 2007 the filmmakers redesigned the first “Halloween” using the original title. A sequel to the remake, “Halloween II”, was released in 2009. The original film is still considered by most viewers to be one of the best Halloween movies.

There are many movies for families with children who want to celebrate Halloween in a less scary way. One of the most charming is “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown”. The cartoon follows the Peanuts characters as they enjoy the Halloween festivities. Linus deals with the Great Pumpkin, while Charlie Brown has trouble with trick-or-treating. The film is beautiful, short and suitable for any audience.

Another animated film that is equally appealing to children and adults is “The Nightmare Before Christmas”. This Tim Burton film is shot in the director’s unique style, with dark and gloomy scenes and creative characters. The story follows Jack Skellington and the Halloween townspeople as they attempt to mix Christmas and Halloween – with mixed results. The film is visually stunning and contains enough adult humor to entertain viewers of all ages.

For adults or families with older children, the 1993 film “Hocus Pocus” will certainly set the mood for Halloween. The story begins in old Salem, where three witches are cursed to a temporary death, and then quickly advances to the present. When a teenager, Max, accidentally wakes up the witches on Halloween night, he must find a way to defeat them and save the town. The film is filled with high-energy action sequences, ghostly night scenes, a wealth of Halloween costumes, and a healthy dose of magic. Older viewers will enjoy watching Kathy Najimy, Sarah Jessica Parker and Bette Midler as the three witches.

Families will also enjoy the movie “Casper”, released in 1995. The film stars Bill Pullman, teenage heartthrob Devon Sawa and young Christina Ricci. “Casper” gives the idea of a haunted house a whimsical twist and is more adorable than terrifying. The plot follows a father and daughter moving into an old mansion, only to discover that it already has four inhabitants – ghosts with great personalities. As father and daughter interact with their new roommates, they grow closer and develop a better relationship. With several entertaining and unforgettable scenes and no lack of romance, “Casper” is an ideal choice for a family evening.

When it comes to Halloween movies, most choices are either delicious or scary. Viewers who want to celebrate the darker aspects of the season will be happy with Halloween-themed horror movies, while less adventurous viewers will be more satisfied with movies for the whole family. From “Blood and Gore” too friendly ghosts, Halloween movies are sure to express the spirit of the season.
