Spooktober Watch List

I don’t know about you, but October is one of my favorite months. It kicks off the top three ‘-bers.’ I say top three because let’s be real. Although September isn’t a bad month with the Fall Equinox, it’s basically the month that we use to prep for the last 3 months of the year.

Yes, living in Southern California means it’s still 100 degrees on some days but, there’s just something about the feeling of the season. There’s something about lounging on the couch re-watching classic Halloween movies and sometimes forgetting how hot it actually is outside. Sometimes, I like to wake up really early in the morning, make breakfast, a cup of coffee, and pick a movie to start my ‘fall’ day. Or begin a seasonal movie marathon and stay up really late.

Every year, though, I forget a good amount of ‘spooky’ movies that I could have watched and ultimately feel like I missed out- even in the slightest. So this year I decided to curate a list of movies (and where to find some of them) that I plan to watch or just want to remember for when my soul is ready to embark on such horrors.

However you watch your movies and whichever one you decide on – Here is an extensive list of all the spooky movies – scary and not really, but they’re classics – to watch in the month of October.
