So grab some popcorn and pop in one of these flicks for a frightful night in!

Hocus Pocus

A true Halloween classic, Hocus Pocus is beloved by children and adults alike for its magical concoction of comedy and fantasy. Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy play a trio of scorned Salem witches on the hunt for eternal youth. After being raised from the dead, the children of Salem go on an epic adventure to foil the witches before dawn.


This fan favourite is about the young Marnie, who doesn't know she is a witch until she is transported to Halloweentown, a whimsical world where skeletons and goblins are everyday inhabitants.

It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

A classic for all ages, you can always count on the Peanuts gang to mark the changing of the seasons. This holiday treat focuses on Charlie Brown's right-hand man, Linus, as he waits for the mysterious Great Pumpkin.

The Nightmare Before Christmas

Tim Burton's stop-motion classic focuses on Jack Skellington, the king of Halloween Town, whose efforts to bring Christmas Town home produce disastrous results. Is this a Halloween movie or a Christmas movie? Unclear. So why not watch it from October to December, just to be sure?
