13 Nights of Halloween

Halloween is one of the best seasons to host a movie night, in my humble opinion, because you can so easily customize it. You can host a movie and cocktail night with your girlfriends or have the little nieces and nephews over for pumpkin pie and movies… maybe throw in some homemade pizza with both options.

However, I am a big ol’ wimp. Fortunately, there are some amazing movies amazing movies that are perfect for the season, but also family friendly and/or fun enough for this big baby.

  1. This is a very solid list particularly agree with Coraline, although I would argue that the Nightmare before Christmas is more of a Christmas movie. Thanks for the list!
