1. Hocus Pocus (PG)

When three outlandishly wild witches are accidentally resurrected by some unassuming teenagers, chaos expectedly ensues. Now, all that stands between the 300-year-old trio casting a spell on the entire town is three teenagers and a talking cat. Full of many fun and bewitching comedy, Hocus Pocus is a guaranteed family favourite. 

2. Casper (PG)

Seeing is believing in this family comedy about Casper, the friendly spirit who wants nothing more than a friend, and his less friendly uncles who are determined to drive all the living out of the home. Once Casper manages to befriend Cat, the daughter of an afterlife therapist hired to exorcise the mansion, it’s up to the three to help the ghosts cross over to the other side. Heart-warming and humorous, this is another one for the family. 

3. Ghost Busters (12)

Who you gonna call? This 80s classic follows the adventures of oddball scientists Venkman, Stantz, and co. as they battle against ghouls, goblins, and ghosts of all sizes. Will they manage to save the Big Apple from untold evil? The infectiously funny blend of comedy, a pitch-perfect cast and sci-fi has earned its status as a Halloween classic for a reason. 

4. The Addams Family (PG-13)

Creepy, kooky and all-together ooky, the film sees long-last Uncle Fester reappear after twenty-five years in the Bermuda Triangle. However, suspicion over Fester’s sincerity soon arises when no one can recall details of his life. This film mixes slick wittiness with a macabre sentiment, making it perfect for Halloween with the family.  

5. Halloween (18)

This list would be incomplete without the film that namechecks the holiday in its title. Halloween starts on a cold Halloween night in 1963, when six-year-old Michael Myers brutally murders with teenage sister. After being locked away for years, he escapes and starts looking for his next victims, exactly 15 years after his first murder. Terrifying, suspenseful and nothing short of nerve-frying, this isn’t just another scary film, it set the standard for all horror films that follows.

6. The Exorcist (18)

Five decades later, this Oscar-winning flick still holds the title of one of the most terrifying movies of all time. The thriller follows a young mother who tries to exorcise her daughter after she becomes possessed by the devil. With remarkable special effects, gruesome scenes and a chilling realisticness, it’s no wonder people had to be escorted out of the cinema while watching. A landmark of a film but not for the faint-hearted. 

7. Paranormal Activity (18)

Indie horror flick made on an incredibly tiny budget, Paranormal Activity turns a simple haunted house story into 90 minutes of torturous stress. The film follows a young couple who set up a camera in their home after witnessing strange phenomena throughout the night. What ensues is frightening suspense that doesn’t rely on monsters or blood, but your own imagination filling in the blanks.
