13 Movies to Watch During Halloween Season

Are you in quarantine feeling nostalgic for last year’s Halloween bash? Are you also bummed out about not being able to go out trick o’ treating this year? Well, worry no more. We have the next best thing to do: Binge on some classic movies to lift your spirits.

Grab those costumes from pre-Covid years and let the marathon begin! 

1. Hocus Pocus

Nothing like some badass witches to set the tone right. And how good did Sarah Jessica Parker and Bette Middler look as witches?!

2. Halloweentown

A classic Disney Halloween movie complete with witches, goblin, vampire, and much more.. Halloweentown had inclusivity and acceptance of every creature so we stan!

3. The Nightmare Before Christmas

Jack Skellington and Sandy Claws are two puns that still have me in stitches. The two biggest holidays of the year in one movie, I mean that’s a recipe for success. 

4. Twitches

Before Tia and Tamera Mowry got their own reality TV series, they starred in a movie about twin sisters separated at birth who were royal witches. It was a Disney Original so needless to say, there were tears, love and laughter. That moon necklace was a dream.

5. The Craft

The age-old tale of outcasts forming a clique which turns out to be cooler than the rest of the school. Sign me up because changing hair colors and levitating sounds rad.

6. Ghostbusters (1984)

“If there’s something strange in the neighborhood, who you gonna call? GHOSTBUSTERS!!” If you did not sing this line, you have to watch this absolute cult classic and that song will be stuck like gum in your head.

7. Coraline

Well, I’m not kidding when I say this movie gave me the heebie-jeebies. Something doesn’t sit right when you picture buttons instead of eyes. The movie is just amazing and Miss Coraline’s name is so wonderful, very goth.

8. Casper

The momentary happiness all the kids got when Casper was turned into a human is hands down the most bittersweet experience. That rollercoaster to the basement was pretty fun. Can we get it to Disneyland ASAP?

9. The Addams Family

Cult classic series to binge on Halloween. The 1991 movie was especially perfect because of Christina Ricci’s stellar performance as a dead-on-the-inside, Wednesday Addams.

10.  Beetlejuice

Living in your own country home rent-free and out of radar sounds like a great life. Befriending a goth teen who is the only form of human contact is the cherry on top.

11.  Carrie (1976)

Want something more spine-chilling? Your search ends here.   

12.  Child’s Play

Despite having comedy bits within the franchise, Chucky still gave everyone sleepless nights. The fear of dolls that was instilled in many kids, started from this very movie. I’m just going ahead and saying that Chucky walked so that Annabelle could run.

13.  Friday the 13th

Man, this Jason guy didn’t die for 12 movies. This slasher horror franchise is more sci-fi than the “Hollow Man” franchise. Jason, honey, please consider changing your career.

Well, those are 13 among the many many movies you can watch during Halloween. We hope that these movies help kill your boredom while quarantining. Happy Halloween!

Lindsay Lohan’s Iconic Roles

Whoever doesn’t love the original queen of drama can exit the chat. Lindsay Lohan has given us drama on-screen as well as off-screen after all who didn’t love her in “Mean Girls”?

Her journey may have had its fair share of ups and downs but let’s face it, some of Lindsay’s on-screen characters stayed with us all our adult …erm teen years. Here is a countdown to 7 of her most iconic roles.

7. Lola Steppe (Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen, 2004)

Was it the sign of things to come? Maybe. Was the drama just right for our teenage hearts? Hell yes! Lola was over-the-top dramatic but then the movie title had warned us in so many words.

6. Casey Stuart (Life-Size, 2000)

Not one of her best-known films, but paired with Tyra Banks’s on-screen Eve,Casey served us some heartwarming scenes.

5. Maggie Peyton (Herbie: Fully Loaded, 2005)

Who would’ve thought that the camaraderie of a car and a girl would have such a profound effect. The only love story I live for is Maggie and Herbie. *ugly crying*

4. Annie James-Hallie Parker (The Parent Trap, 1998)

One of Lindsay’s highest grossing films was a treat because at 12, the girl could act!Bonus points for juggling both English and American accents.

3. Cady Heron (Mean Girls, 2004)

A cult classic for a gazillion reasons. Iconic outfits, drama, nerds, divas, and of course, Tina Fey. Cady Heron was the nerdy genius we all needed in our lives.

2. Anna (Freaky Friday, 2003)

Many may disagree with “Freaky Friday” being placed above “Mean Girls,” but Lindsay gave one of her best performances in the movie. Imagine juggling the role of a 40 something working mother and a 17-year-old angsty teen. Not easy, Tess. Brownie points to Lindsay’s song “Ultimate” that plays during the end credits.  

1. Queen Lilo (Mykonos Party, 2018)

“Honey, this is how you throw a party in Mykonos” is the one phrase Gen Z’ers live and breathe. The only role we live for is Lilo being her true, happy self. That video gives me life and hope and love for this wonderful woman. Y’all need to whip out that camera and #DoTheLilo.

Miss Lohan is an entrepreneur, singer, teen icon and she rose above all the adversities at a very young age. How many live to tell the story of their stints and take responsibility for their actions? Lilo did that and with grace and is living her best darn life. Here’s to many more Mykonos videos and Lilo years.
