Happy Halloween! In the spirit of the season, we compiled a list of some of our favorite Halloween-like movies (and other spooky merriments)—in no particular order.

“Nothing beats this classic slasher. The simple but effective suspense throughout the film and amazing soundtrack makes it an all time favorite for me. Plus, I’ll always remember my mom being the one who put me on to it.”

— Zach Vessels, videographer

“I’m not actually much for scary, scary movies, however, we were always Peanuts fans as kids.”

Michelle Love, a

“For nostalgia’s sake, my favorite will always be It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown since my family regularly played it the week of Halloween (sometimes multiple times). We also worked our way through all the original Frankenstein movies. Honorable Mention: Seasons 1 and 2 of American Horror Story.”

Chelsea Cornett, d

“The music is amazing. I also love how they are totally unaware of how odd they are.
Are they made with real girl scouts.’ is also quoted often in our home.”

Olivia Fabian, producer / associate creative director

“Is it a Halloween or Christmas movie? Answer: It’s a year-round movie. But I’m also going to cheat and say that my other favorites are The ExorcistSweeney Todd, Corpse Bride, Hocus Pocus and Halloweentown I and II.

— Jasmine Bejar, digital marketing manager / writer

“My sister and I used to watch this delightfully cheesy, nostalgic Disney Channel Original Movie every year (and maybe still do). After all, ‘Being Normal Is Vastly Overrated.'”

— Bridget Malinowski, account manager

“Not much for scary movies, but when I was a kid I sure loved the song The Monster Mash when it would blast out of the oldies radio in the barn, every October. I used to call the radio station all year long and request it, and never understood why the DJ would say, ‘Son, it’s the middle of June. I can’t.’

“These days, I’m grateful that Werewolves of London is playing somewhere, sometime, 365 days a year.”

‘I saw a werewolf drinking a piña colada at Trader Vic’s; his hair was perfect. Ahooooo, werewolves of London…’

“Oh, and Mr. Zevon’s interview on The Late Show with David Letterman, recorded shortly before his death, is worth your time.”

— Matt Kelley, principal
