Come on, when you talk about Halloween and Disney, Halloweentown is always in that conversation. Everything about this entire film series feels like magic, even all these years later. From the performance by the iconic Debbie Reynolds to getting to watch Marnie Cromwell come into her own as a young witch, the movies feel so comforting. You know these characters, and you love this place. We aren’t ashamed to admit we watch this one way more than once a year.
The Ghost in Suite 613 – Suite Life of Zack and Cody
There was no way we were going to make this list and not include the most iconic Halloween episode of TV ever. We are still having nightmares about when Esteban was possessed, pure genius television. We know so many Disney shows did Halloween episodes, but The Ghost In Suite 613 is un-beat.
The Haunted Mansion
We, of course, had to pay homage to the original, and the inspiration for the Muppets Haunted Mansion. When you have Eddie Murphy in a movie you know it’s going to be a classic. The Haunted Mansion is one of those movies that genuinely scared us as kids, and has turned into such a nostalgic comfort movie as adults.
All hail the best movie you could watch to get you into the Halloween spirit. Hocus Pocus is a movie that will be universally loved for generations. The acting, the magic, and of course all of our childhood crushes on Max and Thackery. We can hardly believe a second movie is in the works, with the original unholy trinity returning as the Sanderson sisters.
Go Twitches, Go Twitches!
Tia and Tamera had us wrapped around their fingers in 2005. We wanted every outfit they wore in this movie, and we checked our closet regularly for a magical world. There is something that is still so magical about Twitches. Perhaps it’s the idea of having another dimension to escape to that has kept us captivated for so long.
