Voted at number 10 was “It’s The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown”. This is a great movie for families with younger children, but teenagers still love a classic! After, “Coraline” was voted #9.

Voted at number 8 was “E.T.” Following was “The Nightmare Before Christmas”. Even though it’s not Christmas time, this movie hits home with it’s Halloween characteristics. Are you interested in a good scare? If you are then voted at number six “Goosebumps” is the choice for you. This movie will literally give you goosebumps, and have you on your feet.

Another scary movie was voted for number five, “Mostly Ghostly”. If you love ghosts and magic, this movie is highly recommended for you. Another movie for ghost lovers is “Ghostbusters”.

Twin sisters are always an unstoppable pair, and will give you a good laugh.

Voted at number two was “Hocus Pocus”. Ready to see some witches turn a boy into a cat? This movie is for you. Number two was almost a tie breaker with number one. Number one was also a Disney movie, and an all time favorite to everyone!

Number One, the most loved and watched Halloween movie is “Halloweentown”. Ever heard of a town full of Halloween? One can only imagine how amazing it is! You can even go visit if you’re really interested. Some of the movie scenes were shot in St. Helens, Oregon and every October the town transforms each year. They hold a “Spirit of Halloweentown” festival all month long.  Get to watching your favorite halloween movies Saint Joe!
