Given how we are all meant to be inside for Halloween this year, and given how every single one of us has somehow ended up subscribing to multiple different offers like Netflix, Amazon Prime and the lot, how about we celebrate Halloween by binging on movies using your Disney+ subscription?
I mean, we are not the kind of people who go out and paint the town red – or orange, in this case! – when there are these celebrations around the corner, but to each one their own.
We are happier at home, popcorn and movie, maybe a mask and some nail polish, glass of wine and there goes another Halloween!
I have always had a thing for Halloween and have hosted a few times over the years, I love the kids dressing up and coming around to get candies, they ended up raiding our house a couple of years back as we were not ready for how many of them would show up – such a nice memory and moment both my sisters and friends cherish a lot!
So, with the Coronavirus situation being what it is, how about a nice night in, popcorn on hand – or maybe some chocolate and candies too, stay tuned for one hell of a post on Friday! – and loads of movies until the kids pass out.
I call it a great plan.
Without further ado, here are the movies we think would make a great night in that you might have not watched over and over already – though you can find a different list from last year here!
HOW TO CELEBRATE HALLOWEEN USING YOUR DISNEY+ SUBSCRIPTION
Yes, Disney+ is home to Hocus Pocus, but since we already wrote about it, I have decided to include less famous titles, or at the very least the ones no one seems to be mentioning 24/7 once September 1st comes around.
We all know the version from Tim Burton, but Sparky was actually on the screens long before then, and Victor is just a kid who wants to bring his best friend back to life – some adjustments included!
Mr. Boogedy (1986)
When you move into a haunted house and find out there is a cheeky ghost who likes to scare all the local children… you have a chat to the ghost.
Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)
I am sadly not a fan of Mr Burton, but this one is possibly the only one I can bear – I mean, it has the Pumpkin King himself, how can you not?!
When your grandma is a good witch and you discover you are one too as you turn 13 years old, can you learn to use your broomstick to save the town?
Don’t Look Under the Bed (1999)
When you deal with a mischievous Boogeyman, who you are going to call for help? Your brother’s imaginary friend, for sure.
Can of Worms (1999)
A dissatisfied teen sends a plea for help to escape life on Earth. Would you do the same? At this point in time, I wouldn’t exclude the option, no.
Mom’s Got a Date with a Vampire (2000)
Would you ever set up a date between your mum and a…vampire? Apparently the Hansen kids would, in order to leave the house and follow up on their big plans.
The Scream Team (2002)
When you only head to town for your grandpa Frank’s funeral, and turns out ghosts do really exists?! Oh, dear!
The Haunted Mansion (2003)
One of the best attractions at Walt Disney’s theme parks, this is the story based on it: when two estate agents decided to go visit the mansion and lake with their kids, husband Jim becomes trapped in a secret passage. Will they manage to leave the mansion again?
The Secret of the Magic Gourd (2009)
Imagine you fish a mythical, magical gourd – what could go wrong? Well, your world might turn upside down.
If you want to chew on something different other than popcorn through these Disney+ Halloween recommendations – how about these spooky Halloween cookies we made last year?
