Every October ABC Family puts on the 13 Nights of Halloween special. For the 13 days leading up to Halloween, they play classic Halloween movies and other family favorites to get everyone pumped for the upcoming holiday. Each year they mix it up a bit and add some new selections onto their list of Halloween favorites.
Some of the classic Halloween movies they play include “Hocus Pocus”, “Corpse Bride”, “Casper”, “The Addams Family”, “The Nightmare Before Christmas” and “Sleepy Hollow”.
These are some of the best Halloween movies that you can’t go through October without watching. Of course if you miss them the first time, they will be played more than once over the 13 days.
Not only do they show the classic family movies but they also throw in some scary ones for the festive people who love the scary part of Halloween. Some of these movies include “Dark Shadows”, “Poltergeist” and “Poltergeist II: The Other Side”.
Along with those they also show some of the favorite movies series for a night in binge-watching the television. Some you can catch are the “Harry Potter” series, the “Hunger Games” series and the “Batman” series.
Last but not least, they have some good shows for the kids. They show “Frankenweenie”, “Toy Story of TERROR!”, “Matilda”, “Monster’s University” and “Paranorman”.
To really get into the holiday spirit you can catch all these movies along with a few others on ABC Family from Oct. 19-31.
