Halloween Movie Marathon

The witching hour is upon us… well it will be tomorrow!

It’s kind of crazy to think that it’s already October.  I feel like I was just making New Year Resolutions yesterday, but onward with the holiday season.  To celebrate Halloween for the duration of October, I have decided that I’m going to watch one Halloween themed movie per weekend until October 31st!  I thought this would be a fun way to celebrate the holiday, relax on the weekend, and watch some throwbacks!

So here is my starting lineup!


Week 1: Kicking things off on the right foot, I opted for a double feature of one of the best Halloween movies in Disney Channel History – Halloweentown.  YAS!  This is a move that I religiously waited all year for as a child for it to come on.  I thrived when Disney kept adding new additions because I loved it so much.  I think this movie should be a year-round thing I’m just saying.  Also, can we take a minute to appreciate that Kimberly J. Brown, the actress who plays Marnie, is currently dating, Daniel Kountz, who played Kalabar’s son in Halloweentown II: Kalabar’s Revenge.  OKAY GOALS?!  Also, long live the queen, Debbie Reynolds – any movie to enjoy her quirky and adorableness is a win.

Week 2: A Disney Channel Original Movie that I have not heard in years, Twitches.  Honestly, when I saw it at Target I probably squealed.  This was such a good movie, and I don’t think it got enough love as it should have.  I mean it exposed two of my childhood dreams: 1.) to find a long-lost twin sister and 2.) to be a witch.

Week 3:  Welcome Foolish Mortals!  While the Haunted Mansion attraction may give us the creeps year round, it becomes more relevant this time of year.  I have loved this movie from a young age when it first came out.  Eddie Murphy is hilarious, and I enjoy the background story it gives to the ride.

Week 4: Of course, to finish off this marathon I am ending it with the truest Halloween Classic – Hocus Pocus.  I watch this movie every year around this time, and it never seems to get old.  I love how Disney has brought it back to life with in-park entertainment at the Halloween parties.  It is a true Halloween classic!

And what is any good movie marathon without some snacks?!

I will not deny that I can’t resist a nice glass of wine, especially after a long week.  I’m especially partial to rosé, but any drink would look perfect in this Hallo WINE glass from Michaels!  And what is any glass of wine without a sweet treat to pair it with?  My trifecta Halloween favorites: candy corn, Trolli sour gummies, and of course Resse’s Pumpkins.  I swear that the pumpkins taste so much better than regular peanut butter cups but maybe that’s just me.

Of course, I have my honorable mention movie as a backup!


Truth be told, I have never actually watched Tower of Terror, but I have been on the ride before.  I am excited to give this a watch for the first time this holiday season!

I hope this movie marathon helps put you in a spooky mood to get ready to celebrate Fall and Halloween!
