This time of year is my absolute favourite! I am all about the horror movies and love a good fright fest. As such, I have compiled a list of over 240 titles that are SURE to get you in the mood for Halloween. With some old school horrors, to slashers to family friendly titles and everything else in-between. I’ve handpicked some of the best films and TV shows out there. There are also some movie checklists in here for you to print, use on Instagram, Pinterest or wherever!

Get ready to feel the need for a movie night, just creating this list made me want to curl up in the living room, pour out some popcorn and snuggle under blankets having a “Scare” night, family friendly obviously, well, until Little Bear goes to bed and then bring on all the blood and gore!

  8. Thanks for the list. I'm not a horror movie kind of girl but I've saved all the Family friendly titles to start watching those that I haven't from this weekend.

  9. Great list Jordanne! I really like Cabin in the Woods because it was so unique and unexpected. Also, I'm trying to watch Hocus Pocus this year because it's been recommended by so many people I know (even by hipsters who I wouldn't have expected to be into a Disney film).
