Adam and Barbara decide to hire Beetlejuice, a bio-exorcist who will get rid of the Maitlands once and for all. This creepy and hilarious movie is a must watch.

4. “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” (1975)
Married couple Brad and Janet are stuck with a flat tire during a storm and discover the spooky mansion of Dr. Frank-N-Furter , a transvestite scientist. Brad and Janet meet a houseful of wild characters, including a rocking biker and a creepy butler. Through elaborate dances and rock songs, Frank-N-Furter unveils his latest creation: a muscular man named “Rocky”. A great way to watch this movie would be at midnight in a theater with some friends.
5. “The Addams Family” (1991)
When a man claiming to be Fester Addams, the missing brother of Gomez Addams, arrives at the Addams household, the family is very thrilled and excited to see him. Morticia begins to suspect that he is not the real Fester when he doesn’t remember details of Fester’s life. With the help of a lawyer, Fester tries to get the family kicked out of their house so he can keep it. A lot of drama and comedy make this movie unlike any other.
6. “Scream” (1996)
Although there is a series of four movies to the Scream franchise, the original “Scream” is a Halloween classic. The ghostface killer that reappears in the other movies makes his first appearance in this movie.

The three siblings also find out that they are actually witches and they follow many adventures as they help save a town from supernatural creatures.
9. “Child’s Play” (1988)
This 1988 story kept us up at night when we were children, and every time we saw a shadow down the hall, that meant, that Chucky was there, ready to attack. “Child’s Play” is a one of a kind horror film to watch during the Halloween season.
10. “A Nightmare on Elm Street” (1984)
Freddy Krueger comes to terrorize people in their dreams while manipulating their daily life. It is a compelling Halloween film to watch during this season.
