It’s that time of year again. The best season, if you ask me, when the days get longer, temperature gets cooler, and people start to prepare for one of the best holidays: Halloween. Halloween is a time to dress up in costumes and explore sides of yourself you haven’t  before. While Halloween is a time to go out and have fun, it is also occasion to stay in, wrap yourself in blankets, and watch some of your favorite Halloween movies. Although there’s many to choose from, we at the Eagle have managed to narrow down what we think are some of the greatest Halloween movies. Below are descriptions of them, so if you find yourself interested you can check them out. Without further ado, here are what we think are some of the best Halloween Movies:

Halloweentown On Halloween, while Marnie is arguing with her mother Gwen, the kids’ grandmother Aggie comes to visit. Aggie wants to start Marnie’s witch training before her 13th birthday or Marnie will lose her powers forever. But there is another reason for Aggie’s visit. Something dark and evil is growing in Halloween Town and Aggie wants help to defeat it. After Aggie leaves to return to Halloweentown, Marnie, Dylan and, unknown to Marnie and Dylan, Sophie follow her onto the return bus. Soon afterwards, Gwen follows the children to Halloweentown. While there, Aggie and Gwen are attacked by the dark force in a movie theater. Marnie, Dylan, and Sophie race to get the ingredients to activate Merlin’s Wand to stop the evil.

The Nightmare Before Christmas This movie follows the misadventures of Jack Skellington, Halloween Town’s beloved Pumpkin King, who has become bored with the same annual routine of frightening people in the “real world”. When Jack accidentally stumbles on Christmastown, all bright colors and warm spirits, he plots to bring Christmas under his control by kidnapping Santa Claus and taking over the role. But Jack soon discovers even the best-laid plans can go seriously awry.

Twitches Twitches is a very popular movie starring famous twins Tia and Tamera Mowry. Sisters Alex and Camryn were separated at birth and reunited on their 21st birthday due to coincidental circumstances. Once together, they find that they have magic powers and they should return to Coventry to save their biological mother and their kingdom from the Darkness.

Coraline While exploring her new home, a girl named Coraline discovers a secret door, behind which lies an alternate world that closely mirrors her own but, in many ways, is better. She rejoices in her discovery, until Other Mother and the rest of her parallel family try to keep her there forever. Coraline must use all her resources and bravery to make it back to her own family and life.

Charlie Brown and the Great Big Pumpkin Sally is torn between going trick or treating for the first time and attending Violet’s surefire fun Halloween party, or following her beloved Linus and waiting for the Great Pumpkin’s arrival with him. The Peanuts gang celebrates Halloween while Linus waits for the Great Pumpkin.

Mostly Ghostly Aspiring magician Max Doyle discovers two lost ghosts – Nicky and Tara – haunting the basement of his family’s home and agrees to help them find eternal rest. In exchange, Max’s newfound friends set out to help him win the heart of Traci, the most popular girl at his school. But when their magical antics make them the targets of an evil apparition, Phears, the trio must stop his maniacal plan for Halloween.
