My Halloween Watchlist 2020

My Halloween Watchlist 2020

Hey guys! 

With Halloween only a few days away, I’ll be sharing the spooky movies and series that I’ll be watching this year. As I’ve probably mentioned before, I’m not keen on really scary horror films – like Candyman and Sinister – but I do like the classic Halloween films (such as The Addams Family, Hocus Pocus and Practical Magic) and teen / supernatural horror films (think Down a Dark Hall, Carrie and The Craft). I’ve compiled a list of some dark / spooky TV series and movies I’ve been watching this month, or will be watching over the next few weeks – as I’m working full-time I won’t be able to get through the entire list in October!

So, without further ado, here is my Halloween Watchlist:



Halloween Watchlist Movies

  1. Nocturne (2020) – Amazon Prime. A film for fans of Black Swan and The Neon Demon. Stars Sydney Sweeney from Euphoria.
  2. The Lie (2020) – Amazon Prime. This is labelled as a ‘horror’ film on IMDb, but it’s not scary at all. Ok, so there is a bit of blood and a couple of moments that made me jump, but other than that it’s more of a psychological thriller.
  3. The Last Keepers (2013) – Amazon Prime
  4. The Craft: Legacy (2020) – Amazon Prime from 28th October
  5. Halloweentown (1998) – Disney Plus. Can you believe I’ve never seen Halloweentown?! I did watch a bit of Halloweentown High years ago, but somehow I never got round to watching the whole film or the original. Now that I’ve got Disney Plus, I have no reason not to watch Halloweentown!
  6. Down a Dark Hall (2018) – Netflix. This film was less scary than I thought and I’d recommend it to anyone who enjoyed The Moth Diaries and Innocence.
  7. A Whisker Away (2020) – Netflix
  8. Teen Witch (1989) – Netflix.
  9. Hubie Halloween (2020) – Netflix. This is a new film for 2020, and it looks absolutely ridiculous but I’m gonna give it a try!
  10. Rebecca (2020) – Netflix. This isn’t a horror / Halloween film, but it’s got eerie Gothic vibes so it’s ideal for watching on the 31st. Also anything starring Lily James is bound to be good.
  11. Spontaneous (2020) – Available to purchase from Google Play & Amazon. A strange concept, but nonetheless enjoyable, and worth watching for Katherine Langford.
  12. Fallen (2016) – Available to purchase from Google Play & Amazon
  13. Double Double Toil & Trouble (1993) – Available to purchase from Google Play & Amazon
  14. The Witches (2020) – Available to purchase, probably from Google Play & Amazon


TV Shows

Halloween TV Shows

  1. American Horror Story: Coven (2013) – Netflix
  2. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Part 3 (2020) – Netflix
  3. Cursed (2020) – Netflix. I’m not sure if this is my kinda show, but it stars Katherine Langford so I’m gonna give it a go!
  4. The Haunting of Bly Manor (2020) – Netflix. Because literally EVERYONE seems to be talking about it!
  5. His Dark Materials (2019) – HBO Max/BBC iPlayer
  6. Light as a Feather (2018) – Hulu or purchase from Amazon


So there’s my Halloween Watchlist! What films and series are you planning on watching this Halloween?

    Some great choices here. I loved the original witches so I am looking forward to seeing the new version.

    I really enjoyed the haunting of Bly manor as well x

  3. Soooo many good watches in this post. I can’t wait to watch The Witches, I was so scared of the original when I was small and this one looks soo good! I’m currently watching Bates Motel to get me into the Halloween spirit, it’s dark!

    Serena, I just watched the Lie and in true thriller fashion, nothing was as it seemed. Definitely put me in a place to question things!
