Top 5 Halloween/October movies and TV shows

Last week I posted my Top 5 Halloween/October reads, so I had to write a blog post about my movie and TV show recommendations, right?!

1. Stranger Things
I was a bit late with Stranger Things because I didn’t watch it when it came out, but watched it maybe a few months later. My boyfriend was really hyped about this TV show and that’s why I decided to start watching it and I fell in love! Stranger Things is dark and a bit creepy and that’s why it’s just perfect for Halloween!

2. Carrie
I only watched the most recent version of Carrie, the one with Chloë Grace Moretz, and I really loved the movie. After the movie, I immediately read the book and fell in love for the second time. I think that the movie (and book) are just perfect for Halloween because they’re the perfect Thriller/Drama for Halloween!

3. American Horror Story
To be honest, I only watched the first season of AHS, but that season was so cool and strange, that it intrigued me. I also really like that the other seasons aren’t the same story because it makes the TV show more special! I do plan on continuing the series, so I hope I’ll enjoy the other seasons too.

4. The Nightmare Before Christmas
Do I even have to write something? I think we can all agree that The Nightmare Before Christmas is the PERFECT movie for Halloween (and Christmas). I remember that I fell in love with this movie when I was a bit younger and from that moment, I fell in love with Tim Burton and his characters. I do have to admit that I still need to see a lot of Tim Burton’s movies, but I just know that I’ll love all his movies!

5. Grimm
And I want to finish this blog post with another amazing TV show: Grimm. I really like this TV show because it’s such an original take on the stories of the Brothers Grimm. I think that this is another amazing recommendation due to the fact that this TV show contains a lot of monsters and special creatures as well as an amazing cast.

Have you watched any of these movies/TV shows?


  1. I love Stranger Things and Grimm is awesome, too, although I haven't seen all of it!

  2. I have The Nightmare Before Christmas on DVD but haven't seen it in years, I remember it was such a great film and perfect for this time of year. I think I'll dust it off and watch it again soon, thanks for the suggestion Shirley! I've never seen the others but always wanted to watch Carrie. Great list, thank you for the inspiration for my next movie night! <3 xx

  3. Grimm is actually amazing and doesn't get the recognition it should!


  4. These are all great picks for this time of year!


  5. Out of these I have only seen Nightmare Before Christmas and series 1 of AHS! Definitely need to up my game :)
    I've gotten back into The Vampire Diaries/The Originals lately and it's perfect for Halloween.
