Plan the perfect night in: The throwback spooky season marathon you've been waiting for
We're well into autumn, which means Halloween is just around the corner. Grab your coziest movie gear (think: fluffy blankets, fuzzy socks, plush pillows) and curl up for the ultimate throwback spooky season marathon, curated for your viewing pleasure.
The Addams Family
Starting off with an absolute classic, the iconic Addams Family movies follow a dark and bizarre family and a sly loan shark trying to swindle them out of their wealth. It's macabre, it's campy, it's gothic (seriously, Wednesday Addams is a style icon)—what more can you want?
We wish we had our own friendly neighborhood ghost to keep us company. This flick is just a super sweet tale about an unlikely friendship to keep you warm in the cold weather.
Once you've had a couple of movies to get settled in, it's time to bring on the horror. The twisted adaptation of Steven King's novel follows a shy and bullied teen who comes to realize that she may possess some supernatural powers. Heads up: This won't be your typical romantic prom scene.
Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island
What's new Scooby-Doo? Join the Scooby gang as they venture out to Moonscar Island on the Mystery Machine to face zombies. Actual friendship goals right there.
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
Ahh, Hogwarts. HP flicks are often considered holiday movies, but we think it's totally fair to call them Halloween films. We're streaming the third movie for its spooky vibes and dark cinematography—and the fact that it's the best one out of the franchise (fight us on this). Werewolves and pumpkins galore!
It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown
End the night on a high note with a comfy family classic. Snoopy and friends will keep you in the Halloween spirit while amping up the trick-or-treating nostalgia.
