The Ten Best Halloween Movie Scenes Ever
Well... at least to me.
Halloween is, hands down, one of my top three favorite holidays of the year. There's so many ways to celebrate. Whether it be going to a pumpkin patch, doing fall thangs, heading to a seasonal beer tasting, or decorating, there's always something fun to do to celebrate the season.
One of my favorite things to do in October is watch all of my favorite Halloween movies. I could've given you a list of those, but to take it a step further, I'm giving you my favorite scenes from my favorite Halloween movies. You know, the ones that just put you in the Halloween spirit!
Check out my favorites below.
Dark shadows follows the story of Barnabas Collins, a rich man-turned-vampire, as he returns to his hometown of Collingsport after two centuries of being buried underground by witch ex-girlfriend Angelique.
My favorite scene is when Barnabas (Johnny Depp) is talking to Carolyn (Chloe Grace Moretz) about Victoria. Since he's not from this time period, the way he describes her always cracks me up. Not to mention the fact that he's a vampire who's under the impression that nobody knows what he truly is.
Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory
Everybody knows the story of Charlie Bucket, the poor and underprivileged little boy, who by some miracle twist of fate ends up acquiring a golden ticket to tour the super-secretive factory of the most famous candyman in the world, Mr. Willy Wonka.
You might be thinking to yourself, this isn't really a Halloween movie, but listen, if there's candy involved, it counts in my book. Plus, just think about all the costumes spawned from this film.
My favorite scene in the film is the 'Pure Imagination' scene when Willy Wonka lets the kids and their guardians run wild in his candy land meadow.
It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown
No holiday is complete without a classic like the Charlie Brown movies. This one is just so cute that I have to watch it every year.
One scene has Linus and Lucy off to the pumpkin patch. Linus always makes me laugh when he cries about Lucy carving it.
Spooking things up a bit, I'm going with the It remake for #7. I loved the first It, but the remake was just as good, if not better, in my opinion. I love Tim Curry, so I love the original, but the second one takes on a life of its own.
I love the remake because they didn't try copy the first. Bill Skarsgård is truly terrifying in his portrayal of Pennywise the Dancing Clown.
My favorite scene is the fight scene down in the sewer when the Losers' Club attempts to rescue Bev. It's super creepy and terrifying...

Sleepy Hollow always creeped me out as a kid, but not in a negative way. I've always been fascinated by the Legend of Sleepy Hollow, so when I was old enough to finally see Johnny Depp's live version, I told my mom we had to make a B-line to Blockbuster.
Ichabod's first encounter with the horseman is the best scene! The build-up is long-awaited come that point of the movie.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
Halloween isn't complete without a Harry Potter screening. The best one to watch for the holiday, in my opinion, is the first one.
Debatable, I know, but my favorite scene from HP1 is the 'Leviosa' argument between Ron and Hermione. I just think it's too funny.
The Addams Family Values
So many people can't stand this installment of The Addams Family, but I love it. The scene in which Wednesday burns the entire play down at camp cracks me up. She's so evil, I love it!
A Halloween movie night wouldn't be complete without the Banana Boat dinner scene from Beetlejuice.
The Nightmare Before Christmas
Everybody loves Jack and Sally. Doesn't really matter the time of year, but especially around Halloween.
Undoubtedly the most famous clip from the film, the 'This Is Halloween' sequence is, by far, my favorite.
It comes as no surprise, I'm sure, that Hocus Pocus is number one on my list. The Sanderson Sisters of Salem epitomize Halloween. The entire movie just reminds me of my childhood. Halloween is and always was a time to be alive.
The best scene, hands down, is 'I Put A Spell On You'. It's Bette Midler at her best!
