A teen who doesn't believe in Halloween magic (the nerve!) unwittingly unleashes the 3 most fabulous witches ever, to wreak havoc on the sleepy town of Salem.

This Halloween classic is a great way to put a freaky fun spell on your party guests, or to sing loudly to over a bowl of popcorn with your bffs.


2) The Witches of Eastwick (1987) 😆😍

A blonde, a redhead and a brunette walk into Jack Nicholsons' mansion...I feel like a synopsis isn't even necessary with a cast like this.

Three single friends (Cher, Susan Sarandon and Michelle Pfifer, I mean, really. *swoons dead*) find their inner power awakened when a mysterious and ridiculously charming Jack Nicholson, I mean man, arrives in their idyllic small town, and all manner of shenanigans ensue.

If you want a thoughtful, empowering and hilarious good time, look no further than this smoking classic!


3) The Witch (2016) 😱

New England, 1630: William and Katherine try to lead a devout Christian life, homesteading on the edge of an impassible wilderness, with five children. When their newborn son mysteriously vanishes and their crops fail, the family begins to turn on one another.

'The Witch' is a chilling portrait of a family unraveling within their own sins, leaving them prey for an inconceivable evil. Creepy goodness to the max! Streaming now on Netflix Free!


4) Death Becomes Her (1992) 😆😍




Another star-studded classic with murdery-good hijinks! Goldie Hawn and Meryl Streep bring shade to a whole new level in this creepy comedy about two aging, catty women fighting for youth and the same man.

When a mysterious, exotic woman gives them a magical elixir, these babes use it to flex supernatural pettiness in epic, blood-soaked fashion. This is by far one of my all time Halloween (or all the time) faves!


5) The Craft (1996) 😱👻




This movie is legitimately everything. It's the stuff teenaged outcast dreams are made of!

When a new girl falls in with a group of misfits at her Catholic high school, they find that together they have the power to make their every wish come true, and to turn their enemies lives into nightmares. But that kind of clout comes at a high price.

From drool-worthy outfits to killer revenge scenes, this has got to be the coolest and creepiest cautionary tale ever, about the great responsibility that comes with the status of being cult fashion icons... I mean power. This movie in a nutshell?

6) Practical Magic (1998) 😧😱😆😍




This is a feel-good movie for the true modern witches at heart. Two sisters gifted with natural magic and raised by eccentric old aunts (which we love!) who are also witches (which we SUPER love!) come together to battle a psycho ex-boyfriend (#relatable), a close-minded small town of jerks (#SUPERrelatable) and a curse threatening to prevent them from ever finding their true baes, I mean loves. Rude!

This movie is dear to my heart for its depiction of how beautiful a nature-based spirituality can be! And also because danger and potions and that drunken family tequila dance scene! 


7) Harry Potter (2001-2011) 😆👻🎃





Listen. I'm gonna tell you right now in the spirit of full disclosure that I have at least 2 all out Harry Potter marathons a year, complete with a day of ALL 8 movies, a silver goblet of sparkling cider and my Hogwarts cloak. Because I'm that girl.

A little boy is orphaned to his ratchet aunt and uncle (who we HATE!), finds out he's a wizard and gets sent to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry to follow in the footsteps of his famous witch mother.

With the help of his two best friends, evil is vanquished, treats are devoured in the great hall (which my food-loving face would literally kill to get into), and lessons are learned about courage, honor and the need for great companions. Did I mention the treats?  I swear to you half the reason I watch these movies is to look at their meal spreads. *Drools* 


8) The Blair Witch Project (1999) 😱




The very first of the "found footage" horror movies to go mainstream, this terrifying classic is the remnants of a documentary project gone bone-chillingly wrong.

Three filmmaker students take their cameras and tents into the woods of Maryland (just...why though?!) to investigate the local legend of the Blair Witch who is suspected in the brutal deaths of local children (seriously, whyyyy???). The three disappear, but their footage is found years later.

What unfolds on those tapes is truly spine tingling nope-fodder that will ensure your lack of sleep for the next two weeks. 


9) The Crucible (1996) 😧




The Crucible is a tale of witch hysteria set in 1692 Salem. When young girls begin what seems like a harmless lie about being possessed to do a witches bidding, a small town is ravaged by accusations pitting families and neighbors against one another.

A young woman obsessed with her married lover takes the opportunity to frame his wife for witchcraft, setting forth a devastating chain of events that would have consequences far beyond her intentions.

This is an incredible think-piece movie sure to yield a night of fascinating and thought-provoking conversations. Just add wine!


10) Beautiful Creatures (2013) 😧😍👻





Ethan, a young writer longing to escape his small Southern town, meets the mysterious new girl, Lena. As sparks fly, so do rumors about Lena's family and their peculiar history.

Together they use their bond to uncover the dark secrets their respective families have been hiding from them as they race against the clock to save their doomed love.

With great special effects and a storyline that will have you Facebook stalking your first love, this is sure to be a smash at any teen slumber party!

11) The Skeleton Key (2005) 😧😱

A young hospice nurse starts a new job at a nope-worthy old plantation house in New Orleans. Already we love this! As she gets deeper into the mystery of the house's history and the totally creepy old people begin to freak her TF out, she realizes it might be too late to save herself from the doom of a super hell yes twist!

See. This. Movie. You'll never look at Grandma the same again.


12) Rosemary's Baby (1968) 😱

One of the classics to end all classics, Rosemary's Baby is a hair-raising masterpiece of quite suspense with an ending that will blow your mind!

When a young couple moves into their dream apartment, they're quick to dismiss their super weird neighbors' odd behaviors. When wife Rosemary becomes mysteriously pregnant, and those weirdo neighbors start having some serious boundary issues, paranoia grips the young expectant mother about what dark truths are lurking under the surface of the people she thought she knew.

If you loved House of a Thousand Corpses, then this Rob Zombie flick won't disappoint!

Get ready for quirky fun with this witchy rom-com!

A good-natured witch ready to settled down in the mortal world and disavow her supernatural gifts meets a charming actor in the midst of re-inventing his career with a re-make of the classic movie "Bewitched". When he decides to cast her as his unknown co-star in the role of witch Samantha, hoping to over-shadow her performance, they both get more than they bargained for. Luckily, fate has a funny way of working these things out.

16) Into the Woods (2014) 😧👻🎃

For all the fairytale lovers out there, have I got the movie for you!

When a Baker and his wife wish for something a curse has forbidden them, an opportunistic witch with a secret tasks them with finding magical ingredients to reverse the curse.

This movie is a visual stunner with intertwining storylines from your favorite Grimm's tales, including Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Bean Stalk, Cinderella and more. This contemporary twist on classic beloved fairytales is sure to be a hit with adults and kids alike! Just beware – your children will torture you with songs from this musical on repeat for the rest of your life.


17) Antichrist (2009) 😧😱

Listen. I'm gonna warn you right now that this movie is not for the faint of heart. Never has a film made me feel so unsafe and freaked out!

When a couple suffers a devastating loss and retreats to a cabin in the wilderness in an attempt to heal their grief, they find that the hostile and forbidding nature surrounding them is nothing compared to what lies within them. With disturbing scenes of sexuality and an atmospheric, arthouse quality that will put a fist of dread in your stomach, this film is NSFChildren (or anyone, really).

Watch it! And don't blame me for having to return to therapy after.


18) The Witches (1990) 😱👻🎃

Both adorable and truly terrifying in a way that only 90's kids movies could be, this classic is a must on any Halloween movie list!

When a little boy stumbles upon the dark secret of a coven of witches and is turned into a mouse, he must somehow figure out how to save the world from doom, while navigating a world of nightmare-fodder prosthetics and horrifying cinematic angles.

I mean, how did the early 90's manage to make a close up of french fries so upsetting?


19) Suspiria (2018) 😧😱

A contemporary re-make of the 1977 arthouse cult classic, this visual tour de force does true justice to its predecessor.

When an American ballerina arrives at a renowned Berlin dance company, everything seems like a dream. But when a student is murdered on her first day, her fairytale world of dance is quick transformed into a spiraling nightmare filled with darkness, paranoia and a obsession to find the murky truth that will end in shocking tragedy.


20) The Good Witch (2008) 😍👻🎃

O.M.G. This movie is heartwarming AF! I mean, Hallmark, amiright?

When a woman with a mysterious past opens an occult shop in a small town filled with even smaller minded jerks, rumors start to fly like brooms. When vandalism brings her together with the town sheriff, the two team up to teach the locals about the perils of making assumptions and the true magic that lives in them all.

A movie to make all modern Pagans proud, The Good Witch strips down the stereotypes of dark, evil  witchcraft and illuminates the nature-based spirituality in all its beautiful, natural virtue. I. Love. This. Story!


Now that you're set up with some seriously witchy vibes, grab your potions and brew-skies (I'm so sorry but I had to!), throw on your witch's hat, make some green colored popcorn and prepare for a week and a half of magical binge-watching! You're welcome, my pretties!
