Everyone has kid favorites
Hocus pocus
Nightmare before Christmas and other such
But how about lesser known more adult favorites?
Some of mine are
The Company of Wolves ( 1984)
Ssssss (1973)
I know both of these are lesser known than most but i enjoy them. Company of wolves is great for a grown up fairy tale fan. Its basically a bunch of short stories of fairy tale fashion but for adults.
Ssssss is more for a scifi crowd that prefers the labs of dr Frankenstein to space stuff.
What are some of yours?

I have too many, in the past I have watched 1 to 2 each day in October and still not gotten through them all. But the ones I try to watch every year are Trick’R’Treat, the conjuring, and a Friday the 13th movie.

These would be on my Halloween watching menu: :-)

-Hocus Pocus
-Young Frankenstein
-Krampus
-The Haunted Mansion (yes, that "The Haunted Mansion." I know, bite me. :P)
-Hotel Transylvania
-Beetlejuice
-The Nightmare Before Christmas
-Let the Right One In (I like the American adaptation too but I still prefer the original by a small margin)
-Ghostbusters (the original, I'm not crazy about the remake but I don't hate it like everyone else seems to :/ )
-Casper
-Corpse Bride
-Anastasia (technically not a Halloween movie but it has enough creepy moments to qualify for my list)
-A Nightmare on Elm Street
-Any "REAL" horror movie... preferably gore-lite. :P

Carnival of Souls at least to me was very eerie when I first watched it. I don't want to give away too much. But the way music and make up was used for that movie..brought shivers the first few times around.

I Sell the Dead was a major lol. Some of my favorite things about it were the lighting and angles used for various scenes. Plus, if I remember correctly some of the jokes were funny too.

Bram Stoker's Dracula is a classic...again trying not to give away too much but Van Helsing was hilarious and some of the cinematography was also brilliant especially in some of the scenes with..I believe it was Lucy.

Yes, Bram Stoker’s Dracula does have a lot of really nice cinematography in it. And Anthony Hopkins does a fantastic job as Van Helsing. He was the highlight of the movie for me. Some people don’t like that they leaned heavily into the romance aspect of the whole thing, but overall I consider it one of, if not the best adaptations of the original novel.

The Others. Not particularly horrific but it's a nice, slow burn with a fantastic ending

A nightmare before Christmas creeps me out more than a lot of scary movies, to be honest.

That and any Killer Clowns movies

One that I like and is SUPER niche is Dead Alive. It was produced in New Zealand by Peter Jackson and is just a GOREY slapstick zombie comedy movie. By far the most out there movie I've seen that was actually in theatres and released on DVD. Give it a try if you haven't already. It's disgusting. But yeah, The Nightmare before Christmas was a good one too. Love Jack Skellington.
