20 Halloween Movies to Watch for Girls' Night

Every year I try to host a "spooky movie" night for girlfriends. We all come in comfy clothes, bring a delicious Halloween sweet or savory treat to share, and enjoy a spooky movie together. The movies range from the fun Halloween movies like Hocus Pocus to the truly spooky like What Lies Beneath. Some years we are braver than others! We don't go for the gory or the bloody - no slasher movies here. I like my Halloween movies to spook me and play with my mind just a little bit.

So, let's run down 20 Halloween movies that are perfect for watching for a girls' movie night with friends with treats and comfy clothes!

{1} The Skeleton Key - Kate Hudson gets mixed up with a hoodoo house in the Bayou with a dark past.

{2} What Lies Beneath - When Claire starts hearing and seeing a mysterious woman her husband, Dr. Norman Spencer dismisses her as delusional. However, Claire discovers that terrible truth.

{3} The Woman in Black - A recently widowed layer is sent a remote village to put the affairs of a deceased eccentric in order. He soon discovers that the house is haunted and the village is hiding a terrible secret.

{5} The Others - A devoutly religious mother lives on the English coast with her two children awaiting news of her husband after World War II. Both children have a rare disease where the sun harms them and so they only have contact with the house staff. When the young daughter starts seeing ghosts, her mother thinks the staff is just playing tricks on them, but she soon comes to suspect something supernatural has occurred.
