Because of my kids, we've made watching Nightmare Before Christmas a sort of hybrid Halloween-Christmas tradition! It's held up pretty well over the years even with the more sophisticated CGI technology used for the current crop of kids' movies. Aside from that, we like re-watching the original Ghostbusters before launching into its more recent reboot. Hmm, what else...Oh! Also the original Pet Sematary (I hear there's a new one version coming soon?) because I just love the book!

As for TV shows, will probably look through what Netflix is offering. I agree with you though, the new Sabrina series looks pretty exciting!

Thanks for the heads up on The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina! I wasn’t very interested in it at the start because I was a big fan of the 90s sitcom one (with Melissa Joan Hart) because I was a college kid back then and thought it was hilarious (talking black cat puppet and all). But when I started watching it - boy, was I hooked! I liked how it linked the witch-hunting of the past with the present-day with the hunting of those who don’t quite fit in what a lot of people think is “normal”. Even my teenage daughter loves it and is now planning her Halloween costume around Sabrina’s red lace-collared dress!

I also like that while it’s a series that takes its cue from teenage references, it has genuinely scary moments that give you pause. Scary, like jumpscare-type scary and gory scenes galore, but also real-life issues that make a lot of us truly afraid in the society we’re currently in. I think this is a brave new TV series and hope it has more seasons to follow.

As for all-time favorite Halloween movies I like to re-watch, I have the following on my list: 30 Days of Night, Suspiria (the original one), Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Hotel Transylvania (gotta mix it up with some kid-friendly stuff!), and What They Do In The Shadows (best vampire movie ever in my honest opinion) are always good to revisit!

Looks like I’m late to the party! But even so, Halloween movies make pretty good viewing even after the holiday (the cold Christmas weather is perfect for epic Halloween movie sessions).

I recently watched Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, like Janine did. It was sooooo good. No, not just good. It was awesome. A lot of haters say that the show was “too millennial” and tried to force-feed diversity, but screw them. Sabrina is a good show because it told a great story. And anyone can appreciate a good story, whether they’re millennials, gen xers, or part of the undead.

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina isn’t campy… it’s actually pretty edgy, and is a horror movie in its own right. Highly recommended regardless of the season!

I also recommend What We Do in The Shadows, it’s a “mockumentary” about Vampires living in New Zealand. It’s easily the funniest movie I’ve seen. It’s also got a surprising amount of heart – both literally and figuratively! There were some truly scary scenes, but it’s an overall pretty feel-good movie. It’s definitely different from established vampire movies like Twilight (ugh) and the Vampire Chronicles (I’m old). If anything, I think What We Do in The Shadows is one of the best vampire movie in existence! (Apologies to fans of Anne Rice and Bram Stoker).
