I'm still holding out hope for a Hocus Pocus sequel.

Rocky Horror FTW! Also, speaking of Tim Curry, everyone should see The Worst Witch.

Here's the thing. How is Edward Scissorhands a Halloween movie? Because Tim Burton made it? That's a horrible reason. If anything it's a Christmas movie, because it takes place at...oh my gosh...CHRISTMAS!!! Why do humans keep thinking it's a Halloween movie? Because you want to believe Edward is scary? No. It's a Christmas movie, humanity.

Loved 15 Halloween Movies for Wimps so I linked the article to my current post at NinjaBaking.com entitled 21 Ways to Savor a Grownup Halloween. Thank you so much, Becky, for remembering that not all of us want to be scared completely out of our wits on Halloween.

also forgot "The Scream Team", "Halloweentown",  "Tower of Terror", and "Corpse Bride".

Nice list but, Sleepy Hollow is missing. And the new Halloween classic for me is Trick 'R Treat... It's the perfect Halloween movie because, there are references to many myths surrounding Halloween!!

i thought shaun of the dead was pretty scary too. Beetlejuice I actually just rewatched a couple weeks ago and the claymation and effects are pretty cheasy now so it's not as scary :-) We're going as Jack and Sally from TNBC this halloween, can't wait!

I love horror movies, but I still adore this list-- nothing like a classic, feel-good Halloween movie :) (especially the old Sleepy Hollow, I still LOVE that movie!) Beetlejuice should replace Shaun of the Dead on the list. I could still see Shaun of the Dead freaking a few people out, even if it does include some comedy.

I love Practical Magic! I can't even count how many times I've seen it. I would have added The Corpse Bride as well since it's in the same vein as other Tim Burton classics
