Just like other major holidays, Halloween comes with a large array of movies and T.V. specials. Since Halloween is the basis of all things scary and dark, it is safe to assume that all horror movies can be considered All Hallow’s Eve specials. But they aren’t.
Halloween specials only come on your television program once a year, and probably show only once on a specific channel. For example you can watch ABC Families’ Thirteen Nights of Halloween.
Listed below are 10 of the most watched Halloween specials that aren’t horror movies.
1. “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” – A movie for politically inclined individuals and their unsuspecting children!
2. “Hocus Pocus” – A movie for the hard-core witches.
3. “Halloween Town” – A Disney Channel original!
4.”The Rocky Horror Picture Show” – A musical that is sure to make you scream.
5. Raggedy Anne and Andy’s “The Pumpkin Who Couldn’t Smile” – A super cute rendition of pumpkin carving gone wrong.
6. “Casper the Friendly Ghost” – A story of friendship even after death.
7. “The Nightmare Before Christmas” – An interesting take on an animated musical with fun characters, like Jack Skellington.
8. “The Adam’s Family” – A family favorite that anyone can relate to.
9. “Corpse Bride” – A romantic comedy.
10. The “Scary Movie” Series – A parody that embodies the essence of all horror movies.
If you can think of any I missed, because I must have missed about a hundred, please drop a line in the comments! People are always looking to grow their list of fun holiday specials!
