Halloween time may look a lot different to most of us here in 2020, but we can still observe some of the most important traditions – like settling down to watch our favorite spooky movies, which he says. Whether it’s charming classics for the family or bite-sized horror shows But there are so many fantastic movies suited to the season that choosing what to watch can get overwhelming – especially if you’re like us and that you’ve been browsing your favorite scary movies for the duration of the quarantine lockdown

But if so, have no fear We’re here to help We’ve narrowed down a list that focuses on a very specific subgenre of Scary Season favorites: Witch Movies These Movies vary in grading and tone, ranging from fun for all ages to incredibly traumatic, so you’ll have no problem finding something that matches exactly the speed you’re looking for as you face the annoyance of not being able to attend your favorite Halloween party or go for a run in a haunted attraction with friends

This mid-’90s classic was the model for a whole generation of alternative children From the iconic ‘we’re the odd ones, sir’ line to the oddly specific and supernatural revenge fantasies of high school, The Craft is a wonderful look (although dated) on the teenage witches subgenre that will never go out of style

The two versions of Suspira will give you a very different witch experience, so what you choose really depends on your preferences.The 1977 version is arguably a more artistic and stylized version of the story, but the 2018 version has Tilda Swinton Both are the story of a witch-controlled dance academy

If The Craft is the role model for teenage witches, The Covenant was the same for a coven of boys Set in a prestigious private school housing four descendants of colonial witches, The Covenant might be a bit campy now, but that well worth a watch It also features a pre-winter soldier Sebastian Stan as one of the main antagonists, if you’re looking for another excuse

Come on, don’t pretend you haven’t seen this one before Arguably the most classic witch movie of all time, Hocus Pocus is a Halloween staple If you haven’t already eliminated your annual re-observation, now is the time

Blending light horror with romance and drama, Practical Magic is a witchy flick for people who want something a little less terrifying than something like Suspiria but a little more serious than something like Hocus. Pocus Sanda Bullock and Nicole Kidman play two sisters battling their family’s curse

The found movie that sparked the entire craze, The Blair Witch Project, may technically not have witches onscreen, but we’re still going to count it to your liking (and your ability to not have evil transport by looking at found footage), this might be one of the scariest movies on this list and it still holds up today There was also a sequel, subtitled Book Of Shadows, and a third installment called The Blair Witch which you can also check out – although your mileage may vary on either one.

About as traditional as a witch movie you’ll ever get, The VVItch is a super sleek slow-burn movie set in Colonial times It’s also the birthplace of Black memes Phillip « would you like to live deliciously », which you probably saw even if you didn’t watch the movie

The whole Conjuring franchise is worth checking out during the Halloween season, but only the first movie can actually fall under the witch movie umbrella A fictional story of two real-life paranormal investigators, Ed and Lorraine Warren, this movie tells the story of a house haunted by the restless spirit of a witch who owned it

Okay, support us on this one, because if you didn’t know the Wizard of Oz had sequels, you’re gonna take a ride In this movie, Dorothy is sent to an asylum (not really) and subjected to electroconvulsive therapy (not really), after her aunt is convinced that her trips to Oz are delusions Dorothy eventually escapes via another trip to Oz, but the scenery isn’t exactly what she gets away from. remembers Glinda and Elphaba are no longer and instead the country is ruled by a new witch named Mombi who beheads her subjects with magic, which allows her to remove her own head and replace it with that of her victims Also, it’s a children’s movie, sort of Just Watch

On a much lighter note, Angela Landsburry’s cult classics Bedknobs and Broomsticks probably won’t terrify you, but it will bring that kind of weird and weird weirdness that comes from live-action / animation C ‘hybrids. is also a musical, which should earn him some points

This reimagining of the classic fable is imbued with a creepy, surreal style that’s probably a bit slower and more subtle pace than your traditional Halloween movie, but if you’re a fan of fantastic and disturbing imagery – and cannibalistic witches, of course – it’s for you

This British horror film borrows its witch tradition from Scandinavian folklore Don’t Knock Twice is to accidentally summon the wrath of Baba Yaga, a demonic witch who traditionally lives in a house perched on chicken thighs, but in this story, lives in the only « occupied » house in a spooky neighborhood

Drag Me To Hell has earned a place of honor among horror fans as a cult classic, in part thanks to its writer / director, the legendary Sam Raimi This one is less of a straightforward witch movie and more focused on the fallout of a curse placed on its main characters by a witch, but like The Blair Witch Project, we can’t help but include it

Another family offering, The Witches was recently remade for HBO Max, but we’re going to recommend that you stick with the classics on this one and go for the 1990 version, starring Anjelica Huston. ‘a bunch of scrappy kids battling a coven of evil witches who hate kids who turn them into mice, and it’s just the right mix of creepy and cute

Did you know that George Miller – Mad Max George Miller – directed a dark comedy about witches starring Cher, Susan Sarandon, Michille Pfeiffer and Jack Nicholson? Now you do If you’re more in the mood for 80s humor than horror, try this one

Finally, for anyone looking to celebrate the spooky season with some vintage romance, the 1958 romantic comedy Bell, Book and Candle features the Golden Age of Hollywood stars like Kim Novak, Jack Lemmon and James Stewart Il is about a witch who casts a love spell on a neighbor and while it might not be terrifying, it is really charming
