If you came here looking for a fight, you may have just found one. ‘Cause your all-time favorite “The Nightmare Before Christmas” didn’t make this list. Boo whooo you wh*re! Sorry, not sorry?! Cry somewhere else, and argue with yo mama. ‘Cause I finally watched that movie a few days ago, and it’s really not that great y’all. Seriously! Plus it’s a freaking musical? Why didn’t someone warn me? Ugh! But before I go in on y’all favorite … ’cause why did they terrify them children like that with that fake a** Christmas, and them ugly looking toys … here are the best Halloween movies currently streaming on Disney Plus right now.

Best Halloween Movies On Disney Plus

Hocus Pocus

This classic features 3 old witches, who are accidentally conjured up by a few pranksters — and a talking cat. It’s the epitome of Halloween dearie! “Hocus Pocus” has always been a favorite of mine, and it definitely deserves its yearly rewatch.

Hocus Pocus 2

Set almost 30 years after the original, “Hocus Pocus 2” is a fantastic sequel that enlists 3 high school students to stop our favorite *cough* white *cough* devious witches. Some may even say this sequel is better than the original. Some, meaning me, yes — I said it! “Hocus Pocus 2” is now one of my all-time favorite Disney Halloween movies and I can’t wait to watch it again and again!

Yup, if you thought that … ahem, cough, above was weird, it was placed there for good reason. Clearly, I almost choked on the words “favorite”, and “witches”, because for some those 3 crazy ladies above are it. But for US, our favorite witches are featured in our most cherished Halloween film ever, “Twitches“. Featuring our favorite twin sister actress duo — Tia and Tamera — “Twitches” is literally about twin witches, who find out that their strange powers work better, when they work together.

Under Wraps

The new updated 2021 version of “Under Wraps” is actually pretty funny. Beware — it’s definitely a cheesy film made for this new generation of kids. But with a runaway mummy and a cool kid cast, who could resist?! This film is perfect for a Halloween weekend watch.

The Haunted Mansion

This Eddie Murphy movie is a classic. More funny, than scary, “The Haunted Mansion” features Eddie as a work-a-holic dad, who has no choice but to take his family on vacation, because his wife says he’s neglecting the kids. Of course, proving her point, they stop at a house Dad is supposed to sell, only to find out it’s actually haunted! Talk about an escape room, way before its time!

Muppets Haunted Mansion

Not to be confused with the Eddie Murphy classic above, but almost just as terrifyingly good, is Disney’s “Muppets Haunted Mansion”. And I can’t lie — this turned out to be a whole lot more frightening than I expected it to be! While the little ones may have to close their eyes during a few scenes, this movie is insanely entertaining! If you’re looking for a Halloween musical to watch this year, skip that old hag, also known as “The Nightmare Before Christmas”, and watch this!



Halloweentown“, isn’t just another classic Halloween movie about teen witches, it’s also a town where creepy creatures live very normal lives. And I wouldn’t mind visiting for a day or two, just to hang out and make some ghoulish friends.

James and the Giant Peach

You may think this one’s a joke, but I vividly remember being completely creeped out as a kid by “James and the Giant Peach“. I’m not sure what it was about this one, but this was clearly a scary movie made for kids. Argue with yo mama, I said!

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

Directed by Tim Burton, and inspired by the books, “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” is one of the weirdest, but coolest films I’ve ever seen. The film is about a secret world with unusual powers, and it has the right amount of scare factor for Halloween for kids.
