Ranging from slightly spooky to full on scary. 

ByCaitlin U.

It's that wonderful time of year, the time when the weather cools off a bit, the leaves start to change color, and you just get to cuddle up on the couch with a good... horror movie. Ha! You thought we were going to say book, didn't you? No, but all tricks aside, scary movies hold a special place in our hearts—in a pounding, racing sort of way. And even if you aren't a total scary movie fan, but enjoy a mild spook, there are some titles you can enjoy this season too.

Take a look at our list of the top 10 Halloween movies to watch from now until All Hallows Eve Night—or binge away and watch them all in a weekend, no judgement! Just be sure to have the popcorn handy and sprinkle some good ole' candy corn on top for a festive, sweet and salty treat. Here's our top 10 Halloween movies starting with the not-so-scary and ending with the downright terrifying: 

1. Monster House

Start off with an animated flick about a trio of kids who must find a way to destroy a neighborhood haunted house before innocent trick-or-treaters meet ghastly ends.
