45 Fun Halloween Weekend Movies!

Whether you’re a Halloween fan or not, chances are–if you’re like me–you enjoy a good thriller, alien invasion tale, maybe a zombie or vampire flick here and there, and even the occasional iconic monster movie — if it’s clever, thoughtful or funny, and light on the gore and violence. So here (below) are some suggestions (note: many are family-friendly, but not all–read the captions!). And I’ll admit up front–if you haven’t seen my family-friendly “cult classic comedyNotzilla yet–I’d love it if you got together with friends or fam and enjoyed it this weekend! It’s available at Amazon Prime (you don’t have to be a subscriber), Roku, TubiTV, and many other streaming sources, as well as through most cable and satellite providers (and on DVD via Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, and more). Enjoy!

  1. Hey Mitch…I took a peek at Notzilla. Great casting. Great music. Full of suspence and thrills. You should be in Hollywood on the big screen. Are you?

    Cool! Saw the trailer for Notzilla….might catch it. I do like the less family friendly ones like Interview with The Vampire, Queen of the Dam*** and Salem’s lot. Have you seen Dark Shadows with Johnny Depp?

    Some of my favorites listed! Shaun of the Dead and Zombieland are excellent but Young Frankenstein has to be my all time favorite… I’ll have to check out the others – some I’ve seen and others I haven’t!

    I’m going to watch Notzilla! Yay! I love the selection, Mitch. Recently I watched the series, “Dracula” on Netflix (2020). I’m a movie person so rarely do I watch series (except The Walton’s, Little House, Andy Griffith, and the Carol Burnett Show, lol). It was very well done; beautiful cinemotography and plot twists. I’ll watch Sleepy Hollow too! I hope you both have a hauntingly happy Halloween!

    Fellow Mitch followers: I vote for Notzilla! You won’t find a cuter monster, and you’ll be able to sleep just fine after this flick. (Plus it’s fun to watch for Mitch’s and his wife’s cameo appearances here and there throughout the film!)

  14. Not knowing the full extent of your film creds, Mitch, maybe I had better not badmouth “Plan 9”. Anyway, congrats re your being Notzilla’s producer, director, writer and cameo actor. Re your film gallery, Forbidden, Blob and Day the Earth Stood Still are my faves. Re Day, have you ever considered how, by telling Helen how to “calm” Gort, Klaatu crippled his entire robotic police force; i.e., unless he eventually changed their “safeword”?

      Interesting thought, Tom. I always saw it as an act of trust, his recognition that at least some humans could be trusted.

      • Hmm, trust you say? Considering the disturbing shift of mores (from 1951 to 2021), were Day’s screenplay written today, its author would likely portray Helen as mean-spirited, power-hungry, opportunistic and tech savvy. So much so, she’d use / abuse her knowledge of that “Klaatu barada nikto” command to hack into Gort’s OS and order him to attack Klaatu. At that juncture, she’d commandeer his flying saucer and stage a coup to overthrow all earthbound and interstellar governments.

  15. E.T. is an excellent choice and Harry Potter is also a good one for those family nights. Great list all around Mitch, thanks for sharing!
