Why Do Halloween Movies Matter?

The original "Halloween" movie is one of the most popular and scariest horror movies released 45 years ago. This nerve-frying thriller quickly became the most successful independent movie of all time, which eventually set the bar for horror movies.

Watching Halloween movies can trigger chemicals in our brains to help everyone plan for worst-case scenarios and practice coping strategies. Every year, American people gather to light bonfires, wear Halloween costumes to ward off ghosts and watch spooky movies.

How to Watch Halloween Movies in Order?

The Halloween movies date back to 1978, introducing Michael Myers as the ultimate villain. If you haven't yet watched the Halloween series, we will introduce the order of Halloween movies to help you make the most of this slasher favorite.

Halloween (1978)

The first movie in the series introduces the villain story of Micheal Myers and his first victim (his six-year-old sister), his 15-year stay at a mental health facility, and his escape from the said facility. The movie also introduces his second victim, Laurie Strode (Jamie).

Halloween II (1981)

Michael doesn't give up easily, and it was clearly revealed when Laurie thought she was safe after avenging herself, but not. This movie unveils the biggest secret of all secrets about why Micheal won't stop coming after Laurie.

Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers (1998)

This Halloween movie mixes up things, so it's best to watch the Halloween movies in order. Here, Micheal wakes up from a coma and gets right to business. While Micheal's been asleep for over a decade, Laurie gains a chosen family and community of friends who all have her back.

Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers (1989)

The town brutally attacked Michael in the last movie, and now it's time for revenge. Laurie finds out that Micheal is awake but seeks the help of his child psychologist.

Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers (1995)

Jamie gives birth to a baby, but this happens six years after she is kidnapped by the cult. Though Jamie is seen making efforts to escape, she is seen dead. The good news is that her baby survives and is rescued by Tommy.

Halloween H20: 20 Years Later (1998)

It turns out that Jamie was playing dead this entire time — to escape the wrath of Micheal. But Micheal is too brilliant to get fooled by anyone's game.

Halloween Resurrection (2002)

Finally, Michael catches Laurie — killing her off for good. But the show is not over — when a group of college kids break into Michael's house, he shows them why it's not okay to mess with him.

Halloween (2018)

It's the sequel to Halloween (1978) and reimagines the story of what happened when Michael was in the mental hospital.

Halloween Kills (2021)

Laurie Strode is almost burned alive before she is rushed to the hospital. Laurie and the rest of Strode's girls are going to battle, and they do not want to lose.

Halloween Ends (2022)

This time, we think things might have come to an end when Laurie is seen living a private life with her daughter. Michael is back again, but the movie ends when Laurie and her granddaughter finally kill Micheal (We think!).

Halloween (2007)

This is an entirely different film with a storyline that centers around the history of Michael's wrath and his childhood murders.

Halloween II (2009)

Watch this movie as a sequel to Halloween (2007), where we see Michael has some "family matters" to take care of when he visions his sister Laurie.

Halloween III: Season of the Witch (1982)

This is the only film in which you won't see Michael and his wrath. The famous Halloween mask gathers attention due to the microchip that makes kids do unspeakable things, and a certain duo must stop it.

The Top 5 Halloween Movies for Adults

Halloween comes once a year, but if you want to make the most of it — here is the ultimate Halloween movie list to scare the crap out of you.

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974)

If you haven't yet watched Tobe Hooper's criminally underrated classic, add this Halloween movie to your list. It's one of the darkest masterpieces of the 70s and the scariest movie ever made.

It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (1966)

This true classic is one of the perfect Halloween movies for adults. Snoopy and the gang have been getting everyone into the Halloween spirit for more than 50 years. Get ready to relive the childhood memories with the animation.

Hocus Pocus (1993)

If you're confused about which Halloween movie to watch, you can never go wrong with the famous Hocus Pocus. The family-friendly movie stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Bette Midler, and Kathy Najimy as three witches.

Trick 'r Treat (2007)

This clever combo from writer-director Michael Dougherty is an anthology film. The Halloween movie moves in fits and starts, but when it hits — especially in the prime segment that features Dylan Baker as a school principal moonlighting as a serial killer — it becomes great.

The Return of the Living Dead (1985)

The Halloween movie has changed zombie cinema forever by introducing the undead's hunger for human brains, Alien scribe Dan O'Bannon's punk-rock zom-com.

The Top 5 Kid-Friendly Halloween Movies

If you have kids at home who want to lean into the horror of Halloween, here is a round-up of some kid-friendly, spooky Halloween movies.


While Coco isn't an outright Halloween film, it does take place in the Land of the Dead on the Day of the Dead. The movie follows Miguel, who dreams of becoming a successful artist even after his family's ban on music.

Spirited Away

Spirited Away is a famous kid-friendly fairy tale that often leaves viewers more curious and fascinated by the world.

Monsters, Inc

Monsters, Inc. is a clever, honey, and delightful Halloween movie for kids. The film is based in the largest scare factory in the monster world.

Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit

The Curse of the Were-Rabbit is one of the subtly touching and wonderfully eccentric adventures. The movie features Wallace and his dog, Gromit, who are on a mission to track the beast and then rescue the village.

The Nightmare Before Christmas

This 1993 stop-motion animated musical classic is directed by Henry Selick and Tim Burton. You'll find the iconic character of Jack Skellington (the Pumpkin King of Halloweentown), who accidentally stumbles across the concept of Christmas and attempts to take over the holiday.

How to Host A Spooky Halloween Movie Night?

If you plan the spookiest Halloween movie night where adults can enjoy a movie party and kids do the trick and treat, here are the simple steps to host a spooky Halloween night.

Step 1: Pick a Movie Night Theme

Halloween-themed movie nights require the right (or creepy) theme, like Haunted House, Murder Mystery, or Ghost Bash. You can also dress up with creepy makeup and costumes.

Step 2: Set Up the Movie Experience

It's time to get a movie screen, decoration lights, and a projector. You can pair a movie projector with a large (or extra large) inflatable screen for a perfect outdoor experience.

Make sure you carry a portable charging solution like Jackery Solar Generators to charge the projector, movie screen, and space heater for a comfortable movie experience.

Step 3: Play Some Creepy Music

You can choose a pre-made playlist that aligns well with your movie night's age, vibe, and theme. You can even add outdoor speakers to your list to create a surround sound experience.

Step 4: Prepare Spooky Food

Scary definitely doesn't mean hungry. You must prepare some Halloween treats for yourself and your guests. You can even purchase Halloween-themed baskets, cups, and plates for a playful experience.

Final Thoughts

A successful Halloween movie party includes choosing the right movie, theme, and food and beverages. In addition to carrying all the necessary electric appliances, you'll need a portable charging solution like Jackery Solar Generators. They combine Jackery Explorer Portable Power Stations and SolarSaga Solar Panels to convert the sun's energy into electricity and charge most Halloween appliances.
