Halloween movies on this list because it appeals to audiences of all ages, although it might be a bit too creepy for some.
‘The Ghost and Mrs. Muir’ – The ghost in this movie isn’t the terrifying kind you’ll often find in Halloween horror movies, but a salty old sailor keeping a lonely woman company. It’s funny, romantic, and one of the strangest love stories you’ll ever see, but somehow this bizarre tale of a love that transcends two worlds just works.
‘I Married a Witch’ – Witches are a favorite subject of Halloween horror movies, but the one in this film definitely isn’t going to scare you away. Veronica Lake is part witch, part pinup girl in one of the most romantic movies you’ll ever see about her kind with one of the strangest love stories, and it almost seems as if she really did have to use some kind of magic to look the way she does in this film.
‘Cat People’ – This is one of the more tragic love stories on this list, but it’s one of the best movies you can watch on Halloween. It’s not as romantic as other movies on this list, focusing on a beautiful woman whose love life suffers because she might be cursed to turn into a giant black cat. And you thought your love life was horrible!
‘Ghost’ – It’s often considered one of the most romantic movies of all time, but it’s one of those supernatural love stories that’s perfect for Halloween. And pottery class was never the same after this movie.
‘King Kong’ – This is just one of your typical love stories: gigantic monster ape falls in love with beautiful blonde and flees to the top of the Empire State building with her. It may not be very romantic, but this is one of those movies that you must see sometime in your life, and Halloween is a good time to do it.
‘An American Werewolf in London’ – There’s a moral to this story, Team Jacobers; it’s never a good idea to fall in love with a werewolf. This is definitely not one of the most romantic movies you’ll ever see, with one of those little love stories that’s just thrown in on the side, but it’s a more realistic tale of werewolf romance. It’s also one of the greatest (but goriest) Halloween horror movies you can see, and a cult classic.
‘Practical Magic’ – This is one of the sweeter romantic Halloween movies you can see, about a cursed witch that tries to deny herself the perfect guy, thinking she’ll never meet him. But of course she does. Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman are both fun to watch in another of the great witch love stories, and both of them make very sexy sorceresses.
‘Bride of Frankenstein’ – When it comes to horror movies, love stories don’t always turn out so well. When Dr. Frankenstein creates a bride for his monster, it’s obvious that she’s way out of his league. The result? Well, everyone dies. So it’s a tragic love story, but one that’s perfect for watching on Halloween.
So if you want to watch some different movies on Halloween, don’t just look for great horror movies; attempt to see the softer side of ghosts, witches, and monsters with these spooky love stories.
