Movies to watch around Halloweenby crimefightingchicken | created - 04 Sep 2019 | updated - 1 month ago | Public
Some aren't movies I love, and others might not be directly Halloween related. All good movies to watch around October, regardless. I probably wont put the classic Universal monster movies on this list.
