It’s that time of year again!  Fall. Leaves change color, weather turns colder, and coffee shops change their seasonal coffees.  Seasonal movies are rotating, no longer the hot summers with numerous beach scenes, but to crisp afternoons back to school with the trees changing. The best thing to do in these changing times is to sit down, grab your pumpkin spice latte and your apple cider donut, and watch a movie to put you into the mood of autumn. I will be your guide to find the best fall movies to get you into the spirit of red, orange, and yellow―the color of the ever-changing leaves.

If you are in the mood for a spooky subset of films, I recommend the classics: Halloween, Nightmare On Elm Street, or even Scream. They provide a good scare and have a pretty good plot. If you are feeling adventurous, you can watch the hundreds of sequels and remakes. They may not be as good, but they will give you a solid spooky storyline. If you just wanna enjoy your Halloween and feel alone in your house, you can watch movies such as Beetlejuice, Casper, Hocus Pocus, Halloweentown, or Ghostbusters. These movies don’t provide adrenaline-rushing scares, but they will bring back a sense of nostalgia and will definitely put you in the mood of fall. Moreover, they give you good laughs and, dare I say, leave you in a good mood after you watch them. If you are looking for more of just a fall or Thanksgiving movie, I recommend Good Will Hunting, Planes, Trains, and Automobiles, or It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown.  These movies give you some wholesome moments and some sad moments. They’re good movies that happen to either take place in autumn or partially in autumn. 

It’s fall time everyone! Grab your light blankets, steaming apple cider, and some buttery popcorn because it’s movie time. All these movies are sure to keep you in the fall spirit and get you ready for Halloween. At 12:00 on November 1st, I’m tearing down my Halloween decorations and puttin’ up that Christmas tree and making another movie list.  Have a good fall y’all!
