We recently asked members of the BuzzFeed Community to tell us which movie never fails to get them in the autumn mood. Here are some of their most popular responses...

1. You've Got Mail (1998)

Warner Bros.

"Beautiful shots of Manhattan, the fall festival scene, and a cozy bookstore. Plus Tom Hanks offering to send bouquets of sharpened pencils to Meg Ryan makes me want to curl up in my favourite sweater with a mug of hot cider and a great book." – caitt4de1439cc

2. Practical Magic (1998)

Warner Bros.

"The setting alone makes you pine for cooler weather and the magic of the movie gets you ready for Halloween. Who doesn't want to cuddle up with a cauldron and tune in?" – Sarah Shipman, Facebook


12. Edward Scissorhands (1990)

20th Century Fox

"I have fond memories of watching it in my brother’s room in the dark, wrapped up in a cozy blanket, drinking pumpkin spice lattes, and eating the Hostess cakes my mom would buy me. It always puts me in the mood for autumn." turntablesmicrophone

14. The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)

Walt Disney Pictures

"Since it came out, my brothers and I have always watched it around the time school started. Now we’re all grown and still do it separately. The nice thing is that it’s seasonally appropriate to watch all the way through to Christmas." l4cc479c84

15. Mystic Pizza (1988)

The Samuel Goldwyn Company

"My mom always watched this when I was little. I match up fall and this movie in my head, and when it starts getting cold outside I have a weird urge to find this movie and watch it." – kyled476a98496


18. Tanner Hall (2009)

Anchor Bay Films

"It’s an indie flick with Brie Larson and Rooney Mara about four friends in a boarding school in New England. As pretentious as it may be, the leaves on the ground and the old Ivy League-esque school grounds make me want to pull out my tartan scarves and go to an apple orchard." gillab


21. Trick 'r Treat (2007)

Warner Bros.

"It's the perfect scary horror movie to get you into the mood for autumn. Three stories are all interwoven together. They remind me a lot of the old Tales From the Crypt or Tales From the Darkside. I watch it a couple of times a year at least but it really gets me excited for fall, Halloween, and scary stuff." – Lisasimpsonfan

23. October Sky (1999)

Universal Pictures

"I remember watching it in school every autumn. It’s inspiring and heartbreaking and has the makings of a great film. It was also when my awkward middle school self fell in love with Jake Gyllenhaal." Rachel S
