    I Watched Every Single Halloween-Themed Disney Channel Original Movie — Here Are The Best (and Worst) Ones

    If you disagree with the winner, we can't be friends.

    Let's be honest, one of the best parts of celebrating Halloween are the Halloween-themed movies.

    Well, with Halloween just a week away, it felt like the right time to watch every single Halloween-themed Disney Channel Original Movie.

    Or DCOM, for short. Grab some friends, carve some pumpkins, and ride a sweet wave of nostalgia, because I am ranking the best of the best:

    10. Return to Halloweentown

    Sara Paxton wears a crown and smiles as Marnie Piper in "Return to Halloween"

    9. Twitches 2

    Tia and Tamera Mowry as Alex and Camryn in "Twitches" cheer for themselves while sitting at a table with family.

    8. Halloweentown II: Kalabar's Revenge

    Top: Judith Hoag as Gwen Piper discovers that her date is a golem and expresses disbelief in "Halloweentown II: Kalabar's Revenge" Bottom: Peter Wingfield as Alex, dressed as a frog, acquiesces to Gwen's statement in "Halloweentown II: Kalabar's Revenge"
    Daniel Kountz as Kal hands Marnie a rose and expresses satisfaction at meeting her in "Halloweentown II: Kalabar's Revenge"

    You're watching Hauntober on Disney Channel, up next is Kal with the most terrifying come on I've ever seen.

    Anyways, it turns out that Kal is actually the son of Kalabar, the antagonist of the first Halloweentown movie. Now it's up to Marnie and her grandmother to save Halloweentown.

    MEANWHILE, Marnie’s mom, Gwen, who is absolutely in the top 5 list of the Hottest Disney Channel Moms (A list for another time), is settling for Kal’s pretend father, who turns out to be A PILE OF FROGS. Insane. 

    This movie is equal parts fun and nostalgic, with some spooky moments, an overall Halloween vibe, and a villain that makes you ask yourself: "Who was having sex with Kalabar?". If you’ve just finished the first Halloweentown and you want to keep the party going, I’d recommend checking this out.

    7. Girl vs. Monster

    Top: Brendan Meyer as Henry stands up to his bully in "Girl vs. Monster" Bottom: Olivia Holt as Skylar sings into a microphone and raises her arm up at an outdoor party as costumed guests dance in the background in "Girl vs. Monster"

    6. Mom's Got a Date With a Vampire

    Charles Shaughnessy as Dimitri Denatos holds the back of his head as he looks away angrily with fangs growing out of his mouth in "Mom's Got a Date with a Vampire"

    5. The Scream Team

    Top: Eric Idle as Coffin Ed holds his palms up beside his head while his eyes bulge out and his open mouth reveals the hallway behind him while his tongue sticks out in "The Scream Team" Bottom: Kat Dennings as Claire Carlyle expresses reservations

    4. Twitches

    Top: Tamera Mowry as Camryn Barnes excitedly questions Tia Mowry as Alex Fielding if they are sisters in "Twitches" Bottom: Tia Mowry as Alex Fielding admonishes Tamera Mowry as Camryn Barnes in "Twitches"
