A classic Disney Channel Monstober movie filled with monster hunting, possession, and original music ("Had Me @ Hello" was a bop and no one can tell me otherwise).

2. Fun Size (2012)

This movie follows Victoria Justice's character, Wren, as she tries to have the traditional teen Halloween and is ruined when she has to take her younger troublemaker brother trick-or-treating and loses him in a sea of kids. Full of unexpected chaos and teen humor, this movie blew me away as a preteen.

3. Monster House (2006)

As a kid, this was the scariest movie I've ever seen. It's an animated movie following comedic preteens as they discover a creepy, sentient house with its shining window eyes and bared floorboard teeth. This movie gave me nightmares, but I still had to watch it every Halloween.

4. Mostly Ghostly (2008)

Broadcasted on Disney Channel every Halloween season, this movie is a childhood favorite. Written by R.L. Stine, the Halloween king, the movie is filled with familiar Disney Channel faces, such as Madison Pettis, and many meddling ghosts. Not to mention one of the creepiest looking antagonists in a kids' movie.

5. The Boy Who Cried Werewolf (2010)

Another Victoria Justice Halloween movie that made every kid want to become a werewolf. This comedy horror follows Jordan and Hunter as their family inherits a castle in Romania and they encounter wolfish changes. Brooke Shield's character, Madame Varcolac, takes the cake for me just for the accent alone.

6. And finally, My Babysitter's a Vampire (2010)

This movie plays into the Twilight craze that was at its peak and created a campy parody for kids. With unique characters, tween humor, and a packed plot, this movie went on to create an incredible TV series.
