New Fall & Halloween Movies 2017

October 8, 2017


Movies are the best way to get into the fall/Halloween spirit. I love putting on a movie while I'm decorating, crafting or cleaning. There are of course tons of amazing classics like Hocus Pocus, Beetlejuice, Halloween, etc., but I'm always on the lookout for brand new flicks to watch. It's part of the excitement of the season for me.

I've scoured the Internet to find all the new movies in theaters and for rent during September and October. As always, if I'm missing anything, let me know!

Note that most of them are standard horror movies, not necessarily related to fall or Halloween itself. I added a special note to the few movies that actually happen in the fall or during Halloween.
