Break out the Netflix DVDs or On Demand, because it’s time to watch (or rewatch!) our favorite Halloween movies. These one’s aren’t available for streaming as of right now, but are worth the extra effort to see.

It isn’t Halloween without at least a dozen mentions of fan-favorite Hocus Pocus. The Disney movie from 1993 stars Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy as evil witches who have to be stopped by three kids to prevent the witches from living forever.
