31 Graves of Halloween – 2020

If there’s one thing that can soothe the terrifying reality that is 2020, it has to be the greatest holiday of all — Halloween! Welcome back to the annual 31 Graves of Halloween, our carefully curated watchlists for every single spooky day of October. With a pandemic still raging across the world and the cool autumnal weather setting in, it’s the perfect time to be at home under the covers, grab a hot drink, and watch horror movies.

As always, you can find links to the movies on our lists below for more information. If you’re feeling particularly daring, you can follow along with one – or both – of our lists, and if you have your own, please share it with us via private message or in the comments below!

To check out our lists from previous years: 31 Graves of Halloween


Barnabas (Keeping with tradition, the films below marked (NEW) will be those that I haven’t seen before, and the rest are classics that I’m itching to revisit. The list is about half new viewings and half old ones because even though Halloween can be an excellent time to revisit those fun, old horror flicks, it’s also a great opportunity to diversify your movie knowledge!

There are also a few movies on this list that are holdovers from last year because I didn’t get the chance to watch them. I also did not set a viewing order this year, so that I could easily pick what I wanted to watch each day.)
