Especially if the weather is feeling a little dreary, a Halloween spent indoors watching films actually sounds pretty perfect to us. Right now, we’re obsessed with all things Disney+, as they all have all the classics like Hocus Pocus and The Haunted House if you’re feeling nostalgic. Or, if giving yourself nightmares is more up your street, you can always go for a terrifying horror instead. If you still can’t decide, here are seven films that will get you in the mood for Halloween 2020…

3. Pumpkin carving

No Halloween spent inside is complete without a spot of pumpkin carving. If you didn’t get chance to head to a pumpkin patch this year, your local supermarket should definitely have some stocked up. Get all the family or your friends involved and carve your pumpkins away from each other so you can have a grand reveal at the end. You could even introduce a prize for the best one to make it all the more exciting.

4. Festive baking

If baking is your thing, take the opportunity to get a little more creative this Halloween. We already have a whole post on five of our favourite autumnal recipes you should definitely check out. But, especially for the occasion, why not put together some treats into a care package and drop off to a friend or someone you know is spending Halloween alone this year?

5. Take an autumnal walk

You may actually want to take full advantage of the more laid-back vibes this Halloween, drop all the festivities and just head out for a walk. It’s getting darker out there much earlier now, so we’d suggest making this a daytime thing so you can make the most of all the colour autumn brings. You can even pick up a pumpkin spice latte on your travels to make it feel even more Halloween-y.
