Turning on the TV and finding a nice warm blanket is a great way to enjoy chilly Fall evenings. 

Not sure what to watch? There are many options that satisfy the whole family, like Gilmore Girls, Scream, Hocus Pocus, and The Addams Family.

Gilmore Girls is about a mother (Lorelai Gilmore) and daughter (Rory Gilmore) who live in a small town called Stars Hollow, it shows their bond and their relationships with different people in the town and in the area. Lorelai hasn’t always had the best relationship with her parents but she slowly starts to build it for Rory, since they pay for her to go to private school. 

It can be watched on Netflix, the first season is on Prime Video, and Roku TV. Gilmore Girls  was made by Amy Sherman-Palladino in 2000.

Looking for more of a horror movie? Scream is perfect! 

It is about a girl named Sidney Prescott’s whose mom died a year ago after being murdered. She is terrorized after a new killer has targeted her and her friends by calling them on the phone and then preceding to kill them while wearing a ghost face mask.  

Cailyn Bruno, a junior at Franklin High School, said that Scream is terrifying and kept her on the edge of her seat. This can be watched on Prime Video, Youtube, Apple TV, and Google Play. Scream was created by Wes Craven in 1996.

Do you like Disney movies? You’re in luck, Hocus Pocus is a Fall/Halloween movie that is made by Disney. 

Hocus Pocus is based off of Salem Massachusetts, and is about citizens of Salem telling the story of the Sanderson sisters (witches that once lived there). There are rumors around the town that if a virgin lights a special candle on Halloween when there is a full moon the Sanderson sisters will come back. Well that exact thing happens and it all unfolds from there.

She said that the story telling is amazing and it is a movie she watches every Fall. There is also a sequel to this movie that just came out this year, but the original movie was made in 1993. Both can be watched on Disney+, Prime Video, and Google Play. 

Another movie that has a second one coming out this year is The Addams Family. 

This is about a family who is wealthy and lives in a mansion, but they are unaware how other people view them. Many say they are bizarre and frightening but none of the Addams really care, and goes about their lives. 

The Addams Family can be watched on Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Prime, and YouTube. The animated version can be seen on these too. The original was made by Charles Addams in 1991. 

If you have seen this movie before then stay tuned for the new Netflix series called Wednesday. It is based off of The Addams Family but it focuses on Wednesday Addams and her parents sending her to an academy where the kids are just like her.
