Update Oct 27, 2009: Hey Fanpoppers, I've updated this list so that all the videos are working again and up-to-date just in time for the Holiday. I've added in some new videos to replace some of the shows I can't find working versions for. So check out some of the new finds below too! Enjoy...
Often cited as the second most popular holiday after Christmas, Halloween can certainly stake claim to being one of the "funnest" of all the holidays. Halloween videos are no exception. The quality and entertainment value of Halloween themed video content out there really is second only to the excellent range of movies, commercials, cartoons and sitcoms of Christmas.
Anyway, in keeping with the spirit of this holiday, I've compiled a new list of Halloween videos of all sorts: music videos, commercials, movies, short clips and tv shows. I hope you enjoy them and have a safe and fun holiday.
I'm using this term very loosely. Yes, Halloween doesn't really have the same depth of "classic" videos that Christmas has what with Rudolph, A Charlie Brown Christmas and The Grinch. Still, there are some Halloween classics that are a cut above the rest. Here are a few of them:
Scary (and some not-so-scary) Movies
Sure horror films can be enjoyed year round, but this genre was positively made for Halloween. It's no accident that the studios often release some of their biggest budget films in this genre at this time of year. Here are a few picks from the proverbial pumpkin patch:
Zombie music videos? Dancing monsters? Doesn't seem like it would work, but creepy themes have delivered some blockbuster hits over the years.
Sitcoms & Other TV Shows
TV, and sitcoms in particular, love to do Halloween episodes because dressing up adults in strange outfits provides unlimited potential for humorous situations.
Cartoons & Animated Fare
It just wouldn't be a holiday without classics like "It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown" or a scary Scooby Doo cartoon. Here's a grab-bag of treats in that vein...
Commercials. We hate 'em, but do you ever get nostalgic for them too years later?
Spoofing Halloween and horror movies is oh-so-easy...
Odds & Ends
And of course, there are always a few odd items that can't really be classified properly. Kinda like some of those strange off-brand candies you'd get in the bag among the stuff from Hershey's, Mars and Nestle.
