The Best Movie Scenes For Halloween

I have lots of Halloween resources (see The Best Websites For Learning About Halloween) and lots of movie scenes useful for English language development (see The Best Movie Scenes To Use For English-Language Development).

With us focusing on Halloween next week in class, I thought I’d put the two together and share some good movie scenes to show students.

The ones here are a combination of scary videos and ones that introduce Halloween-like monsters. Some are too scary for young children.

You can read about how I use these scenes in class at The Best Popular Movies/TV Shows For ESL/EFL (& How To Use Them).

I hope readers will contribute additional suggestions:
