The arrival of October means two things: fall festivities and, of course, Halloween! It's time to pull out that planner because between riding through the pumpkin patch, trying to find the finest pumpkin spice latte in town, and creating your best DIY Halloween costume yet, we've got a lot of work to do.

Nothing screams Halloween quite like Freeform's spell-binding "31 Nights of Halloween" roster. It's probably one of the easiest ways to get in the spooky spirit with classics like Hocus Pocus and fresher additions like Hotel Transylvania. A full month's worth of ghouls, ghosts and Sarah Jessica Parker casting spells? Sign us up!
