A Hoopla/Kanopy Halloween

Halloween is here and it is on a weekend! You know what that means, right? Horror movie binge weekend! We're not fooling around with this list. We're down to the wire. I've seen every flick I'm posting here and I don't think any of them are a waste of your time. Each title box links to the film on either Hoopla or Kanopy. (Big title boxes are available from Hoopla and the small title boxes are available from Kanopy.) Some are scary, some are funny, some are pretty strange, but all are perfect for a weekend Halloween horror binge.  Happy Halloween!

Look no further than some of these creepy cute series for younger readers! These are perfect series for reluctant or struggling readers as well as those just getting into chapter books.
