ABC Family’s 13 Nights of Halloween has been a cultural phenomenon since 1998. Each year, ABC Family is home an impressive collection of Halloween-inspired movies — most of which our generation has grown up watching. There are a few fan-favorites that always make the cut, such as The Nightmare Before Christmas and Hocus Pocus, but 2015 promises to be an interesting lineup; The list is predictably dominated by Tim Burton films, but there are a few titles on the list that come as a surprise. Matilda, the story of a little girl with telekinetic powers, will be playing, as well as The Hunger Games. Newer movies like Monsters University and Toy Story of Terror will appeal to all audiences, while old favorites like Casper make another round. The full 2015 lineup is a mixture of old and new, and all are guaranteed to be spooktacular.
