TTT #161 – Book to Movie (or Tv Show) Adaptation to Watch for Halloween

Tomorrow is Halloween!

This holiday is not very big here in the Netherlands but I enjoy seeing all the things it inspires. From the Halloween episodes on Nickelodeon, to the scary books and book inspired costumes. I mostly love the idea of it or seeing other people participate.

For this week Top Ten Tuesday (hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl as always) we get the Halloween Freebie. So for today I decided to go for book to movie or tv show adaptions that I think can be great watches for Halloween this year.



Harry Potter
Book / Movie
Of course everyone knows Harry Potter. Even so I think it is still a great watch for Halloween, especially with younger children.

The Witches
Book / Movie
It has been a long while since I saw this movie but it is creepy, lets be real. Perfect for Halloween.

Jurassic Park
Book / Movie
I don’t know about you but human eating dinosaurs seems perfect for halloween…

Book / Movie
Coraline might be a kid’s book but you can’t deny that the premise is super creepy…

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children
Book / Movie
This has a bit of a mystery creepy vibe going for it.

The Hound of the Baskervilles
Book / Movie
Of course this had to be added. I had nightmares about this movie when I was younger.

(TV) Shows

Book / Show
This is based, or rather loosely inspired by, the Stephen King book The Colorado Kid. It takes it on a completely different route. But it has a lot of creepy elements.

Book / Show
If you know me you know I’m a bit of a CLAMP fan. Especially their XXXHolic is one that I greatly love to read. It has so many creepy vibes and feels that it is perfect for Halloween.

The Magicians
Book / Show
I read the book years ago and was excited to see the tv show. It is certainly very interesting.

American Gods
Book / Show
The American Gods show is like a train wreck you just can’t look away from. Seriously. It is gruesome, only has a few episodes so perfect for a Halloween binge. If you can stomach it…

Happy Halloween!

  1. Great twist on this week’s topic! I looove Jurassic Park (I’m actually wearing a Jurassic Park t-shirt as I type this) and The Witches is a brilliant one. I actually like the film adaptation of Coraline even more than I like the book. πŸ™‚ And thanks for reminding me that I need to hurry up and watch American Gods!

    1. I saw flashes of Coraline but wasn’t able to pay much attention the first time I put it on. But for next year it is definitely in my list for Halloween to watch. πŸ™‚

      And yes, watch American Gods~

    1. It looks like fun. I put it on the first time but circumstances prevented me from paying as much attention as I wanted it to so I really need to have another go at it.


  2. Ik heb niet alle films kunnen zien die ik wilde zien tegen Halloween. Gelukkig staat er geen vervaldatum op en kan ik dus nu ook nog naar Coraline, Edward Scissorhands en The Witches kijken.
