Halloween Movies in Different Languages

While Halloween used to be a time to celebrate the end of the harvesting season, we now enjoy it as the time to enjoy the spookier and sillier things in life, and embrace the spirit of trick or treat.

Ready to start embracing spooky season with Drops? Watch one of the Halloween movies below in your learning language!

1. Hocus Pocus

Since Hocus Pocus 2 was just released this year, we couldn’t resist putting this first on the list. Hocus Pocus was released in 1993, and the old school effects are definitely part of its charm. It’s the perfect movie to curl up in front of with a hot beverage.

Find some of the vocabulary from Hocus Pocus like cat, witch, and zombie in the Drops Magic & Fantasy or Halloween topics!

2. The Poltergeist

If the first one had you scoffing and saying “kids stuff”, then The Poltergeist is for you. This movie came out in 1982, proving that the 80s could shell out even scarier things than bright patterns and big hair.

Learn how to say the chillingly infamous “they’re here”phrase in 45+ languages!

3. Tanz der Vampire (Dance of the Vampires)

Filmed near Hamburg in 1967, the Dance of the Vampires has since become a popular musical. The scariest part? It’s filmed entirely in German.

Luckily, Drops helps make learning German a little less scary.

4. The Master’s Sun

K-drama with a touch of horror? Yes please! Get your fill of drama and ghosts with this South-Korean film.

Learn some K-drama phrases with Drops in preparation!

5. Kwaidan (Ghost Story)

Japanese horror, or J-horror takes it to the next level. If you’re into gore, Tetsuo is for you. Dive into a series of ghost stories based on Japanese folklore for a cultural experience that’s bound to leave you shaking in your boots.

Brush up on your Japanese Halloween vocab with Drops before you watch!

That’s our list of recommendations. We hope they help you get in the Halloween and language learning mood. If you want a next-level language learning experience, try watching with both the audio AND subtitles in your target learning language.
