Films that Celebrate the Holiday of Halloween

I love Halloween. And as an ode to Halloween I wanted to create this comprehensive list of any film that even remotely celebrates the holiday. Even if the film has just a single jack-o-lantern, it qualifies.

I used to try and rank the films by Halloweeness, but that became too daunting of task.

I love suggestions for both the list and for my own viewing pleasure. Please let me know if you can think of anything I am missing!
