Halloween is right around the corner. If you’re the sort that gets excited for the spooky season when the leaves begin to fall, you’r probably gearing up for some seasonal movie marathons. The good news is, you have plenty of options.

Back in the 1950s, of course, people didn’t have all the streaming services and devices available today. Back then, people would go to the local drive-in to see the latest creature feature.

Even though there are a lot more options today, we think some of the best movies for this time of year were old-school drive-in classics. To save you some time, we put together a list of some of the best 1950s monster movies for your Halloween viewing pleasure.

Our list features creatures from below and others from outer space. We have thrills, chills, ghosts, ghouls, and of course some Vincent Price. Ready for a movie marathon? Check out our recommendations below
