The 6 Best Halloween TV Specials!

Halloween is one of our favorite holidays. The costumes, the candy, the spooky movies...we love it all! So, of course, we were thrilled to discover that Mexican filmmaker, Guillermo del Toro, was the director behind the opening for this year's The Simpsons: Treehouse of Horrors Spectacular. 

Watch the spooky opening and check out our six favorite Halloween specials below: 

1. Halloween -- Simpsons

The Simpsons: Treehouse of Horrors Halloween Spectacular XXIV
Directed by Guillermo del Toro

2. Halloween -- Modern Family

Modern Family: Halloween

Sofia Vergara and the hilarious cast of Modern Family manage to bring a well-needed dose of humor to the spooky holiday. “Halloween” is an all-time classic, and one of our favorite episodes of the series.

3. Halloween -- Glee

Glee: The Rocky Horror Glee Show

A must-watch for anyone who prefers campy Halloween celebrations to spooky ones. Naya Rivera’s performance of “Science Fiction/Double Feature” is scary good. 

4. Halloween -- Parks and Rec

Parks and Recreation: Meet ‘n Greet

Aubrey Plaza and her on-screen husband, Chris Pratt, decide to throw a Halloween party at their house...but the couple has a few special surprises for their guests! 

5. Halloween -- Ugly Betty

Ugly Betty: The Lyin’, The Watch, and the Wardrobe

It’s Halloween, and, of course, Betty is in for a series of frightful experiences! First, she shows up to work in costume...only to discover there’s no party. Things go downhill from there for loveable Betty. It’s a must-watch for all families trying to get into the Halloween spirit.

6. Halloween -- Vampire Diaries

The Vampire Diaries: Masquerade

For those of you who love spooky Halloween specials, the Vampire Diaries is the perfect mix of thrilling, chilling, and sexy. Watch what happens when a masquerade party goes all wrong for hottie werewolf Michael Trevino.
