44 Movie & TV Themed Halloween Costumes

I absolutely love Halloween and excitedly look forward to the creative costumes of celebrities, friends, family and all the neighbourhood little ones each year. I have always found movie or TV themed costumes to be the most unique, which is why I have dedicated this entire post to my Top 44 favourites. See each Top 11 list below for couples, groups, and men & women solo costumes. Plus, scroll all the way to the bottom for a bonus collage of Neil Patrick Harris’s family winning Halloween year after year. Enjoy!
