Halloween Film/TV Recommendations for Comic Geeks

10 Oct
In keeping with the wonderful advice we give you, our readers and fellow geeks, along with staying within the Halloween spirit today we’re going to help you with a dilemma you may be facing. You may be asking yourself, “How do I fulfill the need for something creepy to watch AND get my comic book fix at the same time?” Well here is a list of films and TV shows that will hopefully help to fix that problem.

Swamp Thing

Either the films or the TV series will work. It has mutants, action, and suspense. Not to mention that it stars a comic book hero who can manipulate the elements, and oh yeah, bring people back from the dead. How cool is that?!

The Incredible Hulk

For this one we recommend the series rather than the movies. Why? The series had a much more Frankenstein’s monster feel to it. Of course there is also the comic hero thrashing on the bad guys too.


The live action films and the animated ones are great for that comic book creature feature need. There are monsters galore, evil spirits, and a demon trying to keep the peace. Besides, what’s not to love about a wise cracking demon doing a blue collar job?


One man who has the impossible, as well as never ending, job of keeping the balance between heaven and hell. There are demons, secret wars, incantations, and rites all done in the name of keeping the balance between good and evil. It also has John Constantine, from the Hellblazer comics, who is thrashing on the bad guys who cross the line.


The animated TV series by Disney has it all. There are monsters, robots, sorcery, and heroes who only come out at night. They also had their own comic series for a while. It’s also worth mentioning that many of the voices were done by several members of the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Doctor Strange

The animated movie put out by Marvel is filled with supernatural suspense. The origin of Stephen Strange blended together with the come-back attempts of Mordo. There is sorcery, both good and evil, as well as dark creatures of magic.


Vampires that don’t sparkle. Is there really any more that needs to be said? How about hybred vampire looking to take down all of the selfish human preying vampires? Yeah, we thought that would get your attention. Epic vampire battles to the death. It doesn’t get much better.

Ghost Rider

A stunt rider who sells his soul to the Devil and then becomes a bounty hunter for hell. Also tossed in for fun are elemental demons trying collect a mass of evil souls for their power. There’s also the cool skull on fire thing the aptly named Johnny Blaze has going on. Sounds like good ol’ supernatural fun with a twist of butt whoopin’ going on.

The Batman vs Dracula

An animated meeting of Batman and Dracula that is phenomenal! This movies shows just how much Batman and Dracula have in common. Dracual is awakened by Penguin and starts to promptly feed on the residents of Gotham. Also, for a really spine tingling twist, see Joker as a vampire.
If there’s any others that you can think of or that we left out, please let us know. Also tell us who/what your favorite supernatural comic book character is.
