It's October, which means it's time to carve up some pumpkins, regret spending so much money on a haunted house visit, and watch Halloween-themed Disney Channel Original Movies. The latest DCOM is Invisible Sister, which tells the story of what happens when a science-inclined younger sister (Rowan Blanchard) accidentally turns her older sister (Paris Berelc) invisible using spooky science. It follows a long line of tradition for spooky Halloween DCOMs, and though they will likely be airing on TV over the course of the month, you're probably still wondering where you can stream Invisible Sister and other Disney Halloween movies.
Disney Channel Original Movies are tragically absent from many streaming services, but there are still plenty of options for checking out Invisible Sister. If 8 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 9 comes around and you're not able to get in front of a TV with Disney Channel, the network is already planning some Invisible Sister reruns, airing it on Saturday, Oct. 10 at 11 a.m.; Monday, Oct. 12 at 8 p.m., and Saturday, Oct. 17 at 7 p.m. You can also catch it on the WATCH Disney app, which has other classic Halloween DCOMs for your viewing pleasure. WATCH Disney requires a cable subscription for most of its content, but has select programming (including one of the greatest DCOM's of all time, Halloweentown) available for free.
Here are some classic Halloween Disney Channel Original Movies worth streaming on WATCH Disney after you watch Invisible Sister.
It's Halloweentown, you know you wanna go back. It's the Disney Channel Original Movie to end all Disney Channel Original Movies. It has Debbie Reynolds as everyone's favorite grandmother witch, some of the citizens of Halloweentown have pumpkins for faces, and it had a whopping three sequels, including Halloweentown II: Kabalar's Revenge, Halloweentown High, and Return To Halloweentown. There's nothing about this film that isn't perfect. Oh, and the whole thing is streaming online at WATCH Disney, with no cable login required. There's no reason you shouldn't be watching it right now, and everyday until Halloween.
Mom's Got A Date With A Vampire
The great thing about Disney Channel Original Movies is that the title usually tells you everything you need to know the plot. In this film, the mother of a family has a date with a vampire. This was pre-Twilight, so the Vampires aren't good. Also, Lizzie McGuire's dad plays Van Helsing, because why not?
The Scream Team
The Scream Team is notable for, if nothing else, the surprisingly good cast it brought together. In Living Color's Tommy Davidson, Monty Python's Eric Idle, and Hocus Pocus' Kathy Najimi join forces as three ghosts who have to team up with a group of kids to save the day.
Tia and Tamera Mowry (of Sister, Sister fame) play twin sisters separated at birth who have to go back to the dimension they were born in to save the world. But none of that is really very important, because the only thing that matters is that someone wrote a story about twin witches and was smart enough to call it Twitches.
Girl Vs. Monster
If you've ever wondered, "What if Buffy was a Ghostbuster instead of a Vampire Slayer?" then this is the movie for you. This recent addition to the Disney Channel Original Movie canon has all the staples of a classic DCOM: Subpar special effects, a pair of bumbling best friends to support the hero, and random pop music interludes. Even though it's new, the film holds up against old classics.
All of these DCOMs and more are available for streaming at WATCH Disney, so you can turn Invisible Sister into the first round of a Halloween marathon.
