Treat yourself to a scary sweet Halloween in the company of Kat and three of her iconic roles. We have prepared a guide that is sure to guarantee you an evening of fun whether you’re a first time viewer or rewatching the following projects.
The Scream Team
Starting out with something for the kids, we have a Disney Channel original movie, The Scream Team (2002). Starring Kat alongside Mark Rendall, Eric Idle, Tommy Davidson and Kathy Najimy (who starred in another beloved Halloween classic, Hocus Pocus (1993)).
The story follows the moving of the Carlysle siblings, Claire (Kat) and Ian (Rendall) — and their father — into Steeple Falls for their grandfather’s funeral. As curious Ian feels his grandfather’s spirit is still around and trying to tell him something, the children discover a portal to the afterlife and a brigade of left-behind souls who are supposed to direct the souls of the newly deceased, the self-titled Soul Patrol (Idle, Davidson and Najimy).
They also learn about the town’s lore and its relationship with local pyromaniac legend Zachariah Kull. But does the legend match Zachariah’s reality? Only Claire, Ian and the ghosts can discover the truth, free Zachariah’s spirit and allow their grandfather’s soul to pass to the other side.
The Scream Team is available to watch on Disney+ (availability subject to your country’s catalogue).
As the black of the night falls upon us, we get R-rated with Richard Bates Jr’s Suburban Gothic (2014), a dark comedy starring Matthew Gray Gubler and Kat.
Unemployed and hopeless, Raymond (Gubler) returns home to a bullying father, unaccepting neighbours and former classmates that won’t let him forget his teenage reputation as a freak who believes in the paranormal. Lucky for him, he manages to meet with his old friend Becca (Kat), who busies herself with a bartending job and being bored of pathetic small town life in her free time.
Raymond and Becca will find life is not as boring anymore when some construction work unearths the body of a young girl thus unleashing an evil spirit whose purpose is that of harvesting the souls of the townsfolk.

2 Broke Girls selected episodes
Finally, we revisit Kat and Beth as the sempiternal 2 Broke Girls for selected episodes full of sweets and spooks in the company of Jonathan Kite, Matthew Moy, Garrett Morris and the coolest Jennifer Coolidge.
Starting out with lots of candy in …and the Candy Manwich (S02E06), Caroline is too embarrassed to date an attractive candy-store owner nicknamed Candy Andy after a humiliating experience in his establishment. Candy Andy is played by Ryan Hansen, who has recently worked with Kat in her latest movie Friendsgiving!
In …and the extra work (S02E22), Max and Caroline are invited to be extras on a popular TV show shooting a scene in Han’s diner. When Caroline catches the director’s eye, he offers her an actual role – with strings attached and blood-stained uniforms.
In …and the Booth Babes (S05E11), there’s nerd wardrobe fun as Max and Caroline sign up to be “booth babes” in order to get into a huge gaming convention for free. Once inside, they’re shocked to see that Han’s friend has created video game characters based on them, and demand compensation.
And in …and the Stalking Dead (S06E13), Max and Caroline are cast as zombie extras when they reach the movie set in Texas. It’s thriller night!
