If you’re looking for some spooky fun to keep yourself entertained before the big day, then check out our definitive list of Halloween movies.
Charlie Brown isn’t exactly the luckiest kid in the world (the kid keeps getting rocks for Halloween!) but that doesn’t prevent him from doing his best to celebrate! Whether it’s trick-or-treating or Halloween Parties, nothing will put an end to ol’ Chuck’s spirits in ‘It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown.’ Meanwhile, who could forget Linus waiting in the pumpkin patch for a visit from the famous Great Pumpkin?
Back in the early 1990’s, ‘Hocus Pocus’ introduced us to the Sanderson Sisters, three witches from the 17th century who were revived in modern times. All the magic in the world couldn’t prepare them for the things we take for granted today. A trio of trick-or-treaters have to find a way to put an end to the witches’ hunt for immortality before they gain eternal life and wreak havoc on the unsuspecting town.
‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’ is one of many of Director Tim Burton’s holiday movies, but it is also one of the most recognizable. Jack Skellington is responsible every year for gearing Halloweentown up for Halloween. As you might have guessed, when everyday is like Halloween, then the actual holiday isn’t anything special. After learning about Christmas, Jack tries to get his community to attempt a new holiday in this magical, animated Disney adventure.
When the ghosts come out to haunt, who will step up to put them back in their place? The ‘Ghostbusters’ of course! When ancient spirits threaten the people, four professors turned ghost hunters put their scientific know-how to act as paranormal exterminators to rid your house of the things that go bump in the night. Will they be able to stand up against a mystical evil that is determined to destroy the city?
