I love a good Halloween movie! So I want to share a few of our favorites. We will start with the kid & family friendly ones, and move on to the scary ones…
1. First up the classic It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown This one never gets old, everything about it is just so good. The music, the animation, the trick-or-treating scenes where Charlie Brown says “I gotta rock” perfection!
2. Next up Mad Monster Party from Rankin-Bass a claymation Halloween delight. This little gem features the voices of Boris Karloff & Phyllis Diller. There are even some really great musical numbers (skeleton band anyone?)
3.Hocus Pocus I like this movie for several reasons–its about witches, salem mass, and there are dance numbers.
4. The Worst Witch we watched this movie growing up, and it was always a favorite. I’m still waiting to find a decently priced boxset of the tv series. But the movie is great because it centers around Halloween.
I obviously have a little bit of strange taste when it comes to movies, I like nostalgic stuff and I like Beetlejuice, Coraline, and Corpsebride, but when it comes to Halloween time I am usually hoping for stuff that has something Halloween-related in it like The Nightmare Before Christmas.
Other random halloween movies I want to see:
–The Night Dracula Saved the World
–The Hilarious House of Frightenstein Vincent Price :) :)
–Mr. Boogedy & the Bride of Boogedy
I’m sure I am forgetting so many good ones, what about you…any kid or family Halloween movies you’ll be watching this year?
I’ll be back in another post with Halloween movies for the grown-ups :)
