Oct 14, 2010

If you’re planning a Halloween Slumber Party, line up some spooky movies that you can watch while you munch on your Halloween candy. Kidzworld has selected the top spooky movies to watch on Halloween!

No. 10: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Creepy Capital CCreepy Capital C

One of the most popular children’s book ever was made not once but twice into a blockbuster movie. The older version from the 70’s is much better. The movie is fun, but it also has some very eerie moments that might creep you out. What’s Halloween without the story about a chocolate factory.

No. 9: Goonies


If you feel like an action packed movie that will have you and your friends on the edge of your sleeping bags, Goonies is for you. It’s about pirates and treasure, and it’s one of the most beloved movies from the 1980s.

No. 8: Coraline


This is a great animation with 3D fun. It’s an enchanting story about a little girl who finds another world full of mystical spookiness.

No. 7: The Monster Squad

Monster SquadMonster Squad

This is an unknown fun Halloween movie with the return of Dracula, Werewolf, Swamp Thing, Frankenstein and a Mummy that haunt a bunch of teenagers.

No. 6: Gremlins

Cute vs CruelCute vs Cruel

If you were cute and cuddly baby with puppy dog eyes, but somehow you changed into a menacing havoc-reaking monster… you might be a gremlin.

No. 5: The Witches

Nice Nose!Nice Nose!

This movie is so scary, it’s not just about witches… it’s about witches from England! AAAAAHHHH!

No. 4: Monster House

What's That!What's That!

The scariest animation ever made about a haunted house… a living, breathing haunted house!

No. 3: Edward Scissorhands

Fast Hands EddieFast Hands Eddie

This movie is very similar to the story of Frankenstein. It's about Edward, a boy brought to life by a strange scientist... he is a very nice boy who gets into a lot of adventures because he has scissors for hands. Most of the movie is very funny and wierd, but there are some bone chilling scenes that may leave you growing out your hair for a few years.

No. 2: Ghostbusters


This is a must see scary movie about ghosts. It’s very funny… it has great special effects… and it has a 500-foot giant marshmallow man. You will not be disappointed.

No. 1: Beetlejuice

Death Waiting RoomDeath Waiting Room

What happens after we die? Do you believe in ghosts? This movie might have the answer for you. Just say Beetlejuice three times!

Ouija Board and the Ideomotor Response (Source: Wikipedia) Following its commercial introduction by businessman Elijah Bond on July 1, 1890, the Ouija board was regarded as a parlor game unrelated to the occult until American Spiritualist Pearl Curran popularized its use as a divining tool during World War I. Spiritualists believed that the dead were able to contact the living and reportedly used a talking board very similar to a modern Ouija board at their camps in Ohio in 1886 to ostensibly enable faster communication with spirits. Paranormal and supernatural beliefs associated with Ouija have been harshly criticized by the scientific community, since they are characterized as pseudoscience. The action of the board can be parsimoniously explained by unconscious movements of those controlling the pointer, a psychophysiological phenomenon known as the ideomotor effect Ideomotor phenomenon is a psychological phenomenon wherein a subject makes motions unconsciously. The phrase is most commonly used in reference to the process whereby a thought or mental image brings about a seemingly "reflexive" or automatic muscular reaction, often of minuscule degree, and potentially outside of the awareness of the subject. As in reflexive responses to pain, the body sometimes reacts reflexively with an ideomotor effect to ideas alone without the person consciously deciding to take action. The effects of automatic writing, dowsing, facilitated communication, and Ouija boards have been attributed to the phenomenon. Mystics have often attributed these effects to paranormal or supernatural force. Many subjects are unconvinced that their actions are originating solely from within themselves. Scientific tests by the English scientist Michael Faraday, Manchester surgeon James Braid, the French chemist Michel Eugène Chevreul, and the American psychologists William James and Ray Hyman have demonstrated that many phenomena attributed to spiritual or paranormal forces, or to mysterious "energies," are actually due to ideomotor action. Furthermore, these tests demonstrate that "honest, intelligent people can unconsciously engage in muscular activity that is consistent with their expectations".[9] They also show that suggestions that can guide behavior can be given by subtle clues (Hyman 1977).
