Oct 21, 2013

If you're planning a spooky sleepover or ghoulish gathering in the "spirit" of the Halloween season, you'll want to check out the Top 10 Halloween Movies!

No.10: Clue

Although it's more silly than scary, Clue is a murder mystery classic full of intrigue, death and more than it's fair share of witty dialogue and gags.

No.9: The Corpse Bride

When it comes to great Halloween movies, be prepared to see the list full of Tim Burton flicks, this animated film takes love beyond the grave and into the next realm, constantly going between sweet and creepy.

No.8: Beetlejuice

Another classic film that toes the line between comedy and horror, Beetlejuice has everything you need for Halloween - ghosts, voodoo, life after death, an unforgettable gothic teenager (played by Winona Ryder) and an unforgettable cast of characters.

No.7: The Craft

When it comes to teen witch movies, it doesn't get much better than The Craft. When four girls get together anything can happen - and we don't mean in the good way.

No.6: Hotel Transylvania

Dracula has been portrayed in many different ways over the years, but Hotel Transylvania is the first time he's been a successful high-end resort owner. Things get interesting when a boy falls for his teen daughter (voiced by Selena Gomez).

No.5: Zombieland

Starring Jesse Eisenberg and Emma Stone, Zombieland follows an unlikely group of travellers: a tough guy, a shy college kid trying to find his family in Ohio and a pair of sisters determined to get to an amusement park, as they fight their way across a zombie-filled America.

No.3: Carrie

Whether you opt for the vintage 70's version, or choose the one that just hit theaters starring Chloe Moretz, Carrie is a film guaranteed to genuinely scare you. When a shy teen is taunted at school, it unleashes a scene like no one has ever experienced before.

No.2: Frankenweenie

When it comes to monsters, Frankenstein is probably at the top of your list, but Frankenweenie is the story of young Victor, a junior scientist who decides to bring his beloved dog back to monstrous results!

No.1: The Addams Family & The Addams Family Values

Is there any family that more perfectly captures the spirit of Halloween than The Addams Family? For them, gothic isn't just a style, it's a complete way of life, but despite this they are determined to fit in whereever they go. Watch both The Addams Family and The Addams Family Values as a darkly funny double bill!
