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.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.1: The Addams Family & The Addams Family Values

Is there any family that more perfectly captures the spirit of Halloween than The Addams Family?
