The Addams Family
Rated: PG-13
Genres: Comedy, Family, Fantasy
Starring: Anjelica Huston, Raul Julia, Christopher Lloyd, Dan Hedaya, and Christina Ricci
Synopsis: For 25 years uncle Fester has been missing. An evil doctor finds out and introduces a fake Fester in an attempt to get the Adams Family's money. The youngest daughter has some doubts as to the sincerity of the new uncle Fester. The fake uncle adapts very well to the strange family. Can the doctor carry out her evil plans and take over the Adams Family's fortune?
Review:  A fun movie version of the TV show. We get to know the family and all their eccentricities along with many colorful characters. The story is original and entertaining. A movie I don’t mind seeing over and over again. 
Scoring: 4

Addams Family Values

Rated: PG-13

Genres: Comedy, Family, Fantasy

Starring: Anjelica Huston, Raul Julia, Joan Cusack, Dan Hedaya, and Christina Ricci

Synopsis: The Addams Family try to rescue their beloved uncle Fester from his gold-digging new love, a black widow named Debbie.

Review: In a fun sequel to the first movie, we get to see the contrast between the girliest girl and an Addams. The movie splits into two equally funny stories when we see the kids at camp with “normal” children and Fester falling for the nanny. This movie may be more outrageous than the first but it’s another I love to rewatch.

Scoring: 4

Beetlejuice 
Rated: PG
Genres: Comedy, Family, Fantasy 
Starring: Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis, Michael Keaton, Catherine O’Hara, and Winona Ryder
Synopsis: Adam and Barbara are a normal couple...who happen to be dead. They have given their precious time to decorate their house and make it their own, but unfortunately a family is moving in, and not quietly. Adam and Barbara try to scare them out, but end up becoming the main attraction to the money making family. They call upon Beetlejuice to help, but Beetlejuice has more in mind than just helping.
Review:  This is a classic for a good reason. It’s silly, fun, and full of many eccentric characters. The best twist is that the most normal characters are the ghosts in the house. 
Scoring: 4

Boo!  A Madea Halloween

Rated: PG-13

Genres: Comedy, Drama, Horror

Starring: Tyler Perry

Synopsis: Madea winds up in the middle of mayhem when she spends a haunted Halloween fending off killers, paranormal poltergeists, ghosts, ghouls and zombies while keeping a watchful eye on a group of misbehaving teens.

Review:  This is a typical Madea movie.  If you like Madea, you’ll love this.  You’ve got all the funny lines and characters mixed with Halloween antics.  It even has the life lessons you’d expect.  It’s laugh out loud funny.

Scoring: 4

Boo 2!  A Madea Halloween

Rated: PG-13

Genres: Comedy, Drama, Horror

Starring: Tyler Perry

Synopsis: Madea, Bam, and Hattie venture to a haunted campground and the group must run for their lives when monsters, goblins, and the boogeyman are unleashed.

Review:  All the fun, characters, and silliness of the first Madea Halloween but with some more scare thrown in.  I couldn’t stop laughing. 

Scoring: 4

Casper
Rated: PG
Genres: Comedy, Family, Fantasy
Starring: Bill Pullman, Christina Ricci, Kathy Moriarity, and Eric Idle
Synopsis: A paranormal expert and his daughter bunk in an abandoned house populated by three mischievous ghosts and one friendly one.
Review:  A fun movie for the whole family. Kids will love special effects like the ghosts eating and the food going through them. A good message about kindness and acceptance. 
Scoring: 3

Coraline

Rated: PG

Genres: Animation, Drama, Fantasy

Starring: Dakota Fanning and Teri Hatcher

Synopsis: An adventurous 11-year-old girl finds another world that is a strangely idealized version of her frustrating home, but it has sinister secrets.

Review: This movie was creepy and I feel that may be an understatement.  It’s not one I’d watch again but I don’t particularly care for creepy and weird.  If you liked The Nightmare Before Christmas, Frankenweenie, and similar movies, I believe you’ll like it.

Scoring: 2

Corpse Bride
Rated: PG
Starring: Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Emily Watson, and Tracy Ullman
Synopsis: When a shy groom practices his wedding vows in the inadvertent presence of a deceased young woman, she rises from the grave assuming he has married her.
Review:  I know I say this for every one of his movies but, Tim Burton. If you’re not a fan, this isn’t the movie for you. I found it to be a sweet love story with some original story elements. I seems implausible that a movie about a ghost in love would make sense but somehow it works. 
Scoring: 3
Frankenweenie
Rated: PG
Genres: Animation, Comedy, Fantasy 
Starring: Winona Ryder, Catherine O’Hara, and Martin Short
Synopsis: When a boy's beloved dog passes away suddenly, he attempts to bring the animal back to life through a powerful science experiment.
Review:  What else can you say but Tim Burton. Bizarre and really weird. A movie about raising the dead isn’t one I’d recommend for children but for adult Burton fans you may enjoy it. I didn’t care for it. 
Scoring: 2
Ghostbusters (1984)
Rated: PG
Genres: Action, Comedy, Fantasy 
Starring: Bill Murray, Dan Akroyd, Harold Ramos, Sigourney Weaver, Rick Moranis, and Annie Potts
Synopsis: Three former parapsychology professors set up shop as a unique ghost removal service.
Review:  While the premise is quite unbelievable, the plot is even more so. However, that’s part of the fun. The silliness and plot twists keep you thoroughly entertained. If you can handle corny, this is for you. 
Scoring: 3
Girl Vs. Monster 
Rated: TV-PG
Genres: Adventure, Comedy, Fantasy
Starring: Olivia Holt
Synopsis: Skylar finds out that her parents are monster hunters after she accidentally releases some monsters from a secret containment chamber; so she and her techno friends must recapture all the monsters and also save her mom and dad from these monsters who are out for revenge.
Review:  This movie may appeal to school age children but it was a little too expected and silly for me. I didn’t mind watching it but I won’t watch it again. That being said, kids may enjoy it. 
Scoring: 2
The Good Witch
Rated: PG
Genres: Drama, Family, Fantasy 
Starring: Catherine Bell and Chris Potter
Synopsis: A darkly beautiful and mysterious woman comes in to town and inhabits the local haunted mansion, making everyone wonder if she's a witch or "The Grey Lady".
Review:  This is the movie that started the Good Witch movies and then TV series. Cassie’s odd ways and mysterious home and shop intrigue the town and, of course, love ensues. 
Scoring: 3

Good Witch Halloween

Rated: G

Genres: Comedy, Drama, Fantasy

Starring: Catherine Bell, Bailee Madison, and James Denton

Synopsis: Whilst Cassie deals with the newest guest at Grey House, Grace seeks no advice to help deal with school bullies calling her a witch.

Review:  I enjoyed this as much as all the other Good Witch stories.  It’s got the usual town hijinks mixed with fun and drama.  As with the others, it’s easier to follow if you watch the series.  If you don’t, this might make you want to.

Scoring: 3

Good Witch: Secrets of Grey House

Rated: G

Genres: Comedy, Drama, Fantasy

Starring: Catherine Bell, Bailee Madison, and James Denton

Synopsis: The author of a series of magic-and-romance-filled novels comes to Grey House to celebrate the release of her newest book, titled "The Enchantress Unites." But it's Cassie who ends up doing the uniting, bringing together the people of Middleton to put on the special event while also coming to a special realization about Sam.

Review:  Another wonderful Good Witch story.  It blends just the right amount of mystery with romance.  It’s light and easy.  It may be difficult to follow if you don’t watch the series and aren’t familiar with the story.  If you watch the series, you know you’ll love it.

Scoring: 3

Good Witch: Spellbound

Rated: G

Genres: Comedy, Drama, Fantasy

Starring: Catherine Bell, Bailee Madison, and James Denton

Synopsis: The business owners compete for the best-decorated shop. A prophecy is unearthed in the basement of City Hall; when predictions start coming true, the citizens fear it's a terrible curse. Cassie and Sam may be the key to saving their town.

Review:  I believe this may be one of my favorite Good Witch adventures.  The twists and turns and townspeople reactions to the predictions makes it extra entertaining.  As with the other Good Witch stories, it will be easier to follow and enjoy if you watch the series.

Scoring: 4

Good Witch: Tale Of Two Hearts
Rated: G
Starring: Catherine Bell, James Denton, and Bailee Madison
Synopsis: Everyone in town prepares for the Halloween Harvest Festival’s competition with rival town Blairsville. New mayor Abigail tries to outdo former mayor Martha, creating rivalries within the town as well. When a 100-carat ruby known as The Heart of Middleton is stolen from the museum where the festival’s gala is to be held, the town’s Halloween romance suffers, and Cassie suspects a Grey House guest is the culprit. 
Review:  If you’re a fan of the Good Witch series this is a must see movie as it’s a continuation of the show’s story line. If you don’t watch the series you may have trouble figuring out the characters and relationships. That being said, it’s as charming as the series with the expected Halloween magic. 
Scoring: 4
Halloweentown (Movie 1 Of 4)
Rated: G
Genres: Comedy, Family, Fantasy
Starring: Debbie Reynolds, Kimberly J. Brown, Judith Hoag, Joey Zimmerman, Emily Roeske, and Robin Thomas
Synopsis: On Halloween the Piper kids' grandmother Aggie comes to visit. Aggie wants to start Marnie's witch training before her 13th birthday or Marnie will lose her powers forever.  After Aggie leaves to return to Halloweentown, the children follow her onto the return bus. Soon afterwards, Gwen follows the children to Halloweentown. While there, Aggie & Gwen are attacked by the dark force in a movie theater. Marnie, Dylan & Sophie race to get the ingredients to activate Merlin's Wand to stop the evil.
Review:  While this movie was made for children it appeals to the child in all of us. It’s silly and corny yet delightfully enjoyable. All the creatures of Halloweentown are whimsical and magical without being too scary. The family relationships are easily relatable. 
Scoring: 4
Halloweentown High (Movie 3 Of 4)
Rated: G
Genres: Comedy, Family, Fantasy
Starring: Debbie Reynolds, Kimberly J. Brown, Judith Hoag, Joey Zimmerman, and Emily Roeske
Synopsis: In the third Halloweentown movie, Marnie and her pals from Halloweentown are interested in attending high school in the nearby mortal community, where they'll be able to spend more time with kids their age, and with the help of her grandmother Aggie, she's able to convince the town council to go along with the suggestion. However, there's a catch, if anything dangerous happens as a result of their presence in the mortal school, Marnie’s family will lose their magic. Trouble does make its way to the school, but not in a way anyone expected. The Knight of the Iron Dagger comes to the mortal world determined to wipe out Marnie and her magical companions.
Review:  Yet another fun sequel. We get to see magical creatures wearing human costumes to fit in. It demonstrates that no matter how different we are there are so many ways we are alike. High school is high school whether magical or mortal. As with the other movies we see the ever evolving relationships within the family. 
Scoring: 4
Halloweentown II: Kalabar’s Revenge (Movie 2 Of 4)
Rated: G
Genres: Comedy, Family, Fantasy
Starring: Debbie Reynolds, Kimberly J. Brown, Judith Hoag, Joey Zimmerman, Emily Roeske, and Robin Thomas
Synopsis: The Cromwell clan live in the real world, except for their grandmother who lives in Halloweentown, a place where monsters go to escape reality. But now the son of the Cromwells' old enemy Kalabar has a plan to use the grandmother's book to turn Halloweentown into a grey dreary version of the real world, while transforming the denizens of the real world into monsters. Only Marnie, a fledgling witch, can thwart the evil scheme.
Review:  This sequel to the original is just as magical as the first. We get to see how their relationships develop and change as the children age and magic becomes a bigger part of their lives. We get to see all the fun Halloweentown characters again. 
Scoring: 4
The Haunted Mansion
Rated: PG
Genres: Comedy, Drama, Family, Fantasy
Starring: Eddie Murphy, Jennifer Tilly, and Wallace Shawn
Synopsis: A realtor and his wife and children are summoned to a mansion, which they soon discover is haunted, and while they attempt to escape, he learns an important lesson about the family he has neglected.
Review:  Based on the ride at Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, this movie doesn’t disappoint. It takes all the parts of the ride and expands them into a family tale. The family’s adventures introduce us to whimsical characters and teach the importance of family. 
Scoring: 3
Hocus Pocus
Rated: PG
Genres: Comedy, Drama, Family, Fantasy
Starring: Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kathy Najimy, and Thora Birch
Synopsis: 300 years have passed since the Sanderson sisters were executed for practicing dark witchcraft. Returning to life thanks to a combination of a spell spoken before their demise and the accidental actions of Max, the new-kid-in-town, the sisters have but one night to secure their continuing existence.
Review:  My favorite Halloween movie. As the kids go on their adventure the hilarious adventures of the witches, like discovering paved roads, keep the story light.  It might be frightening for very young children but it’s a family favorite. 
Scoring: 5
Hotel Transylvania 
Rated: PG
Genres: Animation, Comedy, Family, Fantasy 
Starring: Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Andy Samberg, Selena Gomez, Fran Drescher, Steve Buscemi, Molly Shannon, and David Spade
Synopsis: Dracula, who operates a high-end resort away from the human world, goes into overprotective mode when a boy discovers the resort and falls for the count's teenaged daughter.
Review:  I love this movie. All the varied creatures are fun and not scary. There’s so many funny moments but some very sweet father-daughter moments. Fun for all ages. 
Scoring: 4
Hotel Transylvania 2
Rated: PG
Genres: Animation, Comedy, Family, Fantasy 
Starring: Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Andy Samberg, Selena Gomez, Fran Drescher, Steve Buscemi, Molly Shannon, and David Spade
Synopsis: Dracula and his friends try to bring out the monster in his half human, half vampire grandson in order to keep Mavis from leaving the hotel.
Review:  As much fun as the first. We see Mavis in the human world and the remaining creatures in theirs. It’s got so many funny moments and a quick pace.  You can watch it separately from the first but I think it’s better to watch them both. 
Scoring: 4
Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation
Rated: PG
Genres: Animation, Comedy, Family, Fantasy 
Starring: Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Andy Samberg, Selena Gomez, Fran Drescher, Steve Buscemi, Molly Shannon, and David Spade
Synopsis: Count Dracula and company participate in a cruise for sea-loving monsters, unaware that their boat is being commandeered by the monster-hating Van Helsing family.
Review:  Most movies, by the third sequel, lose their appeal. This isn’t the case here. They build on the funny aspects of each character and add in the group dynamics.  Taking place on a monster cruise makes it seem very different while keeping the characters we love. This movie could also stand alone but watching them in order makes them even better. 
Scoring: 4

It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

Rated: NR

Genres: Animation, Comedy

Starring: N/A

Synopsis: The Peanuts gang celebrates Halloween while Linus waits for the Great Pumpkin.

Review: Another classic from the Peanuts gang.  Poor Charlie Brown, pitiful costume and all, doesn’t get candy.  Linus convince Sally to wait with him for the Great Pumpkin.  The best part is how Linus believes with all his heart, no matter what everyone says.

Scoring: 5

Midnight Masquerade 
Rated: PG
Genres: Comedy, Family, Romance
Starring: Autumn Reeser and Christopher Russell
Synopsis: Elyse, a rich heiress, meets Rob, a bullied lawyer, and the two fall in love during a costume ball.
Review:  While this is more a movie that takes place at a Halloween rather than about it, it’s still enjoyable. A twist on Cinderella where Elyse is doing the searching and Rob is the masked one. A sweet love story. 
Scoring: 4
Monster House
Rated: PG
Genres: Animation, Comedy, Drama, Fantasy
Starring: Steve Buscemi, Catherine O’Hara, Fred Willard, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and Kevin James
Synopsis: Three teens discover that their neighbor's house is really a living, breathing, scary monster.
Review:  I don’t even know what to say. This may possibly be the weirdest movie I’ve ever seen. Definitely not for young children. I was quite bored and felt like the pace lagged a lot. Not one I’ll watch again. 
Scoring: 1
Monsters University 
Rated: G
Genres: Animation, Adventure, Comedy, Fantasy 
Starring: Billy Crystal, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, Helen Mirren, and Sean Hayes
Synopsis: Mike Wazowski and James P. Sullivan are an inseparable pair, but that wasn't always the case. From the moment these two mismatched monsters met they couldn't stand each other. "Monsters University" unlocks the door to how Mike and Sulley overcame their differences and became the best of friends.
Review:  Set up as a prequel to the first movie, it’s okay. It introduces lots of new characters but it doesn’t quite have the magic the first movie did. This may appeal to younger children. 
Scoring: 2
Monsters Vs. Aliens
Rated: PG
Genres: Animation, Comedy, Fantasy
Starring: Reese Witherspoon, Rainn Wilson, Stephen Colbert, Seth Rogan, and Paul Rudd
Synopsis: When a meteorite from outer space hits a young California woman named Susan and turns her into a giant monster, she is taken to a secret government compound where she meets a ragtag group of monsters also rounded up over the years. As a last resort, under the guidance of General W.R. Monger, on a desperate order from The President, the motley crew of Monsters is called into action to combat the aliens and save the world from imminent destruction!
Review:  This is one of those animated films that appeals to children and adults. It moves at varying paces but I loved the nods to old science fiction movies. The heart of it is Susan’s journey. Funny moments and action sequences make this a good one. 
Scoring: 3
Monsters, Inc.
Rated: G
Genres: Animation, Adventure, Comedy, Fantasy 
Starring: Billy Crystal, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, John Ratzenberger, Jennifer Tilly, and Bonnie Hunt
Synopsis: In order to power the city, monsters have to scare children so that they scream. However, the children are toxic to the monsters, and after a child gets through, 2 monsters realize things may not be what they think.
Review:  A lovable story with colorful monsters and the cutest toddler. A movie that appeals to adults and children. Lots of laughs and more than a few ahhhs. 
Scoring: 4
The Nightmare Before Christmas 
Rated: PG
Genres: Animation, Fantasy, Musical
Starring: Danny Elfman, Chris Sarandon, and Catherine O’Hara
Synopsis: Jack Skellington, king of Halloween Town, discovers Christmas Town, but his attempts to bring Christmas to his home causes confusion.
Review:  The best way to describe this movie is with two words-Tim Burton. If you enjoy his movies you’ll like it. If not, this probably isn’t for you. A bizarrely macabre group of characters keep it unexpected . The reflection on holiday traditions and how they are twisted and turned is definitely interesting. 
Scoring: 3
October Kiss
Rated: G
Genres: Comedy, Drama, Family, Romance 
Starring: Ashley Williams and Sam Jaeger
Synopsis: Poppy Summerall is hired near Halloween as a temporary nanny by Ryan Lawson, a widowed, work-obsessed executive. Through a series of adventures, the eternally optimistic Poppy sets out to teach Ryan and his two young children what's important in life - unconditional love, family and the joy of everyday occurrences.
Review:  A lovely story that embraces the joys of Halloween, treats not tricks. Poppy’s sweetness and enthusiasm make this movie fun to watch. It has the expected happy ending but it’s fun getting there. 
Scoring: 4
ParaNorman
Rated: PG
Genres: Animation, Adventure, Comedy, Fantasy 
Starring: Anna Kendrick, Casey Affleck, Leslie Mann, Jeff Garlin, and John Goodman
Synopsis: A misunderstood boy takes on ghosts, zombies and grown-ups to save his town from a centuries-old curse.
Review:  Another animated film that may be too scary for young ones. A boy sees and talks to the dead. He has to use his abilities to save the town from a girl killed as a witch for being a medium. It’s okay. A little slow. If you like the subject matter you may like it. 
Scoring: 2

Practical Magic

Rated: PG-13

Genres: Comedy, Drama, Family, Fantasy

Starring: Sandra Bullock, Nicole Kidman, Aiden Quinn, Stockard Channing, Dianne Wiest, and Goran Visnjic

Synopsis: Two witch sisters, raised by their eccentric aunts in a small town, face closed-minded prejudice and a curse which threatens to prevent them ever finding lasting love.

Review: While the movie mostly takes place in Fall and ends on Halloween, it’s got many of the makings of a Halloween movie.  I really liked it.  The bond the sisters have is amazing.  It kept me guessing.  It had enough spooky to keep me on the edge of my seat without being totally grossed out.

Scoring: 4

Return To Halloweentown (Movie 4 Of 4)
Rated: PG
Genres: Comedy, Family, Fantasy
Starring: Debbie Reynolds, Judith Hoag, Sara Paxton, Lucas Grabeel, and Joey Zimmerman

She finds a box that says,"S.Cromwell."She learns her grandmother's true identity.She has to choose to either use the Cromwell Gift or not.
Review:  This sequel takes place almost entirely in Halloweentown. It shows a whole other angle and side to this world. Younger children may not find this one as engaging as the previous three but I enjoyed the story, even with a different Actress playing Marnie. 
Scoring: 4
Scooby-Doo
Rated: PG
Genres: Adventure, Comedy, Fantasy
Starring: Matthew Lillard, Freddie Prinze, Jr., Sarah Michelle Gellar, Linda Cardinelli, Rowan Atkinson, and Isla Fischer

Review:  If you’re a Scooby-Doo fan you’ll like this movie. They capture the animated characters as well as humans can. The plot is straight out of one of their cartoons. Lots of silliness and a little corny but definitely fun. 
Scoring: 3
Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed
Rated: PG
Genres: Adventure, Comedy, Fantasy
Starring: Matthew Lillard, Freddie Prince, Jr., Sarah Michelle Gellar, Linda Cardinelli, Seth Green, Peter Boyle, and Alicia Silverstone
Synopsis: The Mystery Inc. gang must save Coolsville from an attack of past unmasked monsters brought to life by an evil masked figure trying to "unmask" the gang.
Review:  Like the first movie, this is one Scooby-Doo fans will like. It follows the same silly adventures of the gang without being too scary. 
Scoring: 3
Twitches
Rated: TV-PG

Alex Fielding lost her mother three months ago and is alone seeking a job while Camryn Barnes lives with her beloved wealthy parents. Once together they find that they have magic powers and they should return to Coventry to save their biological mother and their kingdom from the Darkness.
Review:  This family-friendly movie is loads of fun. It has the classic good versus evil with the bonus of reuniting twins and a cast of colorful characters. The comparison between one twin brought up by a struggling single mother and one brought up with great wealth and two parents is interesting. This is an annual must see movie for us. 
Scoring: 4
Twitches Too
Rated: TV-PG
Genres: Comedy, Drama, Family, Fantasy
Starring: Tia Mowry-Hardricht, Tamara Mowry-Housley, Karen Holness, Arnold Pinnock, Kristen Wilson, Patrick Fabian, Leslie Sieler, and Pat Kelly
Synopsis: After using their powers to battle the forces of darkness, the sisters settle down to lead normal lives. However, the discovery that their biological father may not be dead, but residing in New York, causes confusion for the pair.
Review:  This sequel has the same magic as the first movie. We get to learn more about their kingdom and see them unite to battle evil. Another annual must see for us. 
Scoring: 4
The Witches
Rated: PG
Genres: Adventure, Comedy, Fantasy 
Starring: Anjelica Huston, Rowan Atkinson, and Brenda Blethyn
Synopsis: A young boy, recently orphaned, is taken to England by his grandmother. At a hotel in which they are staying, a group of witches have gathered to prepare a plot to rid England of all children.
Review:  Based on the book by Ronald Dahl, this movie is a fantastical adventure. Anjelica Huston makes an amazing witch and children will enjoy Luke’s adventures, as a mouse, as he tries to stop the witches. 
Scoring: 3

Z-O-M-B-I-E-S

Rated: G

Genres: Family, Fantasy, Musical, Romance

Starring: Milo Manheim and Meg Donnelly 

Synopsis: Students from Zombietown are transferred to a high school in a suburban town preoccupied with uniformity, traditions and pep rallies.

Review:  This is similar to the Descendants movies except the villains are replaced with zombies.  I like Descendants but the music and dancing in this film were exceptional.  It keeps a good pace and the story has a good message.  Embrace what makes you unique rather than trying hard to fit in.  The zombies aren’t gory or scary for children.  This is a fun movie.

Scoring: 4
