It’s almost Halloween!!!
An exciting time of the year for mini ones especially those that love dressing up and watching scary children’s movies and go trick or treating. Mr Squishy came along with us trick or treating for the first time last year and he had the most amazing time.
To get into the Halloween spirit we are working with Warner Bros UK to tell you all about some great Halloween movies which your family will love and also to bring you a fabulous competition. You could Win a Family Halloween DVD Bundle!
It’s a oldie but a goodie. I have to admit I love this Tim Burton movie. Have you seen it yet? It’s about a couple Barbara (Geena Davis) and Adam Maitland (Alec Baldwin) who are killed in a car accident. They return home as ghosts and try to continue as they were until new owners move in. They fail to scare the new owners so in their desperation they ask Beetlejuice (Michael Keaton) for help. Cue the insanity and humour. This is a move you are bound to love!
For more adult movies that would be perfect to watch at Halloween take a look ‘here‘.
This is a fantastic movie that I have seen with the children numerous times. Again by Tim Burton this is set in Victorian England. Victor (Johnny Depp) and Victoria’s (Emily Watson) are preparing for their arranged marriage but shy Victor can’t remember his vows. He runs to the forest to practise his vows after making a complete mess during the rehearsal and whilst practising places the ring onto what he believes to be a root of a tree which is actually the finger of a murdered woman Emily (Helena Bonham Carter). Emily his new bride takes the confused Victor to the Land of the Dead whilst the evil Barkis Bittern (Richard E. Grant) tries to marry muscle in on the sweet and innocent Victoria. There are a few twists and turns but true love prevails and evil gets it’s comeuppance. This gets a thumbs up from the whole family and is a popular movie for many of my adult friends too.
Who doesn’t love Scooby Doo movies and this one is perfect to watch during Halloween. The gang investigate a bayou island said to be haunted by the ghost of the pirate Morgan Moonscar. It isn’t long before they are up against werecats and zombies. This movie is perfect for all my little ones to enjoy.
Another great movie both girls have also enjoyed reading the book. This adaptation of the popular Roald Dahl is a must watch. Luke lives with his grandmother after the death of his parents. His grandmother Helga has been telling Luke about her experiences with Witches and when they travel together to a British Seaside resort he gets to see real Witches close up. Under the guise of a charity the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children Witches from around the world have come for a convention with the Grand High Witch (Angelica Houston) who plans to tun all the children around the world into mice. Will she succeed with her dastardly plan? I won’t give it away for those that might not have see this but needless to say it’s a fantastic movie.
