1. Hocus Pocus



Hocus Pocus is feel-good, magical and set in Salem, Massachusetts. Kids will love rooting for heroes Dani, Max, Allison and Binx nearly as much as they'll enjoy enthusiastically booing the witch trio led by the brilliant Bette Midler.


2. Casper



Casper was so lovable he had us all wishing we could live in a mad old house in America just so we could hang out with him. Funny and packed full of heart, Casper is the perfect Halloween flick.


3. Beetlejuice



Beetlejuice is a bona fide Halloween classic. With wacky characters, mad as a brush Betelgeuse and laughs aplenty, it’s definitely one the kids will love as much as we do.


4. The Addams Family



Gloriously weird, The Addams Family is pure Halloween magic. From the first bars of the theme tune children will be hooked as they enter the family’s wildly imaginative world.


5. The Witches



Anjelica Huston is brilliantly spooky as the Grand High Witch in the film adaptation of Roald Dahl’s classic children’s book. The much-loved author’s special skill is making children see things in a different way, and it is truly brilliant!


6. Ghostbusters



"Who ya gonna call?" Ghosts are running wild in New York City while a team of exterminators set out to capture them. There is nothing about this movie your kid's won't adore. 


Sit back, relax and enjoy these spooky classics!
