Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King is a character you’ll love by the end. He discovers Christmastown and plots to take control.

Dakota Fanning stars in this creepy tale about the risks of things that are too good to be true. This animated movie is an incredibly unique, one-of-a-kind story.

This movie is a classic. Think “sick” sense of humor and you’ll love this one. This family embraces everything dark, deadly and monstrous while living in an old, dark house.

Last but not least, another old time favorite, Casper. This friendly ghost inhibits the same mansion as his fellow ghosts who aren’t so nice. While they invent spooky methods for getting rid of the new humans in the house, Casper just wants a friend.
