The Addams family started out a comic strip, then became a television show, and turned into a movie for its third incarnation. The plot gets a little muddled, but Anjelica Houston, Raul Julia, and Christina Ricci were born to play their parts.


Batman

Batman

Beetlejuice

directed by Tim Burton
Rated PG
When a newlywed couple dies, they find their ghosts happily confined to the house they were lovingly restoring. Things change when an obnoxious couple buys their house and the maleveloent spirit they hired to scare the newcomers away turns out to have his own fiendish agenda.


Poltergeist

Poltergeist

directed by Tobe Hooper
Rated PG
When strange things start happening in a suburban house, it seems funny at first. But things get creepier, and more dangerous, when the family’s five-year-old daughter is kidnapped and held hostage in another dimension. A refreshing sense of humor sets Poltergeist apart from most horror movies.


Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas

Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas

directed by Henry Selick
Rated PG
Jack Skellington lives in Halloweentown, but he’s sure something better must be out there. That’s when he stumbles across Christmastown and tries to annex the holiday by kidnapping Santa Claus.

Young Frankenstein

Young Frankenstein

directed by Mel Brooks
Rated PG
Who said Halloween had to be scary? Spoofing horror movies in general and Frankenstein movies in particular, this classic is a loving tribute to old Hollywood and one of the funniest movies ever made.
