    Monster House

    Every neighborhood has that one mysterious house. You know, the one that’s kind of worn down and abandoned? When two boys ring the doorbell of Monster House, the door and windows swing open to pull things in and swallow them up. These two are going to have to buddy up to save the neighborhood.

    The Spiderwick Chronicles

    A secret house, messages written in dust, a dangerous book and…ogres? The Spiderwick Chronicles follows kids with a creature-deciphering book as they fight to keep it from angry goblins and ogres who want to steal it back. This scary movie doubles as an adventure film.

  • 3NightmareBeforeXmas.jpg

    The Nightmare Before Christmas

    After a lifetime of Halloween, Jack Skellington wakes up to a whole new concept: Christmas. Despite the holiday spirit, this movie is packed with monsters, skeletons and the living dead. This creepy animated movie just might make you want to sing along.

  • 4Ghostbusters.jpg


    This popular classic is all about the silly supernatural. As a spooky comedy, it’s a balance of LOL moments and out-of-control ghosts, making it the ultimate scary film for the whole family.

  • 5ParaNorman.jpg


    Norman doesn’t have many friends—living ones, at least. Being able to talk to the dead isn’t much of an advantage socially. Then a ghost delivers him an important message: His supernatural buds need him to use his gift to prevent an evil witch from waking up from her grave. This kid has guts!

  • 6WarmBodies.jpg

    Warm Bodies

    A mix of paranormal romance and comedy, this horror flick is one you won’t want to miss. The town might be in the midst of a zombie apocalypse, but R has a sense of humor you’ll wanna stay alive for.

  • 7TheCrucible.jpg

    The Crucible

    Based on Arthur Miller’s play and actual historical events, The Crucible tells the story of a Puritan witch hunt caused by one girl’s lies. You’ll have to watch the movie to find out who’s accused of meeting with the devil.

  • 8TheOthers.jpg

    The Others

    A new nanny confirms what the children already know: there are definitely ghosts in their house! It’s only a matter of time before their mom starts seeing them too. Grab your besties while you’re watching this thriller, because it does get creepy at points. But don’t worry, it’s totally blood-and-guts-free.

  • 9TheVillage.jpg

    The Village

    Two villages refuse to trespass into one another’s neighborhoods. But when red marks appear on the doors, the new settlers know they’re not welcome. Who’s about to cross into the forbidden forest to settle the mess? This drama is totally manageable but still a bit spooky.
