Must Watch Halloween Films





It’s October, the time when monsters, ghouls and wicked creatures come out to play. So, to get you into the ‘Halloween’ spirit, (PUN unintended) here is a list of SPARKS’ top 10 halloween movies: 

 1. Sabrina the Teenage Witch


On her 16th birthday, Sabrina discovers that she is a witch. Sabrina then develops a crush on Seth, the cutest boy in school who happens to be dating Katie La More, the school's "Queen Bee". Sabrina has to find a way to use her newly discovered magical power to get Seth to notice her, but at the same time not cast a love spell.

After Katie dumps Seth, he starts to notice Sabrina. Sabrina is able to use her magic to win a track competition and get Seth to ask her to the Spring fling. Katie discovers Sabrina's secret and sets out to let everyone know what Sabrina is. Sabrina has to use her magic to turn Katie into a poodle to stop her but later changes her back. All the while, Harvey likes Sabrina and waits to see if she will have a change of heart and start to notice him. Will she go with her heart?



 2. Nightmare on Elm Street



In the early 1980's, a psychopath named Freddy Krueger - known as the Springwood Slasher - murdered several children with a glove outfitted with straight razor blades attached to the fingers. When a foolish decision by a judge sets him free, Krueger is burned alive in the boiler room where he worked by an angry mob of the parents whose children he terrorised & murdered. Years after his death, the children whose parents were responsible for Krueger's death - including Nancy Thompson, daughter of the police officer who arrested Krueger - are experiencing terrifying nightmares involving a burned man wearing a glove with razor blades on the fingers. The ghost of Freddy Krueger is haunting their dreams, and when Nancy's best friend Tina dies in her sleep violently during a dream confrontation with Krueger, Nancy realises she must find a way to stop the evil psychopath's reign of terror - or never sleep again...


3. Edward Scissorhands

In a castle high on top of a hill lives an inventor's greatest creation - Edward a near-complete person. The creator died before he could finish Edward’s hands; instead, he is left with metal scissors for hands.

At first, everyone welcomes him into the community, but soon things begin to take a change for the worse.



4. The Addam’s Family

Can the doctor carry out her evil plans and take over the Addams Family's fortune?



5. The Nightmare Before Christmas



Jack Skellington, the pumpkin king of Halloween Town, is bored with doing the same thing every year for Halloween. One day he stumbles into Christmas Town, and is so taken with the idea of Christmas that he tries to get the resident bats, ghouls, and goblins of Halloween town to help him put on Christmas instead of Halloween– but alas, they can't get it quite right.



6. Carrie (The 1976 Version)

After her class mates taunt her about her horrified reaction to her totally unexpected first period one of them takes pity on her and gets Tommy Ross, her boyfriend and class hunk to invite Carrie to the senior prom. Meanwhile another girl who has been banned from the prom for her continued aggressive behaviour is not as forgiving and plans a trick to embarrass Carrie in front of the whole school. What she doesn't realise is that Carrie is ... gifted, and you really don’t want to get her angry.



7. Coraline


When Coraline moves to an old house, she feels bored and neglected by her parents. She finds a hidden door with a bricked up passage. During the night, she crosses the passage and finds a parallel world where everybody has buttons instead of eyes, with caring parents and all her dreams coming true. When the Other Mother invites Coraline to stay in her world forever, the girl refuses and finds that the alternate reality where she is trapped is only a trick to lure her.


8. Corpse Bride
