Reclining against the leather chair with popcorn and soda on standby, binge watching movies is a great way to spend the terrorizing Halloween night.
As Linus points towards the large orange fruit in the movie, “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown,” starring the famous white dog Snoopy, Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang provide great entertainment to viewers. This known Charlie Brown Halloween special, calls on viewers to recall their early childhood memories as they watched the Peanuts gang experience their first party and search for the legendary Great Pumpkin.
Families can sit around the TV and watch the film as it is equally enjoyable for all ages. While these classics appeal to a wide audience, some may prefer a scarier movie, such as “Monster House.” Starting with comedic moments, it begins to progressively darken, as the characters dive further into the haunted house, providing a scare for thrill-seekers and mature audiences.
Although “Monster House” is a relatively new movie, it has retained a strong appeal. The 2009 hit movie, “Coraline,” is about a young girl who finds strange things going on in her new home. This movie shows the audience that the grass is not always greener on the other side while also being entertaining with its breathtaking animation and clever plot.
Whether it is considered a Halloween or Christmas stop-motion movie is yet to be determined, but “The Nightmare Before Christmas” showcases Tim Burton’s unique sty-lings of characters with iconic body structures and interesting personalities.
