Monster House


This one's for the year that you assumed you were too grown up for Halloween. Steven Spielberg always works magic on nostalgia and the period of our lives that we started to say 'good bye' to being a kid and this one won't let you down. This animated film breathes life into the spooky world where our imaginations can get the best of us.

The American Scream


This "technical documentary" looks into the night three families in the small town of Fairhaven in Massachusetts prep their house for the ultimate Halloween Home Haunting. Watch as families transform their homes into extravagant haunted attractions for Halloween. It's fascinating.
