Be careful what you wish for with Coraline, an eerily eye-popping stop-motion animation tale of fractured dreams and families made whole.

I’m actually a total wuss, so scary films are off limits for me! However, the little emo kid that still lurks within me means it’s necessary to bring out The Nightmare Before Christmas every Halloween! It’s just so beautiful!
Charlotte from The Good Owl
Ooh, my favorite scary movie it’s a tough one as I’m a bit of a Scary movie film buff. I’d have to go with the last one that really frightened me Insidious – Something about that scary black veil and dress gave me the heebie-jeebies.
Alex from Alex a la Mode
My favourite Halloween film of all time isn’t actually that scary but I LOVE Hocus Pocus!
Terri from Hello Terri Lowe
With regards to scary films, have you ever seen the film Willard? It’s about rats and is scary in a non-classic Halloween way. I love it though!
