This week we’re featuring our favorite Family-friendly Halloween movies! Jenna Bossart, our Special Collections Technician, recommended Coraline, Corpse Bride, Practical Magic, and Hocus Pocus (already checked out!). Hunter King and Kelly Shea, our two Presser Music Library Technicians both recommended It’s a Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!
Corpse Bride, directed by Tim Burton, is based on a 19th century Russian folktale, where a man accidentally marries a corpse on a journey to the village of his true future bride. Coraline, directed by Henry Selick, is based on the 2002 novella by Neil Gaiman and is one of the highest grossing stop-motion films of all time. You’ll get witches a-plenty with Practical Magic and Hocus Pocus (my personal favorite family Halloween movie). And you can’t possible go wrong with the Charlie Brown-themed Halloween classic.
Request your new and favorite Halloween movies through the library catalog in order to get them in time for Halloween!
