Isn’t Halloween all about broomsticks and cauldrons, witchcraft and wizardry and all things magic? Well, then how can our very own Harry Potter movie series not find its name in the list? The protagonist and his friends’ adventures in the wizarding world are unparalleled. It’s like a fantasy roller-coaster with all the thrills at the right places. Dark, exciting, funny, humorous, mysterious, stirring… the list is endless.
How to Train Your Dragon
Wherever fire-breathing dragons are involved, there’s bound to be an air of spookiness and fear. But then enter a group of entertaining young dragon riders who consider the dragons their beloved pets and the entire picture changes. Exhilarating 3D flight sequences aboard the dragons over the blue seas and high mountain peaks, comedic moments thanks to a bunch of extremely amusing and fun-loving characters in the group and dragon games based on the movie characters themselves – this one is a complete package.
The Addams Family
E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial
This Steven Spielberg classic had to be a part of my list (I love it so very much!) even if for the simple reason that one of its most popular and iconic scenes takes place on the day of Halloween. Needless to say, Spielberg’s story is nothing short of magical and akin to pure fantasy – how three kids give shelter and take care of an extra-terrestrial being from outer space. My all-time favorite scene? The silhouette of Elliott and E.T. pedaling across a wonderful full moon. And here is proof that this evergreen classic is still going strong.
Happy Halloween, folks!
