As the tenth month dies, and just before we welcome the eleventh month, there is a night on which the lines between our world and the spiritual world are blurry and that's when the ghosts and monsters come to feed. We also call this piece of fictional belief Halloween. It is unclear where the concept originated from or there is no proof to support this but as Halloween comes around the corner, people start to re-visit all the horror movies and play dress-up as monsters and what-not. This festival is definitely not for the faint-hearted or for the people who scare easily. Not only do they become the target of all the pranks but they also have to sit through horror movie marathons which are too scary for them. But not this year. This year, in the comfort of your home, you can watch a different kind of movie marathon. Disney has been gracious enough to give us movies around the theme of magic and monsters without making them too scary. Why don't we take advantage of that and have a magical Halloween instead of a horrific one?
The name itself suggests that it is the perfect watch for Halloween with its portrayal of a mystical place called Halloweentown where all those magical characters you hear about actually exist. It has its share of mystery and magic making it a fun marathon.
Can of Worms
Do you often get this feeling that you don't belong on this planet and you actually are an alien? Well, the lead character in the movie feels the same way and decides to actually do something about opening a can of worms which should have remained close.
This movie based on the book of the same name is about these twin witches in our present day world and how they save the world together. There are flip phones, magic and some more magic. What else do you need?
Girl Vs Monster
This 2012 movie about a family of monster-hunters is the perfect watch for Halloween. With its simple message of letting go of your fears, it is possible you might not need this list by next Halloween.
Phantom of the Megaplex
Loosely based on The Phantom of the Opera, this 16-year-old movie is about a phantom who is on the loose in a multiplex and some teenagers are assigned the task of capturing it before all hell breaks loose.
It's time to microwave your pop corn, and get ready to have a magical weekend this Halloween.
