10.The Addams Family
An evil doctor finds out that Uncle Fester has been missing for 25 years and introduces a fake Fester in an attempt to get the Addams family fortune. It might be rather dated and weird but this film is actually good, too be honest with you I vaguely remember this while I growing up and I really admire this as it try to be something different.
During her family’s move to the suburbs, a sullen 10 years old girl wanders into a world ruled by gods, witches, and spirits, and where humans are changed into beasts. Might be rather surreal and a dreamlike film that is so enchanted, underneath those scary element in this film there is a beautiful story that is so moving and with a likeable lead.
8.The Haunted Mansion
A realtor and his wife and children are summoned to a mansion, which they soon discover is haunted, and while they attempt to escape, he learns an important lesson about the family he has neglected. Definitely an eye-catching film that will drawn you in from start to finish in this comedy horror, it is funny, charming and a film which is so watchable.
7.Scooby – Doo (2002 – 2014)
After an acrimonious break up, the Mystery Inc. gang are individually brought to an island resort to investigate strange going on, in the second film the gang must save Coolsville from past monsters. Both films are extremely funny that balance the comedy with the darker moment that work really well, with stunning SFX/CGI made this a worthwhile viewing.
A teenager teams up with the daughter of young adult horror author R.L. Stine after the writer’s imaginary demons are set free on the town of Madison, Delaware. Everything about Goosebumps certainly ticked all the boxes, it has got a bit of comedy, adventure, fantasy, and some horror that blended really well. the acting in general is really good with funny one liner in this good-looking film which is well intentioned.
An afterlife therapist and his daughter meet a friendly young ghost when they move into a crumbling mansion in order to rid the premises of wicked spirits. Gorgeous looking and thoroughly entertaining film, which is majestic, an easy-to-follow story with a childlike type of film and it isn’t too dark for the younger generation. It just a well-made film that ticked all the boxes for the right audience.
4.Wallace & Gromit: The Curse Of The Were – Rabbit
Wallace and his loyal dog, Gromit, set out to discover the mystery behind the garden sabotage that plagues their village and threatens the annual giant vegetable growing contest. One of those film that will put a smile on your face and it is pure escapism, there is a load of movie cliché which work really well and this will be your rainy-day film as it is joy to watch.
Three teenagers, DJ, Chowder and Jenny think that after mean old man Nebbercracker died from a heart attack at his house, they all think it’s over, but they are wrong. With this animation film the executive producer are Steven Spielberg and Robert Zemeckis, this is one is different especially the standout visual effect, the story itself is generally heartfelt in a good-looking film.
2.Monsters Vs Aliens
A woman transformed into a giant after she is struck by a meteorite on her wedding day becomes part of a team of monsters sent in by the U.S. government to defeat an alien mastermind trying to take over Earth. Pure enjoyment with an important message of appearances which I personally connect to, it is action packed with full of eccentric characters and their chemistry together is magnificent and with a star – studded cast that is so good.
In order to power the city, monsters have to scare children so that they scream. However, the children are toxic to the monsters, and after a child gets through, two monsters realize things may not be what they think. The reason why this film is my number one it has all the element of a family viewing is suitable for all ages, John Goodman and Billy Crystal is amazing and their chemistry work really well, one of the best PIXAR film and it the story is really simple.

Sorry Mark, I’m not a fan of Halloween so don’t feel that I can comment, although I did like the Addams family.
