Harvie and the Magic Museum

Focus on the paranormal side of Halloween in this animated film from the Czech Republic. Here’s the premise — a young, troubled, 10-year-old boy accidentally activates legendary magic, which brings puppets to life. Sounds kind of wild. But what is even more wild is that this magic also brings back an evil puppeteer, who wants to turn the entire city into a puppet stage.

This is the kind of weird, paranormal film that perfectly encompasses the super fun, unpredictable spirit of Halloween. What’s not to love about it? Especially since the concept is so out of this world!

Harvie and the Magic Museum is rated TV-PG.

Don’t say his name three times fast. Beetlejuice is a quirky film from the late ‘80s about two ghosts who enlist the help of a rambunctious spirit, Beetlejuice, to help chase away the Deetz family from moving into their home. But Beetlejuice turns out to cause more chaos than expected.

While the film is filled with spooky jump scares, some cursing, and some sexual references, which might not be appropriate for all children. But if you’re still looking to have some big belly laughs and indulge in some serious nostalgia, then Beetlejuice is the perfect Halloween movie for you.

Beetlejuice is rated PG.

Sabrina Down Under

In this made-for-TV movie from the ‘90s, Sabrina the Teenage Witch learns about marine mammals who have fallen ill, including a handsome merman and his mermaid sister.

OK, so this movie technically is a flick that takes place in the summertime, with Sabrina exploring the mermaid reef. But Sabrina is technically a teenage witch, so she uses plenty of magic to help her through some seriously tricky situations. Not to mention, her talking black cat, Salem, is a big part of this film, so it definitely has that Halloween edge. Think of it as revisiting summer break.

Sabrina Down Under is rated TV-G.

Daphne and Velma

If you’ve ever watched Scooby-Doo and love the mystery solving masterminds behind the iconic cartoon, then you need to see Daphne and Velma.

This film is about two mystery solving teenagers, Daphne and Velma, who lead the investigation into the secrets behind the force that is turning their high school classmates into zombies. But that is where the Scooby-Doo references stop.

You won’t see the adorable dog, Scooby-Doo, his loyal friend, Shaggy, and any other members of Mystery Inc. in this film, so if you’re looking for something true to the source material, this probably isn’t the film for you. But, if you’re looking for a fun way to introduce your kids to the Scooby-Doo franchise, then this might be the way to do it.

Daphne and Velma is rated G.
