Coraline (Dakota Fanning) and her parents move from Michigan to Oregon, where they work jobs that cause her to be home alone the majority of the time. After receiving a mysterious doll from one of her new neighbours, Coraline discovers the Other World, which includes Other Mother and Other Father, parents who are much more attentive to Coraline than her own. Coraline soon discovers that the world is not what it seems and tries to make her way back home and to her real parents.
Hocus Pocus (1993)
Three witches (played by Sarah Jessica Parker, Bette Midler and Kathy Najimy) return 300 years after being hung for their spellwork in 17th-century Salem, Massachusetts. To hold onto immortality, they have to take the life of a child, and the three kids who accidentally resurrected them are doing all they can to stop the witches from returning Salem to the way it was when they first lived. This movie has witchcraft, black cats, potions, and many funny scenes – a staple for Halloween.
