Jacob’s Pick- “The Thing” (1982): Great practical special effects, memorable characters and a sense of isolated paranoia only the chilly Antarctic setting can give you. It only gets better the more you watch it.

Colton’s Pick- “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” (1966): Can we talk about a classic? This movie is on the must-watch list every year and never gets old.

Tyler’s Pick- “Hocus Pocus” (1993) is an opportunity every Halloween to enjoy a family-friendly film set in Salem with a comedic talking cat. It’s the classic struggle between teenager and witch. Who can’t relate to that?

Ariole’s Pick- “Twitches” (2005): The movie follows the plot of series, “Sister, Sister” where Tia and Tamera are adopted by separate families and eventually come together again. In “Twitches” they have awesome super powers, aside from being twins, and they defeat the power of darkness and save their family!

Amanda’s Pick- “Halloween III: Season of the Witch” (1982) – The most random movie in the “Halloween” franchise with no Michael Myers. The Silver Shamrock theme song will stay with you until your head explodes into bugs.

Sharon’s Pick- Tim Burton’s “Corpse Bride” (2005) is easily the movie of the season. Beautiful music, solid storytelling and a jazz band made exclusively of skeletons. My spooky heart is content.

Mason’s Pick- Claudio Fragasso’s “Troll 2” (1990) is often regarded as the “best worst movie,” and this cult classic is a must-see for any fan of the horror genre. It is the perfect combination of goblins (not trolls as the title would suggest), an evil Goblin Queen, green slime, a ghost grandfather, hostile townspeople, young love and a quotable script, driven by a cast that exemplifies the term overacting.
