Spooky Movies for the Weak of Heart

Okay, don't laugh. I'm not a big fan of scary movies because...well, I get scared and can't go to sleep. Overactive imagination, I guess. Here are two movies that are scary-themed, but charming and delightful. Can't go wrong with them as a good choice for Halloween viewing, especially if you have little ones in the house.

Director/Producer Tim Burton is my go-to guy for fun Halloween themed movies.

Who doesn't love Jack Skellington? And Oogie (the boogieman) is kind of chilling in his own musically cool way. Nightmare before Christmas is great for October through Christmas. A scary tale of Santa Claws replacing Santa Claus with disastrous consequences.

And how can you not love a love story, even if one of the lovers is, um, fleshly challenged? Corpse Bride was sweet and funny. Who says zombies have to be evil?

Besides, it's Johnny Depp!

Tim Burton has continued with another stop-motion animated movie for this Halloween. Frankenweenie looks like a lot of fun. I'm also waiting for the live action Dark Shadows to creep up my Netflix list.

And for the old school ghost story, what's not to love about Casper? If you're too young to have gone to the movie house and be treated with a cartoon before the main feature, then you might be missing a lot of fun stuff. I lived for Looney Tunes.
