**Spoiler Alert** This is more of a “my thoughts” than a legit review. I am going to discuss specific plot points and giving away the end, so if you haven’t seen it, don’t read this yet. Once you do, come back and we’ll discuss.
Continuing our month into Halloween movies for kiddos, week three found us hovering around a timeless classic, a new love and two VERY kid-friendly Halloween stories. Not many tricks this time, only treats and not much to spook anyone, but a few to melt the heart.
Here’s how our rating works;
One pumpkin for each of the following categories:
3- teach a lesson of some sort
4- have great music that moves the story and/or makes the spooky parts better
5- reference Halloween at least ONCE in the film.
Additionally, one “harvest moon” is awarded by each of them when they decide it’s a keeper. This is like their “bonus point”.
Stop the presses and hold the phones….

Week two of our Halloween Movie Countdown comes to a close with some beautiful, spooky, thunderstormy (yes, I just made that word up) weather as I write this. Perfect weather for Halloween movies! Curl up with a cozy blanket, a warm drink and check out what we watched this week!
It’s time for our first review recap! It was a busy week of decorating, movie watching and getting our Halloween groove on.
While watching our movies, we chose a simple rating system. They have to be 1- spooky, 2- charming, 3- teach a lesson of some sort, 4- have great music and 5- reference Halloween at least ONCE in the film. Additionally, they have to actually ENJOY it; one “harvest moon” is awarded when they decide it’s worth watching again.
