So, without further ado, I give you Calliope's Domain's Top 5 Favourite Halloween Themed Movies.
#5 - Halloween (1978)
#4 - The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)
Say what you will about Tim Burton, but there's no question that his unique brand of film making lends itself very, very well to Halloween. I mean, heck, have you seen Beetlejuice? Corpse Bride? Alice in Wonderland? Frankenweenie? And way back in the beginning - or at least close enough to count - there was The Nightmare Before Christmas, which, okay, I admit may also qualify as a Christmas movie but seeing as how Jack hails from Halloween Town, I'm running with it. One of the best things about this movie is the stop animation, a film type that's always fascinated me. Basically, think of it like making one very long, very complicated flip book where, instead of using sketches, you're using photographs of puppets. Lots of photographs. Just imagining how long a single scene must take to film boggles the mind. And the results are amazing.
#3 - Hocus Pocus (1993)
#2 - The Crow (1994)
#1 - Casper (1995)
And there you have it, this week's Top 5 and, hey, take note - it's actually Sunday this time!
