Given the versatility present in the horror genre, here are some options to watch as a family next Halloween. Don't miss out!
In the month of Halloween, it is common, to get in the mood, to marathon horror movies. With the new variety of original productions, the genre is in transformation and is moving away from the clichés.
Despite having a bloody plot and, at times, brutal violence, there are others with elements used in horror that promote laughter, good music, fun and, sometimes, good reflections.
The ghosts have fun
Remember when Tim Burton was one of the biggest names in genre cinema, always carrying with him a unique aesthetic and several adorably sick characters?
Well, one of the director's best films is the classic "Ghosts Have Fun", starring Michael Keaton and Winona Ryder, which premiered in 1988.
In the plot, a couple dies in a haunted house and their souls are trapped in a living world… This creates big problems when another couple will inhabit the same house.
As friction mounts, the ghosts “harbor” a dangerous entity, Betelgeuse, who comes to intimidate and scare the new residents.
The Addams Family
If the subject is family Halloween, nothing better than remembering the classic "The Addams Family", right?
This film version is based on the cartoons by Charles Addams and follows the adventures of the morbid Addams, who have the opportunity to meet their Uncle Chico, brother of the patriarch Gomez, who disappeared for years.
The film “Corpse Bride”, nominated for an Oscar for Best Animation, remains one of the most important cartoons of the 2000s, standing out as an excellent stop-motion that deals with many morbid themes and horrible characters in the sweetest way.
The film was undoubtedly a turning point in Tim Burton's career, showing his best work in matters of attention to detail and original genre. The film was highly praised by critics, and grossed almost one hundred and twenty million dollars.
