Tower of Terror– A Hollywood hotel’s haunted attraction is open for the season, but an elevator malfunctions and takes some visitors to a real-life version of hell. Coming soon: a NEW version starring Black Widow herself, Scarlett Johannson!
Monsters Inc.– Mike and Sully, while working on their scaring skills, are caught off-guard when a little girl they were hired to scare runs away-right into the clutches of Randall, an evil child-hating monster.
Monsters University– Mike and Sulley are an inseparable pair, but that wasn’t always the case. From the moment these two mismatched monsters met they couldn’t stand each other.
The Haunted Mansion– A realtor (Eddie Murphy) and his family get more than they bargained for when they visit an old mansion that they thought was abandoned.
Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas– When Jack Skellington, the king of Halloween Town, attempts to bring Christmas to the land of Halloween, things don’t go exactly as planned.
Halloweentown High– Marnie (Kimberly J. Brown) would prefer not to use magic if she can help it, so she finds herself at odds with her whole family; meanwhile Dad tries to fit into his role as principal after taking over from Mom–who was fired by the school board.
Hocus Pocus– Thanks to a teenager that lights a black flame candle, the three Sanderson sisters return after over 300 years and find that things aren’t quite what they remembered. This is my absolute FAVORITE Disney Halloween movie, and I watch it several times every year!
Spooky Buddies– The adorable golden retriever puppies in this movie are recruited by a witch to be her “pawsome” helpers on Halloween night.
Toy Story of Terror– What starts out as a fun trip in the family car to spend Halloween with Aunt Ginny turns into an old-fashioned nightmare when Woody’s evil double gets the best of him.
Halloweentown II: Kalabar’s Revenge– Marnie’s back in her hometown, and this time she has to save the town from an evil witch who wants to steal everyone’s souls.
Maleficent– When a powerful fairy is injured, she seeks revenge against the prince who betrayed her.
Into the Woods– A witch places a curse of the baker and his wife, and they must venture through the woods to undo it. Along the way they run into several fairy tale characters that play a part in their journey.
Coco– A boy accidentally travels to the land of the dead in search of his ancestors, but finds a place that holds the secret of why music is banned in his family.
