What is a good Halloween Movie for kids?

Halloween is quickly approaching, and I was thinking it would be fun to make a list of good Halloween Movies for kids. In no particular order, here are three that I have come up with:

1- The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad (The Legend of Sleepy Hollow)
2- Hocus Pocus
3- Death Becomes Her

It's been ages since I've actually seen any of these, and so I can't say they are really good, or that they are appropriate for kids. That's why I'm asking for your help. Please let me know what your ideas are.

Not sure of the ages you have, but there is a cute Pooh Halloween movie, as well as a House of Mouse DVD where the villains take over. Love it because it has many of the old school Disney Halloween shorts.

Definetly Hocus Pocus and the Halloween town movies.

Unless they are teens, I wouldn't keep Death Becomes Her on that list- it is pretty dark with lots of sexual innuendo/partial nudity and cursing (and I am not a prude in the least).

Good Halloween movies for tweens:
-any of the Halloweentown movies
-Twitches and the sequel
-Hocus Pocus
-Haunted Mansion
-Tower of Terror
-Nightmare Before Christmas
-Monster House
-Scary Godmother
-The Little Vampire
-Casper
-Addams Family and Addams Family Values
-House of Mouse House of Villians

For younger kids:
-Adventures of Ichabod and Mr Toad
-It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown
-Pooh's Heffalump Halloween Movie
-Mickey Mouse Clubhouse- Mickey's Treat

This is GREAT!

I haven't ever heard of the Halloweentown series, but it looks like it might be worth watching.

I'll definitely keep the kids away from Death Becomes Her. I seemed to remember it was something I watched when I was a little older.

How could I have forgotten The Great Pumpkin?!?!

Any thoughts on Double, Double Toil and Trouble, with the Olsen twins? I know, I know, it's the Olsen twins. I would deserve whatever I get with that (insert Pete's voice for that last sentence).

There's also Coraline and the Corpse Bride

One we used to watch when we were kids was Monster Party.

As a youth, I remember people talking about Watcher in the Woods and Something Wicked This Way Comes. Does anyone know about either of those?

I LOVED The Watcher in he Woods. Seriously, Bette Davis was great. I have the book in a trunk with all of my other don't touch childhood books. I watched the movie with my kids a few years ago. I may have gotten it from Netflix.
