Win Four Family Halloween Movies From Warner Bros

We love Halloween here in the Hobbis household.  There’s nothing like snuggling up together under a blanket and watching some spooky Halloween family movies from Warner Bros.  Everyone has their own Halloween family traditions, don’t they?

Halloween family movies - Warner Bros Halloween DVDs

We’ve all got our favourites but which of these four would you choose to watch when the wind is howling outside and all is dark and gloomy?

Halloween family movies from Warner Bros

Read on to discover our favourite four – and how you can win a copy of each for yourself.


Halloween family movies - Beetlejuice DVD front cover


From film director Tim Burton, this is the story of the Maitlands (Geena Davis and Alec Baldwin) – a happy couple who are killed in a car crash and return as ghosts to their beloved home to wreak havoc on the ghastly yuppie family who has moved in.

Unfortunately, their attempts at haunting are ignored by all the family, with the exception of Goth daughter Lydia (Winona Ryder), who doesn’t mind one bit. At their wit’s end, the ghostly couple call on a despicably disgusting demon named ‘Beetlejuice’ (Michael Keaton) for help.

We found Beetlejuice to be equally funny and gruesome without being too scary – just don’t say his name out loud three times!

Corpse Bride

Halloween family movies - Corpse Bride DVD Front Cover


Another Tim Burton classic, Corpse Bride tells the story of two aristocratic families who pair off their children hoping they will be escalated into high society.  Unfortunately, when clumsy Victor Van Dort (Depp) rehearses his vows in the woods he accidentally marries the Corpse Bride (Bonham-Carter) which causes havoc with everyone’s plans.

We thought the corpse bride was hilarious with her maggot and popping eyeball.  The film is both romantic, ethereal and spooky.

Scooby-Doo Zombie Island

Halloween family movies - Scooby Doo On Zombie Island DVD front cover


In this feature-length animation, Scooby-Doo and the gang travel to a haunted island to investigate the ghostly legend of Moonscar the pirate, but soon find themselves tussling with cat creatures and zombies – could the ghouls actually turn out to be real for once?

We’ve always loved Scooby Doo and, of course, he and Shaggy are as brave as usual when confronting the monsters and zombies.

The Witches

Halloween family movies - The Witches DVD Front Cover


Adapted from Roald Dahl’s book “The Witches”, Luke and his wise grandmother Helga arrive at an English seaside hotel where the Royal Commission for Prevention of Cruelty to Children is holding a convention. Luke discovers that its members are not charity workers but wicked witches who plan to turn all children into mice – starting with him. The mouse-Luke must alert his aunt and stop their dastardly plan.

By turns funny and scary we loved Anjelica Houston as the Grand High Witch and it was great when the witches finally got a taste of their own medicine.
