Fun Movies For Halloween

Ghostbusters (1984)- Things in the World you know that are real can become a little too real. Just ask Ray Stanz (Dan Aykroyd), Peter Venkman (Bill Murray), and Evon Spengler (Harold Ramis). These guys know ghosts exist but they can't prove it until they become aware of a real threat from beyond the grave. Also Venkman becomes infatuated with a beautiful musician (Sigourney Weaver) who's having problems of her own when the threat targets her. Can the guys find out just what's going on before it's too late?



Big Trouble in Little China (1986)- Life can be pretty easy going until it throws you a bit of a curveball. Just ask Jack Burton (Kurt Russell). Jack is a truck driver passing through San Francisco and decides to look up his old friend Wang (Dennis Dun). Events take a turn of the weird kind when Wang's fiance gets kidnapped by a street gang working for a supernatural power looking to conquer the World. Jack;s not sure what to make of everything going on. He only knows he has to find a way to deal with it. Will Jack deal with it with things getting weirder by the minute?

The Monster Squad (1987)- Kids don't really have to with anything scary. All that's about to change. Sean (Andre Gower), Patrick(Ronny Kiger), Horace (Brent Chalem), and Rudy (Ryan Lambert) are all part of a Monster club and they know everything there is to know about monsters. Their knowledge is about to be put to the test like never before. It turns out Dracula (Duncan Regehr) is very real and he's come to Sean's hometown looking for a mystical amulet that can bring about the end of all Monsters. Sean receives this little piece of heaven in the mail and becomes a target. Now only him and his friends can stop Dracula along with the Wolfman, the Mummy, the Creature from the Black Lagoon, and Frankenstein's Monster. Are the boys up to the job?

The Boy Who Cried Werewolf - There are things in the world that can scare you. Jordan (Victoria Justice) and Hunter (Chase Ellison) live with their Dad and they're about to receive some unexpected news. They have just inherited a mysterious castle in Europe overseen by a strange but kind caretaker named Madame Varcolac (Brooke Shields). Hunter and Jordan decide to go exploring even when they're told to not go out at night. In their exploring, they find a hidden lab. Jordan picks something up and she gets exposed to something that brings out her hidden beast. Hunter knows she's becoming a werewolf. No one believes him. Not even Jordan. He'll have to find a way to make everyone believe because not only is Jordan in trouble but now a pack of vampires want to take over their castle. Is Hunter going to do it?

It's time for the laughs and the scares to come to a close. All new movies for next time including a new Toddster's take for Carrie. So you'll want to be here next time. The Toddster is out of here.
