4. The Witches
This adaptation on the famous Roald Dahl is known for its strong use of horror in a children movie. However this has softened with generations.

6. The Nightmare Before Christmas
Yup you’ve guessed it, another Tim Burton film. Jack Skellington, the pumpkin king of Halloween Town, is bored with doing the same thing every year for Halloween. One day he stumbles into Christmas Town, and is so taken with the idea of Christmas that he tries to get the resident bats, ghouls, and goblins of Halloween town to help him put on Christmas instead of Halloween, but they can’t get it quite right.

7. Casper
Carrigan hires afterlife therapist Dr. James Harvey to exorcise the ghosts from the mansion. Harvey and his daughter Kat move in, and soon Kat meets Casper, the ghost of a young boy who’s “the friendliest ghost you know” along with his not so friendly uncles Stretch, Fatso and Stinkie. Ultimately, it is up to Harvey and Kat to help the ghosts cross over to the other side.

8. Ghostbusters
A group of scientists get kicked out of their job at a university in New York City. They decide to set up shop in an old firehouse and become Ghostbusters, trapping pesky ghosts, spirits, haunts, and poltergeists for money.

9. Monsters Inc.
