Invasion of the Body Snatchers

3.) Paranorman

An animated film that I saw a while back, Paranorman is about a kid who is often bullied for being “weird.”  However, he has a very special secret– he sees and can talk to ghosts.  Will this talent be a curse or a blessing?  This movie is recommended for those who like ghost movies and recognize the power in being different.

2.) Invasion of the Body Snatchers (original black and white, 1956)

How would you feel if you saw a copy of yourself in a pod secretly placed in your living room?  Absorbing and suspenseful, Invasion of the Body Snatchers is perfect for anyone looking for an entertaining, classic horror film.

1.) E.T

I’ve seen this movie many times.  Although not necessarily in the “Halloween” or “Horror” categories, this film takes place during Halloween at one point and sets an eerie, sci-fi film atmosphere.  The movie is about an alien who is trapped on Earth and tries to find its way back home.  Most of the film involves the alien’s friendship with a young boy and his family.  A sweet, funny story about family and friendship, E.T. is the perfect October movie for anyone with a love for 80’s films.
