Hocus Pocus

Genre: Fantasy/Horror

We’re starting you off strong with this ultimate classic, Hocus Pocus! We have a whole lot of love for Hocus Pocus because it gives childhood nostalgia, AND it’s also just as good watching it as an adult as it was when we watched it as kids. Before you run off and watch Hocus Pocus 2 (which just came out!), be sure to watch the OG Hocus Pocus and find out what type of magic you are getting yourself into.

Corpse Bride

Genre: Fantasy/Family

If you love The Nightmare Before Christmas, you will be obsessed with Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride.

The root is actually the finger of a dead bride Emily, Voiced by Helena Bonham Carter, and she takes him away to the Land of the Dead.
