Scarily tight trousers!
Everyone's favourite 80s film, starring the one and only David Bowie as Jareth the Goblin King. It's fair to say that this is probably the only film that features a blue haired talking worm, a dog/knight called Sir Didymus, talking door knockers and a grumpy dwarf called Hoggle. Directed by Jim Henson, Labyrinth is the perfect family friendly Halloween film.
The original Nightmare.
A Nightmare on Elm Street is the first appearance of one of cinema's most terrifying villains, Freddy Krueger. Burnt alive, Freddy is taking revenge on his killers from beyond the grave by murdering their children while they sleep.
All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.
