Great Stuff
30 December 2002 | by twinnie2kSee all my reviews

An exciting educational film that children will love, the parents will too. This isn't a boring halloween kids movie it shows children why they go out on halloween dressed up as ghosts, mummies, witches and monsters and has a really heart warming ending. I recommend this for children to watch before halloween night so they can get excited about dressing up. (who doesn't)
