A Halloween classic that should be on dvd by now!
on 6 November 2008
Oh my Gosh! i have this VHS tape and my nephew and I watch it every halloween! Ray bradbury wrote a wondeful book, but the cartoon network made it into a classic animated movie that will remain one of my favorite memories of halloween!
The story in this movie is much more streamlined than the novel, and the story goes by in a far more fluid way. You find yourself actually wanting to see more of the history of halloween around the world. (Vampires... anyone??)
This movie tells the story of a group of children who go looking for there friend Pip on a halloween night. The only problem is that a soul grabbing man named mounshroud is also looking for the young boy.
In there search they find out the history of halloween around the world and try to figure out a way to get Pip back without him losing his soul! (It's not as childish as it sounds!)
I urge anyone (Any Age) who has not seen this to rent it, buy it, borrow it, download it! it will be a story you remember and cherish for many years to come.
And i really hope they put this on DVD soon! children and adults around the world are missing out on such a great movie!
