Don’t Look Under the Bed (1999, dir. Kenneth Johnson)

I’ll be honest guys: I didn’t finish watching Don’t Look Under the Bed. I made it halfway through and thought, this is enough. I’ve looked under the bed and there’s just no reason to continuing the film hiding under there.

All Hallows Eve (2016, dir. Charlie Vaughn)

Scooby Doo WWE WrestleMania Mystery (2014, dir. Brandon Vietti)

If there’s one mystery-solving gang we can rely on to adapt to the times, it’s Scooby and co. Heck, it’s a wonder Scoob is still alive after all this time but Mystery Inc. are always at the forefront of what the kids love. Fred’s ditched the ascot, Velma’s swapped a magnifying glass for a tablet, and WrestleMania is all the rage!!

Beauty and the Beast (2009, dir. David Lister)

Tale as old as time, song as old as rhyme, this time they solve murders.

The Worst Witch (1986, dir. Robert Young)

Pretty sure everybody who grew up in the 90s and 00s remembers watching Worst Witch/forgetting to turn the channel over whilst an episode was on. Heck, I even ended up at uni with one of the girls from the reboot (sadly not Rogue One star Felicity Jones though- shame). What you may not be so familiar with is the 80s feature length film about the hapless hex-caster.

Except you DO know this film because it gave us THIS:

When Good Ghouls Go Bad (2001, dir. Patrick Read Johnson)

For a town that’s terrified of Halloween, the kids in When Good Ghouls Go Bad sure like sneaking into crypts and speculating about dead teenagers, the morbid weirdos.

Halloween is banned in their town because in a flashback from the 80s a child who looked like the lost member of The Cure made a satanic statue and accidentally incinerated himself- yes, this is a family film. It’s kindof like if Toy Story 3 had gone down the far more grim story path.
