The Hallween Tree....Out Now!
Sit on the edge of your seat and enjoy master storyteller Ray Bradbury's classic adventure of four youths who try to save the spirit of their friend Kip from the ghosts of Halloween past. The four encounter a mysterious character, Moundshroud who takes them on a magical journey that sweeps them back as far as 4,000 years and touches down in exotic places all over the world like Egypt, England, France and Mexico. Along the way they discover the magic and meaning of Halloween - and friendship. This enchanting adventure features the voice talents of Leonard Nimoy as Moundshroud and the animation wizardry of Hanna-Barbera. It's a story as timeless as Halloween itself - a bubbling cauldron of thrills and suspense that will stir the imagination of the entire family. Bradbury's popular story is destined to become a perennial Halloween favorite.
This movie was created back in 1993 but it was my first time watching it. The kids and I loved it! It is all about four children helping a friend find his spirit. It may be too spooky for little, little ones (Little R did not watch) but it is just the right amount of spooky for older ones. My 6 year olds were spooked without being too scared. I have to say, I found the DVD to be very interesting. It managed to share some of the history of Halloween within the story without bogging down the movie. Well done! This a Halloween treat for the whole family. Pick up your copy today on Amazon.....
