This is one of the greatest movies I have ever seen and I recommend it to anyone of any age who likes Halloween. It is an awesome story of friendship, discovery, and mystery. Ray Bradbury wrote a masterpiece and it was made into a fantastic film. I have watched it since I was very young and still watch it over and over every year. I think that anyone of any age will enjoy this movie. It does not follow what some call the "Halloween plot" of children going trick or treating the entire night. It is different but prodigious. The children save their friend while learning the history of Halloween. The ending is one of the best parts, but I hate to see that part of the movie because it is the end. I seriously recommend this movie to watch on Halloween, or even any part of the year. I love it.
