I SAY IT'S THE GREATEST Halloween movie ever made for both adults and kids. I don't think I've ever watched a movie more than 8 to 9 times except for this one and Nightmare Before Christmas.
Mysterious character Moundshroud, played by Leonard Nimoy takes three kids and the ghost of another kid on a 4,000 mile journey back in time to learn about ancient Halloween customs amongst other things.
This movie is as well one of the greatest historical accounts and you'll be surprised what you didn't know about Halloween. It's a must see.
A group of two boys and a girl set out to go trick-or-treating on Halloween, only to discover that their friend, Pipkin, has been whisked away on a journey that could determine whether he lives or dies. Through the help of a mysterious character named Moundshroud, they pursue their friend across time and space through ancient Egyptian, Greek, and Roman cultures, Celtic Druidism, Notre Dame Cathedral in Medieval Paris, and The Day of the Dead in Mexico. Along the way, they learn the origins of the holiday that they celebrate, and the role that the fear of death has played in shaping civilization. The Halloween Tree itself, with its many branches laden with jack-o'-lanterns, serves as a metaphor for the historical confluence of these traditions.
