t's rare to find an animated movie that engages kids while also entertaining the pissed off teenage siblings that were dragged to the theater along with the disgruntled parents that had to pay an arm and a leg for a popcorn and a soda for each member of the family.

alloween is upon us, with cheesy costumes, mountains of sugar filled, tooth destroying candy and dopey “horror” movies that emphasize on lame gags and focus solely on profits. Such a great time of year, do you not agree? The films of today are lacking in the horror aspect; shying away from an...
