MOVIE POSTER MADNESS: Films That Take Place on Halloween (excluding the obvious)

Halloween is fast approaching; here's a compilation of posters from films that all take place on All Hallow's Eve - And they are all Michael Myers Free!
A great kids film from the 80's that hearkens back to something like Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein.
I know I saw this movie, but for the life of me, I can't recall much of it.
They came to Earth thanks to Orson Welles radio dramatization of War of the Worlds - hilarity ensues.
One of my all time fave Halloween comedy films - campy, silly and fun!
Yeah! A gay slasher film that takes place on Halloween night in West Hollywood - comes complete with lots of buff beefcake and a final boy.
Probably the greatest Halloween themed film of all time. Cary Grant has two doddering spinster aunts who take in lonely old men, have them drink elderberry wine laced with arsenic, and then bury them in their basement.

I always thought that HOCUS POCUS was a sort of unofficial sequel to EERIE, INDIANA, since it had both Omri Katz as the protagonist again dealing with more weirdness, and Jason Marsden as the voice of the cat.

And how awesome were the Marshall siblings?

"And how awesome were the Marshall siblings?"

As a married couple, no less!

Though The Crow technically takes place on Devil's Night, massive editing to the final product actually has it taking place on Halloween.

I guess that doesn't really count. I just like The Crow.

The killer in Hellbent was totally confused by what the phrase, "Getting Head" really mean't. Chika-Boom.
