What if it was also a barrier to the realm of monsters? In Disney’s Halloweentown the idea of a world full of monsters becomes a reality.

Is it Real
I enjoyed the film and it’s approach on what occurs on Halloween. The film plays tribute to ideas that were created during the first Halloween. I would give this film a six out of ten rating. I was expecting the monsters to be more realistic and instead of being goofy costumes. The movie’s story about family sticking together was a good message and there was an interesting range of characters.
The movie questions how people would react if the monsters from legends were real. That monsters wish to live normal lives despite their unique appearances. Showing that they would rather be left alone then scaring humans in our realm.
