Mad Monster Party (Lionsgate)

Not everything you watch has to be pants-fillingly terrifying. Remember Rankin and Bass? The stop-motion animators who are as synonymous with Christmas as fir trees thanks to Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and The Year Without Santa Claus? Well, did you know they once made a Halloween special? This is it – newly restored and released as a special edition DVD in 2009. It's cheesy, sure, but it has the same kind of clunky charm as the Christmas offerings. Plus an animated Boris Karloff! (And, um, Phyllis Diller). A great Halloween party backdrop kind of DVD.
