It wouldn't be officially fall without Coraline, the story of a young girl who discovers an alternate world that is strikingly similar to her normal life-- but better. Though it may seem this parallel universe grants her every wish, this new world may prove too good to be true. Coraline is dark, suspenseful, and eerie, yet the perfect comfort movie for the cold autumn months.
In a world of magic, witch sisters Sally and Gillian, share the same upbringing but wildly different personalities. While Gillian leaves their small town to explore a world beyond their eccentric family, Sally stays behind and swears off the use of her magic-- unless practical. In adulthood, the two sisters are reunited to break a curse that prevents them from finding their common desire: true & everlasting love. Visually stunning and at times a little cheesy, Practical Magic is a movie you'll find yourself rewatching over and over for the same warm feeling.
Knives Out is a contemporary whodunnit film which follows the Thrombey family, a dysfunctional bunch that discovers their loving patriarch murdered.
