Is there a movie that gives you a taste of what Halloween is like?

Is there a movie that shows what Halloween is like?
I plan to start an elective course, American Culture, in which I’d like to introduce holidays like Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc. I think apart from articles, video can give the kids a better taste of the holidays. Could anybody recommend a movie that might show the detailed activities of Halloween such as carving the pumpkins, dressing up, visiting haunted attractions, trick or treat and so on?

    There’s no specific movie that I can think of that would detail all of what your’e asking and not over-emphasize a comical or horror movie aspect to it. I know that on many travel, cooking, and history channels (at least in the U.S.), they provide a various amount of holiday specials which give us an insight into the traditions, foods, and festivities that accompany the holiday. Being that we’re in October, I’m already starting to see those specials on tv. Maybe you can look into recording those specials and show them to your students.
