As we get closer and closer to Halloween, you can see the decorations going up around the neighborhood, and kids are starting to plan what it is they're going to wear to go out and get all that Halloween candy.
Well the movie industry obliges as well — usually a number of horror films are released around this time of year, and you can also find many of them airing on television (often in the form of some sort of movie marathon).
One of my Halloween favorites borders on being a little bit scary, but it's probably considered more of an American adventure/fantasy film. It's 1995's Jumanji, based on the 1981 Chris Van Allsburg children's book of the same name.
The story centers on a young boy (Alan Parrish) who gets trapped in a board game with his best friend (Sarah Whittle) back in 1969. 26 years later, siblings Peter and Judy Shepherd start playing the game and unknowingly release a now adult Alan, played by Robin Williams.
In this week's Flicks in Five, we'll hear some of James Horner's raucous score from Jumanji.
