if you're looking to get into the spirit of Halloween but scary movies are way too much for you, this double feature should do the trick.

At the nearby Midway Drive-In, 91 Palmyra Road in Sterling, Hocus Pocus, and The Nightmare Before Christmas will show back-to-back.

Hocus Pocus stars Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy.

A curious youngster moves to Salem, where he struggles to fit in before awakening a trio of diabolical witches that were executed in the 17th century.

The Nightmare Before Christmas was written by Tim Burton and directed by Henry Selick.

Jack Skellington, king of Halloween Town, discovers Christmas Town, but his attempts to bring Christmas to his home causes confusion.

To get into the Midway, you must purchase your tickets ahead of time. Adults are $9.50 and kids ages 3-11 are $4.

Don't forget you'll also need to purchase a food permit from the Midway as well, running you $10 but this lets you bring in as much food and drink as you'd like.

Have you been to the drive-in this year? What's your favorite drive-in in the area?
