movies like nightbooks

Yesterday we reviewed the movie Nightbooks. The movie was shockingly great, so we had a thought, why not do a list of movies like Nightbooks.

So, as we mentioned in the review, the story of the movie is about Alex and Yasmin. The two kids got abducted by a witch and held prisoners in her house, each one of them got abducted in different circumstances. There is no way to break from the witch house, and the only way so Alex and Yasmin to stay alive is to tell a horror story to the witch every night.

However, taste in movies is subjective, and for that reason; as is the case for all the lists we did here in Filmiland. The movies will not be in any order! So, we just put together 10 movies like Nightbook for you.

These movies have in common the same atmosphere, characters…etc. enjoy!
