Seeing as Halloween is approaching, we thought now was the perfect time to revisit some of our favourite spooktacular movies from our yoof.
We’ve hunted down a whole host of chid stars who were in creepy films in the 90s, so we can take a look at what they’re up to now. We’ve had Casper himself, Max Dennison, Emily Binx and Thackery Binx from Hocus Pocus, Luke from The Witches, and Pugsley from 1991’s The Addams Family. And speaking of that creepy, kooky family, remember Pugsley’s sister Wednesday? Well here’s what she’s been up to since we last saw her as that pig-tailed weirdo in the sequel Addams Family Values in 1993 when she was 13 years old.

Okay, so admittedly half you of you are going to be like, "Duh – I obviously know what Wednesday from The Addams Family looks like now."
But, for the rest of you, here’s what the actress who played Wednesday – Christina Ricci – looks like now.
In 1995, Christina starred in another classic Halloween romp: Casper. Then as she made the jump from child-star to serious adult actress, she starred in Sleepy Hollow opposite Johnny Depp in 1999. What’s the deal? Is she just bananas for all things spooky, or summat?
One of her best-known roles was as Selby in 2003’s Monster. Christina played Aileen Wuornos’ girlfriend in the film based on the serial killer’s life.
More recently, Christina – now 40 – starred alongside John Cusack in psychological thriller Distorted and TV movie Escaping the Madhouse: The Nellie Bly Story.
According to IMDb, she's got a number of projects in the pipeline, including Showtime drama Yellowjackets which is about a team of talented high school soccer players who survive a plane crash. It's been described as a coming of age story/horror.
As far as her personal life goes, Christina recently filed for divorce from her husband of nearly seven years, cameraman James Heerdegen. They have a five-year-old son called Freddie.
