List of movies where something out of the ordinary (generally magical or paranormal) happens to groups of kids, teenagers and even some adults...Alphabetical order!
Teen Wolf Dir. by Rod Daniel (1985), starring Michael J. Fox, Doug Savant, James Hampton
High school's getting hairy!!! Haha. Sorry. Seriously though, how many werewolf comedies are there? Okay, how many GOOD ones? There ya go.
I Am Number Four Dir. by D. J. Caruso (2011), starring Dianna Agron, Teresa Palmer, Alex Pettyfer
Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief Dir. by Chris Columbus (2010), starring Uma Thurman, Pierce Brosnan, Rosario Dawson
Harry Potter franchise
I should think this entire series fits neatly into this category....witches, wizards. goblins, dragons, basilisks, etc...
Beastly Dir. by Daniel Barnz (2011), starring Vanessa Hudgens, Neil Patrick Harris, Mary-Kate Olsen
Sky High Dir. by Mike Mitchell (2005), starring Kurt Russell, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Lynda Carter
Kids who have parents with superpowers apparently go to THIS high school! A whole lot of fun!! Get ready for some major camp, and a lot of GREAT characters!
How to Train Your Dragon Dir. by Dean DeBlois, Chris Sanders (2010), starring Gerard Butler, Kristen Wiig, David Tennant
Ella Enchanted Dir. by Tommy O'Haver (2004), starring Anne Hathaway, Heidi Klum, Vivica A. Fox
Very 'Cinderella' meets 'Enchanted'. Very, very girly. I enjoyed it. :)
Matilda Dir. by Danny DeVito (1996), starring Danny DeVito, Mara Wilson, Paul Reubens
I also never read Roald Dahl's Matilda. This is really a fantastic movie! Definitely fits more into the 'fantasy' genre....beautiful scenes; very colorful! And, wow! What a cast!
The Chronicles of Narnia Franchise
It's a supernatural movie about some kids growing up. I preferred the BBC version, but this one was good in a more modern-type of way.
The Covenant Dir. by Renny Harlin (2006), starring Chace Crawford, Jessica Lucas, Taylor Kitsch
Alice in Wonderland Dir. by Tim Burton (2010), starring Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter
Eclipse Dir. by David Slade (2010), starring Kristen Stewart, Ashley Greene, Anna Kendrick
Jumanji Dir. by Joe Johnston (1995), starring Kirsten Dunst, Robin Williams, Patricia Clarkson
This movie is particularly fun. Who doesn't actually want to be in a board game? Seriously.
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Dir. by Tim Burton (2005), starring Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Christopher Lee
Being one of the millions of Johnny fanatics, I ate this up. Don't get me wrong, the other one is still a classic, but this one was closer to the book (yeah, I'm one of THOSE people).
Aquamarine Dir. by Elizabeth Allen Rosenbaum (2006), starring Emma Roberts, JoJo, Sara Paxton
Red Riding Hood Dir. by Catherine Hardwicke (2011), starring Amanda Seyfried, Gary Oldman, Julie Christie

Stardust Dir. by Matthew Vaughn (2007), starring Michelle Pfeiffer, Robert De Niro, Claire Danes
Nanny McPhee Dir. by Kirk Jones (2005), starring Emma Thompson, Angela Lansbury, Colin Firth
Yes, you're totally right. It's like 'Mary Poppins' meets Tim Burton. Wickedly fun!
Sabrina the Teenage Witch Dir. by Tibor Takács (1996), starring Ryan Reynolds, Melissa Joan Hart, Laura Harris
Casper Dir. by Brad Silberling, Phil Nibbelink (1995), starring Christina Ricci, Bill Pullman, Cathy Moriarty
Say what you will. This movie was AWESOME.
The Wizard of Oz Dir. by Mervyn LeRoy, Norman Taurog, King Vidor (1939), starring Judy Garland, Margaret Hamilton, Frank Morgan
A house falls on a witch and then we battle evil flying monkeys, tell me that's not supernatural.
