Jimmy Fallon has a lot of great segments, but Kid Theater is one of his best. If you're not familiar with the bit, Fallon invites elementary school children to write short scenes based on actual movies that kids would not care about (like Bridge of Spies and Magic Mike). Then, he gets the actors from the movies to actually act out those scenes and it's equal parts hilarious and adorable.

To kick off Halloween weekend, Fallon invited guests Anna Kendrick and John Lithgow to join him in a very Kid Theater-esque segment called Kids Campfire, in which the three adults took turns reading scary stories submitted by actual children.
