11 Halloween movies for families to watch

There are not many Halloween movies we will watch. Many movies are aimed at scaring or at least creeping people out. I don’t want to scare my children. I don’t want a creepy Halloween, I want a happy, clean, wholesome Halloween.

We don’t watch a lot of Halloween movies, but it can be nice here or there through the month of October, especially if you do any sort of Halloween party with friends or family and want some movie ideas.

Halloween Movie List for Preteens and Teens

Now for some fun ones for the older crowd. I will caveat and say from this list, only one or two of my children have seen some of the movies on this list. Use judgement when deciding when your child is ready for something more intense or if you think he/she needs to. So just because a movie is on this list doesn’t make it a good idea for every ten year old out there. Consider the movie and decide if your individual child can watch it.

Harry Potter

Ghostbusters

Addams Family

Beetlejuice

Young Frankenstein

I would love to hear if there are any other movies on your Halloween movie list. Let me know in the comments.
