Who say’s Halloween has to be scary! We have put together 10 of the best Family Halloween movies that we have watched as a family over the years.
If you not so sure about heading out into the cold scary night on the 31st October, why not try our alternate Halloween Ideas which everyone in your home can enjoy. I won’t lie I am a bit of a scaredy cat when it comes to trick or treating, so most years I have either had my husband take the kids out or I have stayed in and had a great movie night. My youngest son is also frightened to death of the ghouls and ghosts walking around our neighborhood, but he obviously still wants the treats (I mean what kid wouldn’t). I must say some of these Halloween movies can also be used on the run up to the big night itself. As the nights draw in, what better way to spend an evening snuggled up behind a pillow watching these awesome Family Halloween movies.
