Halloween Movies That Won’t Scare the Pants Off Your Kids

1 SHARES

Spooky movies always seem like a good idea this time of year. First, you gather the family, then you pop the popcorn, turn out the lights and cue up the flick. Then you fast forward two or three hours when “someone” is too scared to sleep alone so you spend the night smashed up against the wall while your kid lies star-fish and snoring beside you.

Since everyone has a different tolerance for scary it can be difficult to know what’s appropriate for your kid until it’s too late. Some kids think Gremlins is awesome, and some (mine) make you turn it off after 20 minutes then don’t sleep for a week.

To avoid the latter, we’ve compiled a list of our favourite spooky movies that won’t scare the pants off your kids. They’re not all Halloween-specific but they do have an element of spooky magic that’s perfect for family movie night. Just don’t forget the ghoulish snacks, including our favourite sweet and salty Halloween popcorn.
