1. Hocus Pocus (1993)

Hocus Pocus (1993)

Why it’s a great Halloween movie: 

Scary scenes: The opening scene features the three Sanderson sisters sucking the soul out of a little girl and killing her in the process.

2. It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (1966)

It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (1966)
 

Why it’s a great Halloween movie: This classic TV special feels like a rite of passage for anyone who grew up watching it and the perfect movie to share with your kids.

Scary scenes: None.
 

3. The Witches (1990)
The Witches (1990)

Why it’s a great Halloween movie: Witches and Halloween go hand in hand.

Scary scenes: The scene where the Grand High Witch (played devilishly by Anjelica Huston) removes her disguise for the first time is nightmare-inducing — so this movie might be better for kids 7 and older.

4. Halloweentown (1998)

Why it’s a great Halloween movie: It's kind of like a disney low budget version of Harry Potter. Girl finds out she's a witch and figures out there is world filled with werewolves, ghosts, spells, and fun!

Scary scenes: None


5. Ernest Scared Stupid (1991)
Ernest Scared Stupid (1991)
 

Why it’s a great Halloween movie: Ernest accidentally unleashes a band of trolls — that turn children into wooden dolls — upon a small town on Halloween and must work to set things right.

Scary scenes: None. But the trolls are a bit creepy looking.

6. The Addams Family (1991)

The Addams Family (1991)
 

Why it’s a great Halloween movie: The movie is a wonderfully macabre adaptation of the classic 1960s TV show. Personally we think Adams Family Values is a bit better but the first one is more in line with Halloween. 

Scary scenes: None.


7. Casper (1995)

Casper (1995)
 

Why it’s a great Halloween movie: It’s a sweet story of young girl who, along with her ghost-chasing dad, moves into a creepy mansion where she befriends Casper, the friendly ghost of 12-year-old boy.

Scary scenes: None. 

8. The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)

The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)

Why it’s a great Halloween movie: Tim Burton’s now-classic film is one of the rare movies that works well as both a Halloween and a Christmas movie.

Scary scenes: The maggot-filled villain, Oogie Boogie, might be a little intense for very young children.


9. Monster House 

(2006)



Monster House (2006)

Why it’s a great Halloween movie: Overall this is a fun movie that does not shy away from being just the right amount of scary for kids.

10. Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit(2005)

Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit (2005)
