Halloween Movies to Watch for Kids/Teens and the Adults

We love watching movies together as a family, it is even better when something like Halloween comes along. Snuggles with thick warm blankets, hot chocolate and spooky decorations. The one thing that we tend to struggle with now that the boys are getting older, is finding the right movies for the age groups. We tend to stick with the age ratings for most things, although the older two boys do watch some of the scary movies that we watch.

There are quite a few movies you could watch for Halloween with the kids without giving them nightmares check out the lists below!

My kids are not quite ready to experience the more scary movies just yet.

and we do tend to stick to age ratings as we know our kids best. Adam has watched a few of the more scarier movies now that he is 16 though.

What do you love to watch during October? I will be honest I'm not a huge fan of scary movies, I used to be when I was younger but not so much now. I prefer the family friendly list haha!
