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!
Our family friendly movies (Please check the age ratings for each movie)
Monster Family 1&2
Hocus Pocus 1 & 2
The Addams Family
Book of Life
Hotel Transylvania franchise
Monsters Vs Aliens
Nightmare before Christmas
Curse of the Were Rabbit
The Little Vampire
Ghostbusters Franchise (Afterlife is probably the best one for families)
Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown
For those who like scary movies.........(I would say suitable from 15 if they can handle it. If not please stick with the age ratings)
Shaun of the dead
The sixth sense
Halloween franchise (New movie released October 2021)
The Evil Dead
The Wrong Turn
Nightmare on Elm Street
Texas Chainsaw Massacre
Child of the corn
John Carpenter's Vampires
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!
