Halloween Movies That Aren’t Spooky

The Addams Family| The Addam’s family is a little kooky, but it is a very entertaining movie, to say the least.

Hocus Pocus| This is a very popular movie around Halloween, three witches come back from being locked up for centuries, and some kids have to save the day!

Beetlejuice| Two people who have passed on are in need of help and they call on Beetlejuice, the ghost of most to help save the day!

Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown| Nothing beats a good Charlie Brown movie and this doesn’t disappoint! Very similar to all the other Charlie Brown movies with a Fall theme to it!

Harry Potter| You could binge watch the whole Harry Potter series this Halloween season. Granted it isn’t fully Halloween, but it has that Halloween feel to it!

Twitches| Two twin girls who were separated at birth find out they have magical powers!

Halloweentown| This is another very popular movie around Halloween, grandkids return to Halloweentown with the Grandma for new adventures.

The Little Vampire| This is a fun movie where a little boy gets granted a wish to become human again!

Teen Witch| Louise realizes on her 16th birthday she has powers and learns her way through it with the help of an older witch.

Practical Magic| Two sisters overcome obstacles of their powers and love in this movie!

Ghostbusters| This is the new released Ghostbusters but you can also pick from the older ones as well! All of them are really good and the original happens to be one of my all time favorite movies.

Monster House| Animated film where these kids find that their neighbors home is really a monster!

Paranorman| Like the Sixth sense but in a more relaxed fun adventure kind of way, that isn’t scary.

Coraline| Coraline goes on an adventure when she realizes a secret world, what fun adventures are waiting for her?

Nightmare Before Christmas| This movie is extra popular around Halloween!

  1. These are great picks! Halloween spookiness is so much fun, but some kinds – and adults, for that matter – can’t handle too much hard core horror.

  2. I grew up watching The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown and it’s such a timeless classic! I don’t do scary movies so this is the perfect list for me.

  3. I have seen most of those and they’re great suggestions. I could eatch Harry Potter all year round (well, actually, I do LOL).

  4. These are some great movies. My family LOVES Beetlejuice–such a fabulous flick. We also watch Hocus Pocus and The Addams Family.

  5. Awesome list. I love Halloween movies but it can be a challenge to get my kids excited about them because they are so young and scare so easy. There are tons of movies on this list that would be appropriate for them! Thanks!
