These days, it can be difficult to find Halloween inspired movies that don’t involve murderous psychopaths or scary monsters under your bed. Keep your whole family happy and in the Halloween spirit with these fun and family-friendly Halloween films!
1. Hocus Pocus
This 1993 Disney classic has been a Halloween favorite for years! Your kids will love going on a journey with the main character, Max, who tries to take down the three wicked Sanderson sisters! This movie is full of laughs and fun for the entire family.
Take your family on a vacation to Halloweentown! Halloweentown follows the story of young Marnie, who is desperate to learn the secrets of her family. Follow Marnie as she learns all about her grandmother’s special powers and watch as she harnesses her newfound powers to help the people of Halloweentown.
Have you ever lived in a haunted house? When a young girl and her father, a paranormal expert, move into this old and creepy house, they discover three unwanted guests, and make one new and amazing friend.
4. It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!
Share the classic animation and fun of Peanuts with your family! Charlie Brown’s good friend, Linus, tries to prove to his friends that on Halloween night, the great pumpkin will appear. Do you believe in the great pumpkin?
5. Monster House
Everyone grew up with at least one scary house on their block! Three young kids spend their Halloween weekend trying to learn the secrets of the creepiest house on their street! Your kids will love the animation, while you will love the characters and each of their hilarious personalities.
