Great Family Movies to Watch for the Halloween Season

October is finally here, and with All Hallow’s Eve around the corner, the time’s come to grab some popcorn and watch the best Halloween movies ever.

Here’s a list of some great Halloween films to watch with the family complete with a star rating next to each film.

All great lists include Classics. The beloved Beetlejuice (4.5 stars), is about a couple who die and haunt their own home. Beetlejuice has a bit more adult humor than some of the other classics, so keep an eye on that parents.

Next up we have Hocus Pocus (4.7 stars), a film about a group of kids who accidentally release a coven and who then have to fight three witches to make sure they don’t become immortal. Hocus Pocus is one of those older films that has that special charm absent in most current films.

Thirdly, The Addams Family (4.5 stars), based on the 1964 show, is hands down one of the best Halloween movies out there. It follows the long lost brother of Gomez Addams, Fester, as he tries to find his family.

For our next choice, the Halloweentown (4.7 stars) saga, which is about a family of witches and warlocks who go on different missions in each film. They go to Halloweentown, save Halloweentown, and help a student exchange between the mortal school and Halloweentown High.

Nextly, we have Twitches 1 (5 stars) and(5 stars).Both consist of twin witches and their fight against evil. With their combined powers, they have the strength to take down the Darkness. It’s one of Disney’s better Halloween movies.

A few other family friendly movies to enjoy this halloween season are Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit (4.7 stars); Goosebumps (4 stars); R.L. Stine’s Mostly Ghostly trilogy (4 stars); and The Haunting Hour (4 stars).

More still are Corpse Bride (4.7 stars); The Worst Witch (4.5 stars); It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (4.8 stars); The Little Vampire (4.5 stars); The Haunted Mansion (4 stars); Scooby-Doo 1 (4.5 stars) and 2 (4.3 stars); Casper (3.5 stars); and The Witches (4 stars).
