With Halloween around the corner I though I would share with you my favourite Halloween themed movies suitable for the whole family.
I’ll be honest, I don’t like scary movies. I can’t watch any adult horrors, so don’t come to me if you want recommendations! It’s been about 10 years since I last watched a scary film. I watched Saw as a teenager and I’ve been put off since!
Family friendly Halloween movies however are totally fine 😉
A favourite in any household is Hocus Pocus. If you haven’t seen it then… well… have you been living under a rock?! 😉 Watch it immediately.
I absolutely loved this movie as a child. I remember reenacting the scenes with my friends at primary school! We would all argue over who got to be Sarah (‘the pretty one’) and I would always win 😉 I looked the most like her after all! Long blonde hair, blue eyes…
Next up we have another classic, and that’s Casper! I’s been years since I watched this movie, and to be honest, I can’t remember much about it! It’s definitely time to dust off the old dvd and watch it this Halloween with Lamb. I remember thinking Casper as a boy was super cute when I was little!
I think Christina Ricci was a fab child actor and she will be making an appearance later on in the list!
We watched Hotel Transylvania for the first time a couple of weeks ago and Lamb is obsessed! We all love it and have been watching it a couple of times a week! We also too Lamb to see Hotel Transylvania 2 at the cinema last week, and he didn’t take his eyes of the screen!
He’s really getting into halloween and learning the characters. At the moment his favourite is Frankenstein, who he calls “Frankenstone!”
I highly recommend buying this DVD and watching as a family this Halloween.
A movie I will never, ever get bored of is The Nightmare Before Christmas. A Halloween movie or a Christmas movie?! Who cares, I’ll watch it on both occasions!
Tim Burton is a genius and has made some of my favourite films and this has to be one of his most popular (in my opinion), I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love it!
I love The Addams Family! The cast is amazing and it’s such a good movie! I also love the sequel Addams Family Values. Christina Ricci Plays Wednesday so well, I think she is my fave character in the movie. He’s got a love for Frankenstein at the mo, so I reckon he’ll love Lurch!
I’ve just checked and it’s on Neflix! Yay! That’s tonights movie sorted.
So there’s my top 5 Halloween movies for families. There’s a few more I could add like Coraline, Frankenweenie, Corpse Bride and Monster House but I haven’t seen them! These are on my list to watch this year.
What are your favourite Halloween family movies? I’m sure I’ve probably missed some classics!
