Family-friendly Halloween Favorites

If you're looking for a non-gory, family-friendly, Halloween movie, take a look at the following list of some of our favorites:

  • The Ghost and Mr. Chicken - A goofy Don Knott's film, a definite classic.
  • It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown! - Short and sweet, network classic.
  • The Corpse Bride - Not as good as Nightmare, but still fun.
  • The Nightmare Before Christmas - Not many Halloween musicals out there, and this is top-notch.
  • Ernest Scared Stupid - Haven't actually seen this one, but my kids seemed to enjoy it - watch at your own risk.
  • Garfield's Halloween - Another short and sweet network classic.
  • Arsenic and Old Lace (on Netflix) - A great family comedy, one of our favorites.
  • Scared Stiff - a fun Martin and Lewis comedy.
  • Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (on Netflix)- There are a number of A&C halloweeny movies, and this is the best (followed closely by Whodunnit)
  • To Kill a Mockingbird - Not really a Halloween movie, but the climax and ending scene happen on Halloween, plus it's a great movie to watch anytime.
