It’s spooky season which means horror movies are being played on TV every other night. But not everyone can handle scary movies. Here is a list of great Halloween classics without the fright.
A timeless classic for Halloween is The Addams Family. The family’s weird antics are fun and just spooky enough for the entire family to enjoy.
Another great family option is It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. The cartoon features iconic Charlie Brown characters navigating the holiday in their usual charming ways. If you don’t own the classic, don’t worry! The film is being aired twice on ABC during October.
A cult classic that’s just the right amount of spooky is Hocus Pocus. Better Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy star as witches who try to become immortal.
If you’re a rom-com lover there’s still a Halloween movie for you. Practical Magic stars Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman who play two witchy sisters on a quest for love.
Young Frankenstein is a classic Halloween movie from the 70s. It stars Gene Wilder, aka the original Willy Wonka, and puts a comedic twist on a classic horror movie.
Finally, you can’t have a Halloween movie marathon without The Rocky Horror Picture Show. The campy cult classic is often shown in theatres around this time of year so you could even see it on the big screen once again! It’s not quite the family-friendly film but those with older children it’s a must-see for spooky season.
It’s time to grab your popcorn, and maybe even some candy corn, and jump into one of these classics to celebrate Halloween.
