5 Halloween Movies for Scaredy Cats

Surprisingly, not everyone enjoys watching horror movies and being scared half to death, even at Halloween. If that description fits you, I suggest trying one of these not so scary movies:

  1. Hocus Pocus – Three witches resurrected by a group of teenagers, what could go wrong? The witches have 300 years to catch up on while trying to steal the souls of children. These witches aren’t going to let a few children stand between them and immortality.
  2. The Addams Family (1991) – They’re creepy and they’re kooky, mysterious and spooky. They’re all together ooky, the Addams family. In an effort to steal the family’s money, a loan shark’s son poses as a long-lost family member of the Addams family. I don’t want to give it all away, so you’re just going to have to go watch it if you want to find out how that goes.
  3. Monster House – As all good scary stories go, the cranky next door neighbor dies and merges with his house to become a rare breed of monster. Naturally, the neighborhood children ban together in an effort to stop the house monster. This animated movie is quiet enjoyable, I will note that younger children might find this movie scary so I wouldn’t suggest watching it with small children.
  4. Hotel Transylvania – Dracula is not only a father, but also the owner of a high-end monster resort. As any father would, Dracula is not happy when a human boy falls for his daughter. Now Dracula must prevent his daughter from falling in love with a human while also hiding the human from the other monsters.
  5. The Curse of the Were-Rabbit – This claymation follows the characters of the Wallace and Gromit films as they help protect a town from an attack of mutant rabbits on their annual vegetable contest. The movie won the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature so you know it’s good.
