It’s almost that time of year again, the time when the leaves fall and the air gets crisp and cool. When jack-o-lanterns decorate yards and children come begging for candy. That’s right, it’s almost Halloween. In the spirit of that, I’ve put together the ten most well-loved, and kid friendly, Halloween films. If you and your family want a Halloween focused movie night, these are the movies to choose.
10) Hocus Pocus
Three witches, an ancient curse, a back from the dead ex-boyfriend, and a couple of kids who are in way over their heads make this one of the most entertaining Halloween movies I’ve ever seen. It’s cute, it’s funny, the plot is thick and, of course, it’s Halloween-y. You can’t miss out on Hocus Pocus!
9) The Worst Witch
The Worst Witch is probably my favorite Halloween film ever made. This one has Tim Curry as the very loved headmaster of a school for witches and tells the story of one little witch who is terrible at everything. She can’t cast spells, she can’t ride her broomstick very well, she’s just bad at being bad. Sometimes, though, that’s just what you need to save the day.
