17 Family-Friendly Halloween Movies

(PSSSST…..Vote For Your Favorite!)

Halloween is holiday known for its ties with the dark side. Skeletons, spider webs, spooky characters, and scare-tactics. As a parent, the components of Halloween can be concerning in monitoring what your child is exposed to. This is no reason to opt out of the Halloween fun! I have thrown together a list of movies that the whole family can enjoy-absent of worry.

#1 Hocus Pocus

A sisterhood of 3 witches keep their vow to return to Salem, MA, of which they were executed 300 years prior. Three kids from the town discover these witches and apply effort to halt their attempt at immortality. Despite the spooky description, this film is rated PG and has remained a Halloween favorite since it hit theaters in 1993.
