Having an annual Halloween Movie Night for your family is a great way to celebrate the season together and to create memories that will last for years to come.

Although it would seem that blood and gore should be the central theme of a Halloween movie, try some of these all-family favorite flicks instead.

“It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” – Not much needs to be said about this movie. It’s a family classic and will be for years and years to come. Purchase the DVD and keep it in your family’s special movie collection.

“Pooh’s Heffalump Halloween Movie” – Rated G – Perfect for the younger set, Winnie The Pooh and his engaging set of comrades will get even the youngest goblin in the mood for the big night.

“E.T.” – Rated PG – The whimsy and imagination of this timeless classic remind us that the impossible truly is possible when we believe. (Remember this can be emotional and a bit scary for the younger kiddos.)

“Monsters Inc.” – Rated G – This movie provides a funny and non-threatening take on the relationship between “monsters” and humans.

“Casper” – Rated PG – In this Steven Spielberg live action movie, human actors and a special effects “Casper” shows everyone’s favorite ghost in some funny and compromising moments.

“Bednobs & Broomsticks” – Rated G -This timeless Disney movie, has music and mayhem and lots to keep the little ones engaged.

“Scooby Doo’s Creepiest Capers” – Not Rated – This is a funny collection of Scooby’s spookiest cases. Along with his goofy group of cohorts, there are always a lot of giggles when Scooby Doo is on the screen.

“Wallace & Gromit, The Curse Of The Were Rabbit” – Rated G – The cool part about this movie is that these characters, even though they seen completely real, are made out of clay. Kids will love to see the inventions that Wallace comes up with and may even want to talk about what inventions that can create.

“Nightmare Before Christmas” – Rated PG – Although there is so much going on in this film that is great to bridge Halloween and Christmas, younger kids may find this one a tiny bit creepy. Stay close to them and the whole family can enjoy this one that has music and great-looking scenes.
