21 Must See Family Friendly Halloween Movies


Some of the fondest memories as a kid were spent watching Halloween movies with my family while enjoying special treats and decorating the house with Halloween spirit. 

I watched a good majority of these movies as a kid, yet remember them as if I watched them yesterday.  Hope you can find some favorites that you'll love and create some traditions of your own.

If you want to make sure the content of the movies you show your family is appropriate, this website (Kids in Mind) covers all the details, including level of language and violence.
