Happy October! When you need a break from planning your kids’ Halloween costumes, trick or treat locations, or your own Halloween party – grab some popcorn and settle in with some great Halloween movies.
#10 Curious George: A Halloween Boo Fest
Is your little monkey – eh I mean toddler curious about everything? I know my toddler is bursting with curiosity. Curious George’s A Halloween Boo Fest is a great way to get in the Halloween spirit with your little ones as George tries to solve the mystery of the hat-stealing scarecrow!
#9 Toy Story of Terror (TV-G)
If your kiddos (or you) can’t get enough of Toy Story, this movie is for you! Follow Woody as he tries to solve the mystery of his disappearing friends!
#8 The Addams Family (PG-13)
Nothing says Halloween quite like the Addams Family with all their eccentric charm.
#7 It’s the Great Pumpkin – Charlie Brown
Because who doesn’t love catching up with Charlie, Snoopy and the rest of the Charlie Brown crew for a great holiday movie. This movie has a classic touch of old-school charm while being relatable enough to be a great movie to watch with the whole family.
This spook-filled movie is excellent for older kids (8+), Coraline is an 11-year girl frustrated with her home, she stumbles into a parallel universe that appears to be an idealized version of home – or is it?
#5 Hotel Transylvania (PG)
A movie for all ages, watch as chaos ensues when an unexpected visitor shows up at Dracula’s high-end resort for monsters.

Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride is sure to entertain your pre-teens as a shy groom inadvertently marries a ghost.

Watch as an author’s imaginary monsters take over Madison, Delaware.
#2 Hocus Pocus (PG)
Follow a trio of 17th-century witches as they navigate their way through the modern world leaving a trail of mayhem in their wake! This movie is full of 90s nostalgia, I’m pretty sure you will end up enjoying it, perhaps a bit more than your kids.
#1 Matilda (PG)
At the top of the list is my one of my favorites, Matilda! Although it is not technically a Halloween movie, I still love watching Matilda discover her magical abilities.
