31 Halloween Movies that the Whole Family Will Enjoy

Are you looking for a good Halloween movie to watch with your family this October? It can be hard to find a Halloween movie that the whole family will enjoy. It’s either too scary for the youngest, too babyish for the big kids, or you’ve seen it a 1000 times!

Well, gather the family, pop the corn, and cozy up because I’m about to present 31 of the best Halloween movies!

In October, we celebrate the season with a weekly Halloween Movie Night. We pop the popcorn, bake refrigerated sugar cookies, or snack on candy and cozy around the tv. Sometimes, we just watch episodes or shorts and get on with our night. My kids range in age 4-11 so I’ve learned to pick something that (most of the time) everyone will enjoy. Here are our favorite Halloween movies:

Kim McNeely
Kim grew up in a small town in northeast Alabama. She majored in journalism in college at Faulkner University. There she met baseball-playing Florida boy named David who swept her off her feet and then married her. David went right into a coaching career and Kim lost her desire to write. In 2008, they started a family and Kim fell in love with motherhood. She has been a stay at home mom for almost 12 years devoting her time to raising three children. Her kids have grown up on baseball fields and in ball parks. They moved to Lithia a few years ago and enjoy exploring Tampa and checking out the local baseball teams. Kim likes being creative and crafty. She is a list-maker, scheduler, and planner. She loves planning play dates, parties, and budget-friendly family activities. When Kim isn't at a baseball game, she spends her days convincing her 11 year old, Emerson, to put down the cell phone; helping her 8 year old, Everly, with math homework; and entertaining her playful 5 year old and only son, Easton. If she finds some free time, she writes her blog, catches up on her favorite TV shows, scrolls social media, and folds massive piles of laundry. Her desire to write returned when she realized that her children were an endless source of inspiration. She also realized she knew more about baseball than the average mom and wants to share her knowledge with others. You can follow Kim's blog and Instagram as she documents The Baseball Life.
