I’m not the biggest fan of scary movies, but there are still great Halloween movies that won’t have you covering your eyes. Since it falls on a Thursday this year, most of our big parties and plans are on the weekend, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still celebrate at home on the 31st. If you wan’t a low-key night at home with some Halloween movies, try some of these childhood classics:
- The Witches: I will admit, the movie was a bit scary when I used to watch it as a kid, but I could never resist watching it. I love this Roald Dahl story and the film adaptation, and with a 100% rating from Rotten Tomatoes, it’s clear I’m not the only one who likes The Witches.
- The Nightmare Before Christmas: Everything about this movie is exciting: the original story and characters, the stop-motion technique, the musical numbers, and the cross-generational appeal. Anyone at any age can appreciate The Nightmare Before Christmas.
- Hocus Pocus: I can’t count the number of times I’ve seen this movie (since it’s on TV every year around Halloween), but I never grow tired of it. Hocus Pocus is a part of my childhood, and I’m sure many of yours too, but we are never to old to watch this movie.
