Have you got the essentials ready for your Halloween Party? Is the food going to be creepy and delicious? But, what are you going to be doing at your extra-ordinary Halloween Party? Maybe you will be just sitting at home with a few friends or family members as you hand out candy to the trick-or-treaters. Watching something creepy together is often a fun way to end the night.
Of course, if you have young ones at home, you don't want to get too scary. For Friday Faves this week, we did a poll of some of our favorite movie aficionado friends, added a few of our own, and came up with a great list of movies for Halloween that has choices for everyone. (All of them are pretty family friendly, depending on the ages of your family members!) The nice thing is that on Amazon you can often rent them or purchase them!
What are your favorite Halloween Movies? (No worse than PG13!)
Great Movies for the Youngest of Kids
All of the age suggestions here are my opinion. You know your own children best, so use your best judgement.
Awesome Movies for Mid-grades and Up:
Movies for More Discriminating Tastes
Ha Ha! I didn't want to say Adult movies or Mature Audiences because those can have bad connotations. But these are movies that younger kids may not get. Or, they may, you be the judge!
Old Classic Movies
Sometimes older movies, (like Nosferatu) can be super scary or seem funny when we watch them today. Some were done so well, they are timeless. Here are a few you might like to try if you haven't seen them.
When you start looking around for something to watch, you are going to see so many more films that you may have forgotten all about! I hope these will give you a good start on picking something great to watch on your Halloween! Whether you don't like to be scared at all or if you love to scream throughout the whole thing, let us know what you like, that stays within the PG13 range!

These are all great ideas! I just had a movie night a couple weekends ago and we watched Dorian Gray and Hocus Pocus. I need more Halloween films in my life though. I'd also recommend Sweeney Todd for older viewers!
