Top Films To Watch With The Kids This Halloween

October is here and Halloween is near. What a spooktacular time to enjoy and celebrate together. Whether you’re going all out or having a lowkey celebration I’ve got some great recommendations for you. If you don’t want to head out on Halloween night then grab the snacks, cosy up under a blanket and enjoy one or two of the movies below.

I’ve separated each of my choices into three different categories. We’ve got the little ones which of course, are the babies who love cartoons and colours. The next is the big kids which I would say is targetted for primary school age. Then last but not least we have a few for the even bigger kids, which would, of course, be the teens.


Plan ahead for next Spring/Summer and see if some of these fun activities excite you: Take A Trip To Aqua Park Cardiff This Summer

The Little Ones:

  • Hotel Transylvania
  • Super Monsters (Netflix Special)
  • Monster House
  • The Nightmare Before Christmas
  • ParaNorman
  • Monsters Vs Aliens

The Big Kids:

  • Labyrinth
  • The House With A Clock On It’s Wall
  • The Haunted Mansion
  • Caspar
  • Hocus Pocus
  • Scooby-Doo Monsters Unleashed.
  • The Little Vampire
  • Goosebumps

The Even Bigger Kids:

  • Beetlejuice
  • Scream
  • World War Z
  • Zombieland
  • Shaun of The Dead
  • Ghostbusters
  • Signs
  • The Scary Movies 1-5
  • Harry Potter

Whether you’re looking for family-friendly fun or something to make you jump out of your skin. In this list, you will find something that suits all your needs. Make sure to let me know if you decide to watch any of my recommendations in the comment section below. Happy Halloween!


Halloween will soon be over and I guess the next stage is Christmas. Why not plan ahead and book yourself a festive afternoon tea: Festive Afternoon tea At Wyevale Garden Centre

*Please bare in mind that the age guidelines I’ve given for my recommendations are nothing but a guess. These are what I’d personally allow my children to watch at these ages. However, it’s important to remember that you know your own child. I am not held responsible for any nightmares they may or may not have.

    Good selection! Although, I have to say that even at 22 I would gravitate towards the ‘little ones’ and ‘big kids’ sections!
