SwellChel Does Halloween: Favorite Halloween Movies


My husband and I do NOT like horror/scary movies ... 
about the scariest we get are M. Night Shyamalan movies like "Sixth Sense" :)


We really like old, suspenseful movies though like
  Charade with Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn.


Our first Halloween married we started the tradition of watching 
another Audrey Hepburn movie,

It's not necessarily "Halloween-y" but it's a little scary and suspenseful.
We usually invite some friends or family over after the kids are asleep, turn off all the lights and 
get lost in the story!



As far as "kid" Halloween movies, my oldest is five, so we haven't shown them many "scary" movies ... but they loved these YouTube videos of "A Disney Halloween" (which was a tv special in the 80's, featuring Disney villains and clips from Disney movies).

Check out the YouTube video here and you will see it is split into 9 different videos.



We just rented "Spooky Buddies" from Redbox and the kids really liked that too.



Another fun DVD for younger kids is Nickelodeon's Happy Halloween
featuring Halloween episodes from Go Diego Go, Yo Gabba Gabba, Wonder Pets, etc. 
Let's just say the song from "Yo Gabba Gabba" got stuck in my head last Halloween ... "too much candy's gonna' make you sick, too much candy's gonna' make you SO sick" ... haha



As I was thinking about what I watched as a kid I remembered the movie called "The Worst Witch" (with Tim Curry in it) ... so random!  Did anyone else ever watch that?


Do you have any 
1) not TOO scary recommendations for adult Halloween movies, or 
2) not TOO scary recommendations for kid Halloween movies?

Somebody gave us a Backyardigans Halloween DVD. Kelsey likes that. I always watched Hocus Pocus growing up! We will have to rent the Spooky Buddies from Red Box!
