There are countless horror films for adults to choose from – or Ghostbusters to fall back on (the original version, of course!). Here, though, are some suggestions of Halloween films for the little ones, so they don’t miss out.
* Recent release Goosebumps is based on R.L. Stine’s children’s book series. It’s not overly graphic and will be fun for kids aged five and above.
* Hotel Transylvania and its sequel will get your kids giggling with their host of eccentric monsters (and, not forgetting, one loveable human) and their crazy antics.
* Take your kids on a spooky adventure with Scooby-Doo and friends as they solve mysteries and come across monsters, ghouls and more.
* Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas and Corpse Bride are animated movies that have appropriately eerie themes, along with song and dance. Great for kids aged seven and up.
* Monsters, Inc. is charming, funny and exciting all in one. The two main stars are monsters, but not the really scary kind, so it’s perfect for little kids. Anyone over the age of four is sure to love this one.
* Casper offers the perfect mix of Halloween and kid-friendliness. Casper the Friendly Ghost and Kat, a normal teenage girl, quickly become friends and go on adventures together.
* Pooh’s Heffalump Halloween Movie is suitable for all ages; after all, honeyloving Pooh would never scare anyone!
* Hocus Pocus is perfect for pre-teens. It features three witch sisters on the path of revenge.
