Happy October everyone! This month, my husband and I decided to make a list of movies to watch together for Halloween-time. The only catch was that I’m not a huge fan of scary movies. And by “not a huge fan,” I mean I won’t watch them under any circumstances. For that reason, we compiled a list of some “Not-So-Scary” Halloween movies to enjoy with each other! Below are 15 movies from our list that I wanted to share in case there are any scaredy-cats like me out there.
Harry from Dumb & Dumber as a doctor trying save a town overrun with spiders…what could be better?
Charlie, Linus, Snoopy and the gang are together again to share some Halloween adventures in a timeless family classic! Corpse Bride
The unbeatable combination of Johnny Depp and Tim Burton means this stop-motion movie gets a little creepy, but it’s still full of fun. Dark Shadows
This remake shows Johnny Depp as an ancient vampire trying to restore his family and their estate to greatness. Young Frankenstein
“No, it’s pronounced ‘Fronkensteen.'” Ghostbusters (1 & 2)
These are some of the weirdest movies I’ve ever seen, and I mean that in the best way. Harry Potter (1-7)
Based on the greatest series ever written, all eight of these movies are perfect to watch any time of year.
Witches, Salem, Halloween night, a black cat…the perfect combination for some not-so-scary entertainment.
A comedy with Adam Sandler that turns typically spooky monsters into friendly characters? My kind of Halloween movie. The Nightmare Before Christmas
A stellar soundtrack accompanies this quirky love story about pursuing your dreams. Shaun of the Dead
This gory horror-comedy is full of British humor and a few moments that made me jump. Toy Story of Terror!
Our favorite toys are back on an adventure that, as always, leads to them getting in a bind and relying on each other.
This heart-warming classic was a favorite in my VHS collection growing up, and it still is. Warning: It’s a tearjerker.
I hope this gives you a few alternative movie options to consider during the “month of horror!” I’m thankful Louis is willing to sacrifice watching typically scary movies to watch these with me! Let me know if you have any other Not-So-Scary Halloween movies to add to our growing list!
