Halloween Tips and Tricks

Not everyone enjoys horror movies, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t some fun movies to help you enjoy Halloween.

For non-horror fans, here are 12 movies that are totally not scary, but still capture the Halloween vibe.

Hocus Pocus

An absolute classic and must-watch every Halloween season.


Nightmare Before Christmas

Is it a Halloween Movie? Is it a Christmas Movie? The answer is… BOTH. It is the only movie in the history of time that can transcend October to December without breaking a sweat.



Vintage Christina Ricci and Bill Pullman. That’s all you need to know.



Coraline’s “Other Mother” (voiced by Teri Hatcher) is seriously creepy, but let’s be honest, if someone tried to sew buttons in your eyes, you’d be creeped out, too.


Corpse Bride

This one has some dark undertones with the whole “disgruntled boyfriend killed her” thing, but still, it ends well.



Frankenstein gets a twist, and boy, does it work out! Everyone has felt the loss at some point of a childhood pet, and this little boy took it into his own hands.



Two words: It’s showtime.


It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

It’s a classic! Maybe not as classic as the Christmas special, but nonetheless, classic!



ParaNorman is The Sixth Sense meets Doctor Doolittle in a sense, because Norman can talk to the dead.


The Simpson’s “Treehouse Of Horrors” – The Raven

While there are plenty of “Treehouse of Horrors” episodes of The Simpsons to highlight, the animated series’ take on Edgar Allen Poe‘s “The Raven” is both historically sharing a classic, not to mention some laughs in between.



Who you gonna call during this Halloween season? This classic.


Harry Potter Saga

How can you lose with something both kids and adults with enjoy.
