Also, I know that with parenting you sometimes need to plan a family movie night on the fly, so all of these can easily be streamed on Netflix. Have fun this Halloween and between the parties and parades make sure to spend some quality time with your kids!
1. The Nightmare Before Christmas
This is a classic and one of our family's favorite movies. The genius is that is can be watched anytime from Halloween to Christmas. Ok, let's be honest this movie is great anytime of year.
2. Alvin and the Chipmunks Meet the Wolfman
I know, I know, Alvin and the gang's voices are like fingernails on a chalkboard but the kids love this fun and it isn't too scary so it's great for younger kids as well.
3. The Addams Family
This movie was a bit creepy, but it's also pretty funny so both adults and kids should enjoy it. This is especially true if you haven't seen it since childhood. One thing though, let's pretend The Addams Family 2 never existed.
4. Dreamworks Spooky Stories
All three of these episodes star Shrek and friends. Some of the humor is geared more for adults but if you enjoyed all 18,000 Shrek movies you will like this one as well.
Let's be honest NOTHING is as frightening as your child wanting to watch an episode of Caillou. It's like the perfect scary show for parents. You can watch it, but prepare to cover your eyes (and ears) during most parts.
