5 Halloween Shows to Stream As a Family

Wednesday, October 14, 2015

It's almost Halloween which means all not only will you have to deal with the race to buy costumes, and candy fueled meltdowns, and that is just from other adults. That's not all, however, you also have to sift through the flood of Halloween themed TV shows and movies that will hit your television. Many of these will be extremely stupid, inappropriate, or way too scary. I'm here to filter out the tricks so you can watch the real treats with your family.

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!

Nightmare Before Christmas
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.

Alvin and the Chipmunks
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.

The Addams Family
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.

5. Caillou
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.

Disclosure: I am sharing about Netflix because I am part of the Netflix Stream Team. I was not compensated but I am provided Netflix service and equipment to watch their streaming service. All opinions are solely my own.

    After we made this video, my kids were begging to make another one.

  2. A chunk for the team is fit for the options for the suggestions. The mutual way for the Blue Team Certifications by all issues. The thing is held for the terms. Mode is fit for the approval of the joys for the right and vital paths or the natural elements.
