This is the ultimate way to scare up some fun this Halloween! All movies are rated PG or under!
Below you’ll find 31 spooktacular family-friendly Halloween movies you can enjoy all month long. From classics to modern-day greats you’re sure to have a frightfully fun time.

Quick side note, since I’ve received a lot of feedback from parents, I wanted to mention a few things about this list.
This list is for kids, but you might notice I don’t specify an age group. Some movies might be great for a four-year-old, while others would be better for older kids.
That’s for you to decide.
Every movie on this list might not be something you would personally show your kids.
One parent might find a certain movie too scary for their child, while for another parent, that’s not the case. That’s perfectly fine.
All these movies are rated G or PG, but remember that some movies are older and the rating system has changed some.
It would be nearly impossible to make a kid movie list that every parent agrees on for every movie. My hope is that you at least find a handful of suitable Halloween movies to enjoy with your kids.
Okay, just wanted to throw that out there, back to the Halloween movies…
Get the popcorn and treats ready, and watch a different movie every night in October.
What a great way to spend some quality time with the family! Wishing you all a Happy Halloween!
