No nightmares here!
Between the best Halloween candy, Halloween costumes for kids, and Halloween decorating, your little guys and ghouls have a lot to look forward to come Halloween. But we know that the holiday dedicated to thrills and chills can sometimes be too much for some youngsters to handle. If your family needs something more silly than scary this year, these kids Halloween movies on Netflix have you fully covered. This Halloween might find you replacing your traditional parties and trick-or-treating with some closer-to-home activities, and movies are the perfect excuse to cuddle up and eat some treats.
Each Halloween movie makes for kid-friendly streaming—minus the screaming. In fact, like other funny scary movies, most are more likely to elicit a giggle or two before bedtime. Satisfy tots with Halloween-inspired cartoons, such as Hotel Transylvania 3, Mickey Mouse’s House of Villains, and Room on the Broom (which paints witches in a sweet light). Older kids, on the other hand, will love movies that fall a bit higher on the scare spectrum, like The Spiderwick Chronicles or Mostly Ghostly from Goosebumps author R.L. Stine. You can never go wrong with the spook-tacular staples either—think Little Monsters from the ‘80s. Netflix itself even produced a slew of Halloween-inspired originals, fit for all ages and preferences. Grab the popcorn, turn on the Halloween string lights, and fire up Netflix, because these movies for kids are just what they want to watch on Halloween.
