Last Friday over on Facebook I was saying that I was thinking about Halloween movies to watch with my kids…and after I posted that I kept thinking and thinking about good Halloween movies to watch with my family.
So tonight my husband and I were sitting around talking about the movies we watched growing up around Halloween time and the movies that our kids like now and I put together this list of some Halloween movies that I can watch with my family over the next few weeks.
And with 31 movies on our list there is one for every night in the month of October!!!
The list is a work in progress…but it’s what we’ve come up with so far…also, as you read this remember that movies should be selected so as to be appropriate for the age, maturity, etc, etc, of your viewers….
And with that disclaimer. Here is a list of the 31 Halloweenish movies that we put together for our family.
#1. It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown
#3. Monsters Inc.
#6. Bedknobs and Broomsticks
#9. Mickey’s House of Mouse Villain’s
#10. The Nightmare Before Christmas
#11. Men In Black
#12. Garfield’s Halloween Special
#13. Monster House
#14. The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad (It’s a Personal Favorite!!! Love….The story is told and sung by Bing Crosby!!!)

We may be missing some. But it’s a start.
In other Halloween related news we are going to try to have a “Black and White” themed Halloween here at our house this year. So the plan is to get old movies to watch with the family after trick or treating…like the original King Kong, Godzilla, The Invisible Man, or The Mummy…and then eat black and white foods….like nachos with mozzarella cheese and black beans and then have black cows for desert!
It sounds like fun to us…hopefully the kids will like it to!
