It only takes one holiday movie to set the tone for an entire season. Think about it: Doesn’t it feel like you head down memory lane every time you watch a winter classic like Frosty the Snowman? The same goes for Halloween, which boasts its own cult-classics. Of course, Halloween movies can range from cute and seasonal to crazy creepy, and if you’re watching with kids, you’re looking for a fun, spooky movie versus a horror film that will scare them to death. That’s why we rounded up the best Halloween movies for kids!

While some of these movies don’t take place on Halloween, they all keep in the spirit of the spookiest day of the year. Experience the magic of the holiday with these family-friendly Halloween movies that are perfect for little kids. Find them on Netflix or rent them on Amazon — your kindergarteners will love these funny, spooky films!
