Five Best Family Halloween Movies
1. Monster House (2006)
“Monster House” is our number one choice, however, it’s one of those animated movies not suitable for kids of all ages. The content caters to older kids, after all, it is a Robert Zemeckis and Steven Spielberg production. “Monster House” is no Pixar film. The movie follows three teens who battle the powers of a supernatural suburban house. This movie gave me some “Insidious” vibes; it was quite scary with enough thrills that kept me on the edge of my seat.
2. Paranorman (2012)
3. The Haunted Mansion (2003)
In this Disney movie Jim (Eddie Murphy), a workaholic realtor, encourages his wife, also a realtor, to accept the proposition to sell the mansion. The family plans a vacation close to the mansion where they stop by, for what they thought would have been a brief visit, never to leave, just kidding. The family is stranded at the mansion and soon learns it’s haunted. The plot is predictable, but entertaining with a series of special effects. In this movie Jim realizes his family’s much more important than his success.
4. Hotel Transylvania (2012)
5. Pooh’s Heffalump Halloween Movie (2005)
And I certainly haven’t forgotten our youngest trick or treaters; there’s Disney’s “Pooh’s Heffalump Halloween Movie.” It’s Lumpy’s first Halloween, and our usual suspect, Pooh, ate all the candy. This event spurs Roo and Lumpy to pursue an adventure to capture the Gobloon to wish for more candy. Take this journey with them as they follow Tigger’s map past the Creepy Cave, down the Slimy Slide and into the Tree of Terror. It’s a movie about friendship and courage.
