The Ultimate List of Halloween Movies [80+ from Scary to Not-So-Scary!], halloween movies to watch, #halloweenmovies, spooky movies, not so scary halloween movies, halloween movies for kids, #halloween, #halloweenideas, #scaryhalloweenmovies

Nervous you're going to binge Stranger Things on Friday and still have four days left until Halloween? No worries! Here's the ultimate list of movies to get you in the spooky spirit for Halloween! Everything from not-so-scary to hauntingly scary films across the decades! This list of Halloween flicks has been growing over the last few years and now includes your suggestions as well! I've starred my personal favorites.

I do want to note, the no-so-scary halloween movie list does not mean all of the movies are appropriate for children! The no-so-scary Halloween movie list is exactly that: not-so-scary. I can't believe I have to say this, but based on some of the messages I received: please use your best judgment, watch trailers, and make a choice appropriate to you or your child's level of scare!

I've done my best to include where to stream these Halloween films too, but over the years the streaming networks like Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime have kept switching things up on me.
