Here are five awesome Halloween movies that you can enjoy without getting scared out of your wits.

The Nightmare Before Christmas

Where To Watch:Disney+, Google Play, or Vudu

Fun Facts: Written by Tim Burton, voice actors in this film include Danny Elfman, Chris Sarandon, and Catherine O'Hara.

What To Expect: In this animated hybrid Halloween-Christmas movie, Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King of Halloween Town, discovers Christmas Town and creates confusion at home when he tries to import the holiday. This classic is a fun mix of festive and creepy.


Where to Watch: TNT, Google Play, or Vudu

Fun Facts: This one was a fun cast that includes Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone and Jesse Eisenberg (along with a cameo from Bill Murray).

What To Expect: This super underrated "zomcom" (if that's a real genre) is zombies and gore at their classiest. The unlikely group of a Twinkie-loving, gun-slinging tough guy, two sisters seeking an amusement park, and a quiet student looking for his family make their way together through a post-apocalyptic zombie version of the U.S.

It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

Where to Watch: Apple TV+ or on DVD

Fun Facts: After the original airing of this 1966 special, children from across the U.S. sent candy to Charlie Brown because they felt bad that he got a rock while trick-or-treating.

What To Expect: A classic Fall treat featuring the fun Peanuts bunch, this Halloween movie is about Charlie Brown going to a Halloween party and his buddy, Linus, awaiting the spooky Great Pumpkin to pay the gang a visit.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show

Where to Watch: Prime, Roku, Disney+, Google Play, or Vudu

Fun Facts: Nearly 50 years after the film's premiere, Rocky Horror Picture Show is the longest-running theatrical release in film history. And, costume designer Sue Blane claims that her designs for the film directly influenced punk rock fashion trends that followed, like colorfully-dyed hair and torn fishnet stockings.

What To Expect: If you're into eccentric and weird, maybe a bit outside of Hollywood's norm, this cult Halloween classic is a must-see. A testament and parody to kitsch horror and science fiction, this 1975 musical comedy horror is the perfect film for a sing-a-long with your friends on a big screen. But, if a screening isn't close to home, it's still worth watching in your living room.

The Addams Family

Where to Watch: Roku, Prime, Netflix, Google Play, or Vudu

Fun Facts: This classic comedy stars Anjelica Huston, Raul Julia, Christopher Lloyd and Christina Ricci. If you're excited for Netflix's Wednesday series, this is a great introduction to that world!

What To Expect: The quirky, bizarre, and eccentric Addams family are also creepy and mysterious, making this one a fun, spooky Halloween flick. They reconnect with who they believe is an estranged uncle, Gomez's brother Fester. But he's actually the accomplice to a con artist loan shark trying to steal the family's fortune.
