It's Halloween Weekend — Why Not Have a (Not So) Scary Movie Marathon?

Last night was Halloween and in our eyes it's the perfect excuse to have a scary movie marathon. But we know that horror films, especially the gore-filled variety, aren't everyone's cup of tea, which is why we're bringing out films that are a little on the safer side. Some are funny, some will bring out the kid in you, and some are iconic, so click through and see what suits your mood on this spooky date!

i thought shaun of the dead was pretty scary too. Beetlejuice I actually just rewatched a couple weeks ago and the claymation and effects are pretty cheasy now so it's not as scary :-) We're going as Jack and Sally from TNBC this halloween, can't wait!

I love horror movies, but I still adore this list-- nothing like a classic, feel-good Halloween movie :) (especially the old Sleepy Hollow, I still LOVE that movie!) Beetlejuice should replace Shaun of the Dead on the list. I could still see Shaun of the Dead freaking a few people out, even if it does include some comedy.

I love Practical Magic! I can't even count how many times I've seen it. I would have added The Corpse Bride as well since it's in the same vein as other Tim Burton classics

Great list! It's not necessarily for kids, but I think Zombieland would be a great addition, as well!

I love all "scary" movies but these are ones I can enjoy with my children. But where is elvira mistress of the dark? She is the queen of Halloween after all! :witch:

I agree, Beetlejuice should be here too! To me, it's entertaining and semi-scary.

funkygeorge--I'm going to have to disagree with you about Beetlejuice. That movie scared me (yes, I'm a wimp)!
