If you have kids, here are 13 movies that are totally not scary, but still capture the Halloween vibe.

Hocus Pocus

Yeah, they’re talking about rebooting this for TV, but why in the world would you do that? Nobody’s gonna make this scene any better.

Shaun of the Dead

Okay, so Shaun of the Dead is an acquired taste. There’s a lot of dry, British humor in it, and not to mention, there’s some bloody stuff in it. But honestly, if you were going to weigh your options between ShaunDead Alive, or The Walking Dead,  Shaun of the Dead is going to take the lead as the least scary. “You’ve got red on you.”

Nightmare Before Christmas

Is it a Halloween Movie? Is it a Christmas Movie?  The answer is… BOTH. It is the only movie in the history of time that can transcend October to December without breaking a sweat.
