Some Scary Movies For You…And Some For the Kids…

One of the goals we have had this month is to watch something spooky every single day of the month.  I know I have only missed one day for my more grown-up scary movie watching.

For my son, who just this night made sure to remind me that we MUST watch a scary movie every night, we have watched more mild fare:

Hocus Pocus

The Addams Family

Addams Family Values

the recent Addams Family cartoon

Monster Island

Spookley The Square Pumpkin

The Dancing Pumpkin And The Ogre’s Ploy

Room On The Broom

Every sort of periodic episode for his favorite shows

Halloweentown-1, 2 and 3

Charlie Brown and the Great Pumpkin (more on Him later)

James And The Giant Peach

Frankenweenie (original live action and cartoon)

Thunder And The House Of Magic

The Babysitter’s Guide To Monster Hunting

Daphne And Velma

This list is incomplete – and doesn’t count the fact that our youngest will watch the same flick over and over.

I am just trying to give you some ideas of things to watch, if you want.  Nothing in the adult section I am about to give, is more than PG-13…that I know of at least.  There are so many more I want to watch…but as I only have so many hours in a day, I do what I can. Frequently, I will watch more than one movie a night.

I shall not offer opinions on the films – if you watch them, I’ll let you form your own opinion.

The Ash Lad In The Hall Of The Mountain King

Cloverfield Lane

Pay The Ghost

Abandoned Mine

The Cave

Phoenix Forgotten (based on true events)

Stonehurst Asylum

Midnight Man

Uncanny Annie

The Haunting Of Bly House

Our House

Stay Out Stay Alive

Man Vs

Wish Upon

The Eye

Ghost In The Graveyard

The Invitation

Dark Touch

A Haunting Of Dice Road-The Hell House (true investigation)


The Quiet Ones (based on true events)


Inner Ghosts

Red Handed

I my come back and add in more movies that we watch throughout the rest of the month.

Hopefully, this list will give you some ideas of something interesting to watch during this month.

Good luck.
