I absolutely love Halloween, it´s one of my favorite days of the year. How could you not enjoy candy, dressing up, pumpkins and fall? But let me tell you, there´s one thing I don´t enjoy a 100% which is horror films. So I created this list hoping that I´m not the only coward that loves Halloween but is to scare to watch movies like "The conjuring" or "Annabelle"

Halloweentown.

This is a Disney Channel Original Movie that most of us have seen at least once during this time of the year. But in case that you haven´t let me tell of what you´re missing. Halloweentown is about a girl called Marnie which, without knowing, comes from a family of witches of Halloweentown. When Marnie´s grandma visits her family after a while, she argues with Marnie´s mother about whether they should tell Marnie about her powers or not, if they don´t after her 13th birthday, Marnie would loose them forever. Marnie finds out about the magic that she has and takes a trip to Halloweentown, where weird things are happening and need to be solved. There are 4 movies of Halloweentown, but my personal fave is "Return to Halloweentown" which is the last one.

Casper.

The movie is about a friendly ghost, Casper, who falls in love with a teenage girl, Kat, who stars living in the hunted house with her father. Their relationship isn´t easy since Casper´s uncles (also ghosts) try to scare them away. Kat doesn´t have many friends because she´s constantly traveling with her father around the country, but when she arrives to Maine she becomes popular since she lives in the popular house. Kat notices that Casper doesn´t remember his life and death, so she´ll help him to bring his memories back.

Hocus Pocus.

1693, Thackery Binx is transform into an inmortal cat by three witches in the Halloween night, after these try to take away Thackery´s sister´s youth. The witches leave a spell before being killed, they promise to come back when a virgin lights up the haunted candle on the Halloween night. 300 years later, a teenage boy, Max, his friend, Allison, and Max´s little sister, Dani, light it up bringing the three witches back to life. Max, Allison, Dani and Binx will try to get rid of the witches before they take away the youth of every kid in town.

Matilda.

Matilda Wormwood is a lovely girl with a not so lovely family. Her father, who sells stolen car parts, her annoying mother, and her older brother, who couldn´t care less about her, made Matilda really independent since they left her home alone all day. This, and her passion for reading, made her an incredibly smart kid, who eventually starts developing the skill to move things around just using her mind. She´s sent to school where she makes her first friends, including Miss Honey, her teacher. But not everything is so easy, the principal of the school is the reason why I put this movie in the list. This is not exactly a Halloween or horror movie, but Miss Trunchbull (the principal) is quite scary.

Hotel Transylvania.

Dracula, who operates a high-end resort away from the human world, goes into overprotective mode when a mortal boy discovers the resort and falls for the count's teen-aged daughter. I think it has a beautiful message that we can all learn from this movie. There is also a second part in case that you wanna go and check it out.

Miss Peregrine´s Home for peculiar children.

For years, Abraham Portman has told stories to his grandson Jacob about his amazing childhood as a Jew during World War II, battling monsters trying to eat him, and living at a secret home for children in Wales. According to Abe, the home's children and their headmistress Miss Alma Peregrine possess paranormal abilities and are known as "Peculiars". Following advice from his psychiatrist and by a secret letter from Miss Peregrine to Abe, Jake travels to Cairnholm with his father Frank to investigate the children's home, whereupon he learns that it was destroyed during a Luftwaffe raid. However upon visiting the ruined house, he finds the children there alive and well. They take him through a portal in a cave and he emerges in the year 1943 when the house was still intact and Miss Peregrine greets him shows him around. This isn´t a Halloween movie either, but still, it gives me Halloween vibes.

The Addams Family.

The Addams are a gothic family and they are about to loose their money because of their liar lawyer. They come up with the idea of making Gordon pretend that he is uncle Fester to get their money back, but this gets harder and harder for this peculiar family. It´s a comedy/horror movie that everyone can enjoy, specially if you watch it with your family, I bet you´ll relate at least once with this gothic family.

Twitches.

Have you ever seen The Parent Trap? Well Twitches is quite similar, twins that were separated when they were just babies, but in this case, they are witches. 21 years later they meet each other at a store. They get to see that even though they look the same, they are completely different. After being attack by some mystery dark thing, they discover their magic. During the movie Alex and Camryn travel to their kingdom, Coventry, and meet their mom, fight the dark and learn their story. You´ll want to see more of this, so you should definitely watch the second part which is also amazing.

Suicide Squad.

I know this isn´t related to Halloween but I just can´t watch this movie without thinking of Halloween, so I´ll add it to the list and I hope I´m not the only one feeling the vibes of October 31st, and you can´t go wrong with a superheroes/villains movie. A secret government agency recruits some of the most dangerous super-villains to form a defensive task force. Their first mission: save the world from the apocalypse. My favorite part, Margot Robbie´s acting, she was born for the role of Harley Quinn, and next to Jared Leto and his also amazing performance, will give your Halloween night what it needed.

The nightmare before Christmas.

Halloween Town is a fantasy world filled with citizens such as deformed monsters, ghosts, ghouls, goblins, zombies, mummies, vampires, werewolves and witches. Jack Skellington, the "Pumpkin King" and leader of the town, leads them in organizing the annual Halloween celebrations. However, privately Jack has grown weary of the same routine year after year, and wants something new. To be honest, this movie was kinda scary for me when I was little, but don´t worry it´s not scary at all, I was just a little coward.

Frankenweenie

We´ve all had dog which we love and even consider our best friend, well Víctor Frankenstein wasn´t the exception. He didn´t have many friends, but he didn´t care as long as he had his dog, Sparky, with him. One day his loyal friend got ran over which made Victor very sad. Until one day he brought Sparky back to life and the adventure of having a death dog begins.

Corpse Bride.

Another Tim Burton movie to the list. The main character, Victor, is about to get married to Victoria, a beautiful woman, but while practicing his vows, Victor gets really nervous and catches on fire Victoria´s mom´s dress. He is not allowed to marry Victoria until he learns his vows properly, so he crosses a bridge practicing his vows without success. Finally, he recites his vows correctly, and places his ring of the eternal covenant on a root of the ground resembling a few fingers.
Suddenly the "root", which is actually a human hand, grabs him firmly on the arm and the floor emerges the corpse of a beautiful woman wrapped in a wedding dress. The corpse bride declares that the boy is her husband and this, after receiving the traditional kiss, faints. Victor awakens in a town full of dead, among them the corpse bride, with whom he had accidentally married. Confused and frightened, he demands to be told where he is. The corpses explain that he is in the Land of the Dead and tell a story of love and disappointment which explains the reasons for this "strange" marriage.

Mickey´s House of Villains.

I know this could be considered quite childish but I had to add it to the list, it´s a huge part of my childhood and maybe yours too, so if it is, go and watch it back, it´ll bring you back so many good memories. And if you already have your own kids, you should definitely show them this Mickey´s movie, they´ll love it.
After a series of cartoons, Jafar, along with Captain Hook, Cruella de Vil, Ursula, The Queen of Hearts, The Evil Queen Grimhilde, Maleficent, The Evil Step-Mother of Cinderella and her daughters Anastasia and Drizela, among others, take over the House and join in the process of tossing Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Pluto, Goofy, Winnie the Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, Cinderella, Bella, Aurora , Ariel, Snow White, among others, throw them into the street and change the name of the House of Mouse.
