Halloween is such a fun family holiday. Children and adults will enjoy decorating the home, dressing up, trick or treating and attending other fun Halloween events. Enjoying a family movie is another great way to celebrate this holiday. Many Halloween selections are too scary for families with young children, but these selections make excellent choices to watch with the family on Halloween.

Monsters vs. Aliens

Susan is hit by a meteorite on her wedding day and it turns her into a giant. She is taken into custody by the government and locked away with other monsters. Susan was initially afraid, but over time develops friendships with the monsters. The monsters make a bargain for their freedom by agreeing to fight a giant robot alien. The monsters defeat the robot and they are set free. Susan is initially anxious to return to her old life, but finally discovers that being turned into a monster and finding her new friends was a good thing for her.


Ghosts are a big part of Halloween. Casper is a movie about a friendly ghost the whole family will enjoy watching. Carrigan inherits an old mansion from her father but is scared away by the ghosts in the house, so she hires an afterlife therapist to come.
