by - October 08, 2022

Fall is here! Fall, and by extension Halloween, movies are some of the best, and you can bet your TV will be filled with spooky and non-scary movies for the next month or so.

Every year, I like to round up some non-scary options to get you in the spirit of the season (I am not a scary movie type of gal). So here are 13 Non-Scary Movies to Watch in October. All of these are kid-friendly and approved by my 6 year old.

Scoob! - Scooby and the gang are in a race against time to stop a plot to unleash the ghost dog, Cerberus, upon the world. This new Scooby Doo movie gives us some back-story for the gang and how they got into mystery solving in the first place.

Hocus Pocus - Undoubtedly my most favorite Halloween movie ever. The Sanderson sisters are brought back on Halloween when Max lights the black flame candle. Now it's up to Max, his little sister Dani, his girlfriend Alison, and Binx the cat to send them back.

It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown - In this classic TV movie, Charlie Brown and the gang celebrate Halloween while Linus waits for the Great Pumpkin's arrival.

Casper - Dr. Harvey and his daughter, Kat, move into a crumbling mansion that's haunted by four ghosts. Dr. Harvey has been hired to get rid of the ghosts for the new owner, who believes a treasure is hidden somewhere in the house.

The Addams Family (2019) - In this animated flick, the Addams move to the suburbs where Wednesday befriends the daughter of a local reality show host.

Halloweentown - In this Disney Channel original movie, Marnie and her siblings follow their grandmother home to Halloweentown. Marnie learns she, too, has magic and must help her grandmother save the town from the evil Kalabar.

Gnome Alone - When Chloe discovers that the garden gnomes in her new house are alive, she has to decide what's more important: being accepted by the popular girls at school or saving the world from the Troggs.

Coco - Miguel wants to be a musician, but his family has banned all music. So he enters the World of the Dead to find his great-great grandfather, a legendary singer.

Goosebumps (2015) - Zach's new neighbor is none other than the author of the Goosebumps series, R.L. Stine. Zach teams up with Stine's daughter, Hannah, after the author's imaginary monsters are set free on the town.

E.T. the Extra Terrestrial - When Elliott finds an alien, he brings him home to keep.

Hotel Transylvania - Dracula runs a high-end resort for monsters to escape the human world. When a human boy stumbles into his lobby and falls for his daughter, Dracula goes into over-protective mode.

Monsters Inc. - Monsters use the screams of children to power their city, but when one of those children manages to get into their world, Mike and Sully discover all may not be as it seems.
