First Things First – Where Can You Find These Movies?
Since Blockbuster is no longer in existence (remember that place?!?)…some of our favorites from over the years are sometimes hard to find! We always try to check our subscriptions that we already have first like: Netflix, Disney+, Amazon Prime Movies, Hulu, our local library, etc.
If we can’t find it at any of those places, then we will start checking around at places like Redbox (for a minimum fee) or something like that.
And when all else fails, you can usually find them pretty inexpensively on Amazon to purchase (or rent!), if it’s a movie you LOVE and want to add to your collection!

Here are some more Halloween movies for kids that you can try on your next movie night!
Check the Reviews Before You View!
As always, be sure to take into consideration your child’s viewing abilities. When our kids were younger, some movies were a little intense for them.
One of our favorite online resources is called “Common Sense Media” and will give you reviews with families in mind. It’s a great place to read feedback from other families and usually is pretty spot on. So be sure to check out the movie there beforehand so you know what to expect!
Halloween is a great time to make fun memories with your family! Grab a pizza, pop some popcorn and bake some fun Halloween cookies while you have your next Halloween themed family movie night and you will be well on your way to making some special memories that last a lifetime!
