One of the best things about Halloween — after all of the candy, of course — is watching as many scary movies as your heart can take. But if you have children, The Exorcist and A Nightmare on Elm Street aren't exactly appropriate for viewing anymore. But that doesn't have to mean that you can't watch anything. If you want to have a scary movie night the entire family can enjoy, you need to know the best family Halloween movies on Netflix right now.
Once your kids have filled their bellies with all of the trick-or-treat loot they can handle, you're definitely going to want to do something to help them come down from their candy buzz. Watching a movie together is a great way to let everyone unwind, and have a few laughs in the process. Classic characters like Curious George, Alvin and the Chipmunks, and Shrek are featured in some of these Halloween-themed movies that even parents will love.
These family-friendly films are in keeping with the spirit of Halloween, but won't have you up all night responding to your kids' nightmares and claims of monsters lurking in the closet. So put that Netflix subscription to good use and round up the entire family to watch one (or all) of these Halloween movies.
