The Best Family-Friendly Halloween Movies on Netflix

The Witches (1990)

Before Anjelica Huston became Morticia Addams in the 1991 hit movie, 'The Addams Family,' she played another bewitching character named Eva Ernst in the similarly successful 1990 horror-comedy, 'The Witches.' The film tells the story of Luke Eveshim (played by Jasen Fisher) and his grandmother, Helga (played by Mai Zetterling), when they go on vacation in Norway and stumble upon the witches in the area. Luke and Helga go head-to-head with Ernst and her coven of children-hating witches as the latter plan to turn all the little ones into mice and cook them in their confections.

Shrek (2001)

The first-ever recipient of the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature Film, 'Shrek' was already a historic movie to begin with. But it's also among the funniest family-friendly flicks that are perfect for Halloween. Starring a grumpy green ogre as the protagonist, with a talkative donkey as his sidekick, the movie is one big hilarious spin on all your favorite fairytales. It's as if Dreamworks took all the fairytale tropes that Disney movies set forth and turn them all on their heads. This is the perfect description of how much of a game-changer 'Shrek' was in the world of cinema.

Monster House (2006)

Movies about haunted houses are practially a dime a dozen but there aren't as many about houses that are the actual monsters themselves. At least, not many are as famous as the 2006 computer-animated supernatural comedy, 'Monster House.' The film tells the story of D.J. Walters, a wimpy and easily scared young boy who is neighbors with a grumpy elderly old man, Horace Nebbercracker. After Nebbercracker dies, which D.J. feels responsible for, he notices that strange things start happening in his former house. And as he investigates further with his friends, Chowder and Jenny, he finds that the house truly has a monstrous side to it.

Hotel Transylvania (2012)

One of the most famous monsters in history, the vampire known as Dracula, has always been known as a dashing and debonair count who lures people into his castle and sucks their blood. But what if, instead of draining them of their blood, Count Dracula provides excellent service and scary good accommodations? Well, that's what the 2012 computer-animated monster comedy film, 'Hotel Transylvania,' is all about. In his infamous hometown of Transylvania, instead of wreaking havoc among the humans in sight, Dracula transforms his castle into a monsters-only hotel where other famous creatures like Frankenstein's monster, the Invisible Man, and a fat mummy are frequent guests.
