Halloween Kids Movies

curious george halloween

My kids love Halloween and they love when we have a movie night, so I decided to research some Halloween Kids Movies.  With my boys being so young, I had to make sure they weren’t too scary for them (sadly for my horror movie loving husband).  I realize not all my readers have little children and may be on the lookout for movies suited for all kids and ages.

Here are a list of some of the Halloween Kids Movies I thought would be good for children of all ages.

Curious George: A Halloween Boo Fest $6.49

Hang on to your hats and get ready for a spook-tacular good time, with Curious George — Autumn is here, bringing colorful leaves, hay rides, pumpkin patches, and the annual Boo Festival. After hearing about a legendary scarecrow who steals hats, the inquisitive monkey and his friends set out to find him. By the time he gets to the festival, George realizes that it’s not always easy to pick the perfect pumpkin, and that winning the prize for Best Costume may be as difficult as catching the mysterious Curious George: A Halloween Boo Fest — it’s a bewitching treat for the whole family!
