Our 20 Favorite Halloween Movies

Holiday movies. It seems that this is the only time of year we welcome the talents of teen and child actors in droves. At no other part of the year is one half of Hollywood's viled co-workers so welcomed. ("Never work with children or animals." W.C. Fields) The holiday season is a time where the family can go to the cinema together and enjoy rather wholesome delights at the cineplex. Halloween is the first of said holiday season and we take a look at twenty of our favorite films to watch under the Hunter's moon.

A specific caveat must be mentioned with this list. We're not fans of the horror genre. That being said, it eliminates what many people consider to be staples in the Halloween movie collection, like the film Halloween itself or any slasher/gore flick for that matter. We derive our list more from the former mention of family-friendly films. However, our list isn't all Disney-fied or happy go lucky. There are some films that skew the lines between horror, comedy and thriller. Enjoy!
