I hate scary movies. I’m a big old chicken shit and have absolutely no interest in being kept up all night wondering if someone’s creeping in the bushes. I get too little sleep to begin with, thank you very much. My husband happens to love a good scare, but he’s stuck trying to squeeze in episodes of American Horror Story while I get kids to bed or when I have to work at night.
But I also really don’t like to feel like I’m missing out—which is why when it gets to be Halloween time, I like to have a little arsenal of movies at the ready that won’t make me triple wrap my feet under the blankets and run into the girls’ room to check on them every time the cat moves.
I broke some of my favorites up into three categories…
Not-So Scary Halloween Movies: Oldies But Goodies
Not-So Scary Halloween Movies: Animated
Not-So Scary Halloween Movies: 90s Edition
