My family loves movies! One of our favorite things to do is have a family movie night where we get together in our living room and make pallets on the floor. I make cute baskets of favorite drinks and treats. Of course, we have popcorn we usually pop on the stovetop or in the microwave. Since it’s October, we will keep our tradition, but with some of our favorite Halloween movies.
One of my favorite Halloween movies is the classic, It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. Every year growing up, my family would watch this and now I do the same with my kids. I mean, who can’t relate to Linus and his commitment despite his friends not supporting him! My grandmother would make the best buttery popcorn and we would watch the movie in our pj’s.
There is no shortage of movie options this time of year. So, grab some popcorn and plan your next family movie night with one of these Halloween movies.

I love making our family movie night fun and relaxing. It takes minimal effort and we have lots of quality family time. For movie night baskets that won’t break your bank, try the local Dollar Tree.
I have found most of these movies on Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, Disney+, or Apple TV. We also have several DVDs I have been able to find in the discount bin at local stores. Also, be sure to check out your cable provider’s On-Demand feature as well!
Have a fun and spooky family Halloween movie night!
