✨ A Not-So-Scary Halloween ✨

🕷️ An ongoing list of non-scary (read: family friendly and no gore) and semi-scary (read: less family-friendly and possibly a small amount of gore) horror, fantasy, and sci-fi films.

🕸️ Not all of the films listed here take place on or during Halloween and not all are horror, but all are acceptable for the season.

🕷️ Includes some shorts, volumes, and specials. Also includes what I consider to be some introductory horror for the older kids (ie. Jaws and Psycho).

🕸️ Please feel free to recommend films you feel should be on this list or to (kindly) debate the ones which you think should be removed.
