These dozen films fit the bill. Each one offers a seasonal tone without delving into the needless gore and nudity so often found this time of year. What’s more, they all offer inspiring moral messages for families to discuss and learn from. The reviews below are all from my book 250 Great Movies for Latter-day Families, now available in paperback and Kindle. Please be mindful of the disclaimers found in some of the reviews, as a few of these films may frighten certain age groups. If you like, you can follow the links to purchase or rent the titles.
I’ve seen the question pop up, time and time again, in my social media feeds: “What are some good Halloween movies that I can watch with my kids?” In a season whose cinematic offerings frequently skew towards the sadistically violent and oppressively occultic, what options are there for entertainment that sets the Halloween mood without going overboard?
