If you want to watch something Halloween-y but you, like me, don’t like horror, this is the list for you. Here are ten movies and tv-series I have enjoyed that are not horror, but are perfect to watch this time of the year.
My absolute favourite is Coraline. This movie follows an amazing story, but is also beautifully made. It’s a children’s movie, but it gets creepier the older you get, because you realize how messed up the story actually is.
The Nightmare Before Christmas
There’s a never-ending “debate” whether TNBC is to be watched with Halloween or Christmas. But why not both, haha.
I always want to watch the Harry Potter movies this time of the year. And magic is perfect for Halloween. Also: Umbridge is the scariest character ever.
Another stop motion movie. Frankenweenie is a cute story in Halloween style.
The witches in this movie are definitely a lot uglier and scarier than those is Harry Potter. The witches kind of creeped me out as a kid, now it’s a great movie to watch with Halloween.
The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina recently appeared on Netflix and I’ve already seen all of the episodes. I’ve heard lots of people say they thought this series is creepy, but I don’t agree with them. It’s more gross than scary, but most of all fun to watch.
This movie can best be described as Romeo and Juliet, but then with zombies and funny. Yeah… It’s definitely not the best movie ever, but I did enjoy watching it.
This tv-series is one of my favourites. The devil decides to live in Los Angeles and solves crime with the police. Oh, and it’s pretty funny.
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
This one is a classic, in my opinion. I’ve always thought this movie was low key creepy.
Okay, many people will say that Stranger Things is horror. But this series definitely did not scare me. Most of the “scary parts” are just suspense. I would call this fantasy thriller, instead of horror. I wouldn’t have watched this series if my friends didn’t convince me it wasn’t scary. I was so glad I listened to them, because this series is one of the best ever.
Let me know what your favourite thing to watch around Halloween is!
