✨ 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 or on 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.

There are 258 comedy films in this list.
