The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)
Jack Skellington, who is living in Halloween Town, gets inspiration from Christmas Town and decides to bring some Christmas spirit to his home. We are sure that your little one will love Tim Burton’s fun musical narration and animations. We couldn’t stop singing the soundtrack afterwards! Some of the characters might be a little scary for very small children, but should be suitable for older children
The Harry Potter Series
Maybe this Halloween could be the perfect time to introduce your little one to the British classic, Harry Potter. Although the 4th to 8th films received a PG-13 rating, other episodes would be suitable for your small kids as well.
Monsters, Inc. (2001)
A Halloween movie without monsters wouldn’t be worth it for sure! Especially one which is about monsters who are in business of scaring kids.
