Family-friendly Halloween movies streamingWith Halloween rapidly approaching, many families (including mine) look to movies and TV to get in the spirit of the season. While Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu have plenty of blood-soaked screamers available for streaming for the horror fans, there’s also an abundance of family-friendly Halloween titles available. Please note that while these PG-13, PG, and G-rated Halloween movies lack the blood and nudity of stronger fare, some of them are still quite scary, so use your best judgment for what your kids can handle. For more information on any of these family-friendly Halloween movies available for streaming, a good reference site is IMBD.com.
