Do you love Halloween but hate the jump-scares, gore, and overall horror that others like to bring along with it? Then we’ve got you! There’s nothing better than spending Halloween night curled up in front of the TV, pumpkins glowing in the background. To help you bring this scene to life, we have compiled the three (+ one extra) best cosy Halloween films that everyone, from avid horror fans to those who avoid the genre like no tomorrow, will love.
Addams Family (1991) & Addams Family Values (1993)
Are you in for some spooky laughs? Do you want to be engulfed in a wonderfully gothic-style world to fuel your Halloween aesthetic dreams? The Addams Family films are calling your name! These films will have you laughing before the first trick-or-treater can knock at your door.
It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (1966)
Who doesn’t love Snoopy? Join Charlie Brown and his adorable, animated friends on a Halloween adventure that will fill your evening with good, wholesome fun.
Sleepy Hollow (1999)
Okay, so this one might be a little scarier than the others, but the charming (not to mention, star-studded) cast is enough to distract you into feeling pure joy for Sleepy Hollow (1999). Follow the protagonist Ichabod Crane to a small, secluded village called Sleepy Hollow, where a string of gruesome murders has left the inhabitants fearing for their lives. If you’re a fan of a murder mystery that’s light on the gore-y imagery, then Sleepy Hollow (1999) is the one for you.
