It’s Halloween! While many people probably hit the theaters over the weekend to watch the newest Paranormal Activity, I stayed home and caught up on one of my favorite Halloween movies — Beetlejuice. That’s right, Beetlejuice. I’m not afraid to say it again either: Beetlejuice!
See, I’m one of those people that can’t watch scary movies that are actually scary. I can’t go to sleep, I have nightmares, I must have all the lights on in the house at night…for a few nights in a row. I can only handle a very mediocre-bordering-low level of scariness.
I know there are other people out there like me, and I’m here to help.
Here are a few of my favorite movies that are perfect Halloween picks for the easily frightened (but who can handle medium-level scariness).
Interview With the Vampire
Not that scary, especially since it’s an earlier Brad Pitt flick and he looks rather handsome as a vampire.
Kind of a must-watch for anybody. The good thing is that it’s in black and white, so not that scary.
Say what you will, but I actually liked this movie.
Yes he may have scissors as hands and look a little out of place, but poor Edward just wants to be normal.
This movie goes to show that being a witch is cool! The rap scene is still beyond anything I’ve ever experienced before.
The Sixth Sense
Beware, this movie is kind of scary. You just have to keep thinking of how funny it is when the little kid whispers “I see dead people.”
Of course I love the TV show better but the movie is pretty cute and not scary.
From what I know, there wasn’t a Munsters movie, but of course you can’t call out the Addams Family without giving the Munsters props, too.
Not scary at all. It stars Michael J. Fox and is more of a family friendly, 1980s comedy.
This is one of my favorite Alfred Hitchcock films. There are funny parts and it’s not too scary. It’s more suspenseful than anything.
