Whether it is the spooky season or not, both adults and children enjoy watching "scary" movies all year long. Of course, some of the more family-friendly movies are not too scary but have more of a comedic and "cute" side to them.
Movies like The Nightmare Before Christmas, Monster House, and The Little Vampire are all movies that could be considered children's scary movies (that would hopefully not leave a child with nightmares).
Family-friendly movies to watch in the Fall have become so popular, that even Freeform (formally ABC Family) has the "31 Nights of Halloween" every year. This is where every night is filled with movies and episodes that all relate to Halloween and horror.
There are some fantastic movies made for families and children to enjoy during the Fall months, and some of the best ones actually take place in New England.
One of the most iconic family-friendly movies for your Halloween season is about witches coming to modern times, of course, I am talking about Hocus Pocus, which takes place and was filmed in Salem, MA.
There is a variety of movies that you can watch with your family (or just enjoy by yourself) any time of the year, but especially around the Halloween season. Family-friendly movies set in New England about witches, ghosts, and the afterlife, all await you as you get into the Halloween spirit.
Grab your popcorn and get ready to sit down on the couch to enjoy these family-friendly Halloween movies based in New England this spooky season.
