Little figures dressed in ghoulish and macabre outfits run up and down the streets, looking for the next place where they can get their delicious treats. The moon is full and the houses are decorated with frightening masks and grotesque imagery with the hope to get a little adrenaline coursing through little trick-or-treaters veins. That’s right: Halloween is upon us; the one time of the year where horror is accepted by all people.
Families that go out will be treated to unique costumes and decorations. Young children get to experience trick-or-treating and adults get to relive their youth by watching their children go from house to house and get their treats. But after all the treats have been taken from the neighbors’ houses, it will be time to venture home and eat all of the spoils. But the night doesn’t have to end there. Trick-or-treating might be over, but more frights can be had by watching a scary movie.
While most horror movies are filled with blood and guts, it can be hard to find one that is suitable for a child to see and a parent to enjoy. But there are a few that will entertain the family while also giving children a little bit of the heebie-jeebies. Here are the top 5 movies for parents and adults.
