Yes, I confess, I am a chicken. Let me rephrase that: I am a CHICKEN when it comes to scarey movies. I can’t stand to watch the movies with blood, guts, and gore going on. With that said, there are some movies that I think are fun to watch for a Halloween Movie Night.
Three unemployed parapsychology professors set up shop as a unique ghost removal service.
I love Wynona Ryder in any movie she is in. In Beetlejuice a couple of recently deceased ghosts contract the services of a “bio-exorcist” in order to remove the obnoxious new owners of their house. More info and watch trailer
3. Shaun of the Dead
I watch this movie every time it is on, not just at Halloween. Yes, it is about Zombies, but it is actually a comedy.In Shaun of the Dead, a man decides to turn his moribund life around by winning back his ex-girlfriend, reconciling his relationship with his mother, and dealing with an entire community that has returned from the dead to eat the living.

4. The Ghost and Mr. Chicken
The Ghost and Mr. Chicken from 1966 is still funny to me! Don Knots plays a reporter who is given the assignment of spending the night in a mansion that was the site of a murder suicide and is considered to be haunted. Knots is hilarious as usual! More infor and watch trailer
5. Young Frankenstein
Even though Young Frankenstein is last on this list, it is one of my all time favorite movies. The combination of Gene Wilder, Madeline Kahn, Cloris Leachman, and Marty Feldman equals a really good movie in which Dr. Frankenstein’s grandson, after years of living down the family reputation, inherits granddad’s castle and repeats the experiments.

What movies do you and your family watch every year at Halloween? Are they usually scarey, or do you prefer the non-scarey?
