Here it is: our list of the best family movies and shows to watch on Netflix Canada this Halloween.
Halloween is a big deal in our house. We decorate, carve pumpkins, make spooky treats, Trick or Treat geared up in costumes (adults too!), and generally just have a really fun time.
We take Halloween seriously.
Well, as seriously as we can take a holiday that generally sees us dressed up in goofy outfits eating copious amounts of candy.
In the spirit of doing Halloween right, we sat down with the kiddos to make playlists of our favorite Halloween movies and shows on Netflix Canada.
You’ll find playlists for little kids (age 7 and under), age 8 to 10 (because our almost 8-year-old insisted she was “too big” to watch the little kid movies), pre-teen/tweens (because some of our 11-year-old’s picks were a little too scary for his 8 year old sister), teens (because, well, they’re a force of their own), and adults.
Now, full disclosure here, I’m well over my teens, but I’m probably too much of a wimp to watch most of the titles on the adults’ list. Well, except for The Walking Dead and Supernatural, mostly because those are two of the best TV shows around these days. So, you’ll probably be able to find me watching Hotel Transylvania while waiting for Trick or Treaters.
Here they are!
Best Family Movies and Shows to Watch on Netflix Canada this Halloween
Now, Netflix has a huge library with hundreds of spooky titles, so we’ve narrowed down this list to what we think are the best, age-appropriate TV shows and movies for Halloween.
We used Netflix’s ratings to help us decide where we were unsure on age categories, and our own discretion as well.
So enjoy, you’re bound to find a great Halloween title below.
