21 Halloween Movies That Aren't Scary At All

It's October, which means it's time to watch one type of movie and one type only: Scary movies. But what if you don't like scary movies? There are a number of people out there who don't like to be jumped while watching a movie, prefer to sleep through the night, and just generally are not fans of horror films. Thankfully, these people have options as well. There are plenty of Halloween movies that aren't scary at all, meaning those who aren't big on slasher films can still get into the spirit of the year's spookiest season.

So many non-scary movies out there are either about Halloween, are associated with Halloween, or feature ghosts, witches, and goblins. Granted, some of these flicks owe their non-scariness to the fact that they are kids movies, but who doesn't want to watch something they loved as a kid on Halloween? But just in case you're looking for something a little more adult for your Halloween celebration, you'll find plenty to love in that department as well. So take a look at these 21 Halloween movies that aren't scary at all, and you'll have no trouble falling asleep on October 31.
