First, let me just start this out by saying that I am not a parent. That said, I have a ton of friends with kids nowadays and as the resident horror movie fanatic in most groups I hang around in, I am asked all the time – especially at this time of year – What are some good horror movies I can watch with my kids on Halloween?
Well, this will stand as the definitive list I can conjure.
But this list will not only function as a guide to which films you can share with your kids – or possibly the kids you are babysitting – but as a list of films, by age-range, that you can refer to year round if you find yourself wanting to enter your child into the realm of horror.
Plus, in researching this topic, which I already have become a minor expert on, I found that there are quite a few Top 10’s and whatnot on the subject, but there doesn’t seem to be a One-Stop-Shop as it were.
This list will function as that as well.
So gather up the kiddies, bookmark this page, and take notes. Here is the definitive guide to Kid’s Horror from all of your buddies here at Dread Central.

Despite the show’s title, the spooky stories are only 30 minutes each, and are designed to produce shivers, but not nightmares.

Night of the Living Dead
A disparate group of individuals takes refuge in an abandoned house when corpses begin to leave the graveyard in search of fresh human bodies to devour. The pragmatic Ben (Duane Jones) does his best to control the situation, but when the reanimated bodies surround the house, the other survivors begin to panic.

Set in 1799, “Sleepy Hollow” is based on Washington Irving’s classic tale “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.” Faithful to the dreamy custom-bound world that Irving paints in his story, the film mixes horror, fantasy and romance and features an extraordinary cast of characters that dabble in the supernatural.
