Best Halloween movies for kids (that are not too scary!)

By on

The Worst Witch

Halloween is all about ghosts, monsters and of course witches.  Jill Murphy created the classic children’s book, The Worst Witch, back in the 1970’s and a whole series of books followed.  The original book was subsequently turned into a movie in the mid 1980’s and remains one of the best Halloween themed movies suitable for kids.

The movie centres around Mildrid Hubble, The “worst witch” at the Academy for witches, and all her mischievousness including turning herself invisible and turning Ethel into a pig.  Mildrid, however, redeems herself by helping overcome a plot to take over the Academy by Miss Cackle’s evil twin Agatha.

At only 70 minutes this is a great length for the younger kids who may get bored or distracted with any longer and as a G rated movie it is suitable for all the family.
