Spooky Movies

The IslandFamilies household rather enjoys Halloween so if your family is the same, and you want to maximise every ounce it has to offer, then binge-watching some spooky films is a great way to spend some time together. Halloween falling on a Saturday this year makes trick-or-treating followed by a movie-night even more appealing.

Even the most ardent of film buffs isn’t going to get through all the ones below, but there are hopefully enough options for the whole family to enjoy. 

* Please be bear in mind that some of the older films (we’re thinking about those from the 80s) that are PGs occasionally have some fruity language that almost certainly passed us by when we were growing up and watching them.

A lot of them are available across Amazon Prime, Disney+, Netflix, Apple TV.
