Scared of scary movies? Jason, Freddy, or Micheal Myers not your thing? Well, don’t panic because VMan has you covered. As All Hallows’ Eve draws closer we’ve rounded up the best non-scary Halloween movies for you to stream this October.

Hocus Pocus (1993)

“It’s been 300 hundred years, right down to the day. Now the Witch is back, and there’s Hell to pay. Three sister witches are back for one night only, unless the can suck the life out of every child in town.

 

Teen Wolf (1985)

A high school boy inherits superhuman werewolf powers from his father. It’s not all bad though, his new powers help him kill at basketball.

 

The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)

Tim Burton’s iconic animation feature is a great choice for Halloween, it also doubles up as a Christmas movie, so it really is a win-win situation.

 

Sabrina the Teenage Witch (1996)

Before Netflix, before the hit 90’s show, Sabrina the Teenage Witch made its debut as a made-for-TV movie. Starring Melissa Joan Hart and a young Ryan Reynolds.

 

Ghostbusters (1984)

It’s the 80’s, they fight ghosts and there’s a sassy receptionist. What’s not to love?

 

The Witches (1990)

Based on Rohl Dahl’s beloved Children’s book, the witches is the perfect antidote to scary slashers flicks. Just make sure to watch the 90’s original and not the 2020 remake (sorry Anne).

 

The Corpse Bride (2005)

Another Tim Burton Animation. The Corpse Bride is a melancholy tale of love, marriage and betrayal.

 

Addams Family Values (1993)

‘Their creepy and they’re kooky, Mysterious and spooky. Their all together ooky, The Adams family’. A young Chrisitna Ricci steals every scene that she’s in as Wednesday Adams. Joan Cusack delivers an iconic performance as ‘Debbie’ the crazed Black Widow, with a love of pastels.

 

Beetlejuice (1988)

The 1988 hit film stars Winona Ryder in one of her most iconic roles, as teen-goth, Lydia Deetz, “I myself am strange, and unusual’. Terrorised by the ‘recently deceased’ Lydia calls upon the professional poltergeist services of Beetlejuice. Big Mistake!

 

The Craft (1996)

Halloween movie? Or Fashion Movie? The Craft is both! The iconic 90’s movie tells the story of four witches who’s friendship is tested by power, control, and dark magic. The protagonist Sarah must use her natural abilities to fight against her former BFF’s.

 

Death Becomes Her (1992)

A campy cautionary tale of two frenemies, who discover the true cost of eternal youth as they take desperate measures to preserve their beauty.

 

Practical Magic (1998)

Sisters Sally and Gillian are witches just like their older kooky aunts. The two women navigate life, love, family, and oh yeah, an obsessive ex who comes back from the dead.

 

Clue (1985)

A black comedy based on the popular board game of the same name, Clue did poorly at the box office but has since gone on to gain a die-hard cult following.

 

Edward Scissorhands (1990)

The original sad boy Edward Scissorshands is a macabre love story of belonging and identity. Killer visual, costumes, story, and set design, this is Tim Burton at his best.

 

The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975)

This campy sing-a-long, musical horror was released in 1975. It’s impossible not to love this movie.

 

Jawbreaker (1999)

What’s scarier than accidentally killing your best friend? Highschool! Three teens desperately try to cover-up a prank gone wrong in this underrated masterpiece by Darren Stein. They enlist the help of ugly duckling, Fern Mayo and in exchange offer her popularity, friendship, beauty, and validation.

 

Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992)

Before Sarah Michelle Gellar graced our TV screen as spunky teen Buffy Summers. Kristy Swanson kicked ass in the title role as airhead turned vampire slayer.

 

Casper (1995)

A Therapist and his teen daughter move into a crumbling mansion. It’s not long before the father-daughter duo are hunted by the resident ghost.

 

Teen Witch (1989)

1980s, camp-cult classic, Teen Witch tells the story of young Louise Miller who discovers magical powers on her 16th birthday. It stars Robyn Lively, aka older sister of Blake Lively, and Zelda Rubinstein as Madame Serena.

 

ET (1982)

Everyone’s favourite Extra-Terrestrial. ET is a heartwarming story of a young boy and his alien best friend. Just try not to cry at the end.
