Thirteen nights until Halloween...

If you can not wait for the night of ghouls, haunts, and candy to come, here are thirteen not-so-scary Halloween movies you can enjoy!
1. It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown
This is a Halloween classic! While the rest of the Peanuts gang get ready for a Halloween party, Lunus hangs out in a pumpkin field hoping to catch a glimpse of The Great Pumpkin. It is said The Great Pumpkin rises from the pumpkin patch and brings toys to all the good girls and boys, and something rises from the patch alright: Charlie Brown's beagle, Snoopy.
FUN FACT: After this special originally aired, children all over the country sent candy to Charlie Brown out of sympathy
2. Beetlejuice
3. The Addams Family
4. Hocus Pocus
Another Halloween classic. The Sanderson sisters aren't just strange, they're three witches resurrected from the dead and they're back for revenge. Their goal is to steal the life from children and become immortal. The only thing stopping them is three children named Max, Dani, and Allison and their cat guide, Binx.
FUN FACT: This movie was directed by Kenny Ortega, who also directed the High School Musical phenomenon.

5. Halloweentown
6. Scooby Doo
7. Casper
8. Bedknobs and Broomsticks
9. Ghostbusters
10. The Nightmare Before Christmas
The great thing about this movie is it can be watched during Halloween and Christmas. Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King, is tired of the same old routine. He stumbles upon Christmas Town and is taken by surprise. He becomes so fascinated with his discovery, he decides to take over Christmas that year with the help of the Halloween Town residents.
FUN FACT: An excerpt from the Batman theme can be heard when the search-lights are looking for Jack.
11. The Haunted Mansion
12. The Corpse Bride
13. Mom's Got A Date With A Vampire
