Halloween is the perfect time to sit with big bowls of candy and popcorn and watch not-too-scary movies with the whole family.

Netflix has a haunted horde of kid-friendly Halloween movies streaming now that are less tricks and more like treats, from classics like Casper to animated favorites like Coraline. The spooky stories may give you a case of the willies but, hopefully, no nightmares on Elm or any other street. (For more grown-up scares, click here.)
