Halloween is coming and if you’re like me, you dread the line up of bloody, violent, horror films that will be on TV.  Halloween is my favorite holiday, but scaring myself half to death isn’t my idea of fun. Here are some movies that set the scene and put you in the mood for Halloween fun without having to lose sleep from nightmares! There are many more, but these are my favorites.
The 10 Greatest Not Scary Movies for Halloween
10. Disney’s Haunted Mansion: Eddie Murphy and his family are trapped in the famous Haunted Mansion of the Magic Kingdom Attraction fame.
9.Coroline: An adventurous girl finds another world that is a strangely idealized version of her frustrating home, but it has sinister secrets.
8. Nighmare Before Christmas: Tim Burton animated film with Jack Skelton as the main character.
7.Ghostbusters: Classic Bill Murray and friends saving NewYork from ghost invasion.
6.Arsenic and Old Lace: An oldie but a
goodie. Cary Grant stars as the nephew of 2 sweet little old ladies, who happen to have 17 bodies in the cellar! This is Cary Grant at his absolute best!

5.The Corpse Bride: Tim Burton's tale with the voice of Johnny Depp as Victor Von Dort, a shy young man betrothed to the lovely Victoria. When Victor goes into the woods to practice his vows, he finds himself married to a blue-skinned, maggot-ridden beauty.
4. Casper :When an afterlife therapist (Bill Pullman) is hired to rid a haunted house of ghosts, he and his daughter (Christina Ricci) have a close encounter with Casper, "the friendliest ghost you know." Unfortunately, Casper's got three not-so-friendly uncles, Stinkie, Fatso, and Stretch, who are unbendable in their desire to force the "fleshies" out.  
3.Beetlejuice:Michael Keaton as a crazy undead creature trying to marry the pretty young daughter.
2.The Adams Family: Or any of the sequels. Nothing says Halloween like this amazing collection of family members! My favorite character is Christina Ricci as Wednesday Adams! You’ll love every one of these movies.
1.Young Frankenstein –A Mel Brooks film (need I say more?) Some sexual innuendo, hysterically funny and perfect for Halloween night! My family never misses the opportunity to watch this movie!
