All of these films will delight both kids and adults.

Halloween is fun time of the year for the kids—there are so many fun things to look forward to like choosing a costume, the class celebration at school, and trick-or-treating around the neighborhood with friends. Parents can decorate the house and make special treats to get in the spirit, but one simple way to get the whole family excited for All Hallows’ Eve is by planning a night in watching Halloween movies for kids.

We’ve compiled a list of both editor- and Real Simple reader-approved favorites. There’s enough variety for every taste, temperament, and age—and some of these the parents might remember watching when they were kids. Help with the age-appropriate part comes here from Common Sense Media, a nonprofit that helps families find the best media and technology for their kids.

So choose one (or two) of these, grab a bowl of popcorn and Halloween candy, and enjoy these flicks that range from classic to contemporary.
