Teen and Family Friendly Horror to Stream for Halloween 2018

Looking for teen and family friendly offerings to stream on Halloween? Here are my picks  from the three major streaming services.

Halloween is the perfect night for horror movies, but if you’ve got kids at home, you don’t want anything really gory or scary.

Well you’re in luck, because this list is full of films and series that are kid and teen friendly. I’ve combed through the offerings from the three major streaming services, and these are ones I think your family will enjoy:

Who you gonna call to fight the ghosts and entertain your family? The original Ghostbusters, of course.


Monster Squad

Dracula is alive. In fact, he plans to rule the world and that is why he seeks the help of other legendary monsters. However, a bunch of kids regarded by their peers as losers uncover the plan and prepare for a counter strike. This 80s film is still fun for most ages.

On Luce Price’s first day at the Sword and Cross boarding school, her attention is captured by the strangely familiar Daniel Grigori. She soon discovers he is a fallen angel who has battled over her for centuries. If your teen’s idea of horror is the Twilight series, then they should enjoy this film.


Light as a Feather

An innocent game of “Light as a Feather, Stiff as a Board” goes wrong when the five teen girls who played start dying off in the exact way that was predicted, forcing the survivors to figure out why they’re being targeted – and whether the evil force hunting them down is one of their own. This series is suitable for teens.

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

Based on the classic comic, this version is not like the other series starring the teenage witch. In this darker show set in the 1960s, as her 16th birthday nears, Sabrina must choose between the witch world of her family and their allegiance to Satan, and the human world of her friends. If your kids watch the show Riverdale, they should be fine with this show.



Creeped Out

This anthology series, with each episode features a new setting, story and characters, although some details connect the stories together. Each episode begins and ends with an appearance from The Curious, a mysterious story collector whose face is always concealed by a mask. There is very little blood or super scary stories, and most have a bit of a message to them. Suitable for most ages.

If you don’t have time to watch them all, my faves were “Bravery Badge,” “Catfood,” and “Shed No Fear.”


Gnome Alone

In this fun animated film, a teenage girl moves into a new house in a new town and discovers her house is under attack by underground beasts. After making the discovery, she finds that she and the house gnomes are the only ones who can offer protection to the town.Suitable for all ages.
