If you read my blog, you’ll know that we are huge fans of Netflix in our house.
This month, we noticed that Netflix set up a new section in the Genre section titled Halloween Favorites, which were then further separated by Family options and those of the gory persuasion.
We’ve had the chance to watch several flicks with the kids this month that we really enjoyed. Some we’ve seen before but loved enough to watch again, and some new ones as well.
Some of the flicks we enjoyed as a family include:
Hotel Transylvania – the kids love this one and I do too, but oy Adam Sandler’s Dracula voice drives me crazy, and not in a good way.
Corpse Bride – Love it.
Addams Family Values – The kids fought me on this one because it looked “old from the 80s” but they loved everything about it.
Ghostbusters – We tried this one with the kids because I think we need to expose our children to the classics, but they weren’t into it. I watched it again after they went to bed because Bill Murray can no wrong, ever.
Without the kids, I watched:
Sleepy Hollow – I’ve seen this a few times but it is so good and so visually fantastic and creepy that it’s a must see on a regular basis. Johnny Depp is so good, he is absolutely in his element.
And I used to love watching scary movies but then I had kids, and I can’t seem to stomach them anymore, sadly. If I wasn’t such a wimp I would totally watch:
Cabin in the Woods – I’ve heard it’s funny and very scary and Chris Hemsworth is in it so there’s that.
Paranormal Activity – Seriously, I’ve wanted to see this since it came out, but the trailer makes me curl up in a ball and rock back and forth whimpering, so I’m thinking it’s not going to happen.
The Grudge – All I know about this movie is something to do with a shower, and a hand coming out of someone’s head or not. I have no idea but it looks too scary for this wimp.
Have you seen any great scary flicks on Netflix this month?
