Halloween bank holiday weekend is a good time for watching movies. Typically, you'd watch horror. However, not everyone likes horror, and some people are wusses. 

For all you guys who love the season but hate to be scared, we've come up with a heap of non-scary Halloween movies you can watch. Many of them are suitable for all the family.

Our picks span animation, comedy, zombie movies and more. We've also picked films that revolve around ghosts, vampires, werewolves and magic, so everything's covered.

 

'The Addams Family'

Had to start with a classic!

It's a damn good sequel, and you could do a double bill with the first one!

'Ghostbusters'

Another favourite for Halloween wusses.

This third stop-motion animated, Tim Burton-produced feature is worth a watch.

A 2006 animation that proved a hit with critics and the box office.

'Paranorman'

We included this instead of 'Coraline' because 'Coraline' is actually scary (seriously).

'Hotel Transylvania'

'Hotel Transylvania' was out the same year as 'Frankenweenie' and 'Paranorman' - it beat both in box office receipts.

'Teen Wolf'

Because werewolves.

A sweet story about the friendship between a boy and a young vampire. Plus the kid from 'Jerry Maguire' is in it.

'Ghost'

The CGI is way too dated to be scary.
