For all you guys who love this time of year 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 picked films that revolve around ghosts, vampires, werewolves and magic, so everything's covered.

Another favourite for Halloween wusses.
