20 (More) Non-Scary Halloween Movies to Watch This Year

20 (More) Movies to Watch this Halloween.jpg

If you remember my list of 20 Non-Scary Halloween Movies from last year, then you know that on my list of favorite holidays, Halloween ranks at the very bottom. That being said, I love being festive and celebrating so I decided that I couldn’t completely leave Halloween in the dust this year. Since I included many of what I consider to be “classic” Halloween movies in last year’s post, feel free to check out that post for those recommendations. Some of the movies I’ve included in this year’s list may not all seem like they fit the ticket – never say never. Give a couple of them a watch and you’ll be surprised by how Halloween-y you’ll feel. I’ve also thrown in my spooky TV show recommendations down at the bottom, so you can get in the Halloween spirit regardless of your attention span!

        I attended a predominantly black urban high school back in the ’60s. There was an elaborate system of handshakes, actually rooted in Masonic ritual, which was a core part of my classmates’ identity. I see the potential for accusing adtriismratons who prohibit handshakes of being racist.
