You can’t go wrong with Hocus Pocus! The family-friendly comedy stars Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy acting as the well-known Salem sisters. The 300-year-old witches set out to cast a spell on the town and reclaim their youth.

Haunted Mansion (2003)

A Disney classic! 

Eddie Murphy (Jim) brings his comedic genius to this spooky story. The family of four head out on a road trip, but after a business call, the family are re-routed to a mansion with the intention of just popping in. They end up trapped inside the haunted mansion and while they all try to escape, Jim learns an important lesson about the family he has neglected.

Disney doesn’t do a whole lot of scary, but when they do, they do it right!
