You might be familiar with the films on this list, because they were popular when you were younger. Maybe you even grew up with them. So choose to treat your kids with classic spooky films that you loved this Halloween with one of these films were Hulu.

1. Double, Double, Toil and Trouble

America’s most famous twins go on a Halloween-related adventure. Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen have to trick their malevolent aunt into giving them a moonstone, so they can save the family home.

2. The Nightmare Before Christmas

Celebrate Christmas and Halloween in one go with this classic animated Tim Burton movie. The King of Halloween Town, Jack Skellington, discovers Christmas Town and is just a little bit flummoxed.

3. Teen Wolf

No, this is not the MTV Teen Wolf series that features a lot of shirtless teenagers, but you might be able to trick your teenagers into watching this movie that way. This 1985 film stars Michael J. Fox of Back to the Future fame as a teenager who discovers werewolves run in his family. In this comedy, the high school nerd uses his newfound strength and agility to his advantage.

4. Tyler Perry's Boo! A Madea Halloween

Madea crashes a frat party in order to supervise some teenagers, but her job becomes much more difficult when poltergeists, ghosts, killers and zombies try to kill them all. This movie is rated PG-13, so it’s probably too scary for most children.
