I second "Watcher In The Woods". If you grew up watching that movie on VHS in the early 80's and haven't seen it since, be sure to get the DVD that shows the alternate endings.
I also highly recommend another early 80's VHS classic: Tim Conway and Don Knotts in "The Private Eyes". It's a very funny, spooky film.
And it's "Azkaban". No "h".
The most scary movie - for me - is one out of the 1940's, "The Uninvited" with Ray Milland, Ruth Hussey, and Gail Russell. There is no blood, no gore, no cussing.
Moreover, the movie is not only a good ghost story but a fine mystery as well.
Because the movie relies on atmosphere to do the scaring, watch it at night, with little and low lights for best effect.
The one we look forward to the most at our house is "Hocus Pocus" starring Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimi. It can be seen every Halloween season on the Disney Channel.
Check out Abbott and Costello meet Frankenstein. Also Alvin and the Chipmunks meet the Wolfman and Alvin and the Chipmunks meet Frankenstein. So fun! and for all ages.
What about "The Watcher in the Woods" ?
Want areal scary movie that is clean and has some very thought provoking messages? Not for young children- parents should watch first to determine suitability for their kids. Something Wicked This Way Comes. Ooooo! I get scared just thinking about it!
And don't forget "Abbott and Costello meet Frankenstein (and Dracula and the Wolfman and the Invisible Man)" Definitely family fun.
What about "The Ghost and Mr. Chicken?" That's the one our family always watches around Halloween. It's with Don Knotts and is funny.
