10 Halloween movies for a shivery family moment
Halloween is the perfect occasion to spend some nice family time. Of course, you can dress up as vampires, zombies or other monsters to take souvenir pictures. Then, for the evening itself, there are several things you can do. For instance, a pumpkin carving contest is a must. Then, depending on the tradition, you may go trick or treating with your children. And why not watch a Halloween movie all together? Here is a selection of movies suitable for young and old!
