15 Not-So-Scary Halloween Movies for Kids

Casper Movie Poster

Casper [PG]


How can you be afraid of ghosts when the ghost is small, boyish, and named Casper?

Christina Ricci stars in this oldie-but-goodie about a young girl named Kat who befriends a very friendly ghost.

The story begins with an irritable woman, Ms. Carrigan, who inherits an old, rickety house in New England from her deceased father. She is furious when she finds out the house is haunted by the (not-so-scary) Casper, and employs a "professional ghost exterminator" (played by Dan Ackroyd) to get rid of him. When that doesn't work, she hired a "ghost psychiatrist", who arrives at the house with his daughter, Kat.

Kat and Casper become fast friends as they work to save the home that houses not only Casper, but his three ghost uncles, from the mean Ms. Carrigan.

It's a heart-warming story about friendship that will have both kids and parents cheering for the good guys all the way to the end.
