Halloween’s coming - but these films are (mostly) safe to watch

Ghosts, fairies, the original goth family... there’s a whole lot of spooky coming to the big screen this Halloween but actually, there’s a lot that’s totally safe viewing for scaredy cats (just don’t scroll all the way through the list).

Don’t believe us? Close your eyes, search your hearts and tell us your deepest, darkest fear...dw we’ll tell you when to stop reading.

Abominable - 11 October

Your biggest fear is: yetis

The cinematic jury has been out on whether or not big foots (big feet?), yetis and other abominable snow creatures are actually scary or if they’re just big, shy cuddle bunnies. This yeti is definitely of the cuddle bunny variety.

Ghostbusters 35th Anniversary - various screenings throughout October

Your biggest fear is: ghosts

Something strange in your neighbourhood = an appropriately spooky premise for a Halloween watch, but this classic 80s horror-comedy is more likely to make you laugh than shock you.

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil - 18 October

Your biggest fear is: horned fairies

Maleficent’s back and it looks like she’s still working through some of her humankind issues. As long as you’re not on the receiving end of her fairy wrath, you should be fine. We wouldn’t want to be Michelle Pfieffer though.

The Addams Family - 25 October

Your biggest fear is: goths

They might have a cousin made of hair and a disembodied hand that runs errands for them, but The Addams Family are really just creepy and kooky in a totally family-friendly kind of way.

***BIT MORE INTENSE****

Terminator: Dark Fate - 23 October

Your biggest fear is: robots

We’re not sure which is scarier: seemingly indestructible robot assassins from the future or the existential crises they pose. Both will keep you up all night after Terminator: Dark Fate.

***TURN BACK NOW****

Countdown - 25 October

Your biggest fear is: technology and...death

Don’t be fooled by the name: this is nothing like the TV show. Instead of a massive clock telling you how long you’ve got to solve an anagram, an app tells you exactly when you’re going to die. You’ve been warned.

Countdown is out 25 October, find out more here

Doctor Sleep - 31 October

Your biggest fear is: mystical powers, unseen dark forces, creepy children, elevators full of blood, the dark, nightmares, The Shining, the shine, Ewan McGregor, sequels, fear itself

It’s the sequel to The Shining. Kind of says it all, doesn’t it? Mysterious messages appearing on walls, a woman who seems to want to eat people’s... breath? Ewan McGregor trying to hold it all together as the kid from The Shining all grown up...if you even plan on going AT ALL, don’t go alone.

Doctor Sleep is out 31 October, find out more here
