Horror has always been seen as a genre primarily for adults. After all, the entire intention of the storytelling style is to creep out and scare its audience, and that doesn’t often have a great effect on children who may not have a firm grasp on separating fiction from reality. However, that doesn’t mean that we haven’t seen some truly amazing horror movies made specifically for all audiences come out over the years, and now seems like the perfect time to celebrate those titles.

This weekend will see the theatrical release of Rob Letterman’s Goosebumps - based on R.L. Stine’s wonderful kid-friendly horror book series – and given the movie’s monster mayhem and target demographic, we decided to take a look back at the last few decades and pluck out a selection of 10 great scary movies that kids should love. Read on for our selections!

Monster House
Monster House
Director Gil Kenan’s Monster House is definitely an off-beat movie. It has a peculiar CGI animation style, an odd ensemble making up its voice cast (including Steve Buscemi, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Kathleen Turner and Jason Lee), and it’s story centers not just on a haunted house, but one that’s actually managed to come to life to eat any and all who pass by. Strange as it is, however, it also works as a creepy, fun 1980s throwback that has a fun approach to monsters and a hefty dose of imagination.
