Our family has a Saturday night tradition.
We love Svengoolie. His perfect blend of horror and comedy make watching these classic horror films a blast.
I am so happy Isaiah is 10 now, it’s the perfect age to watch these classic horror films. I have chosen only the ones I believe are appropriate for older kids.
Unfortunately, a huge chunk of them aren’t even available, but plenty are. Click on the image to go to Amazon, some come and go on Amazon, so I included those as well.
Here’s a list of must watch movies to start your Classic Horror Film family tradition.
Dracula – The original! This was the first film to establish Universal Studios as the house of horror! Bela Lugosi as Dracula!
The Cat and the Canary
The Revenge of Frankenstein (not available on Amazon)
The Haunted Palace (Not available on Amazon)
The Black Cat (Not Available on Amazon)
This is a great place to start if you want to watch the best classic horror movies for older kids. We often pick the ones up we can’t get through Amazon at the library, so you should check that out.
I really enjoy our Saturday night tradition, why not start one of your own?
What is your favorite classic horror film?
