Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events
Jim Carrey plays the sinister Count Olaf, who plots to steal the fortune inherited by his newly orphaned nieces and nephew. Spooky, family fun base on the books of the same name.

While the new Jack Black-fronted Goosebumps movie may not be available at home in time for Halloween, fans of the R.L Stine books can sink their teeth into four seasons’ worth of this TV adaptation from the late 90s.

Horrible Histories
While it’s much more funny than it is scary, the BBC’s adaptation of the long running Horrible History books still packs in enough gruesome facts to be worthy of a spot on this list. Besides which, the huge range of UK comedy talent on show makes it a must see for kids and adults alike.
