15 Perfect Halloween Movies for P(w)ussies

There is something truly sentimental about this time of year. October has always been my favorite month because it evokes wonderful memories from my childhood. Everything from the changing of the seasons, to watching football, the Simpsons Treehouse of Horror, and (of course) Halloween festivities.

Well, I like just about everything except horror movies.

You could make an endless list of better nostalgic Halloween flicks: Friday the 13th, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Hellraiser, Childs Play etc. However, those all scare the crap out of me.
