Halloween Movies That Aren’t Too Scary or Gory

Tragedy Girls (2017)

If you like the dark humor of Heathers and are okay with seeing gore, I highly recommend Tragedy Girls. This comedy-horror movie stars Alexandra Shipp and Brianna Hildebrand as two high school seniors who run a true-crime blog. When a serial killer starts stalking their small Midwestern town, they decide to use him as the fall guy while they commit the murders themselves in order to gain more followers.  Available to stream on Hulu

The Hills Have Eyes (2006)

Shanna Shipin, managing commerce editor, has four words to sum up her feelings on The Hills Have Eyes: “Horrifying. Grotesque. Never. Again.”  She continues, “I’m the world’s biggest scaredy-cat, but my best friend in high school was obsessed with horror movies. We started to build a routine where we’d see scary movies at off hours—I’d literally bring a blanket, lie across a seat or two, and sleep with my back to the screen while she’d watch the movie. One time I remember waking up during The Hills Have Eyes and have been traumatized ever since. I thought I was safe because the guy from Cinderella Story was in it, but the one scene I saw was so graphic and truly vomit-inducing that I’m practically gagging just thinking about it.”  Available to stream on Cinemax


5. Cabin Fever (2002)

Lionsgate Films “If your worst fear when shaving is cutting yourself and ripping your skin, then Cabin Fever turns it into a reality. It’s about five friends in a cabin in the woods who become infected with a flesh-eating virus and fight to survive it – and the homicidal locals.” —aramanthe “It’s honestly hard to tell if this movie is trying to be scary, campy, gross, or stupid – then you get to the leg shaving scene! Nope. Nope. Nope.” —clairebsaenz

14. Bird Box (2018)

Netflix “Hear me out, it was an okay movie with an okay plot (a little too much like A Quiet Place) but still, I watched the whole way through. But what I wasn’t expecting was the gore – I felt the amount of times we saw people kill themselves was overkill. Literally. I think that if it had focused more on a detailed plot (instead of watching people get burned alive or chopped up) it would’ve been a good movie. But after watching it, I was ready to pull my own eyes out.” —jordanbright “The injury detail gives me nightmares more than the monster did. When the lady stabbed the scissors into her neck – 😣” —lovemarvey

3. The Conjuring (2013)

James Wan has staked out a place among the modern masters of horror, directing films like SawDead SilenceInsidious, and this inspired-by-true-events chiller based on the experiences of real-life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren. The Warrens, best known for their work on the strange case that inspired the Amityville Horror movies (which played a part in The Conjuring 2), were portrayed by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga, who grounded the effective jump scares and freak-out moments with a believable world-weariness. Together, Wan and his co-leads found fresh terror in familiar genre tropes, and the end result is a sprawling cinematic universe that only continues to grow.
