What's A Horror Movie That's Scary But Not Too Scary?

It's hard to like spooky season and hate jump scares.

Spooky season is upon us, and that means it's the perfect time to enjoy some scary horror movies to set the mood. Unless you're a big ol' scaredy-cat like me.

Netflix

But Halloween isn't Halloween without some spooks and scares, even if they're toned down a bit. So I want to know your favorite spooky horror film that even wimps can watch and sleep soundly afterward.

Cartoon Network

Like, maybe Jennifer's Body is your go-to suggestion for scary-movie nights because the comedy and campiness keep you from being scared of the demonic possession.

20th Century Fox

Perhaps Get Out and A Quiet Place are your favorite horror movies because they lean more toward "heart-racing thriller" instead of "make you paranoid all night that a creepy ghost face is going to appear in all your mirrors."

Universal Pictures

Or maybe Beetlejuice, with its PG rating and musical numbers, is the closest you can get to horror when Halloween comes around.

Warner Bros.

Let us know in the comments which horror (or horror-adjacent) movie is spooky without being too scary and why! The best submissions may be featured in an upcoming BuzzFeed Community post!

Paramount Pictures
