Rather than expose your children to fear and demonic influences on Halloween, why not introduce them to wonderful Christian holidays that occur at the same time, like Reformation Day or All Saints’ Day?

Here is a list of some of the best movies that you can watch this fall instead of Halloween horror:

QUO VADIS is an epic presentation of the conflict between the paganism of Nero’s Rome and early Christianity, in a story involving a Roman general who falls in love with a Christian woman.
