At Halloween, the key for kids' movies might be that they're not too spooky.  Just enough cute fright is festive, and it won't keep the kids up in the wee hours with nightmares.  Did Idaho kids follow the trend?  

If you've got little ones, do you might pick an PG-rated, animated, Halloween movie for them to watch while they're digging through the Halloween candy bag.  Frontier Communications says most Idaho kids fall right into line with that, and want to watch Hotel Transylvania 2 if they're given the choice.  It's our state's Favorite Spooky Kids' Movie on streaming sites right now, in the #1 spot on the state-by-state map.  Hotel Transylvania 2 came out in 2015 and it's made over $473 million since then so we might be seeing Selena Gomez and Adam Sandler in a 3, 4, and 5.

E.T. is the most popular spooky kids movie in several states including Louisiana, Mississippi, and Minnesota.  I forced the kids to watch that with me a few weeks ago and they didn't care to watch it again and again and buy the E.T. figurines and coloring books and magnets like some of us might have back in the day.  What about Coraline?  That one gets weird, and might creep out parents too.  California and Nevada kids like that one the most.

At some point, kids lose the appreciation for cute fright, and they want to be scared out of their wits, don't they?  But for now, movies like The Addams Family, Hotel Transylvania 2, Goosebumps, and Gremlins might be good family movies to go with the orange and black popcorn balls.
