You are either the kind of person that loves a good scare or your’e not. We’re on the latter side because life is complicated, unpredictable and at times scary enough already – why scare ourselves when when we’re going for entertainment?
This list from Vogue which features the best scary but not too scary movies is perfect for anyone who jumps while watching Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. And although Harry Potter is not technically on this list, we think it counts — it contains witches right? It answers the question – how does one get into the Halloween Spirit without having nightmares at night? To supplement this list, we also include one of our own… with surreal, weird movies instead of scary ones.
Only Lovers Left Alive. Tilda Swinton at her best.
Alice in Wonderland. A classic reinvented.

Maleficent. A probable halloween look as well.
Big Fish. A fantasy comedy drama film directed by Tim Burton – all sorts of weird and wonderful.
Wristcutters. A black comedy indie movie that’s bound to inspire a smile or two.
The Lord of The Rings and Hobbit series. May the strange adventures begin…
Harry Potter series. Duh.
