Low-Fright Movie Night: Halloween Movies That Won’t Scare Your Pants Off

I love almost everything about Halloween. Candy? Awesome. Costumes? Fun! Falling leaves, cider, donuts, tacky decorations? Sure! But there’s one big part of the holiday I can’t get behind: being scared. Slasher movies gross me out. I love ghost stories and spooky stuff, but as night falls and I’m alone in my 105-year-old house, I really, really wish I had skipped it. Besides, there’s plenty of real-life stuff to be afraid of, like repaying my student loans, or the prospect that the dead mouse I found this morning has left a widow and children somewhere in my house.

What Photo-Manip Apps Do You Prefer?

And yes, I could and have searched them up myself (I’m not being lazy, I swear! Procrastinating a bit, but not lazy!), but I’m asking for opinions here.  Features I’m looking for are ease of use (since I’m a noob), price (since I’m broke), and quality (since I’m fly like that). Mobile apps and browser apps are both totally fine. So throw some suggestions my way, pretty please? Pretty pretty please? Pretty please with puppies on top? And the puppies are only for decoration, not for eating, just to clear that up, but if you want they can be holding bags of jelly beans or chocolate chips or whatever you’re into these days. I won’t judge.
