We all know by now that a lot of video on demand services leave a lot to be desired in the “current releases” genre. One time that doesn’t matter a lick: Halloween! The holiday where the best scary, creepy, or funny-creepy movies never really get old. especially for kids and families.

Searching around the Amazon Instant Video pages, here are our picks for fun Halloween movies to watch on your Kindle, Roku, Tivo, PS3, or Xbox360 with the family. Well, maybe after littler kids are well tucked away. Although I found a couple for them too. And some of them are even free, if you’ve got Amazon Prime.

Also? Thank goodness for Tim Burton. –Liz
