If there's one thing I really love about this month, it's watching as many halloween and scary movies as I can. You've got the classics, to the really scary, to the really freaky, so here is my list for all of the above...
- Hocus Pocus
This one has to be watched multiple times during the month because it is so great. I loved it as a kid, and I love it even more now.
The original isn't as creepy because many of us weren't around when it came out in theaters, but it is still definitely a classic. If you want scary, check out Rob Zombie's remake. That one gave me nightmares.
This one re-wrote the genre, and it's just really, really good.
- The Exorcist
Gave me nightmares as a child, but I appreciate its terror.
- Double, Double, Toil and Trouble
I will admit I was obsessed with the olsen twins as a kid. I watched probably all of their movies, and this one is one of my faves. "The MoooOOOnSttOONNnnee". You can watch this gem on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kurvv4DN6MY.
Disney used to have the greatest made-for-tv movies back in the day.
All I have to say is Devon Sawa coming down the stairs.
- Monster House
This movie is adorable and funny.
- Trick 'r Treat
This one is the latest addition to my must watch list because it's four stories in one, all dealing with halloween.
- The Orphanage
If you don't mind reading, this one is in subtitles, but the story is so captivating you forget that you're listening to another language.
- Drag Me to Hell
This one surprised me because it was actually scary and not a meh as many newer films seem to be now.
- Halloween H2O
I like this version because it's an update and has jamie lee curtis, plus josh hartnett (where has he been these days?)
- Final Destination and Final Destination 5
If you only watch two films out of this overly extended franchise, then make sure it's these two.
- Paranormal Activity
The original, and the creepiest. I couldn't sleep after watching it because I was too focused on listening to noises in my house.
- The Others
It can be a bit slow, but the plot makes up for everything.
- A Tale of Two Sisters
This is a south korean horror film so there will be subtitles. It is just chilling. The american version is called The Uninvited, but it's not as good.
- The Sixth Sense
Back when M. Night Shymalan could do no wrong, this one was his best work.
There are plenty more films that could be added to these lists.
What are some of your favorites to watch?
