Halloween Movies

Halloween movies are fun and entertaining, but it can be difficult to choose the best one for you to watch. There are so many different options out there, each with their own genre and vibe, that picking just one can feel overwhelming.

To help you narrow down your choices, we’ve created a list of our favourite Halloween movies that will have you covered no matter what mood you’re in. Check them out below!

Watch This Halloween

Here are some great ways you can spend your time watching Halloween movies. If you’re staying in, you might want to order a pizza and invite friends over. For some of us, that’s a tradition for watching horror flicks.

And, if it’s a scary movie (or if it has ghosts or vampires), you might want popcorn and candy for some mid-movie treats (just remember moderation). There are many possibilities and opportunities here! Enjoy.

Other options include going out to watch Halloween movies with other people, especially close friends who love these types of films just as much as you do. It’s fun spending time with people whose company you enjoy and talking about all things related to spooky stories during these watching’s.

In fact, I think watching these sorts of films together is an especially good way to make relationships stronger because communication is essential in any healthy relationship. You might laugh about stuff together during these evenings together which means even more bonding occurs!

Never Ever Watch These

Watch a movie before it becomes a classic is some pretty solid advice—but perhaps you shouldn’t take it too literally. Avoiding these eight films will help you watch Halloween movies that don’t break certain unwritten rules of good horror: avoid comedy, avoid cliché, and stick with jump scares instead of scares.

The following films are not safe for watching on Halloween because they may leave your skin crawling. You’ve been warned!

Of course, simply watching any scary film won’t summon supernatural horrors into your home. Nor can watching Halloween movies actually turn someone into a witch or warlock (though I’d love to watch Jamie Lee Curtis experiment with dark magic in a hypothetical sequel to Halloween in 2036).

Watching horror films is fun and entertaining way to celebrate one of America’s favourite holidays as well as entertain yourself if you’re staying home alone on October 31st (not recommended). But beware: treat yourself too often, and soon enough, seeing human teeth where there should be just gums will become ordinary – just like eating processed food every day makes junk taste go down easy.

Whether To Watch Now, Later or Never

The time of year is upon us when even the non-horror movie-lover starts counting down their favourite scary films. Everyone has a different taste in horror and some of our picks may seem cliché, but here are ten sure-fire ways to watch Halloween movies no matter your preferences.

If you want to watch them now: Streaming sites like Netflix or Hulu always have lots of options available. And don’t forget about Redbox! It’s also an ideal way to kill time before a party or get ready for trick-or-treaters by streaming on multiple devices at once—no bad neighbourhood necessary.

If you want to watch them later: If you’re planning on watching Halloween movies with family or friends, pick one that’s not too intense so that everyone can enjoy it together!

Upcoming Horror Flicks You Can’t Miss

Before you head out to a movie theatre or plop down in front of your streaming service of choice, there are some horror flicks coming up that you’re going to want to check out. As fun as it is watching your favourite characters get killed off by Jason Voorhees, seeing a franchise run out of steam can be just as—if not more—disappointing.

The next few months should prove pretty exciting for fans of terrifying tales and devilish villains, though. Here’s what we recommend checking out Halloween (2018): John Carpenter’s iconic 1978 slasher film will have its newest iteration arrive on October 19th.

This year’s Halloween has a simple premise: Michael Myers, who was thought dead at the end of his last cinematic appearance back in 1998, escapes from prison and heads home to murder anyone unlucky enough to be standing between him and his sister.

Horror Movie Characters You Won’t Believe Are Real

The horror genre has given us iconic monsters and thrilling sequences, but it’s also yielded some of cinema’s most shocking characters. These real-life figures—such as serial killers Ed Gein and Aileen Wuornos—have inspired countless screen villains, but few are as memorable as these terrifyingly true tales.

Dive into a world where reality is even more frightening than fiction with our list of terrifying people from actual events that shocked society: a cop who was sentenced to death for killing his own wife, an English doctor found guilty of murdering 17 women and slashing their throats in order to sell their bodies for dissection classes, and so much more.

The Best Horror Movies of All Time

Everyone has their own preferences when it comes to horror films. Some people like cheap gore and scare tactics, while others prefer psychological thrillers that are slow-burning and intense. With so many kinds of horror films out there, it can be hard to know where to start if you’re looking for your first or next favourite spooky flick.

If you’re in need of some recommendations for a night in with all your favourite Halloween treats, check out our picks below. And don’t worry, there aren’t any classic slasher flicks on here—you won’t find any Michael Myers or Jason Voorhees films on our list.

The Scariest Women in Horror History

These evil, psychotic, terrifying women will make your blood run cold (in more ways than one). We’re taking a look at 15 of horror’s scariest women who are sure to make you shiver in more ways than one. Be warned: Some of these ladies might get under your skin.

If you haven’t seen some of these horror movies, don’t worry — we’ve included a full list of titles at the end. And if you have seen any of them before, well… it’s probably time for another look…
