Halloween/Scary Movies to watch before October ends!

Halloween is upon us! Check out my movie recommendations, and yes, I have watched all these this month or plan on re-watching them!

Trick r’ Treat

Believe it or not, I just watched this movie for the first time the other day. I don’t think it was as good of a horror movie as it could have been, but there were some really good parts! It shares multiple stories in one movie about people going back on Halloween traditions and not respecting the holiday. You’ll see a ton of 90’s/00’s movie/tv stars you loved.

Scare factor: 7/10 For some frightening imagery and some gore.

Sinister (1&2)

The first Sinister is probably the scariest movie I’ve ever watched. The first time, I didn’t get to sleep until 7 am the next morning because I was so afraid. I even names one of my cats after Mr. Boogie! He possesses children and they end up killing their family, they record the murders on 8mm film and replay them, all you hear in the background is the film spinning, no music. The second one isn’t as scary because you’re seeing it from the child’s POV and not the parents.

Scare factor: 10/10 I can’t re-watch the first one because it scared me so much.

Cabin in the Woods

This movie is my favorite ‘cabin in the woods’ movie where, of course, a bunch of college kids head out to a cabin in the woods and hell is unleashed upon them. I like this movie because of the funny stoner that knows they shouldn’t be there doing the things they’re doing but no one listens to him. But wait! Ah, this cabin in the woods movie has a BIG  plot twist, and I think my other horror friends are going to love it if they give it a try!

Scare factor: 5/10 The humor and plot twist, makes this not so scary.

Tucker & Dale VS Evil

My husband introduced me to this movie about two backwoods hillbillies who are minding their own business when a group of teens stumble upon their house. It’s more of a comedy than a scary movie, but it does have some gruesome scenes. This is a movie you can watch with the lights off and not worry about what goes bump in the night.

Scare factor: 4/10 only due to the gore.

Frankenweenie (or any Tim Burton movie!)

Ah, I do enjoy The Nightmare Before Christmas and Corpse Bride, but Frankenweenie is probably my favorite Burton film about a wiener dog who dies and his owner brings him back to life. I love it because of the kooky kids in it and the black and white reminds me of the old horror movies. Yes, this movie is in all back and white and it came out a few years ago!

Scare factor: 1/10

Hocus Pocus

What’s Halloween without your favorite Sanderson sisters? If you haven’t watched Hocus Pocus, who are you!? We can’t be friends! I’m not even going to explain why this movie is awesome. Just go watch it and enjoy!

Scare factor: 1/10
