Best Scary Movies for Halloween - 3 Classic Horror Movies
Psycho - This horror thriller is an Alfred Hitchcock classic. No
Halloween movie list is complete without it. It has both excellent directing and
acting, plus one of the scariest horror scenes of all time- the shower
scene. Even today's special effects and gore don't live up to the chills
of this horror classic. Norman Bates is truly one of the scariest
characters in film history.
The Omen- Not only is this movie scary, but it's disturbing as well. This horror movie stars the fantastic actor, Gregory Peck. Damian is a little boy who seems to be possessed. Is he the anti-Christ?
The Exorcist- This is another horror classic movie. This truly scary movie about a possessed girl made headlines for weeks when it came out in the 70s. And it will still make you afraid to turn out the lights.

Ring- This film, based on an original Japanese horror movie, was the
first horror movie I had seen in years that truly frightened me. It
wasn't just blood, gore, and special effects. It had me on the edge of
my seat, waiting in suspense.
Friday the 13th, the original- This movie was one of the first slasher movies, and it caused quite a stir when it was released in 1980. The story revolves around a summer camp. Why do camp counselors keep going missing?
Dracula - Watch the 1931 version starring Bela Lugosi. This Halloween movie is based on the classic Bram Stoker story. Even though it's an old movie, Lugosi manages to convey his power and magnetism as a vampire through the television.
The Shining - Truly one of the best scary movies for Halloween is The Shining. Jack Nicholson shines (sorry for the pun,) as the tormented writer. Some of the ending scenes are truly psychological thrillers that mess with your head.
