Best Movies for Halloween

Updated on January 9, 2017

Halloween is Perfect for Scary Movies

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, with the exception of Christmas of course. Yes I enjoy going trick-or-treating, dressing up, and all or the candy, but my favorite thing is the horror movies. This is a perfect time to gather all of your horror movies and sit up all night watching the movies that you love. This lens will show you my favorite Halloween movies of all time. This year you can enjoy being SCARED!

Halloween

Of course I have to begin with my favorite Halloween movie, which is of course Halloween! I love the entire franchise and the remakes, but I have to watch the original Halloween movie on my horror movie night. This movie is a classic. Made in 1978, with Jamie Lee Curtis, it will never be overdone. If you have been hiding under a rock and has never seen Halloween, be sure that you do this Halloween!

The Exorcist 1973

The Exorcist 1973

I truly believe that the Exorcist (1973) is one of the scariest movies of all time. This movie provides a true feeling of fear, which makes it perfect to watch on Halloween. I remember watching this movie for the first time when I was around 12 years old. I thought it was just because I was so young that it scared me so bad, but I was wrong. I watched it for the second time when I was about 20, and I was still hiding under the covers. It is one of my favorite movies to watch on Halloween.

The Amityville Horror 1979

The Amityville Horror is another classic that is a must for Halloween. The fact that the movie was based on true events, makes it even better. My favorite thing in the movie is the house, it has eyes. No matter if you believe the story behind the movie or not, it is a great movie to watch on Halloween.

The Crazies 2010

This is one of my newest favorite Halloween Movies. It is not the scariest movie ever, but it is a great movie. Timothy Olyphant makes it great on your eyes, and it has a great plot. This movie provides great enjoyment on Halloween, and any other time of the year.

Stephen King

Stephen King is the master of Horror, and I can not just choose a couple of his movies to watch for Halloween. I try to watch as many as possible for Halloween, and any other time of the year. These are my favorite Stephen King movies for Halloween:

-IT (Pennywise is the best character in a Horror movie)

-Carrie1976 (Sissy Spacek is great as Carrie)

-Cujo (Love that is is not overly impossible)

-Children of the Corn (1984)

-Silver Bullet (A must for Halloween)

-Pet Sematary (1989)

-Needful Things

-The Shining

-Rose Red (This takes a couple of days, but I love it)

-Dreamcatcher

-The Mist

OK, I can not watch all of these on Halloween, but I make a point to pick a couple each year. Stephen King is the master of Horror, and provides some of the best movies to watch on Halloween.

      I might get totally scared out of my wits by these movies, but I do enjoy the occasional horror flick. Thanks for the recommendations.
