I’ll admit as much as I love movies I’m not much a horror movie buff.. having said that it’s Halloween and even I can suck it up for a few hour once a year..
So here are my
10 11 must watch Halloween movies; please note I’m not saying they’re the scariest movies ever made just movies I enjoy around this time of year..
Might as well start with a classic. Scream flipped all previous Horror movies on their head and was awesome doing it.
Dawn of the Dead
Maybe Zach Snyder’s best work.. James Gunn took a ballsy job in writing a script based on an all time classic but he crushed it. Too bad those 2 guys can’t find work these days 😐
Shaun of the Dead
You can’t watch one without the other.. Simon Pegg at his best.
Seven is awesome 365 days a year.. it’s lower on the list only because it’s not really a Halloween seasonal flick.. it’s just an awesome movie.. God how good is Seven? WHATS IN THE BOX?!?!
28 Days Later
Last time I bring up Zombies I promise.. the idea of running Zombies is the scariest in my book.. I DO NOT have the cardiovascular endurance to survive that kind of Zombie Apocalypse.. That’s what makes this my top Zombie flick..
Flat out it’s just goddamn scary..
Silence of the Lambs
Going back to Seven.. this is an awesome movie year round but any excuse to watch it I’m all for.
Cabin in the Woods
Joss Whedon & Drew Goddard being awesome and making a movie that flipped the entire genre on it’s head. It’s just so great..
The Blair Witch Project
Here’s why the Blair Witch Project is great.. Nothing happens for 95% of the movie.. It’s people arguing over a map and yelling ‘Hello?’ into the darkness.. BUT if you buy in to the plot at all.. the final shot will scare the living shit out of you and again NOTHING IS HAPPENING!
The sequels have watered things down substantially but I get it there was money to be made.. The first flick though is my all time favourite scary movie.. All they did was turn lights on and off from another room and slam doors with fishing line and it’s terrifying.. Every time I watch it I get more and more caught up in the suspense of the whole ordeal. Such a fun movie.
WAIT! STOP EVERYTHING I FORGOT ONE!!!
So that was my original Top 10 but I forgot the best one!
Ahhh ok.. that’s better.. all is right with the world. Carry on.
