It’s day TWO of the 31 Days of Halloween and today were talking about some of my (and I bet yours) favorite movies, my Top 100 Halloween Movies Part One. Specifically horror movies but not all are full of blood, guts, and gore. Titles marked with * are all kid friendly movies. If you missed day one’s post, click here.
Coming up with a list of awesome horror movies to watch is easy, yes, but narrowing it down to just thirty-one? Not so much, so I decided why limit myself. Instead I’ve listed some great horror to Halloween themed movies for you to choose from. Get ready to set the Halloween mood this October by choosing a different scary movie for each day of the month.
In no particular order I present to you a mixed list of not only horror classics but a few older (and newer) good scares I’m guessing some of you might not have even seen, yet.
A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) – Plot: On Elm Street, Nancy Thompson and a group of her friends are being tormented by a killer in their dreams named Fred Krueger.
Carrie (1976) – Plot: A shy, friendless teenage girl who is sheltered by her domineering, religious mother, unleashes her telekinetic powers after being humiliated by her classmates at her senior prom.
Curse of the Demon (1957) – Plot: American professor John Holden arrives in London for a parapsychology conference, only to find himself investigating the mysterious actions of Devil-worshiper Julian Karswell.
Dead Alive (1992) – Plot: A young man’s mother is bitten by a Sumatran rat-monkey. She gets sick and dies, at which time she comes back to life, killing and eating dogs, nurses, friends, and neighbors.
Detention (2011) – Plot: As a copycat killer named after movie villain Cinderhella stalks the student body at Grizzly Lake High School, a group of co-eds band together to survive while serving detention.
Drag Me To Hell (2009) – Plot: A loan officer who evicts an old woman from her home finds herself the recipient of a supernatural curse. Desperate, she turns to a seer to try and save her soul, while evil forces work to push her to a breaking point.
*Double, Double Toil and Trouble (1993) – Plot: On Halloween night, two precocious little girls try to save their parents from the greedy clutches of their nasty old Capitalist aunt. Magic abounds and they meet new albeit strange friends along the way.
*Hocus Pocus (1993) – Plot: After three centuries, three witch sisters are resurrected in Salem, Massachusetts on Halloween night, and it is up to two teenagers, a young girl, and an immortal cat to put an end to their reign of terror once and for all.
Inferno (1980) – Plot: An American college student in Rome and his sister in New York investigate a series of killings in both locations where their resident addresses are the domain of two covens of witches.
It (1990) – Plot: In 1960, seven pre-teen outcasts fight an evil demon who poses as a child-killing clown. Thirty years later, they reunite to stop the demon once and for all when it returns to their hometown.
Jaws (1975) – Plot: A giant great white shark arrives on the shores of a New England beach resort and wreaks havoc with bloody attacks on swimmers, until a local sheriff teams up with a marine biologist and an old seafarer to hunt the monster down.
For my family this is a season all about fun, scares, thrills, mischief, and an overall sense of just having a good time during the Halloween season. We look forward to planning our movie line-up for October each year. Build memories with your family and start planning your October movie line-up early.
