Still need something to do for Halloween Season?? Consider some films from my top 20 Halloween movie list.
This list was carefully compiled and not easy to narrow down. This list is designed to be:
- Diverse – A mixture of slasher, psychological, comedy, family-friendly, classics, ghoulish, and just Halloween immersive movies. I tried not to repeat the same type of monster too much either.
- Non -repetitive – If I added any movies from franchises, I only added ONE, and it is the best stand-alone of the bunch.
In no particular order the movies areas follows:
- A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)
- Trick r Treat
- Return of the Living Dead
- Night of the Creeps
- Lost Boys
- The Thing
- Halloween (1978)
- The Addams Family (1991)
- The Exorcist
- The Rocky Horror Picture Show
- Evil Dead 2
- Elvira: Mistress of the Dark
- 13 Ghosts (2001)
- The Nightmare Before Christmas
- Poltergeist (1986)
- Night of the Living Dead (1968)
- The Ring (2002)
- Tales From the Crypt: Demon Knight
Honorable Mentions: The Conjuring, Halloween 3 (the “black sheep” of the Halloween series, but an excellent movie in it’s own right).
Any one of these will make for an good Halloween night.
Many Horror greats can be see free streaming on YouTube and other services. The original John Carpenters Halloween (1978) can be seen free on YouTube. Also the original “Night of the Living Dead” and “Last House on the Left” are both in public domain and therefore can be seen anywhere for free (including YouTube).
HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVRYBODY
