Fall is my favorite season of the year, with it’s crisp air and rain and cloudy days, and Halloween is a great “party” right before the formal end of the year holidays.
As I mentioned in my previous blog post, I also like getting scared and this is the perfect time of the year to do it! So I present to you three movies that I think make for fun Halloween watching.
All three are anthology films. I like anthology films for Halloween because you get a lot of horror bang for your buck and aren’t committed to only one story for the whole duration of the movie. Also, if you are in a party setting, you don’t feel bad if you miss ten minutes while you hit on the hot Snow White on the other side of the room.
So here they are:
With creators like Stephen King an George A. Romero it has quite a bit of horror cred. Made in the 80’s (and it shows) I find that this still holds up as a time capsule of how movies were made back then, especially when it comes to the practical effects. It’s not scary like Exorcist scary but it is fun. Here’s the trailer:
While the first Creepshow is campy, Creepshow 2 is actually more on the scary side. King and Romero join forces again and raise the ante. With segments like “The Raft” and “The Hitch-hiker” there is a lot of suspense added to the gore. Here’s the trailer:
Trick ‘r Treat
There is a lot of history behind this movie getting released. You can read about it HERE, but what I like about this movie is that it celebrates Halloween and tells you scary stories at the same time. Plus, Sam is a pretty cool mascot for the holiday.
I truly love this movie and think it makes for a great Halloween tradition. Here’s the trailer:
