What better time to watch horror movies than Halloween. Horror fans love this time of year and today my guest bloggers and I will be looking at our top 5 Halloween Horror Movies. If you see any Halloween movies that aren’t horror based, that is because they couldn’t choose and picked any Halloween movie, so lets get to the lists! This is a versus post so make sure you fill in the poll!
My Top 5
5. Halloween 3: Season of the Witch (1982)
Some of you may be thinking why this movie, and why not just add it in the Halloween Franchise? Well in my opinion this is a completely different movie than the other Halloween movies in the franchise. Everyone shits on this film just because Myers isn’t in it, but if you all just looked at it as a separate movie you would love it. This is one of the most unique Halloween based horror films to ever be created.
4. Ginger Snaps (2000)
Two death-obsessed sisters, outcasts in their suburban neighborhood, must deal with the tragic consequences when one of them is bitten by a deadly werewolf. This is a great movie and deserves to be on the list.
3. Hocus Pocus (1993)
An all time Halloween classic, one of the best Halloween films I have ever seen. This one was always a child favorite of mine and till this day I still love watching this movie during this time of year. This ones a must watch!
2. Trick ‘r Treat (2007)
1. Halloween Franchise (1978-2009)
Darren’s Top 5
In the UK we hardly celebrate Halloween so this list was hard to put together, I decided to only include one of the actual Halloween films and have focused on any film that is Halloween based.
5. Monster House (2006)
Their neighbors house is really a living breathing monster. What is designed as a film for the family actually turns into one of the best horror animation is recent years, when three friends discover that.
4. V/H/S – Segment 10/31/98 (2012)
3. Halloween (1978)
2. Donnie Darko (2001)
1. Trick R Treat (2007)
The series of short stories all taking place on Halloween and each entering into a different genre of horror, this really is one of my favorite Halloween based films and could easily be one of my favorite horror films.
Chris’s Top 5
It’s very difficult to narrow down a list of movies that fit my favorite time of year for movie viewing, but here goes…
5. The Conjuring (2013)
In fifth place is “The Conjuring”, one of my favorite horror films ever made. It reminded the world that not all modern day horror movies suck ass. And for that…we thank the makers! It’s definitely earned it’s spot in my top 5.
4. Halloween Franchise (1978-2009)
Screw picking just one of the Halloween movies, I pick them all! What’s Halloween without “Halloween”? Right? We all have to hear the classic Michael Myers theme song as he lurks around waiting to kill! I even enjoy the remakes as well.
3. Halloweentown (All 4)
I’m a 90’s kid and I’m not afraid to show it! No Halloween goes by without me watching all of the Halloweentown movies! I grew up with them and they are crucial to my enjoyment of the month of October. There’s nothing wrong with some family friendly Disney movies.
2. A Nightmare on Elm Street Franchise (1984-2010)
Including the remake there are 9 of these movies! WOW! And as you might have guessed, I love them all. I will say that not all them shine as bright as the others, but I still find entertainment this time of year in each of them.
1. Trick ‘r Treat (2007)
$10,000? $20,000? NOPE! No amount of money is going to keep me from watching this Halloween masterpiece each and every year. It is my all time favorite Halloween movie and I think everyone should watch it on Halloween night!
Chelsea’s Top 5
5. Sinister (2012)
4. House of 1000 Corpses (2003)
3. Night of the Demons (1988)
2. Halloween (1978)
1. Creepshow (1982)
Creepshow is an amazing piece of cinema, consisting of some short yet gruesome stories, it doesn’t hesitate to push the horror boundaries of its time, making for something that is purely chilling to the bone.
