October Scare-fest

I absolutely love the month of October. Not only is the weather beginning to change around here, but it is that great time of year where I happily indulge in all things scary. I adore scary movies so I thought I would share a list of the 31 movies I intend to watch this month. Hopefully I will get to them all. I'm not really a classic scary movie lover. I tend to like the more modern and gory straight-forward stuff than the psychological ones.

  1. Dawn of the Dead
  2. Constantine
  3. The Hills Have Eyes
  4. Blade
  5. Saw
  6. Evil Dead II
  7. Army of Darkness
  8. House of 1000 Corpses
  9. The Devils' Rejects
  10. Silent Hill
  11. 28 Days Later
  12. 28 Weeks Later
  13. Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning
  14. Cabin Fever
  15. Freddy vs Jason
  16. Cloverfield
  17. Halloween (2007 Rob Zombie remake)
  18. Hocus Pocus (my favorite Halloween movie)
  19. Corpse Bride
  20. Doom
  21. Vacancy
  22. Shaun of the Dead
  23. Scream 4
  24. 30 Days of Night
  25. Let Me In
  26. Quarantine
  27. Resident Evil
  28. Young Frankenstein
  29. Rocky Horror Picture Show
  30. Jennifer's Body
  31. Hostel
Zombies FTW! So do you have a favorite scary or Halloween themed movie you like to watch this time of year? Let me know in the comments!


  1. Interesting! In fact, I don't think I've watched -any- of your picks: I'm not particularly into horror movies, I have to admit. Read some interestingly zombie-ish fiction recently, though. (Outpost)

  2. Aww, I love Hocus Pocus!

    I really like Van Helsing and the Underworld movies. And though Practical Magic isn't really Halloween-oriented (at least not until the very end) and it's more a love story than a frightfest, I always make a point of adding it to my October to-watch-list.

    Annnnd The Craft. haha

  3. I have a lot of my favorite Teen Scream movies (including Scream 1-3 and The Craft) but they are on VHS and I don't even have a VCR anymore, hah!

  4. Hmmmm I'm not sure about Halloween themed movies but I tend to stay away from movies about ghosts. They freak me out big time. I think if you want to be super scared, try White Noise....shudders.

  5. Nice! The 28 movies are really good, and hostel freaked me out so much that I would NEVER go to a hostel somewhere in eastern Europe, or any hostel for that matter! Another movie that freaked me out a lot was Eden Lake.
    The hills have eyes was one of the worst movies I ever saw... :(

    Are you going to put up reviews as well? Have fun watching!

  6. Thanks for the recommendations! I will check out Eden Lake, Selina. I don't think I would do well writing reviews on movies, plus I've seen most of these MANY times, so it is probably biased.


I really love getting comments from you guys so take the time and show some love.
