Halloween is upon us, and that means it’s time to curl up on the couch with some popcorn, ice cream, and stack of scary movies. We know that the film that started it all was, Halloween. But, now that you’re older, you might find yourself looking for something more terrifying than this 1978 classic—something that may actually give you nightmares. With help from these scary movie recommendations, you’ll have plenty of options to choose from this Halloween season, besides your old VHS of Halloween!
What are the best scary movies to watch on Halloween? This is a pretty debatable topic, but we’re going to throw our witches hat in the ring. So let’s get right to it and dish out our thoughts on the topic. Besides what could be more fun than watching scary movies and eating candy when it’s dark outside, on Halloween? Here are our suggestions for the best movies to watch this Halloween, that are guaranteed to put chills down your spine. First off, is Paranormal activity that came out in 2007. Its re-watchability is low, but that first viewing will make you a believer in spirits and demons. Next on the list is The Descent. Holy smokes is this film terrifying. Prepare yourself for a monster movie that shovels on claustrophobia at every turn. Last on the, “I don’t want to sleep tonight”, list are both of the movies titled, The Thing. Both the original 1982 and 2011 versions have a lot to offer. Bring an extra blanket to the couch though, because these scary movies take place in frozen tundra void of hope, and full of screams.
It’s that time of year again, and scary movies are on all the streaming services. Here are some good tips for watching scary movies. Once you pick out all the scary movies worth watching, you may want to have a game plan on how to survive all the terror. We suggest you watch scary movies in the day-time, or at least with the light on. Find a friend that’s a glutton for punishment, like you. This way you’ll be racked with fear, but hey, at least you have some company. Last a final tip, forget the last two suggestions. It’s just a story, you’ll be fine.
Watching scary movies on Halloween is all fine and great, but let’s not forget about some of the other, must do, activates before you settle into the couch for the night. Which begs the question, what are some good Halloween party ideas, besides watching movies? At the tippy top of list, no surprise here, it’s pumpkin carving. Not far off of the Jack-O-Lantern’s heels is going to visit a haunted house or corn field. Number three, trick or treating. You may have thought that last one deserved to be higher up on the list, but given that it’s for the younger audience we thought it deserved to get bumped. We’re adults here, we can buy our own candy. Well, what do you think, are you ready for Halloween. We sure are!
