Movies for a Halloween Night In

Do you not have any plans this weekend, or on actual Halloween? Why not have a night in in the dark watching some creepy movies? Make the scene even more horrific and light some candles to give that eerie atmosphere. Too chicken? I don’t blame you, I would be too. I’m scared of the dark enough as it is, and horror movies aren’t my cup of tea.

But because it’s Halloween why not roll with it?

As if I could create this post without having the Halloween films in it. Yep, they’re slow. Yep, they’re totally unrealistic. Yep, he literally survives every single tragedy thrown his way. Do I love them? Yep! Actually, a phobia of mine from when I’m little kind of comes from him, I don’t like masks and I don’t like my curtains being wide open because I can visualise somebody actually standing outside staring at me. I’ve saw the trailer for the new Halloween coming to the cinema soon, so no doubt I will need to go and see that too! 

I think I should hang my head in shame that I’ve never actually saw IT, the old one and the new one. I’ve heard great things about the old one, but not so many good things about the new one, but Halloween wouldn’t be Halloween without some type of creepy clown after you.

The Conjuring
One of the creepiest films I’ve ever watched. A film set in the olden days, about an old abandoned house you just know something bad is about to happen. The thought of this being an actual scenario in real life makes me feel a little bit sick in my stomach. My mega macho boyfriend also begged me to turn this film off before we even got half way through. The Conjuring is a perfect film to give you the chills.

The Nightmare Before Christmas
Not into horror movies? For an easy watch I would always recommend watching The Nightmare Before Christmas, I’ve actually not watched it in about three years, if not longer. Now that I’ve brought it up I’ve got that little tingle inside of me that is begging to watch it. Is it a Halloween movie? Is it a Christmas movie? Who really knows, but all I do know is that there’s that song…. “This Is Halloween” so my guesses would suggest it’s a Halloween film.

Hocus Pocus
Guilty of watching this movie in the middle of September, but, I couldn’t say no though as it was already on the TV so it would have been rude not to watch it. A firm favourite of mine from being really little, if only all witches were as sassy and likeable. Plus the talking cat… adorable!   

What movies would you suggest to watch on Halloween?
