It's that time of year again--Halloween. Where you purposely read scary books and watch scary films in the theater or on DVD.
I'm going to post here some films that I know of. If anyone else has some I don't have posted, please do leave the names in the comments. This way, others can go out and rent or buy them to watch on Halloween or up to that day.
Trick R Treat (just came out on DVD--I bought it and enjoyed it)
The Haunting (1963--forget the remake, this one is like the book, The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson)
John Carpenter's The Thing
The Wolfman (the remake is coming to theaters so, so watch the original from the 1940s)
The Ghost and Mr. Chicken (who says we can't laugh and be scared?)
Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein
Frankenstein (1930) and Bride of Frankenstein (1931)
Dracula (1931-Bela Lugosi-my fave)
30 Days of Night
Lady in White
American Werewolf in London (there's the sequel, American Werewolf in Paris--okay, but not up to snuff like the first one)
The Howling and The Howling II (forget the rest of the sequels-yuck!)
Ginger Snaps and Ginger Snaps II
Cat People (both the 1940s one and the 80s one)
Shaun of the Dead (since ZombieLand is out-humor/horror about zombies, try the Brit humor one)
Fright Night and Fright Night II
Nightmare Before Christmas (good to view for Christmas, too)
Let the Right One In
Moon of the Wolf
The Mad Monster
It (a mini series, but hey!)
Big bad Wolf
Werewolf of London
The Mummy (Boris Karloff--30s)
The Mummy and The Mummy Returns (Brandon Frazier--more adventure than horror, but fun)
Van Helsing (not scary, but fun)
Blood and Chocolate
Mad Monster Party
I know there's more, but this will be it for me. Now for those others with suggestions, leave them in the comments.
And have a frightening Halloween!
