This is not ten horror (or horror themed) films that I love in order, it's just ten films I recommend to watch for Halloween this year from my own collection. You can be certain I'll watch several (if not all) of these on in the build up to Halloween and one for sure on Halloween. I'm not expecting everyone or even anyone to agree with my list but the mood I'm in right now these will be the ones I will watch this October. 10. The Amityville Horror (2005) I know opinion on this one is mixed but I loved it and felt it was a big improvement over the original which I always felt was rather dull. 9. Halloween III: Season of the Witch The one without Michael Myers indeed but possibly the one that carries the Halloween holiday spirit like no other in the series. 8. Fright Night (1985) One of my all-time favourite movies, this is the one I picked that's both scary and fun. 7. Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives The Friday that has a more gothic feel than any of the others, hence why I think it suits the Halloween feel that bit more. 6. Evil Dead II: Dead By Dawn My favourite of the series, it brilliantly balances both horror and humour, whereas the two either side were pure horror and pure comedy in my opinion. 5. A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) How can you not pick the true classic of this series, the first one is the only one that genuinely scary. Robert. Englund whilst still funny at times came off truly menacing here and I'm not sure he achieved that again in the series. 4. Scream As usual with any franchise the first one is the best and this is definitely the case where Scream is concerned. It's a beautiful mish mash of cliches, rip offs etc and the opening with Drew Barrymore is one of Horrors greatest openings to a movie. 3. Hocus Pocus You know you want a fun horror film that you can happily sit and watch with the family. Well this is it, it's such a great film to watch especially in October. Infact. I might make this my daytime Halloween film. 2. Trick 'r Treat The one that out does Halloween III in truly capturing the feel for the holiday. I'm not sure there's a more perfect film to watch on Halloween to be honest. It gets the feel spot on and the stories are so cool and enjoyable. A rare modern film that has become an instant classic. 1. Halloween (1978) The greatest horror film of all time in my opinion and a perfect film to watch on Halloween or even in the build up to it. I was going to go for the sequel but I think this year I'll watch the original again. Music and atmosphere put this above the rest, John Carpenter at his best.
