What should I watch?

Today is Halloween so that means I will be watching spooky movies in the background all day long as I work, which makes this pretty much exactly the same as every other day because every day is Halloween if you really want it to be. The real difference is that when Victor walks out of his office and says, “WHY DOES IT ALWAYS SOUND LIKE A MASSACRE IN HERE?” I can say, “Because it’s Halloween, you weirdo” instead of just reminding him that it’s not my fault that my office has no doors since it’s technically the dining room.

Today I’ll be watching some of my comfort favorites (is it weird to have bloody comfort favorites?) like Cabin in the Woods, Shawn of the Dead, Housebound, Grabbers, A Tale of Two Sisters and The Shining. I will also be rewatching Tammy and the Teenage T-Rex, a film where teenage Paul Walker gets his brain implanted in the body of an animatronic T-rex after he was attacked by a lion until cheerleader Denise Richards tries to save his brain so that she can make a Frankenstein? Also, the creepy guy from Children of the Corn is in it. It is so, so terrible.

But I still have many hours to fill so please tell me what else I absolutely must watch today. (Bonus points for creepy, supernatural, psychological horror, possession, dark comedy, folk horror.)

Read comments below or add one.

  1. Shaun of the Dead is one of my favorites!

    I recently saw Midsommar and that movie is absolutely terrifying. Hereditary too, with Toni Collette. I actually had to watch a few episodes of the Simpsons after that one before I could muster up the courage to go to bed (or even turn off the lights).

  2. Why, Plan 9 from Outer Space, of course. Aliens resurrecting the dead in a film that’s so bad, it’s good. A classic of terrible cinema, if you will.

  3. I’m digging La Llorona (on Shudder) right now. The Descent just about made me wet myself. For a change-ish of pace, This is Gwar is a hysterical documentary about the monster band. The Exorcist series is pretty great, if a bit weird at the end, but part 3 has *everyone’s* favorite sudden scare.

  4. I review a bunch of Halloween-ish movies that come out every year. This year, I thought that Deadstream on Shudder was pretty good. Though my favorite Halloween movie from 2022 was Grimcutty on Hulu.

  5. Fresh (I think it’s on Hulu). It’s the most original movie I’ve seen in a year. Elevated horror, some comedy and romance, and so so good.

  6. Wait Until Dark – most frightening psychological thriller ever.
    also – Deliverance
    Happy Halloween!

  7. Absolutely agree with the other comment about Train to Busan. Best zombie movie EVER. Seriously so good. Any of the Purge movies are also my favorites and The Conjuring scared me pretty good. I’m planning to watch Don’t Breathe tonight while handing out candy because I’ve heard it is good.
    I can also recommend a DO NOT watch and that’s the new Halloween Ends. Worst movie I’ve ever seen. I got bored and turned it off before it was over.

  8. Fresh! Elevated horror, with comedy and romance. And this may be a duplicate, sorry!

  9. Did you ever see “Dream Lover”? It’s super creepy in such a great way — at least to me! 🙂 Happy Halloween!

  10. Vincent Price movies are my comfort horror – Theater of Blood is my fave (a Shakespearean actor takes poetic revenge on the critics who denied him recognition).

  11. Watching American Psycho. The mind is scarier than fiction sometimes 🎃🎃🎃👻👻☺️💀💀

  12. I’m a sucker for a ghost story so Crimson Peak. And for straight scary try As Above, So Below

  13. Happy Halloween! My second favorite religious holiday after St. Patrick’s Day.

    I recently stumbled across the description of a movie called Crimson Peak with Jessica Chastain and Tom Hiddleston. Directed and written by Guillermo del Toro (who doesn’t love his terrifying work?). It’s getting added to my Halloween list this year because it sounds lovely and gothic and atmospheric.

    If you’re looking for a Podcast for background atmosphere, I highly recommend The Midnight Library.

  14. LOVED Cabin in the Woods. I agree with people mentioning the original Haunting (NOT the awful remake). It Follows is fun, The Others and The Ring, the original Carrie and maybe not Halloween movies but you can’t go wrong with Alien and Aliens. The first is creepy and the second is just packed with thrilling nonstop action.

  15. There are some amazing movies on Amazon Prime that we discovered during the pandemic. They are The Vast Of The Night, Super 8 and Slay Belles. Happy Halloween!

  16. House of the Devil, As Above So Below, and Scout’s Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse.

  17. American Psycho. A mind is a terrible thing to waste👻👻💀💀💀. Scary Stuff👻💀🎃

  18. Troll 2 and Manos, the Hand of Fate for campy. Beetlejuice and Ghostbusters for classic non-horror feel-good Halloween.

  19. We watched Barbarian last night and it was FANTASTIC! I was tense the whole time. It’s streaming on HBO Max.

    Orphan: First Kill was a lot of fun but you have to have seen the original (it spoils too much otherwise).

  20. Just watched Practical Magic. Now I’m on The Uninvited. I’m getting so much damn work done today!

  21. No bloody or scary (Tim Curry in fishnets is a bit frightening lol), but every Halloween I watch The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Classic!

  22. It seems like you’re into a bit of horror-comedy, so I’d recommend Little Evil, The Babysitter 1&2, The Final Girls, Vampires vs the Bronx, Tucker and Dale vs Evil, Freaky, Idle Hands, Day Shift, Little Monsters (2019), Freaks of Nature, Cooties, and My Best Friend’s Exorcism.
    Happy Halloween! xxx

  23. If you haven’t seen it already and like to watch things based on reality then watch 28 days haunted on netflix. It’s based on experiments done by Ed and Lorraine Warren.

  24. The Knights of Badassdom. It’s not actually a Halloween movie but there is a demon, lots of gore, and oh so much camp. Plus, can’t go wrong with nerds taking LARPing a little too seriously.

  25. The descent, alive, It follows, Things seen and heard, Insidious, The conjuring, Deliverance, Halloween (original), Men, Black phone, Little evil, The Host (korean), The Ring, As above so below, funny games (original), Hereditary, the taking of Deborah Logan, Get Out – We need a Halloween week!

  26. Dead & Breakfast! It’s such a wonderfully bloody comedy/horror/musical. I can’t recommend it enough!

  27. My favorite scary movie is the first Poltergeist. Oohhh or original don’t be afraid of the dark if you can find it. Scare me as a kid

  28. All of the above, plus campiness: “The Pit and the Pendulum” (Vincent Price), “House of Wax” (V.P. again), “The Beast Must Die!” (It’s like a choose-your-own-adventure movie), “Clue” (because who doesn’t love a classic murder-mystery with Tim Curry), “Ravenous” (because Robert Carlyle is amazing), and “Vacancy” (because Frank Whaley is amazing). Ooh, and “The Lost Boys,” because how else will you learn vampire rules?

  29. I remembered the last campy one! “The Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse.”

  30. not much of a horror fan, but I can say the *original* Wicker Man was a trip (not the bees one.)

  31. Because you watched The Cabin in the Woods and Shaun of the Dead:

    Tucker and Dale vs. Evil, Troll Hunter, The Wolf of Snow Hollow, and Werewolves Within

  32. I love the Hammer Studios horror films, but especially those with Christopher Lee as Dracula.

  33. You should check out my YouTube channel and watch my 3 most recent uploads where my husband and I explore 3 super haunted hotels in California. My channel is YouTube.com/MeantToBeLindseyB if you’re interested. 🙂

  34. I set a goal this month to watch one scary or Halloween-themed movie a month, so I’ll be checking replies for one to watch tonight. So far, I really liked The Babadook and His House.

  35. How about a Canadian senior film school project? Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter is a campy movie/musical about Jesus teaming up with luchador Santos to defeat vampires who are targeting lesbians. It’ll break your brain in the best way!

  36. Anna and the apocalypse (zombie Christmas high school musical), Wellington paranormal, what we do in the shadows, Los espookys

  37. Willy’s Wonderland, Tucker and Dale vs Evil, Army of Darkness, Lady in White are my faves.

  38. I assume you have Netflix, if so, you should check out the Guillermo del Toro anthology series Cabinet of Curiosities. Really good and creepy. Also the Korean films The Wailing and Train to Busan. Oh, and my favorites that my Mom & I would watch are the It’s Alive series. It’s Alive, It Lives Again, and It’s Alive III: Island of the Alive

  39. The Awakening (2012). The classic haunted house (school) story. I rewatch it once or twice a year.

  40. Rosemary’s Baby
    Angel Heart
    The Hunger
    The Wicker Man
    The Birds
    Skeleton Key

  41. Cabin the Woods is a solid movie. The elevator scene is genius. Barbarian has the WTF factor. Also it’s almost like 4 different horror stories in one.

  42. I had never even heard of “Tammy and the T-Rex”, but you had me at Paul Walker! Adding that to my list of things to watch, it looks terribly cheesy, so I know I will love it!

  43. Martyrs from 2008. It’s a French film full of horror, gore, and general fuckery.

  44. For supernatural thrills by Disney, The Watcher in the Woods from the ’80s (with Bette Davis and a young Kyle Richards – now better known as a Real Housewife of….)was my absolute fave movie as a kid – a kid’s movie but spooky as heck.

  45. Don’t forget the Evil Dead movies with Bruce “the Chin” Campbell… also just watched Werewolf by Night on Disney, campy and funny and just the right amount of goofy horror. “His name is Ted.” (Quote from WBN)

  46. What We Do in The Shadows film, hysterical “New Zealand mockumentary horror comedy” about modern-day vampire housemates written by Jermaine Clement and the fabulous Taika Waititi. Precursor to the delightful TV series of the same name.

  47. Bubba ho-tep!!! It’s campy and so bad it’s good. It has Elvis, mummies and nursing homes. Which we all know is the spooky trifecta haha.

  48. To this day I refuse to watch Fiddler on the Roof because of the graveyard scene. We had just buried my father and my mother has my sisters take me to that film. They had to carry 7 year old me out sobbing and traumatized.

    So there. There is my horror film.

  49. Train to Busan is terrifying. My favorite zombie movie. And the instant cult classic “Trick ‘r Treat” is a must-watch for Halloween spookytime!

  50. The 1980’s version of Disney’s “Watcher in the Woods.” Also the late nineties adaptation of Stephen Kings’ “Rose Red.”

  51. I might have a thing for Halloween type movies 😜

    Transylvania 65000 – town that has all the classic monsters but it’s in the ’80s.
    Young Frankenstein – Gene Wilder!!
    High spirits – fake haunted castle attraction become haunted.
    Once bitten
    Dracula: dead and loving it

    Freakshow Cakes- and Halloween Wars – competition of Halloween themed cakes. Not really scary but who doesn’t love cake??

    The great Halloween fright fight – competition of back yard haunted houses

    Garfield Halloween
    Great pumpkin Charlie Brown
    The Berenstain bears Halloween

    The Craft
    Withces of Eastwick
    Practical Magic
    Sleepy Hollow
    Little shop if horrors
    Sweeney Todd
    The Village

    Hocus Pocus
    Nightmare before Christmas
    My babysitter’s a vampire
    Monster House
    Corps Bride
    The ghost & Me. Chicken
    Mars Attacks
    Monster squad

    Pet cemetery
    The conjuring
    The ring
    Friday the 13th
    The Blob
    The Grudge
    The Exorcist
    The Omen
    The birds
    House of wax

  52. How about Tucker and Dale Versus Evil. Hilarious slasher movie. We love it! Also, The Witch is one of those disturbing psychological thrillers. We saw that one in the theater! Terrifying!

  53. The Serpent and the Rainbow. Voodoo zombies, snakes, blood, being buried alive…and Bill Pullman. It has all the good stuff.

  54. Oh my favorite vampires are Klaus, Elijah and Rebecca from The Originals series. Klaus is the ultimate anti-hero and Rebecca is a bad-ass. They’re such friendly fiends you want to have them over for dinner. But you’ll probably be the main course. And it would be so worth it!

  55. If you don’t mind a little cheesy, but still creepy, I still love Trilogy of Terror….

  56. The Blob…and anything with Vincent Price in it. BTW, if you ever make it to the Philly area in July, I HIGHLY recommend Blobfest. Yes, it’s a thing, and its very cool. It has you written all over it, Jenny. xo

  57. X the Unknown, scared the snot out of 5 year old me.
    The Tingler with Vincent Price.

  58. John Carpenter’s Prince of Darkness! My favorite horror film ever. It’s got Jameson Parker, Alice Cooper, and tachyons – how can you go wrong?

  59. What We Do In The Shadows…both the film and the tv show. For when you need a scary laugh.

  60. Happy Death Day and its sequel, Happy Death Day 2U. Kind of like Groundhog Day about a girl trying to find out who killed her. It is so charming and funny at times. The second movie picks up where the first left off. Really well done movies!

  61. Arsenic & old lace. Cary Grant marrys the girl next door on Halloween but something is amiss at his family home. Romcom & murder!

  62. ‘Warm Bodies’, it’s as good as ‘Sean of the Dead’, two of the best Zombie movies ever!

  63. Slasher/stalker scary- The Watcher (the 2022 movie, not the show)

    I also liked the new version of The Invisible Man

  64. The first one that actually ever scared me was The Blair Witch Project. The original one though…. The other two were just plain dumb.

  65. From Dusk till Dawn and the 1980 movie The Changeling with George C Scott. Based on a true story. (The Changeling, not From Dusk till Dawn. Tho who knows?)

  66. Watchers in the Woods and Child of Glass. Both late 70’s early 80’s Disney movies and both terrifying.

  67. Shaun of the Dead is great. But for a scarily bad movie, there’s Zombie Strippers! (exclamation point is actually in the title, haha)

  68. I can’t believe nobody has suggested An American Werewolf in London yet. One of my all-time favorite scary movies. And with some humor too.

  69. Just watched “Barbarian”! I rented it on Amazon, but I think it’s free now on Hulu?

    It’s terrifying. And just when you think you know what’s happening, you don’t. Several times!

  70. What Lies Beneath

    My daughter who loves scary and horror films was scared to death. I had to go and check out the bathroom with her every time she went in there for 2 days.

  71. Scariest movie I saw this year…the circle 2017 movie with Emma Watson and Tom hanks. Scary because we are almost there

  72. Barbarian (HBOMax) and Significant Other (Paramount+) are both EXCELLENT

  73. The classic and award winning 1965 “Hush, hush, Sweet Charlotte”, and “the Birds” scared me so bad as a child I never could watch a scary movie again.

  74. The Others, Woman in Black, Only Lovers Left Alive, Underworld series, Interview with the Vampire, Queen of the Damned, Dracula 2000, Crimson Peak, Lost Boys, the orginal IT miniseries, the Fright Night remake with David Tennant and Sofia Vergara’s cousin, The Ring, Exorcist and of course A Nightmare Before Christmas.

  75. I’m a few episodes into Del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities on Netflix and would definitely recommend it so far.

  76. Definitely second and third Cabinet of Curiosities. Also the biggest surprise of the last couple of years was the Argentinian movie Terrified, on Shudder.

  77. Sweeney Todd-,Demon Barber of Fleet Street. It’s got it all: catchy songs that get in your head, weird humor, unsuspecting cannibalism, and gallons of gore. Oh, also ALAN RICKMAN as the Villain. So, so good! (It’s good, like Priest!)

  78. I always binge watch Hammer Films movies, anything creepy with Vincent Price, Halloween, and yes, The Grudge is one of the scariest movies ever.

  79. Every year, for the past 5 or 6 (maybe 7 or 8? Who knows? Time has lost all meaning), I have done 31 Days of Horror, and posted what I was watching on my FB & IG.
    This year, it was silent horror.
    Silent films had a very different meaning, in the 19-teens and 1920s, and it was more of mental horrification, than what we consider horror.
    The horror of what we have become, or what we could become.
    Kind of appropriate, all things considered.

    The only exceptions to the early 20th century selections were:

    Day 26. Dracula: Pages from a Virgin’s Diary (2002)
    A ballet rendition of Bram Stoker’s “Dracula”, stylized as an Expressionistic silent film.

    And, today, Day 31. A (Science Fiction) Double Feature & a Short
    I am winding up my 31 Days of Horror 2022 with sound.¹
    Not just sound, but musicals.²
    These are the things that have shaped me.

    1.Alice Cooper: The Nightmare (1975)
    2. Danse Macabre (1922)
    3. Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975)

    ¹Yes, there is a silent one in there.
    ²The Short is also a musical.

    If you look hard enough, the you can find the ballet online.
    The Nightmare is only available on DVD, and 15 year old me would have been thrilled to know that 60something year old me could have this forever.
    And RHPS, it’s everywhere, all the time.

  80. If you haven’t watched “Haunting of Hill House” on Netflix, you need to! It’s awesome. I watch it every year. It’s creepy, scary and sad. But it’s brilliantly crafted. After you watch it, look for the articles that point out all of the “hidden” ghosts in the scenes. They are there, you don’t notice them, but subconsciously, it puts you on edge. And the camera/film work for the episode called “Two Storms,” I think it’s like 20 minutes of one single camera shot! No edits, no cuts. If they didn’t win an emmy for that one, they should have!

    Also “The Platform,” which is a Spanish film, and will make you rethink your own consumption. What do we need and what do we take? I kinda hated myself for weeks after that one.

    And of course, “Let the Right One In,” the original Swedish film, which turns the vampire trope on its head. They are apparently coming out with a mini-series. I will judge when I see it. The American version of the film, “Let Me In,” is also pretty decent, since they didn’t change much. The book is also excellent, as is his second novel, even scarier: “I am Behind You.”

    “Gerald’s Game” is also really scary, because it totally could happen, aside from the paranormal parts, but the scary stuff is the stuff that could happen in real life and that’s terrifying.

    “Bad Batch” is a brilliant film, period. There are so few words in the script, so the atmosphere becomes a character, and it showcases how wonderful actors can be without putting words in their mouths. Plus, the ending is so perfect. I was completely ambivalent about it. Is this what I wanted to happen, or not. It really speaks to the idea of what freedom is.

    And if you want pure camp/entertainment and chuckles, “Vampires vs. the Bronx,” “Day Shift,” “Little Monsters” (the Australian zombie one), “The Babysitter,” and of course, “Shaun of the Dead.”

    Last year, I watched all of the films listed in the Vulture’s Top 50 Horror Films on Netflix, in one month. I may have a problem… 😉

  81. Here’s my list!
    Shaun of the Dead
    The Addams Family
    Addams Family Values
    Ghostbusters – all of them
    The Shining
    Jennifer’s Body (an actually, very good movie)
    Skeleton Key
    Crimson Peak (not a very good movie, but fun to watch)
    28 Days Later
    Get Out
    Let the Right One In (subtitled)

  82. I don’t like to be scared, so I prefer my horror movies funny 😃 Therefore, I recommend What We Do in the Shadows and Studio 666 (although now that makes me sad since Taylor Hawkins died).

  83. Right now I’m watching a limited psychological horror/thriller series on Netflix called The Devil in Ohio. I recommend it. Also, have you seen the movie “Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?” If not, it’s a classic, you must see it. It was made in the 50s or 60s but it even by today’s standards it’s still a pretty disturbing film.

  84. The VelociPastor. “After losing his parents, a priest travels to China, where he inherits a mysterious ability that allows him to turn into a dinosaur. At first horrified by this new power, a hooker convinces him to use it to fight crime. And ninjas.”

    Really that just says it all. It is so bad that it wraps back around to super awesome

  85. Dracula A.D. 1972 (gloriously schlocky Hammer horror, on HBO), Umma (good ghost story with Sandra Oh, on Netflix), The Black Phone (Peacock), Barbarian (HBO), Herzog’s Nosferatu (Peacock), Deep Red (wacked-out giallo horror)

  86. Another vote for Nightmare Before Christmas. Not scary, but funny and the music is awesome (by Danny Elfman)

  87. Here is one you should NOT watch, Amish Witches: The True Story of Holmes County. I watched for about 20 minutes before I thought this would be a good time to wash out all my salt and pepper shakers, wait for them to thoroughly dry, then refill them.

  88. If you haven’t seen it yet, you should watch Tucker and Dale vs Evil. Bonus: it stars Alan Tudyk.

  89. I also have the tradition of watching The Rocky Horror Picture Show every Halloween. So I 2rd, or 3rd, that recommendation. I remember catching a midnight showing on TV when I was a teen, and it’s stuck. I am proud to say that I’ve passed down the tradition to my kids as well. 😁

  90. The Changeling (1980) with George C. Scott and Trish Van Devere. I grew up in a big house with an antique wheelchair very similar (though adult sized) to the one on the cover of the dvd at the top of the stairs or halfway down the hall between the top of the stairs to my room. Every year, the old movie theater in my town would show The Changeling at midnight on Halloween and I’d go in middle school and high school, and my dad thought it was funny to move that sucker around to freak me out.

    I second Wait Until Dark. Also, What We Do in the Shadows for goofy fun, though not exactly horror.

  91. Tucker and Dale vs. Evil! I agree with the others on this one! I also never seem to get tired of the original Candyman. I will also second The Changeling and will third Wait Until Dark. The Omen would be right up there, too.

  92. I’m late to the game, so you probably already have your play list set. But you’re 1-2 hours behind me (what time zone is San Antonio? Are you even in San Antonio? Maybe it’s my cousin who lives in San Antonio?).

    I lead up to Halloween with Vincent Price. He was my first horror love, got me hooked on them when I was 4-5 and there really were late (after the 11:00 news) movies and then the tv stations would sign off until the early morning farm report. The Raven is wonderful, meaning it’s goofy with rickety sets and terrible sfx. You haven’t lived until you’ve seen Peter Lorre as part man / part bird. Yes, The Raven stars Price, Lorre, and Boris Karloff.

    You can follow that with Arsenic and Ild Lace. Yes, it’s an old romcom, but there are sweet old aunts murdering lonely old men and a super creepy sadistic brother who’s had too many back alley plastic surgeries and now looks like Boris Karloff’s Frankenstein. More Peter Lorre.

    Pretty much anything Guillermo del Toro. Some of his Spanish movies are the best if you don’t mind subtitles or have a Spanish fluency you’ve never mentioned before. They don’t always make sense but damn they’re pretty.

    Then I recommend finishing with more silliness: Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters. Maybe half of the cast got the “this is a comedy, like almost slapstick, seriously you need to trowel on the cheesiness” memo, but clearly the studio and producers were serious. I keep hoping for a sequel.

    Happy Halloween!

  93. It’s a series, but if you haven’t seen it, Channel Zero’s first season has one of the creepiest episodes I’ve ever seen.

  94. It follows. Let the right one in. Midsommar. Fright Night both original and remake with Collin Farrell. Halloween. The first Friday the 13th. Scream. Abbott and Costello meet the wolf man.

  95. You mentioned psychological horror – but this requires full attention not a background film – Speak No Evil on Shudder. It’s a slow burn but has stayed with me long after I watched.

  96. Very late to the party, but….

    For aggressively campy, there’s Suck – Canadian low-budget take on the ancient question, how far would a small garage band go to become . . . Immortal!?! Fabulous cameos from Canadian comedy, classic rock, etc.

    And for a different angle completely (but still horror-comedy), there’s Dead Snow. I tried to describe it, and decided no one can better than Wikipedia and Netflix: “a 2009 Norwegian comedy horror film,” in which “A ski vacation turns horrific for a group of medical students, as they find themselves confronted by an unimaginable menace: Nazi zombies.”

    Also Dark Shadows – OG bw tv soap opera, or the 2010ish Tim Burton/Michelle Pfiefer, Johnny Depp, Eva Green flick, which is of course Something Completely Different. One is many hours of absolutely perfect background for spooky crafting, etc; the other is… A Tim Burton movie. *shrug*

    Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, if you can (or wish to) separate Spacey from his work.

    Shaun of the Dead’s sort-of companion piece Hot Fuzz.

    Also a fan of bingeing Grimm, the odd bastard child from this one night Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Law and Order have decided to forget.

    Big “hell yeahs!” on Crimson Peak, any iteration of the Addams, the Others, RHPS, Clue, and Nightmare/Corpse Bride. Happy Witching Hour(s)!!

  97. Anything by Roger Corman or William Castle, who did ‘The Tingler’ and secretly rigged the seats to deliver electrical tingles. Anything shown on Mystery Science Theater 3000.

  98. There was a party??

    Every scene in Twin Peaks with Bob in it.
    The Tingler with Vincent Price. You THINK it’s a cheesy old black & white, but that’s how they get you. That sucker is very, very scary.

  99. I love old school horror, so I spent yesterday watching Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee in Curse of Frankenstein, the Horror of Dracula, the Mummy, and Christopher Lee in the Devil Rides Out before my husband cried Uncle. I also love the old House of Wax and the 1960s remake.

  100. I know-late to the party as always…noone ever mentions that Disney Horror flick: WALL-E. But when I watched it, I was terrified of all the implications. As for traditional Horror, I loved both Bela Lugosi’s Dracula AND Christopher Lee’s version of Dracula. (Christopher Lee was really hot.) But Creepiest, most terrifying EVER movie is Nosferatu. A silent movie.

  101. Every year I say I’ll watch scary stuff all through October; it never quite happens ( my guy’s not a big horror fan, so I’d be watching alone— he did watch both Hocus Pocus movies with me, tho’!) Thanks to all the posts, for giving me extra choices to check out!
    Too late for your Halloween list, but any time is potential scary time, I say. Didn’t see these listed yet:
    The Little Girl Who Lives Down the Lane—
    Spooky tale I loved as a teen. Atmospheric (mostly) psychological horror with a young Jodie Foster & a creepy Martin Sheen.

    Rabid (the 1977 original—just discovered they recently remade it!)—
    Watch for a non-XXX performance from Marilyn Chambers & the camp of a low budget scare film.

    Love Death & Robots on Netflix—
    Animation! Of every different kind! Sometimes cute and funny, sometimes gory and disturbing, many a combination of both!

  102. Absolutely watch “Tucker and Dale vs Evil,” “Slither” with Nathan Fillian, “Creep” is so icky!; Two series–“Santa Clarita Diet” and “Resident Alien”; also “Jekyll” a British series from a few years ago. “Moon”,,,I love them all

  103. I know Halloween is *over* but I require a cooling down period so I am here to also recommend Canadian touring band vampire movie, Vampires Suck, a really good and funny movie about addiction and being in a van with too many people. Let the Wrong One In is an Irish movie also about vampires and addiction and I laughed so hard I peed a little! Aw yis, let me meditate on the grief of cutting off a loved one as they descend into a personal hell with a little wacky slapstick! No, for real, that’s actually what I want.

  104. The BBC miniseries “Gormenghast,” which is based on the Gormenghast series of novels (Gothic fantasy) is worth a watch if you haven’t seen it. I saw it when it aired on PBS in the early 2000s, and I still remember how dark and eerie it was.

  105. I’m too late for Halloween, but I love Undead (2003). It’s a hilarious zombie flick. There’s a scene involving a flip and spurs that cracks me up just thinking about it!

  106. I was browsing Amazon’s prime books, and found “I choose darkness” I instantly clicked read now, but I’m wondering why this is the first I’m hearing about it? Did I miss something?

  107. Hush, Hush Sweet Charlotte in B&W, with Agnes Moorhead and Olivia deHavilland and other big names in 1964. Creepy, Southern Gothic, very unsettling. A classic of the Era

  108. Not sure about what to watch, but I would lose my mind if you checked out our podcast, My Skeptical Sister. It’s a paranormal comedy pod. I think you would really like episode 45. Kilo and 8 Ball

  109. Altered States

    Not really horror. More of a psychedelic mind altering experiment.
    Very campy movie from 1980.

  110. Also late to the party and it is recommended above: Midsommer did my head in. Absolutely spectacular folk horror. Best movie I’ve seen in a while.
