Witches, ghosts and monsters, oh my! With fall right around the corner, it’s time to start queuing up your all-time favorite Halloween movies to get into the spooky Oktoberfest spirit.
For a spooktacular Halloween season of scares, I recommend watching these fun movies. From family friendly flicks like Hocus Pocus and Halloweentown to chilling films like Hereditary and Paranormal Activity, there’s something for everyone.
If you ever spot someone wearing a Michael Myers mask on Halloween, assume they’re trick ‘r treating. Now if they happen to be following you around town with a wickedly sharp butcher knife in hand, assume your life is at stake and book a one-way ticket out of the country.
Why limit your Halloween spirit to only one night every 365 days when you can indulge 24/7 in Halloweentown. Just don’t fall for a guy named Kal. You may end up having to clean up his mess while nursing a broken heart.
To survive Halloween, all you have to do is be a good samaritan and refrain from landing yourself on Sam’s list by partaking in a particularly evil act. Otherwise you’ll be getting a special visit come October.
As one of the quintessential slasher horror movies, Friday the 13th is a must-watch during the Halloween season. However, if you have plans to work as a summer camp counselor in a woodsy area, I would recommend taking pointers from the counselors as what not to do when chased by a masked machete-wielding maniac.
If you ever find yourself stuck filming a documentary, don’t go on a long trek into the middle of nowhere to find the witch that inspired the infamous urban legend that has plagued your hometown. It’s not worth it.
When the Antichrist comes out to play, you better hightail it out of town. But if you want to be extra cautious, think about taking the next spacecraft to the moon. That devilish child has no sway in space.
Bloody trysts in the shower, a smattering of stuffed animal bodies covering the walls and a son playing pretend. Welcome to the Bates Motel. You can check in any time you’d like. But you can never leave. Just like the Hotel California.
Don’t go spelunking through uncharted cave systems. You may unearth a ravenous apex predator that has no qualms with the taste of human flesh. In other words, you’ll be a light snack to hold them over till the next group comes along…
