1968 – Rosemary’s Baby 1968
This one is an all-time classic and the story of a young family moving into a new apartment. The wife gets pregnant, but because of the neighbors and the mysterious environment, her anxiety about the baby’s safety takes over her mind and everything turns into a catastrophe of epic proportions. Launched in 1968, Rosemary’s Baby is still a great movie to watch around Halloween!
1976 – The Omen
Starring Gregory Peck, Lee Remick and Harvey Stephens, The Omen is the story of an American ambassador surrounded by death.
After long searches, the ambassador gets the idea that the son he adopted could be at fault. The question remains: is this child the anti-Christ or is he just imagining things? Although the release date was 1976, this movie is a classic and guarantees to keep you in suspense long after the credits come on!
1990 – Night of the Living Dead
If zombies are your favorite thing about Halloween, then you just cannot miss this movie. The action centers on a group of people hiding in a barn from the mysterious and totally gross zombies! But a few questions come to mind: why now, how and why here?
Fighting the zombies versus hiding are the two options, but he’s going to make it till the end…alive?
1991 – Silence of the Lambs
Doctor Hannibal Lector is serving time in prison for… cannibalism and murder, but his help is needed when the FBI is dealing with a serial killer set to create a suite out of young women’s skins! A young female agent is asked to solve the mystery with the help of Lector, but this is no easy task, as she is about to find out!
If you like Hannibal a lot, you can also look for the TV series. Just make sure to eat something light before pressing play.
1991 – The Addams Family
The most famous or should I say infamous family, especially when it comes to Halloween is The Addams. One day, a con artist shows up at their door claiming to be their estranged uncle Fester, which puts the whole family into a state of nervousness. Although not as scary as the other movies on this list, The Addams Family is a Halloween classic and a great source for Halloween costumes, so don’t miss it!
Prepare yourself for a great couple of hours, if you count the credits! The story surrounds Jack Skellington, the king of Halloween Town and of all things scary. It appears that one day, Jack discovers Christmas Town, but has a little bit of trouble understanding the concept, starting from the abundance of color to what really makes Christmas so…Christmassy: the joy, the presents etc.
In case you’ve missed it before, now would be a great time to watch this great movie!
1996 – Scream
Yes, there is a lot of screaming involved in this movie, but if that’s what you’re into, who are we to judge? The action centers on Sydney, a young woman, who is struggling to deal with her mother’s murder, but it seems that her entourage is obsessed with deaths and murders. Plus, they are all stalked by a murderer willing to make their lives a living hell, if not kill them all. See who make it in one piece and who gets murdered!
1999 – Sleepy Hollow
The next movie comes from Tim Burton and stars Christina Ricci and Johnny Depp, who plays a constable sent from New York to the little village of Sleepy Hollow, where a mysterious Headless Horseman is responsible for many deaths. Although there are many adaptations of this movie, including a TV series, this version seems to be everyone’s favorite! And the good news is that you can watch it on Netflix around Halloween!
2000 – American Psycho
This is a classic story of a two-faced kind of person. A wealthy and successful New York banker is trying to hide his true, murderous side from his co-workers while doing his job. But his mental problems and horrific fantasies only grow bigger every day, leading to a big number of murders. 15 years after the release date, American Psycho is still a great movie to watch on Halloween and Christian Bale’s performance is truly outstanding!
2013 – Carrie
From the amazing Stephen King comes a great story: Carrie White is a shy high school girl who is dealing with bullies. Fortunately, she has her religious mother to shelter her, but things go sideways on prom night, when the bullies push Carrie to the limit and the shy girl releases kinetic terror over the entire area.
If you’ve seen the old version of this movie, you may want to try a 2013 remake starring Chloe Grace Moretz, Julianne Moore and Gabriella Wilde.
