Halloween Guide and Ideas


What better time to watch some really great scary films than the whole month of October? We like to sit the family down together from October 1st to Halloween and watch at least one good film a night. Here, you'll find our top 13 favorite films to watch. Click on the cover picture  or title to purchase!

Halloween (1979)
Low-budget, now-classic slasher film about a masked murderer stalking sexually indulgent teenagers. A huge critical and popular smash, it still provides enough chills, suspense, and blood to please today's genre fans.
Starring: Donald Pleasence, Jamie Lee Curtis
Director: John Carpenter
Rating: R
Halloween II (1981)
Sequel to the king of slasher films, it's not that bad and it fills you in on why Michael has such a thing for Laurie Strode. This film picks up in the exact spot that the first one ended so you haven't missed a thing! A bit more gore for the sake of gore but not bad. Great set of movies for a mini-marathon!
Starring: Donald Pleasence, Jamie Lee Curtis
Director: Rick Rosenthal
Rating: R

Trick 'r Treat (2009)
Fantastic new horror film, direct to DVD, by Michael Dougherty.
The stories revolve around little Sam, a demonic trick 'r treater who shows up at the scene of each murder, he's the character of the lead story. Four other tales of terror are wrapped around to give you a big thrill!
Starring: Anna Paqiun, Brian Cox
Director: Michael Dougherty
Rating: R

The Nightmare Before Christmas (2-Disc Collector's Edition + Digital Copy)
Tim Burton's innovative stop-motion animated musical about Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King, who becomes enthralled by Christmas. He's the head of Halloweentown, so this causes some problems. Great for young and old!
Starring: Danny Elfman, Chris Sarandon, Catherine O'Hara
Director: Henry Selick
Rating: PG
Hocus Pocus (1993)
A very fun 1993 ghoulish, campy comedy about witches appearing in present-day America during Halloween. The Sanderson sisters come back to avenge being hanged in 1663. Two teens and a little sister have to stop them from ruining the town of Salem, Mass. Beautiful scenery and sets!
Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy
Director: Kenny Ortega
Rating: PG
Peanuts Holiday Collection (It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown / A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving / A Charlie Brown Christmas) (Deluxe Edition) (1966)
How can you get into the Halloween spirit without watching this?? It's a definite classic for young and old. Linus is waiting for the Great Pumpkin while those around him trick or treat. Will he be rewarded for his vigilance?
Starring: Charlie Brown, Linus, Lucy, Snoopy

Runtime: 25 minutes
Rating: G
The Haunted History of Halloween (History Channel) (A&E DVD Archives)
This is a must-have for any Halloween fanatic. Host Harry Smith leads this 3,000 year tour through the history of the quintessentially pagan holiday which has survived to become one of America's most popular holiday. For centuries this night has celebrated mystery and chaos, a time between summer and winter, and a New Year. On October 31 we are actually carrying on a tradition that goes back thousands of years to the Celtic tribes of northern Europe.
The Crow (Miramax/Dimension Collector's Series) (1994)
A man murdered by the vermin who rape and kill his fiancé comes back from the dead to avenge his lady love one year after the murders. Great cinematography, dark storyline and yet it's a love story.
Starring: Bradon Lee, Ernie Hudson, Sofia Shinas
Director: Alex Proyas
Rated: R

The Evil Dead (1981)
This is one movie that is sure to send chills down your spine in between the laughs. It's a very dark comedy with plenty of over the top gore and a great history to the film. Bruce Campbell at his first and finest!
Starring: Bruce Campbell, Ellen Sandweiss, Richard DiManincore
Director: Sam Rami
Rating: R

The Exorcist (The Version You've Never Seen) (1973)
This film still creeps me right out, even after all these years! A young girl is possessed by a demon that just doesn't want to leave. With the demon's voice being done by older actress, Mercedes McCambridge, it gives it a very other worldly effect.
Starring: Linda Blair, Ellen Burstyn
Director: William Friedkin
Rating: R
Re-Animator (1985)
This is, by far, the grossest movie that I have ever seen so if you are in the mood for tons o' gore, take a look. From a story by H.P. Lovecraft, Dr. West wants to play God and bring dead things back to life. Problems ensue.
Starring: Jeffery Combs, Bruce Abbott, Barbara Crampton
Director: Stuart Gordon
Rated: R
Phantasm (1979)
This is a very creepy, low budget film that will give you chills all night long! A teenage boy and his brother investigate strange goings on at Morningside Cemetery. Along with their friend, Reggie, they find the Tall Man, flying spheres, midgets in monks robes and a whole other world inside the mausoleum.
Starring: A. Michael Baldwin, Reggie Banister, Angus Scrimm
Director: Don Cascarelli
Rating: R
