What is Halloween without some scary fun? We have made a list of the best scary Halloween movies for you to enjoy.
1 – A Tale of Two Sisters
When it comes to crafting gory suspense that stretches the boundaries of horror, Korean filmmakers know just what they’re doing. Case in point: A Tale of Two Sisters. Often imitated, Ji-woon Kim’s creepy tale about a pair of siblings who leave a mental hospital and enter the house of the devil is one helluva head trip.
2 – The Exorcist
Spotting William Friedkin’s 1973 demonic-possession classic on a list of really scary movies is not a shocker. But unless you’re completely desensitized to a little girl hissing sacrilegious obscenities from the black hole in her rotting head, then you know it belongs on this list.
3 – Evil Dead 2
This movie is considered a classic by horror movie fans. If you’re looking for a horror movie that has both humor and gore then ‘Evil Dead 2’ is the way to go. Not so much a sequel to the original as it is a retelling of the original movie, nonetheless ‘Evil Dead 2’ is an absolute classic. Director Sam Raimi did an excellent job of mixing humor with gore. If there was ever a slapstick horror film, ‘Evil Dead 2’ fits the description. Also, Bruce Campbell as Ash Williams is perfectly cast and provides a slew of great one-liners.
4 – Paranormal Activity
Sure, the studios have drained this franchise for all its worth. But Oren Peli’s original script-less creation about a couple and their ghost is no cheap thrill. Think back to that first viewing and imagine Katie, possessed by a demon, slowly climbing that dark staircase, each step a resounding boom … boom … boom. Freaked out? Yeah, we thought so.
5 – Drag Me to Hell
He went for campy in The Evil Dead and succeeded admirably. This time director Sam Raimi goes to absurd and triumphs gleefully. Justin Moreover, Long and Alison Lohman star in Raimi’s scary comedy about a banker doing everything she can to break a hex put on her by an unhappy customer. And it’s money.
We hope that you enjoy these Halloween movies!
