Movies for Halloween

What is the point of Halloween if you don't watch this? I think I have seen this almost every year on Halloween since I was a little girl. 

Another great classic. Seriously I think this is such a great movie for Halloween. It did however scare the crap out of me. For quite a few years I was convinced E.T. was hiding in my closet. That and I thought I saw Michael Jackson at a local gas station, but we will save that story for another post.

So I thought, hey, wouldn't it be fun to put some of the scarier movies I have seen in a post? Then I thought, hey, why not give you the trailers to watch. That way if you are to chicken, bock, bock, bock, bock,  to watch the scary movies that I have recommended, at least you can watch a snippet of them. Trust me they are way scarier than the run on sentences I just wrote. 

I know you might think, why didn't she add this movie? Or why didn't she add that movie? I only added movies that I have actually seen. I am very aware of other movies that might be even more frightening than the ones I have chosen. I didn't think it would be proper to add those that I haven't been frightened by. Some are not Halloween movies at all, but all of them have scared me. Some I will never watch again. 

So heres to a very Spookable Halloween. I would love to know what you think about the movies I have suggested. Feel free to leave comments, and suggestions of movies you think I might need to see for a good scream.

Happy Halloween!

*I did forget to add Silence of the Lamb, and The Orphanage to the list below.


P.S. The Exorcist trailer I had a lot of trouble with. I don't know how it loaded twice, at the same exact moment in time. It kind of freaks me out, and yes it is one movie I will never watch again.

oh my... i am having trouble even watching the trailers! i do NOT like to be scared. the only movies you listed that i have even seen are the old hitchcock movies (more suspenseful scary that outright terrifying, so i can handle those) and silence of the lambs... which was a long time ago but i am not sure i could make it through any of those. i'd be afraid of the dark for WEEKS! i'll have to stick to the great pumpkin..... (i am definitely a... BOK, BOK, chicken!!!!) happy halloween!

Summer- I DO like to be scared- no chicken here! I do see I Am Legend in the theater, though, and almost had to leave! It was SCARY! I have not seen The Abandoned yet. I think I'll rent it tonight! I do want to see The Strangers. Have you seen that one yet? I have never seen The Exorcist as that type of move is just too close to the truth for me... shudder. Happy Halloween! Lori

The Strangers was very thrilling. I didn't find it that scary, but I think it's because a friend had talked it up so much. It's very good though.

Happy Halloween! I love The Great Pumpkin...have not seen that one in years.

I thought Silence of the Lambs was very creepy...I had nightmares when I first saw it.

Summer- Thank you for your sweet comment. It does make me feel much better to know that God is in charge and that we need to trust Him.

The Strangers freaked me out!! We watched it on Halloween I'll have to rent The Orphanage next. Did you like that one? Have you seen The Ring? Lori
