This is one of my favorite scary movies on Netflix this Halloween season. A family begin experiencing strange occurrences around their house- and no one in town will believe them. Who is that shadowy figure hovering over the bed..? Well here’s a hint- it’s not a ghost. Alien scary movies are the best. I totally recommend giving this one a shot.
This movie is super creepy. Really creepy. An Alzheimer patient is filmed as a documentary… but throughout the filming, those around her realize she’s suffering from much more than Alzheimer’s. A great scary movie!
A classic by now, The Sixth Sense is a great scary movie for the halloween season. It’s hard to imagine anyone else playing the stars of the film, as played by Haley Joel Osment and Bruce Willis. Too good.
Stake Land is a phenomenal flick, and definitely something of a hidden gem. Not your average vampire apocalypse movie, the plot is based around Vampire hunter Mister who trains his young newfound friend Martin to fight with him as they travel to the New Eden. The film is dark- filled with sadness, pain, misery, but also, a huge amount of hope. It’s written and acted with immense heart, and was very original, in my opinion. Superb acting. This is one not to miss.
I really enjoyed this movie. It’s a bit different than other horror movies I’ve seen, in that instead of the main protagonists being ‘haunted’ by ghosts, they ARE the ghosts. The young teen girl who plays the main character does a swell job in this role as well. Haunter was one I definitely would recommend if you’re a fan of movies like The Sixth Sense or The Others. The plot twist is well crafted and unique enough to call this quite an original supernatural horror film.
Of course- The Addams Family is a halloween classic, and the third movie on our list this year starring the great Christina Ricci. The 90’s movie, based on the original old school TV show of the same name, is perfect for the season.
I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this movie. It’s original at least and while it is a bit slow moving, it’s different. Set in beautiful, dark scenery of Italy, the story revolves around a girl named Jenny who is visiting her estranged father. She begins hearing strange things when she starts reading near a lake her father is studying archaeology at. A creepy idea.
Johnny Depp and Christina Ricci star in this late nineties version of Sleep Hollow, the classic story of Ichabod Crane and the headless horsemen. The scenes and clothing are awesome throughout this movie… being that it’s directed by Tim Burton, this isn’t too surprising. I can dig.
This movie, sort of like Shrooms, is a sort of farce of the horror genre. It’s hilarious! In short: two good ol’ boy types are out at in the woods. When a group of teenagers encounter them, they think they’re murderers. Hilarity (and a lot of gore) ensue. I would totally recommend this one.
I have to say: I love this movie. It’s scary as hell, and it’s based on a true story, which makes it even scarier. Based on the story of Richard Kuklinski, a hired hitman said to have killed 100-250 people (give or take- he was convicted of 5 murders). Winona Ryder stars as his unknowing wife. This film left me shivering.
Another classic- this movie was one I grew up watching every year in school for halloween. Claymation from Tim Burton- this one’s great for kids & adults alike.
Who doesn’t love a good Monster flick? Well, I for one love them. This movie, though not very well known at all, is great. End of the world flicks are always good in my book too.
Christina Ricci as Lizzie Borden? Yes please. Is it a fantastic movie? It’s entertaining- I thought this movie would be completely stupid. But surprisingly it wasn’t as bad as I thought. I love Christina Ricci so figured, what the hell, might as well give it a shot. It takes a LOT of liberties with the actual story of Lizzie Borden, obviously, but that’s to be expected I guess. Lizzie Borden is famously known for being accused of murdering her father and stepmother in the late 1800’s with an axe. This movie obviously is pushing the extremes but I enjoyed it What’s really strange? Lizzie was acquitted of the murders, thus the murders really do remain a mystery.
Vampire movies. It’s easy to see that this movie was directed by the same guy who directed Interview With A Vampire… the scene vibes feel very similar.
Another movie about a possessed old lady. Cool in my book. I love the black magic style-esque movies. I have to say- I liked The Taking of Deborah Logan more than this one though.
I was skeptical about this movie for sure. I was pleasantly surprised though, I gotta say. It’s not a great movie but it’s decent. A group of college kids go on an international trip to trip mushrooms and calamity ensues. There’s a bit of comedy, personality, and a few twists. It’s pretty violent!
This scary movie list wouldn’t be complete without a serial killer movie. John Cusack stars as a cop totally obsessed with finding a serial killer. His partner is Deb from Dexter, which is awesome! Anyway. Good movie. Let me know your thoughts on the ending.. I’m still trying to decide what I think.
Another movie from the creator of The Sixth Sense, this one, The Village, wasn’t as well accepted but I still enjoyed it nonetheless. Set in an isolated village (shocking, right), it’s a creepy suspenseful flick. The cast chalked full of celebs helps pull this one off.
Nicole Kidman plays an overprotective mother of two kids in this darkly filmed movie. Her husband away at war, she hires an old couple to come help with the house upkeep. Needless to say, creepiness ensues. Seriously, what kind of kids are allergic to day light?
Another classic. Christian Bale stars as a straight laced suit, who doubles as a serial killer in his spare time. The staircase scene… eek. That’s all i can say. Also, I have never listened to Huey Lewis and the News the same way since seeing this movie.
Love the plot twist in this movie; it’s great. At first, like many horror movies, may seem a bit cheesy but hey- all in all? I’d say pretty good.
Eerily silent gaps throughout the move add to the suspense. AH! This one I really dig. It’s like one long unfolding mystery with a crazy plot twist at the end. I can dig.
