Top Ten Tuesday| Top Movies To Get In The Halloween Spirit

Untitled design-9
This weeks Top Ten Tuesday topic hosted by Broke and Bookish is The Top Ten Movies to Get In The Halloween Spirit! I decided to go with movies because Halloween Movies are my absolute favorites! Especially Slasher Films! I also already did a Top Ten Books To Read For Halloween list (which should be updated due to the books I have recently read! So it is like a two in one this week! Also these movies are in no particular order and are a mix of scary, slasher and great kid movies! And I would also like to make it known that the original slasher movies (from the late 70s) are the best! I am obsessed with movies so there are so many more I wish I could add.

SLASHERS

Really any of the movies in this franchise! I love them all and Michael Meyers is my favorite Slasher! Every Halloween Season I make sure that I take a day to marathon all of these movies!

 

 

 

 

 

MV5BMjA0NDQ2MzMxMF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwODg5MTkzMjE@._V1_SX214_AL_ Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)

For as long as I can remember I have been obsessed with this movie and also had a huge issue with chainsaws in haunted houses and maizes when younger. I even own this movie on VHS! I do think the other adaptions of this movie are good too!

 

 

 

 

 

MV5BMTMxOTk4NjMzOV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwOTQ3NDAzMg@@._V1_SX214_AL_Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)

Someone killing you in your dreams /nightmares is scary shit. Put that together with the fact that Freddy looks creepy as shit.

Another slasher film I know. Jason is just as awesome as the other slashers. Creepy camp setting adds to the fact that there is a killer running around.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

HORROR

MV5BMTU4NzMyMjAyOV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTYwNjY0MzI5._V1_SY317_CR1,0,214,317_AL_Poltergeist (1982)

This is the first horror movie I remember ever watching and it scared the crap out of me. The second one is even worst. I have no idea why at the age of 8 my parents thought it would be okay to let me watch this.

 

 

 

 

 

MV5BMTI4OTU2NjY5OF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTYwOTQ2Mzg3._V1_SX214_AL_Dawn of the Dead (2004)

This is a great Zombie movie. If you want a good laugh though you should watch the 1970s version! Zombies are a must have for Halloween time.  Although 28 Days Later is another good one I believe this one is my favorite one!

 

 

 

 

 

MV5BMTM1MjAyMjIxMF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTYwNzI0MDg5._V1_SY317_CR0,0,214,317_AL_Darkness Falls (2003)

A scary killer tooth fairy….I think that is enough said.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Family/Child 

MV5BNTczNjA4NzczMV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMTkzMTQyMQ@@._V1_SX214_AL_Addams Family (1991)

This is a classic! I love the Addams Family. I have to say Wednesday is my role model she is just so fantastic. This family is so kooky and so awesome!

 

 

 

 

 

 

MV5BMTU4Njg1MDkxMl5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwNjk2MjAzMQ@@._V1_SY317_CR5,0,214,317_AL_Halloweentown (1998)

This is a solid staple to the Halloween season. I love all 4 of the Halloweentown movies and it also shows how awesome Disney Channel Original Movies use to be.

 

 

 

 

 

 

MV5BMTI3MDI2NDc3Ml5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwNDQ2MzQyMQ@@._V1_SY317_CR3,0,214,317_AL_Hocus Pocus (1993)

I have already watched this movie like 5 times this year. If you don’t watch this movie and/or don’t like it I don’t know if we can be friends. This movie is fun and has witches, talking cats and a zombie!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Some Honorable Mentions:

The Village (2004)

Scream (1996)

The Hills Have Eyes (2006)

Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)

Sweeney Todd (2007)

 

What are some of your favorite horror/ Halloween movies to get in the spirit for the holiday?

  1. The Halloween movies are my favorite movies of all time. I make sure to watch them all this week – I love AMC Fearfest! I also love all the Scream movies. Great list!

  2. Darkness Falls looks scary. I haven’t seen that film yet, but I now I guess I have to find me a copy. I also like 30 Days of Night! Imagine being in darkness for 30 days with vampires making a feast of the entire town?! *shivers*
