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.
♠ Halloween (1978)
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!
♠ 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!
♠ 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.
♠ Friday The 13th (1980)
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.
♠ 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.
♠ 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!
♠ Darkness Falls (2003)
A scary killer tooth fairy….I think that is enough said.
♠ 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!
♠ 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.
♠ 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?
