The Best Movies To Watch On Halloween Night
A few slashers that will give your family and friends a very good scare…
Ok ok. So you are the horror expert so tonight, Halloween is your moment to prove that you know your stuff. Fear not dear reader. Old uncle Luis is here to help you with the best of the best (no, not the cruddy Martial Arts flick)…
The greatest horror movie ever? Yes, most definitely. Halloween has the lot and if you haven’t already seen it, well I envy you…
Halloween H20 1998
By far the best of the Halloween sequels, Steve Miner – the director of the classic below – takes the reins in a very sharp and good entry. Unfairly labelled as a bad choice, you will be fairly surprised if you give it a shot
Of the many Killer in the woods films released during the eighties, this is one of the greatest. Although not particularly gory, it does provide chills and suspense.
Not set on Halloween as many that I list won’t be, but boy, this one’s so scary that even Dracula won’t watch it.
Having trouble convincing your audience to watch a slasher film? Ok cool, recommend this. This ‘serial killer’ film has gore, a masked killer and a really good twist. It steers so close to being a slasher that well, between me and you, it probably is one. If anyone complains, say hey it’s like Se7en. Everyone loves Se7en…
Fantastic giallo with some of the most stylish scenes that the world has ever witnessed.
Halloween Camp 2003
The title makes little sense, because it is not set on Halloween at all. Still a lot of fun though, so I recommend that you give it a shot.
This one should go down well if you are hosting a Halloween party. The scares come in rapid succession, the dialogue is good and the gore immense. GET THE UNCUT VERSION THOUGH
Nail Gun Massacre 1985
I am not sure what kind of humour you have dear reader, but for me, telling everyone that I have a really scary film and putting on this trash is hilarious. Admittedly only for me. In fact, I have never been invited back to that particular friend’s house…. erm…Ok let’s scrap that one … Moving on…
So it drags a bit in places. Thing is though that’s no better time to begin getting up to something more, ahem, intriguing??? But despite the odd dull moment, The Prowler delivers. Gore, shocks and suspense. Chuck on top of that some fine, fine performances
Stylish outing from director Mark Rosman that wisely chooses to build its shocks through suspense instead of gore. The final sequence, which sees the killer in a creepy costume, is probably one of the greatest final shots of the cycle.
