Top Ten Scary Halloween Movies

In the early autumn season, everybody wants to be thrilled and spooked by a film for Halloween. These films will leave you thinking about the scares long after they are over. Here are our top ten scary movies.

1. The Shining (1980)
This film, adapted from a Stephen King novel, follows the story of a family after they move into an empty Colorado hotel during the off-season to take care of it. This film offers a rare glimpse into madness.

2. The Exorcist (1973)
Often cited as one of the scariest films of all time, The Exorcist offers a number of blatant and subtle scares. When it was released, this film was extremely controversial because it featured Satan possessing the body of a pre-teen girl.

3. Psycho (1960)
The story of the Bates Motel is frightful enough to appeal to generations of horror fans. This Hitchcock classic features a twist ending that even modern audience members will not see coming.

4. Nosferatu (1922)
This movie is a true classic, one of the first horror films of all time. It focuses on the creepiness of a vampire who stalks the residents of Bremen.

5. Scream (1996)
The original Scream film that launched a franchise was met with fan acclaim, especially for its opening scene. A film that kills off its most famous actress within the first 10 minutes has guts, literally.

6. A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)
It is scary enough to think that somebody is out to get you when you are awake, but this movie features an inescapable slasher: the infamous Freddy Kreuger, a villain who enters the dreams of sleeping teenagers.

7. Night of the Living Dead (1968)
This George Romero classic is one of the first zombie films to make a splash in the industry. The characters in this film are in a fight for their lives.

8. The Blair Witch Project (1999)
This horror film masquerading as a documentary fooled many naïve audience members when it came out. It documents a camping trip gone awry.

9. The Strangers (2008)
This film is scary based on just one concept: the reason a couple is tortured for hours is simply because they happened to be home.

10. Halloween (1978)
The ultimate Halloween movie follows a teenage girl and her babysitting changes as they escape from a masked madman with a thirst for blood.

If you are looking for a kid friendly movie, there are plenty of choices to choose from.  Some of our favorites include Hocus Pocus, Casper and The Nightmare Before Christmas. As you look for the perfect Halloween film to watch alone or at your holiday party, keep these movies in mind.
