Top 5 Horror Movies to Watch on Halloween
Halloween is here and you know what that means! It's time to snuggle under the blankets, turn off the lights, and watch some spooky movies! Here are our top 5 flicks that scared us to bits:
Audition (Dir: Takashi Miike)
Adapted from Ryu Murakami's book of the same name, Audition tells the tale of a widower named Shigeharu Aoyama who stages a fake audition to meet a potential new life partner. After interviewing several women, Aoyama takes a liking to Asami. Soon, however, her dark past begins to affect their relationship...
Hereditary (Dir: Ari Aster)
Ari Aster's debut feature sees Toni Collette putting on a performance of a lifetime as a deeply troubled woman haunted by the death of her mother. This event soon leads to the disintegration of her family as more horrible things start to happen.
The Witch (Dir: Robert Eggers)
Set in 17th century New England, this slow-burn movie explores the repressive structure of Puritan society and how that differs from the main character's desire to be free from the shackles of her conventional Christian family. Sometimes, all you need to unsettle you is the feeling of impending dread.
Night of the Living Dead (Dir. George Romero)
Despite its seemingly simple premise of seven people trapped in a rural farmhouse during a zombie outbreak, Night of the Living Dead is actually the beginning of the zombie genre that will populate pop culture in the years to come. If you love The Walking Dead, this film will be right up your alley.
Halloween (Dir. John Carpenter)
What better way to celebrate Halloween than watching a film titled, well, "Halloween"? This 1978 film, which tells the tale of a disturbing boy named Michael Myers who kills his teenage sister and then goes on to kill more people 15 years later, popularised the slasher genre in the late 70s and early 80s. Without Michael Myers, Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees would not exist.
