Horror Film 101

What's not to love about October? The leaves fall, pumpkin makes its way into everything, getting dressed becomes a little more fun and the month leads up to Halloween! The 31st isn't all about dressing up and consuming unormal amounts of sugar. It's also the time for celebrating fear. I wasn't a fan of horror films until a few years ago. I'm working my 3rd Mile High Horror Film Festival this year and I've definitely learned a thing or two. With my knowledge, I have narrowed down a few films that will best suit your horror needs.

Gore

Cooties (2014)

Dude Bro Party Massacre III (2015)

Morituris (2011)

 

Thriller

Angst (1983)

Scream (1996) -In honor of Wes Craven and possibly, one of my favorite horror movies.

Sun Choke (2015)

 

Haunting

Poltergeist (1982)

The Haunting in Connecticut (2009)

Proxy (2013)

 

Posession

The Exorcist (1973) -To this day, I can not finish watching this movie.

Rosemary's Baby (1968)

Bite (2015)

 

There you have it! You have a whole month's worth of terrifying movies. There are plenty of other great classics, but this list would be the equivalent to the Grady twins' need to play with Danny Torrance. Forever and ever and ever...
