Looking forward to things that’d scare you this Halloween? Well, people’s antics and costumes might not suffice for most. You might need something extra to make the most out of this day. The day is believed to bring down the ghosts of the dead before the start of a long cold winter. Some might like to step out of their house to celebrate this festival at a party but not everyone. We’re here to address that population. Yeah, you might even throw a house party and scare the shit out of your friends to your fancy.
These 5 flicks are no joke. This is a serious horror that might linger at the back of your head for a long time. So sit back, hit those lights and enjoy.
It’s a clichéd statement that no one can dare watch a horror movie on their headphones. Well! We just dare you to watch this one. It has everything, a house in the woods, a backyard with a spooky tree, an attic, and a basement for Christ’s sake. Not giving on the plot but there are “kids” in this movie. All that and the spooky aura of the day makes this a perfect watch for you to watch alone or with your buddies.
The Blair Witch Project (1999)
Oh! So you’re from the generation that thought the paranormal activity was a one of a kind movie that made you stay awake at night. Well, we are here to break that perception. Uh! When we said Paranormal Activity we only meant the first part. The Blair Witch Project broke the paradigm that a movie cannot be filmed with handheld cameras. That, combined with a solid storyline and stellar performances make this a must-watch. You’ll be scared to close your eyes, you’ll be scared to open them.
The power of Christ compels you to watch this movie. It is not regarded as the greatest horror movie of all time for nothing. If you’re one who enjoys a story, this one will grip your guts. “Based on true events” was never the same post The Exorcist.
The Exorcism of Emily Rose (2005)
If you’re someone who gets spooked easily, we recommend you to watch this movie. Its Halloween, you’re supposed to be scared. Another great example of how real-life events can take shape in cinema and have an impact on people. We’re talking serious impact, you might want to stay away from Googling the real-life story after watching this.
The Conjuring (2013)
James Wan gave horror movies a necessary uplift after the release of this movie. Not to mention that it spurred a universe of its own with multiple directors digging in their own independent stories. But nothing beats this classic! Not even a decade later it still beats its successor and remains as one of the best horror flicks ever made. You won’t play hide and clap after this for sure.
