I’m not one for horror films but I do love halloween themed anything & I’ve seen a few films over the years that I consider to be halloween themed, although, to be fair, I watch most of them when it’s not halloween too, the only two I tend to keep especially for halloween are Hocus Pocus & Practical Magic, I don’t know why because I love them so much, I just do, I think it’s because they fill me with such excitement & when I know that halloween season is approaching, you better believe that they’re on my mind. Hehe.
Because I’m not one for horror films, I asked a few people for recommendations.
Here’s some halloween themed films I think you should add to your watch list & some suggested by others
Ones that I’m willing to watch
Beetlejuice – A recently deceased husband and wife commission a bizarre demon to drive an obnoxious family out of their home.
I’ve not seen Nightmare on Elm Street since I was a kid but I remember being terrified as a younger child but then I watched again when I was in my teens & remember laughing in places & thinking how cool the effects looked but not seen it since then.
My mum would never let me watch these films in her house, she wouldn’t even let me bring them in the house for years, she said they were called Omen for a reason. I love them & I actually feel sorry for Damien. I haven’t, however, seen the last most recent one.
Ones that I most definitely won’t watch
Ones I’ve seen but would never watch again
Stephen Kings IT terrified me & is the reason I can’t stand anything to do with clowns.
The Fourth Kind took me about 4 months to get over & about 6 months completely ignore, the 1st time I watched it, was with my brother & mum one night when I lived in Wiltshire (UK), I wasn’t watching it properly because I was also on my laptop & when it finished, I asked my brother to leave it when they left the next day so I could watch it properly, I watched it on my own, STUPIDLY thinking nothing of it & boy, I wished I hadn’t bothered, my life would’ve been a lot rosier had I never even known this film existed! I remember it being during the very few warmer months Britain has & I had to sleep with my windows closed every single night for weeks & every time I heard an owl, it terrified me. I couldn’t handle the dark very well but I couldn’t bare to lie in bed being able to see any of the sky. Any noise had me on edge immediately. Wow, did that film terrify me or what. I was about 30 – 32 when I watched it, I’ve tried to watch it again about 3 times since then because although, it terrified me, I did want to overcome it but I just can’t, if it was completely make-believe, I reckon it’d be in my able to watch list but it’s because it’s based on true events that scares me. You never know, one day, I may be able to watch it again???
One I wasn’t sure about to begin with
I did watch the trailer for The Witch & it actually looks good, it’s one that I will definitely be watching at some point.
