Halloween 2013

September 3, 2013

It is now September & that means the fall season is right around the corner. Football is back, school’s back in session, & the temps will soon be dropping. It also means that Halloween is right around 8 weeks away. Halloween isn’t my favorite holiday, but I have always been a huge fan of horror films. Last year I decided to start early in September & watch as many horror films as I could before Halloween. I aimed for 50 & if I recall, I ended around 48. I watched about 50% of those from my personal collection.

Of all those that I watched last Halloween season, here were my 25 favorites: (Not all of these would make my overall top 25.)

  • 28 Days Later (2002)
  • Alien (1979)
  • American Psycho (2000)
  • The Birds (1963)
  • The Blair Witch Project (1999)
  • Dawn of the Dead (1978)
  • Don’t Look Now (1973)
  • Dracula (1931)
  • The Evil Dead (1981)
  • Evil Dead 2 (1987)
  • The Exorcist (1973)
  • The Fly (1958)
  • The Fog (1980)
  • Halloween (1978)
  • Halloween II (1981)
  • The Innocents (1961)
  • Night of the Living Dead (1968)
  • Nosferatu (1922)
  • Peeping Tom (1960)
  • Repulsion (1965)
  • Rosemary’s Baby (1968)
  • Santa Sangre (1989)
  • The Shining (1980)
  • The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974)
  • The Thing (1982)

As you can see, I prefer the “classics” or the originals instead of the remakes for the most part. [Except for The Thing (1982), one of the best remakes… hell- best movies EVER!]

What are some of your favorites or films you’d recommend I watch this year? Pretty much anything goes with me. It doesn’t matter to me if I’ve seen it before or not. Campy, slashers, thrillers, zombie flicks, witches, vampires, werewolves, gouls, ghosts, or goblins!
