Halloween Films

Posted 31st Oct
Can anyone suggest a good spooky Halloween film for me and the missus to watch tonight?
I'm looking for something with more suspense than gore.
Otherwise, we'll be watching Halloween again.
Tarrrrrrrrrrrr.

Terrifier (2016)
I still enjoy the original Halloween with Jamie Lee Curtis.
Do you mean Halloween 3 on "Horror" tonight? That's a good 'classic' watch if it's the uncut version.

What platforms do you have to view on? I love all the "Conjuring" series of films at the moment. "Annabelle" movies are good too. "Mama" was another good film. Oh, and "The Babadook." That's worth a look. I bet you've seen them all already though, eh?
If you have NowTV (Sky Movies) they are showing the latest (possibly last) Halloween movie at the mo. It wasn't fantastic though (IMHO) but if you like the series, it's worth it to see JLC in action again. It does have it's moments...
Is she looking for something that will put the willies up her?

Have you seen my wife?
She'll have to look elsewhere.
Hocus Pocus is a good one if your looking for a family friendly less scary film alongside Th Nightmare Before Christmas which can also be argued as a Christmas film

Seen that a few months ago, scariest clown I've ever came across that's for sure!

Alien or Aliens

The Thing
Evil Dead remake
Carrie

The Exorcist

So bloody many...
I second ‘Let the right one in’

everton history
Coraline might fit the bill.

Ridiculous creepy for a PG rating
Bit old now, but Blair witch is my fav

It's not spooky but Don't Breathe was pretty good imo


Suspense does not get much better than the old classic The Haunting (1963) not the terrible 1999 remake or for that matter the decidedly average The Haunting Of Hill House on Netflix.

The old ITV classic film of 'The Woman In Black' way better than the Daniel Radcliffe film and worth looking for.

"It Follows"gets my vote if you haven't seen it, it has a similar kind of feel to Halloween

If you don't fancy subtitles with "Let the Right One In" I'm pretty sure "Let Me In" was the US version.

I remember watching that on a copy VHS back in 1999 with a few school mates, I told them it was real and proper freaked them out.
After the film finished they all had to walk home, the fog was terrible outside so made them even worse... One mate rang when he got home and said hes sure something was following him
In any case don’t watch “Hereditary “. Complete snooze fest in which NOTHING HAPPENS!
Evil dead, the first and original one, it's one of the scariest films I've ever seen 😧.
The Grudge is a great film, the 2 sequels are not bad either.
Drag Me To Hell on Film 4 10.45 tonight

Let the Right One In (2008)The Babadook (2014)Not Halloween themed but …Let the Right One In (2008)The Babadook (2014)Not Halloween themed but worth watching.


The babadook was terrible
It follows
Or
Any of those spate of Japanese horrors from the grudge era
Thanks for all for your recommendations.

I'd kind of agree with you, apart from that one scene - you know the one I'm talking about - was pretty damn shocking and I didn't see it coming. When it did -

I would say though that I love Toni Collette as an actor and find her to be excellent in anything she's in - this included.

I dunno. I find it interesting as I age: things I used to find terrifying as a young ‘un (under 30) really don’t bother me now (over 40). I used to avoid “horror” films but now quite enjoy them when the missus is out on a girls night out.
Must be the eternal horror of having a couple of kids around
Can't beat Halloween (1978) The best ever horror film.

Same here, just sitting down to watch the 1978 35th Anniversary Edition, hadn't planned on it but this thread got me thinking.

I agree, watched the latest Halloween on Sky recently, it’s actually alright
Halloween H20 is on Freeview somewhere tonight, thought that was a bit better than the most recent Halloween reboot, which I found really disappointing. Can't beat the original!
Original Texas Chain saw massacre...
