The season for scary movies has finally arrived. And if you are anything like me, you have a difficult time deciding what to watch. There are a plethora of scary movies out there, but only a handful are really worth your time. Knowing which one to pick can be a difficult task, so I have made a list of movies organized to help you choose how scared you really want to be when the credits role.
If you’re in the mood for something creepy but still want a good night’s rest, opt for one of these bad boys:
The Nightmare Before Christmas
The Corpse Bride
Halloween Town 1, 2, & 3
Each one of these is classified as a children’s movies so no worries if you think you might get scared. They’ll just give you the heebie-jeebies.
Maybe you want a psychological thrill but little to none of the blood:
The Sixth Sense
Silence of the Lambs
The Blair Witch Project
All of these movies are light on the fake blood but heavy on the thrills, so prepare for some paranoia.
And for the people who are down for everything under the broad band of “horror” (yes, including the blood):
Night of the Living Dead
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)
Friday the 13th
A Nightmare on Elm Street
The Cabin in the Woods
These are some of the greatest horror movies ever made and just might scare you to death, or at least keep you up all night.
Whether you classify yourself as a scaredy-cat or a die-hard horror fan, you’re sure enjoy at least one of these classic creepers this season.
