Scary Movies for Halloween

My husband and I rented “The last house on the left” last weekend. It was a good movie, but it could have done without the graphic rape scene.

I have never seen a horror movie that has really scared me. Does anyone have any recommendations? Tell me a must see horror movie.

Here is a list of my favorite horror movies of all times and just in time for Halloween.

The Amityville Horror

The Amityville Horror – Based on a bestselling, allegedly nonfiction book about haunted goings-on in a Long Island house.


Poltergeist – a classic. It feels so strange saying that Poltergeist is a classic considering it is a film of the 80’s. (Showing my age.)

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre – “Inspired by a true story and the classic 1974 film. A group of teenagers take a detour from a road trip and what happens next is beyond anyone’s darkest fears and raw nightmares.”

Sleepy Hollow

Sleepy Hallow, though I didn’t personally find it all that scary. Sleepy Hallow is a version of the classic tale of horror.

Stir of Echoes

Stir of Echoes” starring Kevin Bacon. This movie kept me on the edge of my seat.

I’m really looking forward to renting “Drag me to Hell” this weekend. I likely won’t find it scary either.
