With October coming to a close next week, there’s one thing on everyone’s minds, and that’s Halloween. Costumes have been picked, decorations have been set, and pumpkins have been carved; the only thing left to do is curl up and watch a spooky movie. But which ones? Listed below are three options for your entertainment.
A classic Halloween- themed film would have to be “Nightmare on Elm Street.” This 1984 thriller about a serial killer named Freddy Krueger, who kills his victims in their dreams, has haunted viewers for generations. This is director Wes Craven’s most well-known film, alongside “Scream.”
For those who prefer newer movies, go see “It” while it’s still in theaters. Originally a horror novel by Stephen King, “It” has become insanely popular because of the evil shape shifting clown known as Pennywise, that hides in the sewer system and preys on children. Fans of “Stranger Things” may also notice that actor Finn Wolfhard, known as Mike in the Netflix series, appears in this film.
Not a fan of scary movies? Need something with a lighter mood? Fall back on childhood classics like the “Halloweentown” series. Marnie Piper and her supernatural friends will always be there for you.
No matter if it’s “Children of the Corn” or “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown,” there’s no better way to get ready for the scariest holiday of the year. There are plenty of thrillers everywhere you look, whether in theaters, Netflix or throwbacks on Disney Channel.
Halloween is right around the corner, so grab a blanket, make some popcorn and watch something that’ll give you goosebumps for some hair- raising fun.
