It’s the spookiest time of the year, Happy Halloween. Every year at the end of October it’s time to get dressed as monsters or other creatures, eat candy and give yourself some good scares and laughs. We know a good way for you to get the full Halloween experience is by watching some classics or new diamonds of the spookiest season. And they don’t have to frighten you to death to be good. Here are the top films and series for Halloween.
A true diamond. Scary, more than confusing and makes you aware of being careful when you first meet your partner’s parents. Get Out was one of the most successful films of 2017 and that was well deserved. It’s a very suspenseful thriller, not really horror but with the perfect surprise moments to scare you. But for sure you will feel sorry for the main character Chris, who is so in love with his girlfriend. It would have been so easy if she only had weird parents, but something is wrong with all the people that Chris gets in contact with.
Halloween from 1978 is a real classic and not for people with a nervous disposition. It’s seriously very scary, take that as a warning. But if you are a Halloween Junkie then you should totally go for it. The story is about a 21 year old man who killed his siblings when he was younger, so he was sent to Smith’s Grove Warren County Sanatorium. However, he escapes the day before Halloween and starts to stalk someone. Happy Halloween. A lot of weird people are out there, one of them is Michael Myers. But if older movies are not really your thing, you can also go and see Halloween from 2018. You can meet Michael there as well.
Naturally we had to include the new Netflix Original Series The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. It’s the third and by far the darkest version of the series around the young half witch. The spooky touch of it makes this series perfect for some binge watching over Halloween. And not only was Sabrina born on Halloween 16 years ago, but this year she shall become a full member of the Church of Night on this day. But if the series is a bit too spooky with all the blood and demons, we can suggest something similar.
Sabrina, the Teenage Witch is sort of the “big sister” of the Netflix Original of 2018. The sitcom aired from 1996 to 2003 on ABC and the WB. The story is indeed similar as it is based on the same comic book series, the story of Sabrina Spellman living with her aunts and the cat Salem. But the rest is different. Sabrina, the Teenage Witch is indeed a sitcom therefore very funny but not as dark as The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Since there have were seven seasons of the series, there have been quite a few Halloween episodes. Maybe not the spookiest but one of the most fun series to see over Halloween – and let’s be honest: Who doesn’t love a talking Salem?
Attention Zombie Lovers! Here is something for the heart. Zombies are essential for Halloween but who says that they can’t love? At least some of them. Warm Bodies from 2013 tells the story of a zombie and a human that fall in love with each other. He is still dead, but he is getting warmer. It’s a different type of a zombie film that shows zombies as the monster they are but also tries to give them back some of their humanity and that is not only heart warming, it’s body warming.
Everyone has heard about this show, whether you watch it or not. American Horror Story is the mother of horror TV Shows. The plot of each seasons is always different, with previous themes including Asylum, Freak Show, Cult or the newest season, Apocalypse. The actors are almost the same every season but since there are different stories each season, you can watch whatever seasons you like. It’s not as necessary for this series to watch straight from season 1 to season 8 to understand the plot as it is for other series.
