October is when classic scary movies make a comeback and when cuddling up to have a marathon almost every night is totally acceptable. With so many options that’ll make you cringe, we helped you out and created a handy dandy list of our top 10 scary movies. So grab a friend, some popcorn, and (if you’re a baby like us) a blanket to hide behind, and enjoy these classics.
- Friday the 13th
If Friday the 13th wasn’t already unlucky enough, there’s a creepy guy going around with a knife and a hockey mask. No big deal. This classic will definitely give you a scare.
- Nightmare on Elm Street
You won’t want to fall asleep during this one —literally. Going to sleep is kind of hard to do when a guy that has knives for hands haunts your dreams.
Another creepy mask guy. With murders taking place on Halloween, there’s no telling if the blood is real or fake. I mean, its title is Halloween for Pete’s sake, there’s no better time to watch this classic.
Now I’m talking about the original ya’ll. Small town with a large mysterious rate of disappearances —until you realize a monster that haunts children awakens every 27 years.
- The Conjuring
Based on true events, this horror flick shows what it’s like living with evil spirits as paranormal investigators try to get to the bottom of the case.
Who knew getting a doll for a present would turn into a nightmare? Chucky is only 29 inches tall, but somehow manages to be a serial killer doll. I feel like he was part of all of our childhood nightmares.
A couple begins experiencing some paranormal occurrences after a vintage doll shows up. Another creepy doll movie, but this one is based on true events. (Spooky)
There’s a murderer loose in a small town. The victims are terrorized with phone calls and random trivia questions before their death occurs. Not your typical scary-mask-killer type of guy (although he does wear a mask).
- Jeepers Creepers
You’ll never listen to the song, “Jeepers Creepers,” without cringing a little after watching this movie. Oh, and all the creepy stuff happens to a couple of college kids just trying to go home so have fun driving back to your hometown after this. Yikes.
- The Shining
Imagine living in an empty hotel for months — until you realize it’s not actually empty. A loving family is taken over by evil spirits and witness some crazy occurrences unfold. This one if for sure a classic.
