Halloween is around the corner. Evan is a big big fan of the horror genre. He's a fright week junky. I on the other hand am not a big fan of horror movies and haven't seen a lot of the 'must see' ones. So... disclaimer, you're about to hate my list (and so am I). Here we go!
Jimmy is in blue. Evan is in green.
Yeah it hasn't scared me since ever because it's not scary or good but any movie list made in October needs to have Hocus Pocus on it. If a movie is played every single day for an entire month then that means it's a good movie. Doesn't mean it has to make sense (cause it doesn't). For some reason an entire generation latched onto this movie and I, being a fan of blending in and being cool, did the same. Hocus Pocus fan for life.

Boy Meets World Halloween Episode
Okay so the movie itself isn't scary. You're not going to jump or cover your eyes at any point. What's scary is that at the end of the film the crazy lady suffers no consequences. Fakes her own kidnapping/murder, kills a dude, comes back and everything is normal. Holy hell crazy girls are scary. I've never left a movie more unnerved.
The Hills Have Eyes
I like this one because it doesn't rely on any gore or jump scenes to scare the audience. It's a very slow & creepy build the entire movie, that culminates into a pretty twisted resolution. Mia Farrow plays Rosemary quite wonderfully, and her paranoia is extremely convincing and unsettling.
The prison cells scenes, the caves and the crazy lady. Get me the fuck out of there. My roommates and I rewatched this movie recently and I left the room for those. I'm not sure why it gets to me so much but it does. It keeps me up at night. I hate it. I don't like crazy people chasing me around an old prison. Don't like it one bit.
Kurt Russell is with a team of scientists in Antarctica, when they are introduced to an alien life-form that can take the shape of any living thing. It has plenty of gruesome and gory scenes. But as a viewer, you're much more terrified by the mystery of it all. You have no clue who is real, or who is the alien imitation trying to kill you. The isolation of the setting only adds to the horror, making it clear that there is no escape.
Flowers in the Attic
This was kind of a groundbreaking movie. At least for my eyes. I had never seen or heard of anything like it. A human puzzle. I remember watching and being in complete shock the entire time. Edge of my seat, jaw dropped, so entrenched in what the fuck was happening. That's what made it fun, the viewer is as much in the dark as the characters. We wake up in that room with them not knowing a thing about any of them or why this is hapening. Might be the most intense, paralyzing, first watch of a movie I've ever had.
This movie is awesome. Seriously. It was the most original horror movie I've seen in a long time, and was way too excited after watching it. It's your classic sexually transmitted disease killer curse movie. I listened to the soundtrack on Spotify during my morning commutes for a while. That may sound a little weird but the score is deliciously terrifying. It complimented the dreamlike atmosphere of the movie perfectly. I wish I could Men in Black myself so I could see it again for the 1st time. You need to watch it.
Blair Witch Project
This is hands down the scariest movie I have ever seen. I saw it in theaters when I was 13 and have been too chicken to ever try and watch it again. Probably never will. I refused to answer the phone for weeks. I do that now too but it's because I'm avoiding all social contact, not because I'm afraid of getting that "You will die in 7 days" call. It had a pretty great mix of jump scares, gruesome images and slow creepy build up scenes that'll make any tough guy (me) poop their pants.
