As Halloween draws closer I thought I’d list some of my favourite Halloween/Scary movies. Snuggling down under a blanket on a cold Autumn evening is the perfect way to spend time!
The Craft – The film focuses on 4 teenage girls who are outcasts. They use witch craft to make things go their way. The main character is Sarah who has just moved to the area and becomes friends with three girls. The spells they perform soon start to have a negative impact on their lives rather than the positive impact they had hoped for.
The Witches – I loved this film as a child. It’s based on the Roald Dahl novel by the same name. It’s about a little boy called Luke who goes to stay in a hotel with his Grandmother. She tells him that Witches exist among us and the tell tale signs. It turns out the hotel they’re in is hosting a convention attended by Witches from all around the World. The film is about how Luke plans to get rid of the Witches.
The Addams Family – And the sequel to this film, The Addams Family Values. Both films I loved as a child. I used to like watching the old TV series of The Addams Family so when this came out I remember going to see it at the cinema. The storyline isn’t great but it’s still fun.
Stephen King’s IT – Ah this film is a classic. I watched it as a child and didn’t find it in the least bit scary. I’m worse watching it as an adult!! I’ve yet to see the new one. This film is about Pennywise the Clown and a group of outcast children. Why are they always outcasts? The story is about how they kill IT.
Carrie – Another classic horror movie. Again I saw this as a child and it had no effect, but scares the life out of me now. The hand at the end gets me every time. If you know, you know 😉 Carrie is an outcast! Another outcast who lives with her Mother who is an extreme Christian and slightly crazy. She gets bullied at school so another school girl asks her boyfriend to ask Carrie to the prom. The prom doesn’t go to plan!
