It still holds up today so if you haven’t seen it yet you need to get on that.
The Devil’s Backbone (2001)
During the Spanish Civil War, a young boy at an orphanage finds himself targeted by a demon and haunted by visions of the future.” This Guillermo del Toro Film is one of my personal favorites and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do once you sit down to watch it. It’s a slow burn so be patient with this one but if you have already seen films like Pan’s Labyrinth(2006) or Hellboy(2004) then you’re in store for some delightfully creepy imagery.
Curse Of Chucky (2013)
(Rated R for violence including bloody images, disturbing situations, some sexual material brief drug use )
“The murderous doll is back to terrorize his wheelchair-bound former wife and her family, who are being targeted by mysterious supernatural forces.” I’ll admit that after the sixth one I was skeptical but Curse Of Chucky is a fun ride throughout. Its gory, full of laughs, and above all scary. A new addition to the franchise that doesn’t mess up what came before it.

If you haven’t seen it yet do so immediately and see why it’s an icon.
Rosemary’s Baby (1968)
“A young couple finds their dream home, only to learn that the previous owner’s daughter died there under mysterious circumstances.” This Roman Polanski film is perfect come Halloween time. With its eerie setting and twisty ending Rosemary’s Baby is definitely one to watch over and over again throughout October. As always be careful who you trust around this time of year I can almost guarantee they are evil… or are they?
The Witch (2015)
A family in 1630s New England is torn apart by the forces of witchcraft, black magic, and possession.” This film works because it keeps you guessing. I love a good horror movie with a mystery to it and The Witch does not let me down one bit. One part Folklore apart a little bit of Evil Dead(1981). It’s awesome, deliver some scares this Halloween season with The Witch.
Night Of The Demons (1988)
After breaking into an abandoned funeral parlor, five teens perform a spell that unleashes 100 demons from hell.” What makes Night Of The Demons so fun is that it’s a party movie. For some strange reason, you can’t help but feel the need to have a Halloween party while watching this 80’s classic. With a fun setting and a strange but great plot, it makes for a perfect time of year viewing experience.
