Halloween | Scary Movies

Following on from my Friendly Halloween movies post (read me), I thought I'd put together a list of scary halloween movies. I'm not easily scared by movies, but here are my top 10 movies that sent shivers down my spine!

1. 1408
This actually scared me shitless, I vowed never to watch it again! Mike Eslin, a man who specialises in debunking paranormal occurrences takes on room 1408 at the Dolphin Hotel and is confronted with genuine terror.

2. The Changeling (1980)
No, not the Angelina Jolie Changeling! A classic haunting movie where a man staying in a mansion is haunted by the presence of a spectre. 

3. Carrie (1976)
If you haven't seen Carrie, why not? A social outcast discovers she has telekinesis, when she is invited to her prom she is pushed to her limits. Plug it up!

4. Candyman
Don't say his name three times! Candyman is a murderous soul with a hook for a hand, summoned by the skeptical Helen Lyle as she researches his myth. 

5. The Exorcism of Emily Rose
Possessions freak me out, those jerky movements and black eyes! A lawyer takes on the case of the death of Emily Rose. The priest who performed the exorcism is being tried for negligent homicide.

6. The Exorcist
What list would be complete without The Exorcist? People even died during the production! Regan is possessed by a mysterious entity when her mother seeks the help of two priests to help save her daughter. 

7. A Nightmare on Elm Street
1, 2 Freddie's coming for you. A man with burn scars and knives for fingers that will kill you in your dreams, Freddie is terrifying! 

8. REC
Inspired by The Blair Witch Project, REC is a "caught on camera" movie. A building is locked down when  woman wearing a blood stained dress attacks the residents. Imagine being stuck in there with nowhere to go? 

9. The Grudge
Okay she creeps me out. The noises she makes, the way she moves, her face. Everything. Next.

10. IT
Possibly the creepiest clown in the world. Ever. This film actually gave me nightmares. In 1960 a group of kids are haunted by an evil demon posing as a clown, who comes back for them 30 years later. I just shivered.

So they're my top 10 scary films to watch this Halloween! 
Which films will you be watching?
