Trish’s Picks: (Mostly) Scary Movies for Halloween

Halloween is only a week away, and we’re in the mood for some scary movies! Trish from our Lebanon Junction location has 7 picks sure to give you some chills and thrills this holiday season…


 

1. Night of the Living Dead
The original! 
Do you fear zombies? Well, this movie might push you over the edge. A cult classic, Night of the Living Dead has spectacularly terrifying and chilling cinematography well advanced for 1968. Even after 51 years Night of the Living Dead easily gives modern-day horror movies a run for their money. I’m coming to get you Barbara… 😉

2. A Quiet Place
Although not traditional Halloween movie fare, A Quiet Place rates high on the creepy thrill scale and is sure to leave you tense and gripping your seat! I love how wrapped up I get in the characters’ fight to avoid detection and even though I have seen this movie 15 times, I am still overcome with anxiety every time I watch it!

3. The Ring
A mysterious videotape is responsible for the horrifying death at the end of a week for anyone who watches it. Discovering the source of a family member’s death is this tape, a reporter must stop the chain of events before it hits even closer to home. “Seven days…”

4. The Haunting of Hill House (television series)
Flashbacks show the tragic and terrifying circumstances that forced them out of their home, ultimately revealing a terrifying conclusion. I was literally so caught up in this series that I suffered withdrawal from the fear when it ended!

5. Poltergeist
A family faces terror like they have never experienced when their home and lives are taken over by demonic forces. The fear is real, and I can’t help but feel a shiver down my spine remembering how scared I was! The behind-the-scenes stories are even more frightening. They’re hhhhhheeeerrreeee….

6. The Sixth Sense
A child sees the dead when no one else can and turns to a psychologist who is facing his own demons. Terrifying and at the same time giving the viewer a mystery to solve. My favorite thing was the build-up and the twist when I realized what had happened! I see dead people…

7. It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown
What can I say… I am a kid at heart and who doesn’t love Charlie Brown? A funny and heart-warming classic that I still love to watch every year! I got a rock…
