The Best Halloween Films!

I'm really excited about Halloween this year!

I've always loved this time of year. It brings back so many fond memories of dressing up with my brother and trick-or-treating in the local streets!

I'm definitely too old for trick-or-treating now, so instead I intend to spend my halloween tucked up with los of sweets and some scary films! I've been asking some awesome bloggers for their favourite Halloween recommendations, and this is what they've suggested:

Kel at Adventures In Tea And Cake suggested Halloween, citing it as 'a classic for a reason'. This film might be the ultimate Halloween film - not just chillingly scary still, but set on Halloween night to get you really in the mood! Some of the events and twists may seem predicable now but that's because this is the film that set up all those stereotypes in the first place!


Hocus Pocus is a favourite over at Eat Sleep Love Travel, where it is enjoyed all year round! The story of three witches resurrected 300 years after their death is a well-loved family favourite - a halloween classic for all ages!


Jamie Sowden's favourite Halloween film is The Nightmare Before Christmas. This is often thought of as a Christmas film but Jack was king of Halloween Town well before he set his sights on Christmas!


I share another favourite with Charlie at Modish Male in Scream - the tongue-in-cheek postmodern masterpiece was a really unexpected and funny take on the slasher film and hasn't lost any of its shine!


So far, all well-known and well-loved films, but for those looking for something a little different is the suggestion from Emma at Fashion Mommy. The Spiral Staircase is a black and white 1946 film and in Emma's words is a 'total classic...serial killer, thunderstorms - the works!'


I've not seen The Spiral Staircase but will definitely add it to my must-watch list! Another one that I haven't seen is Kieron at The Totality's suggestion of Eyes Without A Face. You can read his full review here but Kieron says it's a classic of 50's French horror!


I hope all that's given you some fresh ideas for what to watch this Halloween, as well as some insight as to what other bloggers will have on their screens!

Do you have a favourite that isn't mentioned here? I'd love to hear about it in the comments!
