31 Days, 31 Scary Movies!!

Growing up in the late 80’s and early 90’s it was a simpler time.

A time when cable networks didn’t really have original programming and basically only played scary movies.

In fact on weekends you could hang out at home and watch MonsterVision with Joe Bob Briggs. It was pretty great!

So I have compiled a list to go along with the family friendly Halloween movies found here!

So please enjoy 31 scary movies for October!

1. Silver Bullet

1. It’s Stephen King 2. The main character is a boy in a wheelchair 3. Gary Busey!

2. The Hills Have Eyes (2006)

The Hill people are so gross and the movie is so gory. It’s just really fucked up and probably based on a true story.

3. Dawn of the Dead (2004)

As far as Zombie movies go this one is one of the more legit ones!

4. Scream Series

You can’t just watch one, you have to watch them all! Take this day to learn about Sidney Prescott and all her dead friends.

5. Halloween Series

37865-Michael-Myers-Gif

So obviously you can skip some of these movies! So I’ll suggest you can do this

Jamie Lee – Halloween, Halloween 2, H2O, Halloween: Resurrection

Danielle Harris – Halloween, Halloween 2, Halloween 4, Halloween 5

6. The Skeleton Key

7. The Blair Witch Project

Because you’ll always double-check the locks in your home after this!

9. The Grudge

You’ll be scaring people with that noise after you watch this movie!

10. Insidious Series

These two movies will scare you far more than you need to be scared!

11. Friday the 13th Series

Well it started with his momma but Jason def kept the kills coming!

Watch the original for sure! But also for the other films in the series they’re all worth watching.

12. Nightmare on Elm Street Series

I don’t advocate Freddy. But I will say that they did create some great female leads.

You have to finish off this weekend with Freddy vs. Jason. It’s the only way!

13. Wrong Turn

horror-gifs-2-6

So I love this movie! It actually scares me that Inbreeding in West Virginia could get this out of hand!

14. Carrie

Don’t play games…watch the original!

15. The Conjuring

Ae43Jnv

A legitimate scary movie based on a true story. With all parties involved saying ‘Yup that happened’ GET THE FUCK OUT OF HERE!!!!

16. I Know What You Did Last Summer

Tumblr_lz1o9bt3OT1qd8nujo1_500

If you pretend Jennifer Love Hewitt dies it’s a much better movie

17. Misery

tumblr_m853zlTRPh1qj7u8ao1_500

This is one of my favorite movies ever! It’s very hard to watch at times because you can feel the pain inflicted but it’s worth it.

18. Poltergeist Series

84187262

The first 2 are great. The 3rd one wasn’t as good but let’s remember the girl who played Carolann died while they were filming so you have to acknowledge that while you watch.

19. Childs Play Series

tumblr_n2m5u2d9pr1rdqbfro1_500

Stop after the 3rd one…it just gets messier and campier.

20. The Exorcist

Because you’re from St. Louis and this story comes from here, make it your business to see this movie.

21. The Shining

tumblr_miabclIoip1s00ervo2_250

One of the most well acted scary movies out there…because lets face it scary movies aren’t known for their acting.

22. The Crazies

giphy (1)

One of those our government has gotten out of hand with germ warfare movies. This one however it great!

23. Jaws

jaws

This movie literally scared people from going in the ocean when it came out. We know it’s just a puppet shark but back then they didn’t know that.

24. IT

tumblr_mtf7wxo6kY1sj2tmyo1_500

There is nothing more terrifying than Pennywise….NOTHING

25. Final Destination Series

Wendy_train

Really to watch this series you just have to decide which disaster you’d like to start with.

Airplane crash, Highway pileup, Rollercoaster derailed, stadium collapse from a race car crash or a bridge collapse.

26. Alien Series

alien

Stop at 3….if you even watch 3. The first two are so good you may need to skip it.

27. The Exorcism of Emily Rose

tumblr_lk3dv1sFuN1qazkdco1_500

Blended with a court case claiming she wasn’t possessed it’s up to you to believe that she was….SHE WAS!

28. Sorority Row

Sorority-Row-horror-movies-21015622-350-146

A great slasher film and it’s as ridiculous as you would expect!

29. Darkness Falls

tumblr_mgks4gr8ot1rxam8fo1_500

I watched this movie with a group of friends in the dark…it was one of the most frightening experiences ever!

30. The Ring

giphy (2)

Don’t lie you’re still afraid of this movie…and you should be!

31. The Cabin in the Woods

Cabin-in-the-woods

A very modern twist on a classic Horror set up. Definitely worth watching!
