Good Halloween movies?

Asked by Comedian (1123points) October 13th, 2008

So I’m having a Halloween party right, and I want to put on some movies after we go trick or treating right, so what movies do you think I should get? The youngest is like a 7th grader and the oldest are juniors

First of all, aren’t ya’ll a bit too old to go trick or treating?
Second, how about classic movies? Try some Hitchcock (The Birds, Rear Window, etc.) They are oldies, but man are they great.

You’re never too old to trick or treat is what I say!
And I would suggest, along with Les, oldies, like Dawn of the Dead and all those awesome zombie types. If you’re looking for some laughs, try The Living Dead.
And of course, I have to say that movies like Childs Play, Beetlejuice, Nightmare Before Christmas, Nightmare on Elm Sreet, Friday the 13th and last but not least, Halloween.
I also second stink111 on TCM.

Along the lines of aneedle, how about the Evil Dead trilogy? I think you’d like that, if you’ve never seen it.

If you’re looking for scary movies, then Halloween is my first choice as well. Followed by the newer Dawn of the Dead, and for laughs and screams Shawn of the Dead. If you need “family friendly” try BeetleJuice, Adams Family Values, or Casper.

You could rent an old horror B-movie. That would be great to watch in a group. Cat People or I Walked with a Zombie or the like.

Actually, someone made a cool list of low-budget horror movies – I haven’t heard of some of these…

EDIT: Not sure youngsters would be willing to sit through this. They should get a prize if they do.

Night of the Lepus. So bad, but so good.

Some other favorites of mine:
– The Fog
– The Haunting
– 13 Ghosts
– The Stepford Wives
– Romero’s Living Dead series

The originals, not the remakes. I did like the remake of The Stepford Wives, but it’s really funny. Not Halloween material like the original.

The Exorcist is THE scariest movie I have EVER seen.

I want to know what a 7th grader is doing hanging around with HS juniors.

“I want to know what a 7th grader is doing hanging around with HS juniors.”

Plenty of reasons. Could be family members. Could be a group of neighbors. Could be part of something like a drama club group, which was 6th-12th grade in my school…

@Les: You are seriously NEVER too old to go trick or treating

@poof: Why can’t a 7th grader hang out with high schoolers? She is my friend. I don’t care what age she is.

And please no scary movies. I can’t handle those. I get nightmares.

The Exorcist, Rosemary’s Baby, and The Shining are annual favorites of mine. They are all very scary, very psychologically disturbing movies.

On my viewing list also is Nightmare Before Christmas and Halloween.

Comedian's avatar

@Marcis: yeah no psychological disturbing movies. didn’t you see my post?
