Here is your October scary movie marathon list

Scary movies, as I’ve mentioned before, are my favourite genre of film to watch. I’m not exactly sure why, but I thoroughly enjoy a horror movie that leaves me in a seriously scared state.

I enjoy watching scary films year-round, but a lot of people typically don’t watch them unless it is an appropriate time of year, for example, around the time of Halloween. I’ve seen a few different threads containing horror movie suggestions to partake in a scary movie marathon as a means to celebrate the spooky season, and I thought I would share one with all of you horror fanatics out there. This list comes from

  • “‘The Shining’ (1980)
  • ‘Doctor Sleep (Director’s Cut)’ (2019)
  • ‘The Lighthouse’ (2019)
  • ‘The Pale Door’ (2020)
  • ‘Black Christmas’ (2019)
  • ‘Gretel & Hansel’ (2020)
  • ‘Body Cam’ (2020)
  • ‘Vampires vs. The Bronx’ (2020)
  • ‘Swallow’ (2020)”

I chose this particular list because it features some more recent flicks (some of which I haven’t even heard of), but that isn’t to say that some older or more dated scary movies aren’t worth re-watching. Some of my own personal suggestions include:

  • ‘The Ring’ (2002)
  • ‘The Blair Witch Project’ (1999)
  • ‘The Conjuring’ (2013)
  • ‘Hereditary’ (2018)
  • ‘The Babadook’ (2014)
  • ‘A Quiet Place’ (2018)
  • ‘The Witch’ (2015)
  • ‘The Perfection’ (2018)
  • ‘The Silence of the Lambs’ (1991)
  • ‘Drag me to Hell’ (2009)

These are but a few of some of my favourite films to put on when I feel like having the living hell scared out of me, and some are more intense than others. There are undoubtedly some I forgot to mention, but I think my own list is a good start for anyone hoping to truly get into the Halloween spirit this year.

If you’re unsure of where to start, do a quick Google search to see what sort of results turn up when researching seriously scary movies. I imagine a few of the ones mentioned in this post will appear, and if you have a cult-favourite scary movie, feel free to let me know what it is in the comments!
