Looking for some scary movies to watch this Halloween? Read this

I will be entirely transparent in admitting that it has been a hot minute since I have watched a horror movie. For a while there, I was watching one a week or so, but as of late I have fallen off of the horror movie wagon and am struggling to get back on it.

I admit part of the reason I haven’t watched a scary movie in a bit is that Blaine isn’t necessarily the biggest fan of them, and to be fair, Netflix doesn’t necessarily have the best selection when you’ve seen most of the movies it does offer. I think it would be safe to assume Blaine and I have watched the majority of the scary movies on Netflix to date.

Despite my horror movie hiatus, I do still have some opinions on the matter, and I thought I would compile a list of some of my favourite scary movies for anyone interested in watching this spooky season. I say these are my favourites because they’re well-executed horror movies, and because they actually scared me. Check it out.

  • Hereditary (2018)
  • The Ring (2002)
  • The Blair Witch Project (1999)
  • Gerald’s Game (2017)
  • The Mist (2007)
  • Oculus (2013)
  • Lights Out (2016)
  • The Ritual (2017)
  • Bone Tomahawk (2015)
  • The Others (2001)
  • Creep (2014)
  • The Invitation (2015)
  • The Conjuring (2013)
  • Shaun of the Dead (2004) – this one is quite gory but absolutely hilarious
  • Don’t Breathe (2016)
  • The Shining (1980)
  • Midsommar (2019)
  • Drag me to Hell (2009)
  • The Witch (2015)
  • The Silence of the Lambs (1991)
  • The Babadook (2014)
  • A Quiet Place (2018)
  • Get Out (2017)
  • Vacancy (2007)

I’m certain I’m missing a few, but here’s hoping this list can get you into the spooky spirit this Halloween season. If I had to pick the scariest movies in this list, my top three would be Hereditary, The Conjuring, and The Blair Witch Project, closely followed by Bone Tomahawk.
