You’ve decided to put together a Halloween movie marathon, but you don’t know where to start. You need a mix, the obvious ones, but also a few curve balls. Don’t panic, we have your back. Here are some of the best Halloween movies of all time.

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974)

If you haven’t already done so, now is the time – to finally work up the courage to see Tobe Hooper’s criminally underrated classic, a top-rank satire of American class warfare (survival of the hungriest), teenage misadventure in the backwoods and one of the darkest masterpieces of the ’70s. Though shrouded in a gruesome reputation generated by that title, Texas isn’t particularly gory. It is, however, the scariest movie ever made.


Kicking it off with a classic, we have IT. Seven young friends from Derry, Maine, face their worst nightmare – an ancient, shape-shifting clown that emerges from the sewer every 27 years to prey on the town’s children. Creepy. Whether you prefer the first release or the latest version, they are both great and equally terrifying.


One of our favourites has to be the Scream movies. This first Scream film sees a fright-masked knife maniac who stalks high-school students in middle-class suburbia. Scream is a full of moments that put you on the edge of your seat – leaving you with plenty of opportunities to make your mates jump!

The Shining

HERE’S JOHNNY! A film we have to mention is The Shining. A man becomes a caretaker at a hotel to help cure his writer’s block and you know the rest. It’s Jack Nicholson at his finest, we don’t really need to say much more, it has to be on your list.


One of the best films you have to watch this Halloween is Orphan. It’s one of the newer films on the list and it’s definitely a classic. Devastated by the loss of their unborn baby, a couple decide to adopt a child. At the orphanage, they both feel drawn to a little girl and so it all begins.

Not sure if you want to spend your halloween alone in a dark house now? Don’t worry, because we’ve pulled together a few things you can do instead.
