Halloween Movies






I love the Halloween Season. It gives us a chance to get scared silly: all in good fun.

When I look for Halloween movies to review and recommend, my overall aesthetic is to pick films you might not have heard of, or thought about in a Halloween context. You can Google "Scary Movies" and come up with a thousand lists filled with Shinings, 13th Fridays, and Elm Street. Those are all well and good.

I'm interested in presenting a different set of films. Classics that may have been overlooked. Movies that are as funny as they are scary. And films that are scary in a different manner than the typical GOTCHA! blood-fest.

With that in mind I present Halloween Movies I have reviewed in the past, with more to come in the days ahead:

That first painting you have up there is at the Detroit Institute of Art and it's even creepier to see it in person.

Dude.

Army of Darkness, Nightmare before Christmas AND Corpse Bride all in one recommendation?

I heart you, man.

In a completely platonic way.
