10 Horror Movies you should watch this Halloween
#Horror #genre, one of the most heavily acclaimed loved genre. What is so enjoyable in being scared, really? As the great Neil Gaiman says, “Fear is good in small doses.” So here we go, this Halloween we bring to you some of the best names that go about between horror fans. Grab your popcorns (or treats from trick n treatin’) and watch some of the best horror blockbusters!
Ghosts are scary and all, but deranged murderers are scarier still, for they, in fact, exist. Hush is a thriller which borders on horror at times. A young deaf-and-dumb author, who lives alone in a remote house, faces a killer who wants to kill her just for fun apparently. This film is relentless and never lets up until the very end. This ‘thriller’ will be scarier than most horror films you have seen.
The Shining is based on the equally brilliant book by Stephen King and tells the story of a couple and their son who stay in a particular Overlook Hotel. Things look well until the husband (Jack Nicholson) begins to go absolutely mad and becomes a mindless murderous thug due to the proverbial ‘voices’. The acting is excellent and the movie is iconic.
3.Train to Busan:
In this South Korean film, zombies run like Usain Bolt and possess the stamina of a racehorse. Cramped confines of a train do wonders and well-drawn characters are pretty relatable. The pacing is just right. Bottom line is, if you love zombie movies, you cannot really go wrong with this one.
Sinister is definitely Scott Derrickson’s best movie. An obsessed true crime writer, played by Ethan Hawke, who moves to a new place with his family because a horrible crime was committed there. Of course, he hides this fact from his family. Things begin to happen, his son’s night terrors relapse, his daughter begins to befriend imaginary people who turn out to be not-so-imaginary, after all. Sinister is an innovated movie that does not rely on jump-scares and instead focuses on giving a solid story.
5.World War Z:
Compared to Train to Busan, World War Z was really the first film that gave a global sense to a zombie apocalypse. Sure, we knew that entire world is under the reign of mindless flesh-eaters, but we never really got the idea of the real global scale. World War Z does that and then some.
Ever got scared of your own mirror image? This movie cashes on to that fear and is frighteningly successful in the attempt. It does not really tread any new path, but what it does, it does well. You will be scared to go to the mirrors at your place though. Don’t tell us we didn’t warn you!
Oculus is based on the genre I would call ‘mirror horror’. Directed by Mike Flanagan, the mind behind recent Netflix’s Stephen King adaptation Gerald’s Game, Oculus follows two chronological plotlines of two siblings dealing with the death of their parents and the destruction of their family by the hands of a malevolent entity that lives in, you guessed it, an antique mirror.
8.Let me In:
Let Me In tells the story of an introverted, bullied boy and his new friend – an old vampire that appears in the form of a young girl. Let Me In explores many themes and definitely made for the ‘feels’.
9.The Sixth Sense:
Young Cole Sear is haunted by a dark secret: he is visited by ghosts. Cole is frightened by visitations from those with unresolved problems who appear from the shadows. He is too afraid to tell anyone about his anguish, except child psychologist, Dr. Malcolm Crowe As the truth uncovers, a jolt that awakens them both to something unexplainable. Worth all the time in the world!

Banding together over the course of one horrifying summer, the friends must overcome their own personal fears to battle the murderous, bloodthirsty clown - Pennywise.
