Movies to Watch during Halloween

Many people enjoy horror movies, but which ones are actually worth your time? Which ones will leave you scared for days to come? While there have been many awful horror movies over the years, some of the best are “The Conjuring”, “The Joker”, “It”, “Insidious”, “Sinister”, and “28 Days Later”.

“28 Days Later” was originally released back in 2002, yet it still remains one of the better horror movies. It was the original apocalypse-themed horror movie, and since then, hundreds of apocalyptic movies have been produced using the same ideas to scare people as 28 Days Later did back in 2002. Despite its age, it is still a decent movie.

“Insidious” was unveiled in 2010. When the haunted house themed movie was released, it immediately became a fan favorite. The jump scares are one of its major attractions. However, many viewers found its/the mere $1.5 million budget showing through in the CGI. If you don’t mind some cheesy graphics, but enjoy a lot of jump scares, this is the movie for you.

 “Sinister” was launched in 2012, it aimed to please the crowds with a more “creepy” vibe. Many viewers found it refreshing that it didn’t abuse jump scares and monsters, instead of going for a more classic, creepy vibe. If you appreciate a classic yet modern take on a horror movie, this is the one for you. Junior Max Kim also enjoyed “Sinister”: “It was a pretty good movie, to be honest, it was super creepy and somewhat disturbing at times. It had a good balance of jump scares as well.”

“The Joker” was recently released in the beginning of October and has already made $248 million worldwide. Many viewers of The Joker were shocked by the amount of violence in the movie. Felmon Madronio had similar feelings: “it was very violent, I personally liked it. I went in expecting violence but it was a lot more than I was expecting. Despite that, it was still a great movie.”  

Some of these movies are not for the weak-hearted but that does not mean you shouldn’t watch them. The violence, creepiness, and jumpscares add more to the movie than scaring you. Horror movies in general are all just part of the Halloween spirit.
