If you're going to be staying in tonight, and you don't want to watch Halloween 6 again, here are a couple of movies to get you into the Halloween spirit and scare the hell out of you...or maybe this CAT will scare you!
1. EDEN LAKE
This film starts out innocently enough--don't they all? A couple decide to spend their vacation at remote lake, things are nice and peaceful until they are interrupted by some obnoxious, chavy teens. After Steve (Michael Fassbender) accidentally kills their dog, after the teens had stolen their Jeep, the kids decide to take their revenge and terrorize the couple. I won't tell you anymore than that. Jenny, played by Kelly Reilly, is one to root for.The ending is brutal and unfair. So if you're in the mood for something that will keep you on the edge of your seat,watch this!
If you want to see more of Michael Fassbender, check out BLOOD CREEK too!
2. THE LOVED ONES
I was pleasantly surprised by the Independent Australian horror movie Wolf Creek when I watched it a couple of years ago. With The Loved Ones, we get another Aussie movie about terror, this time involving a lonely girl named Lola (Robin McLeavy) and the object of her unwanted desire, Xavier (Brent Mitchell). The lesson here might be to not turn down the creepy quiet girl when she asks you to a dance. That might not matter when she decides to keep you trapped in her house, forced to play the king to her maniacal queen. Brent Mitchell is a cutie pie and you'll definitely be rooting for him, and all of his loved ones.
Based on the short story by Clive Barker, Dread will make you question your fears, and if you'll ever be able to face them. This movie stuck with me a while after I watched it, and I will never be able to look at a steak the same way again. Starring Twilight's Jackson Rathbone, I would watch this one with a friend. Preferably one you trust.
4. DEAD SNOW
I love zombies, more than I probably should. So before catching AMC's The Walking Dead, watch a group of friends battle Nazi zombies in the snow. It's that simple, and that's what makes it so great! If you don't mind subtitles, this will be a lot of fun. Equal parts Evil Dead and Night of The Living Dead, this Norwegian horror comedy will make you flinch next time you hear footsteps in the snow.
5. Trick r Treat
What's Halloween without a movie about the creepy things that happen on All Hallow's Eve. Four stories center around what a child, or a demon, named Sam witnesses in a small town on Halloween night. There are rules on Halloween, like not blowing out your jack-o-lantern before the end of the night, and always having candy for the kids that come trick or treating.
If you break those rules, well, you'll just have to watch. The opening story with Leslie Bibb and the "Surprise Party" story with True Blood's Anna Paquin, are the best, but the whole thing is a lot of Creepshow-type fun.
BOO!! (Oh, and just in case you get a weird phone call tonight--IT'S COMING FROM INSIDE YOUR HOUSE!!)
