Looking for a good scare this Halloween? Or maybe you just want something to play in the background during a party?

THIS IS EVEN SCARIER: The Nexus 6P can’t really be this easy to bend… can it?
Day of the Dead
Nobody does zombie movies like George Romero and Day of the Dead is a wonderfully gruesome successor to the classic Night of the Living Dead.
Scream is a delightfully postmodern horror movie about horror movie conventions. This is horror master Wes Craven at his wittiest.
A true classic of a horror movie that relies on suggestion and slow-boiling suspense to create horror instead of gore. Rosemary’s Baby is worth watching alone for Ruth Gordon’s performance as a disturbingly nosy neighbor with a devilish secret.
The Omen is the classic film whose main monster is… a cute little kid? Yes, really. You’ll have to watch it to learn the details.
A Clockwork Orange
A Clockwork Orange is admittedly a little more sci-fi than horror, although chief droog Alex has proven to be a very popular Halloween costume over the years. Director Stanley Kubrick is at his peak in this movie, which might be the best film he ever made.
From Dusk Till Dawn
From Dusk Till Dawn, Quentin Tarantino’s take on the vampire flick genre, is equal parts gruesome and hilarious. Cheech Marin’s vulgar performance in particular is a treat.
Silence of the Lambs
Not every monster is supernatural and Silence of the Lambs shows that serial killers can be just as scary as werewolves, vampires or ghosts.
