Halloween is just around the corner, and while you may be busy putting together last-minute costumes and trying to find a party to crash, don't forget to give yourself a good scare with a horror flick!
Whether you want to go classic and watch the traditional favorites such as Nightmare on Elm Street or Halloween — the original 1978 one with Jamie Lee Curtis — or if you want to try something new such as Stephen King's It (2017) or Happy Death Day, here are some scary movies and shows you can watch.
The title alone should give you goosebumps. This 2012 horror flick starts off eerily, grabbing your attention within the first five minutes. If you think your brave enough to watch Ethan Hawke uncover the bone-chilling secret behind a haunted house he moves his family into, I suggest you don't watch it alone!
It seems like Saw will live on forever, doesn't it? Well, just in time for Halloween, the latest in the 'Saw' series, Jigsaw, comes out this weekend! Already looking to be a box-office hit? Why not give it a chance and try to figure out if Jigsaw is still alive.
3. A Nightmare Before Christmas
Let's take a break from the gory stuff. Halloween doesn't have to be that scary. If you want to watch something family-oriented that still gives you the feel of the festive fall season, A Nightmare Before Christmas is just right for you. With catchy songs, before-it's-time animation, and a charming storyline, this movie is appropriate for all ages to enjoy.
4. Hocus Pocus
I think it's safe to say that you can't celebrate Halloween and not watch this movie. Hocus Pocus is everything a family Halloween movie should be. From crafty witches to mischievous children, this classic tale is a timeless treasure that everyone can enjoy. Who could top Bette Midler's epic cover of "I Put a Spell on You"? Nobody!
5. Sleepy Hollow
Johnny Depp stars as Ichabod Crane in the Tim Burton 1999 version of Sleepy Hollow. Available now on Netflix, it's not quite terrifying, but it is creepy, as most of Tim Burton films usually are.
6. Stranger Things: Season 2
If you're going to be a homebody this weekend and none of the above interest you, binge-watch the entire second season of Stranger Things. Each episode will make you think you're watching a regular '80s film and give you another good reason to keep the lights on.
