The Wolfey Halloween Must Watch List — The Classics
It’s my favorite time of year! Halloween is the time where I’m glued to my couch watching my favorite freaky flicks! Here’s my top classic scary flick picks!
#1 Halloween – 1978 starring Jamie Lee Curtis and Donald Pleasence. Directed by John Carpenter. I don’t think I need to explain this choice. IT’S HALLOWEEN! I always watch Halloween: Resurrection too. I enjoy laughing at Busta Rhymes and Tyra Banks acting skills!
#2 Psycho – 1960 Starring Anthony Perkins and Janet Leigh. Directed by the legendary Alfred Hitchcock. Psycho is one of my all time favorite movies. I love Alfred Hitchcock’s work. He uses extreme camera angles, lighting and contrast to create a freaky ambiance and that’s without mentioning the acting or plot! If you havent seen the grandfather of all slashers yet, DO IT…or else.
#3 Dawn of the Dead – 1976 Starring David Emge and Ken Foree. Directed by George A. Romero. ZOMBIES, ZOMBIES, ZOMBIES!!!! You can’t go wrong with some brains on Halloween! George A. Romero made the zombie genre so my fellow ‘walkers’ pay homage the lord of the zombies before you watch the new season of The Walking Dead this sunday.
#4 Carrie – 1976 Starring Sissy Spacek, Amy Irving, Nancy Allen and John Travola. Directed by Brian DePalma. Based on the novel by Stephen King. It’s not Halloween without a little hometown spook from Stephen King! I’m a fan of the movies that are born from the pages of a Stephen King novel. Misery, Pet Cemetery, The Shining, Children of the Corn, The Thinning and IT are all on my favs list but Carrie is the perfect storm of scary, weird and WTF all at the same time.
#5 Hellraiser 1987 - Starring Doug Bradley and Andrew Robinson. Written and Directed by Clive Barker. If you need a good ‘What the heck am I watching?’ movie this is it! Hellraiser is about as sci-fy as I’ll go. I think I needed therapy after I saw this movie…it was worth it! Believe it or not Momma Wolfe was the first to recommend this film to me. Aw thanks mommy! By the way mom the co-pay from the therapist is being sent to you and dad.
Those are my top classic Halloween picks! I’ll have more freaky movies to share with you as we get closer and closer to Halloween! BOO!
