15 Scary Movies To See Before Halloween

As Jack was going through the Monster Men files, he found this episode that we had filmed and somehow forgotten. Lucky for us, it’s as timeless as Raquel Welch’s beauty. This time around, we go into the elements that make a wicked horror flick, and reveal our list of 15 must-see scary movies.

And here’s a drinking game you can play while you watch: One shot for every time you hear my cat scratching on the door, and one beer for every candy corn Jack and I eat. Guaranteed, you’ll pass out before you get to the 5 minute mark!

So, what scary movies would make your list?


And a big thank you to everyone who Liked the Amazon page for Evil Eternal and Forest of Shadows. Gotta keep that big mo’ rolling. Share pages when you can for any Samhain horror books and spread the word. There’s a new monster in town, and it’s name is Samhain!

    Thanks for posting this; I’ve been trying to remember to check out one of these, so this helped me out a lot!

    Some thoughts as I watch:

    Excellent point that great writing and great acting don’t tend to occur together in a lot of horror movies. Yep, Psycho is a horror movie. Jeepers Creepers actually scared me; yes, that’s funny – you can laugh. New and original tends to get dismissed, but it’s nice when someone decides to indie produce it so I can see wonderful, different stuff. Jim B. isn’t too sexy to me. Great hat!!! The bobble-headed Dracula trips me out. “Good horror doesn’t need CGI.” – agree. The Blair Witch put your wife in labor?! Birthin’ in style!! The version of the BWP that I saw was bought on a street corner (not me, a friend) and was missing the end! I didn’t see the end until years later. The Shining is great in the original, and I love the book, too. I need to check out the documentary about The Shining .. Room 4(something)?? Hmm. TX Chainsaw Massacre is so creepy – all that stuff hanging from the ceiling, bones, chickens, eek! Great list of movies.

    This was fun! 🙂
