Monster Mash

Halloween is a time for knocking on strangers' doors and training your begging skills, slashing evil faces into bad innocent pumpkins, dressing like your favored weirdo (or naughty nurse), and forcing your very little sister craftsman chainsaws to observe videos that will definitely give her nightmares just so you can stay away from staying scared alone (ahem, my siblings).

The moment I got also outdated to trick-or-treat on October 31st each yr, I made a decision the finest way to celebrate the ghoulish holiday was to freak myself out by investing the complete day watching a horror movie marathon--without any unwilling participants.  Above the many years, I've viewed some actually good scary videos like Halloween, and some not-so-good ones.  Not all horror videos are created equally, as there are several sub-genres this kind of as slasher, supernatural, torture, and even comedy.  Personally I desire the classics, but occasionally a current release will make my heart pound with fear (or at least a nervous giggle).     

Right here are 31 scary videos off the top of my head, in no unique purchase, to assistance get you in the mood for the significant fright evening.  Some of these are critically chill inspiring, though other individuals are just critically entertaining (I'm searching at you Freddy!).
