I'm seriously into Halloween, it's basically my favourite time of the year. I was just wondering what are some of your must-watch movies during this season?

Here are some of mine:

Whatever I think will scare my imoutos the most. Then, that is when they are in most desiring of the Onii cuddles, to which I shall caress them with throughout the night.



I do not have many horror movies I watch annually, though I am showing a bit more interest in documentaries on urban legends, or movies based on those.

Kind of related to this, I have been listening to a podcast called Casefile True Crime, which is hosted by an anonymous man from Australia (truly great podcast by the way). He mainly deals with true crime, but touches on supernatural phenomenons from time to time. I was listening to his episode on Anneliese Michel, a 23 year old German woman who had temporal lobe epilepsy since her teens, which lead to her development of mental disorders. This happened in the 60s/70s, back when mental illness wasn't taken seriously at all. She saw many doctors at first, but none were really able to help her, forcing her to stay on epilepsy medications that caused severe side effects that often worsened her psychological condition. Her parents gave up on the doctors all together. Rather than seeing this as a medical issue, her parents and Catholic priests saw this as a possession and assumed she was inhabited by demonic entities. She was no longer eating or drinking liquids, and her parents never brought her to a hospital. She died of emaciation and her parents and the priests were charged with negligent homicide for failing to intervene and save Anneliese's life. I was really fascinated by the case, and subsequently chose to watch The Exorcism of Emily Rose, as the movie is based on this story. Both the podcast and the movie made for a good listen/watch for October.

I figure many people must already be familiar with this case, but I wasn't extensively informed so I found it rather interesting.

some of my must watch: The Exorcist, The Thing, Christine, 13 Ghosts, something to do with the Aliens franchise and I've found new love in new things such as Sharknado franchise and Stranger Things.

It's not a movie, but I'm watching the first few episodes of Stranger Things right now and it's pretty freaking suspenseful. The first time I saw it, I had a friend with me. Now I'm all alone and low key terrified.

It's not that scary, but I really enjoy seeing Over the Garden Wall around this time too. It's a tamer one, good for showing kids, but still spoopy.

Halloween has always been my favorite holiday of the year. Of course since I'm not a kid anymore, I don't get to dress up and go from house to house asking for free candy without odd looks or people calling the police, it's mostly become just another regular day.
I don't usually go out of my way to watch horror movies like I used to on Halloween. Usually anymore I'll just watch what's on or easiest to get into.

Some of the movies I watch every year around that time:
Nightmare on Elm Street
Ghostbusters
The Nightmare Before Christmas
IT
Friday the 13th
Evil Dead
Dead Alive

I used to start my Halloween movie viewing in late August. I'm kind of year round horror now. So, it's a bit harder to distinguish the Halloween season. That being said, I do watch Hocus Pocus every year on Halloween night itself. Additionally, I'll be doing a full rewatch of the Halloween franchise in honor of the new film (even though I can't say I'm super excited based on the trailer so far).

Other watches I'll prolly toss include:

Hell House LLC - I love going to a good Haunt around Halloween, and this movie is a solid take on that.
Trick r Treat - A personal top favourite.
Evil Dead + Remake - not really directly tied to Halloween, but I like it as a fun double feature.

Otherwise, I'll just be doing my normal thing where I watch through unseen horror films continuously, with maybe a couple rewatches thrown in.

Props for listing The Blackcoat's Daughter. I fucking love that movie so much, and I hope more people see it. Excited for Oz Perkin's next film?
