Our TOP 10 Halloween Movie Picks


Jon Donahue here, sitting in my hotel room in Berlin (that’s in Germany). They are low key on Halloween around here, so I have to make Halloween my own this year…and by that I mean decorating my room with orange pumpkin lights that I found at the mall and pop in some good scary flicks. Here are my picks for some ghoulish Halloween fun this year (or any year!)…

10.) Hostel – Like I said, I’m in Germany and this flick is gory fun…if you like that sort of thing. Luckily, I’m nowhere near a hostel.

9.) The Monster Squad – What would Halloween be without Dracula, Frankenstein’s Monster, The Creature from the Black Lagoon (gill Man), The Mummy, and the Wolfman?! This one’s got nards!

8.) Shaun of the Dead – Simon Pegg & Nick Frost battle ZOMBIES. Need I say more?

7.) Evil Dead 2: Dead By Dawn – Bruce (“ASH”) Campbell is trapped in a haunted cabin in the woods. Sam Raimi’s horror/comedy masterpiece! Groovy.

6.) Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter – Jason vs. Corey Feldman in what was NOT the final chapter in the series. Long live Jason!

5.) The Thing – Aside from “Halloween”, John Carpenter’s best work. Actually, it’s a tie. Well, then there’s “Big Trouble in Little China”…

4.) Fright Night – Here’s the deal: I LOVE the original. I also LOVE the re-make. Take your pick…BOTH are guaranteed good, bloody FUN!

3.) The Return of the Living Dead – They’re back from the grave and ready to party! My absolute, without a question, FAVORITE zombie flick! 

2.) Halloween – John Carpenter just gets it right with this one. I’m listening to the soundtrack as I type this…

1.) Poltergeist – Yes, Poltergeist. I love everything about this ghost story. I just ordered the sequel on blu from Amazon. 

There ya have it. Ten fun, horrific titles to entertain and…scare you! Happy Halloween!

    Monster Squad is a true favorite, Poltergeist for sure but I’m also fond of the Childs Play movies.
