Have you ever sat down on the couch, and spent hours flicking through Netflix or Apple TV, film after film, just never finding that one you really want to watch? I bet you have! And I’m sure you don’t want to go through that again, especially during Halloween. So, lucky for you, this article will give you 2 of the best horror films of all time, so that you can sit down – with all your candy – on the 30th of October and enjoy.
First on this list is one of the scariest movies ever made! ‘The Conjuring’! When a family moves into a lake house wanting to live a peaceful new life, things go sideways. Firstly, the family starts to notice small things, like a sound or a bad feeling, but then larger things occur like falling portraits, slamming doors, and unwanted terrifying spirits haunting – the once peaceful – life of these poor folks. So, these frightened individuals look for help. Ed and Lorraine are famous paranormal investigators, so when they hear what is happening to this family, they know exactly what to do. After investigating the terrifying house, and being present in horrifying moments for a week, the couple performs a violent exorcism to try and get rid of the spirits, but does it work?
Second on our list, is another spine-chilling novel, made during the 1980s. You guessed it, ‘The shining’! This frightening story happens in Colorado when a couple and their kid, a small boy, take over a massive hotel during the cold winter. At first, despite the chilling setting, everything is fine, but when the father of the youngster goes crazy, things go seriously wrong. The unwell man suddenly tries to murder his entire family, and with no help whatsoever in the enormous hotel, the little boy and his mom must find ways to survive. Not only is the film already hair-rising with the lunatic man, but the man’s supernatural mental connection with his son takes things to another level. Even though this film might be older, it’s a classic! So, I highly recommend it.
To sum up everything, I hope you enjoy your Halloween and fall in love with these excellent, terrifying, 'hiding under the blanket' movies just like I have!
