Celebrating National Horror Movie Day
Happy National Horror Movie Day! We celebrate this day every year on October 23. Today is the perfect day to promote great horror movies if you love a good scare.
Halloween is in the air. It is the spookiest time of year, so it’s the perfect time to watch a scary movie. Is it even Halloween if you don’t get a good fright?
Here are the 5 most famous horror movies:
- The Exorcist (1973) is a classic horror movie that follows the possession of a young girl and the attempts to perform an exorcism on her to remove a demon from her body.
- Halloween (1978) introduced the iconic slasher villain Michael Myers, who follows a babysitter on Halloween night. This iconic horror movie would eventually transition into 12 additional films.
- The Shining (1980) is a movie based on Stephen King’s novel The Shining. The movie tells of a writer who goes mad while taking care of a remote hotel during the winter.
- The Conjuring (2013) is a movie based on a true story by the real-life investigations of paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren.
- Hereditary (2018) is a psychological horror flick that enters the theme of family trauma and the supernatural. Hereditary has received critical acclaim for its unsettling atmosphere and eerie portrayal of characters.
My favorite horror film is the original Friday the 13th AND the entire 13th franchise! I love Jason Voorhees and his trademark hockey goalie mask (Which actually didn’t appear until Part III!) Anyway, you know I’m all for anything creepy and cool! What are your favorite horror films?
