Haunted houses and vampires and zombies are year round in my house (well, apartment,) so I don’t exactly need an excuse to curl up with a scary story. But indulging during the month of October is different; the world just feels better suited for watching horror movies.
It’s been a while since I’ve enjoyed any of the not-so-creepy classic horror DVDs lined up on my shelf. And there’s no better time to dust off the plastic cases and revisit a bunch of old favorites.
In a perfect world, what movies do I want to watch this month? Oh, just a few…
- The Wolf Man
- Dracula, Dead and Loving It
- The Black Cat
- White Zombie
- Bowery at Midnight
- Spooks Run Wild
- The Mummy
- Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein
- Paranormal Activity
- Bag of Bones
- Son of Frankenstein
- The Babadook (Netflix)
- Young Frankenstein (Netflix)
And with me being me, there’s bound to be a bit of live-tweeting while I’m curled up on the couch and watching these movies.
Now I’m not so out of it as to think that I’ll get through all the movies I want to watch. Between a full time job and going to school full time, I barely have time to do laundry and squeeze-in half an hour of writing a week. But these movies will serve as a creepy little carrot to coax me through the work.
Do you have any must-watch movies this time of year? Or any good (non-gory) horror movies that I should check out?
