The Addams FamilyThey're creepy and they're kooky, mysterious and spooky. They're all together ooky... This is such a classic campy film. It's not particularly a scary film, unless you're an impressionable young child. I just love that they are all their own unique characters and it's just a fun film to watch.
Dawn of the Dead (1978)
Drag Me to Hell
The Evil Dead
Okay, okay, another campy film. I know! But this is such a cult classic! I love the whole series, so I'm going to be naughty and count three films as one. I love all the ridiculousness of these and I can't wait to see what they do with the remake. Hopefully it will keep to the same sense since Sam Raimi.
Land of the Dead
A Nightmare on Elm Street
Shaun of the Dead
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
I tried to narrow it down, which was quite difficult in the end. So there was my top fifteen films that I enjoy watching this time of year (though many of them I could watch all year, and do!). Wondering what ones slipped from the list in favour of the ones above?
Here's my close, but no cigar choices:
~The Craft (This is eery at times. Especially towards the end when Fairuza Balk's feet drag across the floor. It gets me every time.)
~The Nightmare Before Christmas (I know this is a classic for everyone, but it just wasn't enough for me this year.)
~Stay Alive (I'm not a gamer, but even this film creeps me out. The thought behind it is intriguing and the Countess gives me nightmares. It's even 'loosely' based on a true Countess.)
~The Rocky Horror Picture Show (This isn't necessarily Halloween-y, but it's certainly campy enough. Since I watch this film any time of the year, I decided to keep it off the main list.)
~Planet Terror (I love zombie films, and this is such a great one. But, there were a few zombie ones that just mean a little more to me than this. Again, I could watch this any time of the year.)
~Fido (Another zombie film. I love the campy-ness of it as well as the gorgeous setting. I can't help loving a 1950's vibe.)
What are your Halloween time must have films? Are they all scary or do you have a few cheesy ones thrown in there like me?
