The Scaredy-Cat’s Guide To Halloween Movies
Because hardcore horror makes us crap our pants, too. We've got your not-so-spooky Hallow's Eve all planned out, right here.| October 31, 2016
We will be the first to admit that we’re absolutely crap at horror movies. Zombies? Sure. Vampires? Not a problem. Monsters? Depends on the type, but usually okay. Masked killers? Pushing it a bit, but if we’re watching it in the day, we’ll survive. Anything more than that and you’ll find us crouched in a fetal position, eyes closed with fingers in our ears.
Does that mean that we, scaredy-cats of the world, should be excluded from Halloween marathons? NO. Not at all. We still find it within ourselves to enjoy a gothic comedy-horror or two. Nothing like turning the horror genre on its head and getting a laugh out of it along with a couple of squeals. Plus, if iMDb’s many lists are anything to go by, it seems that horror-comedies rank high among the horror fans of the world as well. Horror-comedies still qualify as horror, people!
If you’re ditching the costume parties and trick-or-treating for a night in this Hallow’s Eve – or if you’re done with Stranger Things 2 and itching for more PG horror – we ask you to grab a cushion, all the candy you can find and start hooking up your laptops to your television screens, because you’re in for the non-scary Halloween movie marathon of your life. We’ve got crazed scientists, demon barbers, murderous plants, talking skeletons, child kidnappers, zombies, unsatisfied ghosts, ditzy witches and vampires on the menu. There will be blood and some hacking and slashing, but if we can take it, then so can you. (Though, if you want nightmarish tales that hit much closer to home, there’s always Black Mirror.)
