Must Watch Halloween Movies!
Many people look forward to the yearly tradition called Halloween. Fortunately, The Halloween store in Calgary is happy to report that the backdrop, excitement, and spirit of the occasion can be felt throughout the year through the viewing of certain classic films.
Must Watch Halloween Movies
Naturally, The Halloween store in Calgary realizes that everyone holds individual tastes when referencing movies. That said, there is an exclusive list of films both critics and fans alike laud for being occasion-appropriate classics, which often includes:
"Nosferatu" is widely thought of as the first truly scary movie. This silent classic produced during the 1920's is a take on the famed Bram Stoker novel "Dracula." The star Max Schreck and director F.W. Murnau brings this frightening adaptation to life in a way that turned this film into a cult favorite.
Night Of The Living Dead
The 1968 classic "The Night Of The Living Dead" is a prelude to the noted Zombie Apocalypse phenomenon to come in later years. This time-tested horror movie chronicles a gory collection of flesh-eating monsters pursuing a handful of living souls trapped and scared out of their wits.
Director George A. Romero and stars Judith O'Dea and Duane Jones are praised to this day for making this go-to Halloween film a favorite at the time of its release and in modern times.
This 1978 classic and original in a series of countless sequels and is often thought of as one of the first films incorporating the theme of revenge against the backdrop of Halloween.
After being institutionalized 15 years prior for his sister's murder, slasher bad guy Mike Myers emerges to avenge his captors and continue on his path of death and destruction. Other notable performances include famed actor Donald Pleasence and a young Jamie Lee Curtis.
Famed Director John Carpenter still receives praise for guiding what many industry insiders maintain is the father of all slasher movies.
The Blair Witch Project
"The Blair Witch Project" is often thought of as one of the most well-executed indie films of all time.
The film centers around the actual disappearance of three college students who headed off to the woods of rural Maryland to execute a documentary focusing on a supernatural spirit known as the Blair Witch.
What started out as fun and games quickly turns into a horrific, frightening nightmare for characters and viewers alike. Many share the opinion that this film is truly unforgettable and will leave viewers thinking and recalling long after they experience it.
The movie was directed by Eduardo Sanchez and Daniel Myrick and stars Heather Donahue, Joshua Leonard, and Michael C. Williams.
