Not everyone finds being scared poop-less by films a lot of fun but they still want to get into the er, spirit of things.
Ratings: W= Not remotely scary really WW= Has it’s creepy moments WWW= Maybe a few scary moments.
Cute, adorable and deadly if you don’t look after him.
This film is just a massive amount of fun! A group of ghost busting guys in New York city.
Fantasy horror at it’s craziest. If you happen to find you are dead or your horrible parents buy a haunted house, then you might need the help of crazy-as-a-box-of-frogs Beetlejuice – I say might.
Zombie babies anyone? I think this film still holds the award for most amount of fake blood used in a film. It’s gory yes, but every seen is played for laughs and it’s too ridiculous to be scary. Directed by Peter Jackson before oddly enough.
Hocus Pocus (1993)
If witches and fantasy films are your thing you will love this.
Yes, this is a kids film with lots of CGI but it’s also a family drama and unexpectedly romantic.
Ginger Snaps (2000)
This cult series of three films get progressively darker but the first is the least creepy. How would you help your sister if she were slowly turning into a teenage werewolf? Nothing like Teenwolf I assure you.
Jennifer’s Body (2009)
So your beautiful best friend has an insidious appetite for men, literally.
Fright Night (2011)
I loved the original film from 1985 and had a huge crush on the vampire neighbour. It looks quite dated now so I’ve included this remake in the list instead. This feels more like a sexy psycho thriller than a horror film, somehow.
To watch the night before Halloween:
People make the mistake of thinking this is a horror film but it’s actually a beautiful tragic love story. A heartbroken man returns from the grave (the night before Halloween) to avenge his fiancés murder. A poignant, violent, noir-fantasy with dark humour.
Now lets get some popcorn started…
