1.  It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown -  Ok this one it’s scary but it doesn’t seem like October or Halloween if you don’t watch this one!


2. Halloween -  Yup, I’m talking about the original one with Jamie Lee Curtis.  I think of this movie when it gets cold and I take out my knitting stuff.  If you’ve seen it you know why!

3.  The Shining -  Yes another oldie but what’s not scary about a large empty old hotel resort.   REDRUM!

4. Poltergeist – While this movie is only rated PG. I think it’s the things you can’t see that are the scariest.

5. The Haunting in Connecticut – So the house you just bought use to be a mortuary, no big deal right!?

6. The Sixth Sense – “I see dead people.” If it wasn’t for this movie we might not have this catch phrase. Regardless it is a movie that will give you goosebumps.

7. As Above, So Below – I had no idea what this movie was about when I watched it but oh it’s creepy for sure!

9. The Amityville Horror – Can’t be Halloween without a real haunted house!
