My Top 5 Halloween Films

My Top 5 Halloween Films
Halloween is one of my favourite occasions this time of the year, I love the atmosphere and the creativity behind it. This year I am wanting to go on a scary late night walk, bake some Halloween-y treats whilst watching a couple of scary films. 

Here are a few of my favourite Halloween films I like to watch.

1. Harry Potter | Even though Harry Potter isn't a typical 'scary film', it does have those dark, Gothic and magically elements about it. It is my favourite film series throughout the entire year but for some reason when Halloween is near I am drawn to watching them all from the beginning. A lot of dark secrets, adventures, magic and creepy creatures! 

2. Edward Scissorhands | I am a huge fan of Johnny Depp films, he has been a part of so many quirky films, this being one of them. This is about a young man who has scissors as hands and freakish appearance. A suburban saleswoman discovers Edward and takes him home, where he falls for Peg's daughter. A lot of light-humour, quirkiness and some darkness too. This is a classic scary film I like to watch, again all year round but, it has those Gothic elements to it that make it a scary film. If I was dressing up this year I'd be tempted to go as Edward.

3. Corpse Bride | An animated film about two families that have arranged their sons and daughters marriage. Whilst Victor is nervous about the ceremony, he practices his vows in a forest, when suddenly a hang drags him to the land of dead. Another light-hearted, quirky, dark film with plenty of action. I really like this film and for it being a PG I still jump at certain scenes!

4. Sweeney Todd | This film is a little bit more gory compared to the first 3 mentioned. Sweeney Todd is based on the infamous story of Benjamin Barker, a barber who owns a shop in London just above his partner in crime, Mrs Lovett. He seeks revenge on those who ruined his life and stole his family. Don't trust Mrs Lovetts pies! I love this film it's very quirky, gory and full of songs to sing along to.

5. Scream | More of a classic scary film, but Scream will always be one of my favourite movies to watch on Halloween. Even though we know what to expect when protagonist gets a phonecall or is home alone, you have to watch them till the end. These are the perfect jumpy, gory and funny scary films to watch on Halloween. There is a series of them now!

These are just some of my favourite Halloween films to watch, as you can tell I don't watch films that'll keep me awake all night. However if you are wanting to watch some really scary, sleepless-night films, here are a few I'd recommend: The Conjuring, Woman in Black, Paranormal Activity and Insidious. All films that have really scared the life out of me!
