Full disclosure: I don't like scary films! So, I looked up Halloween-themed films (and horror films 😱) on the interwebz and compiled this list. It's kind of a mash up of several lists, but the main criterion is, I have actually seen these films.
  1. Psycho (1960) 😱😱😱
    Everything about this film is SCARY! The music, THAT iconic shower scene...
  2. The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975) 😱
    Not scary really! But SO MUCH inspiration for dressing up?
  3. The Omen (1976) 😱😱😱
    Still getting over the trauma of watching this film TBH. And now deeply concerned if I meet anyone called Damien.
  4. Alien (1979) 😱😱
    I didn't want to watch this film but we HAD TO, in film studies.
  5. The Addams Family (1991)
    Not scary, just very funny!
  6. Monsters Inc (2001)
    Not scary, just funny and sweet!
