Horror Fans, I Need Your Help!

I’m calling on all horror fans to give me suggestions of what to watch for October. With September around the corner, it won’t be long until we are in the month of Halloween. Last year I watched a lot of horror films that I hadn’t seen before, crossing off classics like The Omen and Texas Chainsaw Massacre off my list. This year I want to see the scariest, strangest, most obscure films you know.

If you have a favourite horror film that you feel doesn’t get the attention it deserves, then let me know in the comments. I’m going to be watching as many horror films as possible through-out October. I don’t care if it’s a silent era film (Nosferatu is a great film, but I’ve seen that one) a foreign art house film, 1950s B-Movie, a mainstream Hollywood outing or anything in between. Even if you think it’s really obvious, I may not have seen it. I still haven’t seen Child’s Play.

So far I’m planning on watching, Carrie, House (The Japanese film, not the unrelated American one), Kuroneko, The Changeling (1980) and Jacob’s Ladder. Probably Child’s Play as well, since I’ve mentioned it.

If you’ve seen any of these, let me know and give me your suggestions.

Thank you in advance and I’m looking forward to reading your suggestions,

    Nice plan! Child’s play is a must. :-)) First one that popped in my mind is Martyrs.

    Under the Skin, Oculus, Martyrs (2008), Midsommar (director’s cut is better than the theatrical in my opinion), The Babadook, some suggestions

    Not to toot my own horn but I have done a horror movie marathon every year for the month of october. You can see each marathon on my blog posts and cover the golden, silver and bronze age of horror. I also throw in a few 90’s films and even some modern ones in there.

    I loved all types of movies as a child and used to own my own video collection. Horror was my favorite. I have seen “millions and billions” of movies throughout my lifetime. There are too many to name.

    But for a real good thriller watch 10 To Midnight-Charles Bronson-You won’t be disappointed (1983).

    For nostalgia why don’t you try Sleepaway Camp (1983). The Stepfather (1987). Scream For Help- more of a thriller suspense (1984).
    One Dark Night (1983).

    Return Of The Living Dead- excellent horror and comedy mixed together. Night Of The Creeps (1986). The Hidden (1987).

    April Fool’s Day (1986). Creepshow part 1, 2 and 3 (1982) 1987) (2006). Children Of The Corn (1984). Body Double (1984). Silver Bullet (1985).

    Chopping Mall (1986). Killer Party (1986). Angel Heart (1987). The Believers (1987). The Serpent And The Rainbow (1988). Silent Night Deadly Night (1984)

    The Curve- really good dark comedy thriller.

  6. Well I’m really late to this train, but I’d love to share with you my October calendar over at The Void of Celluloid. I’ve paired every movie thus far with a double feature, drinks and snacks. 🙂
