10 Films You Should Watch This Halloween

I don't really celebrate Halloween as a holiday - I've never been Trick-or-Treating and I don't dress up. The only things that excite me about this time of year is the paranormal side of things and the fact that it's a great excuse to watch some horror films! So, with Halloween fast-approaching, I have compiled a list of films that I'd recommend you watch this Halloween!

[Rec] - Spanish found-footage film, where a TV reporter and her camera man stumble upon a virus outbreak which is much more sinister than they could've imagined.
28 Days Later - 28 days after the rage virus outbreak, Jim wakes up in a hospital bed; the hospital and, it seems, the whole of London, is deserted... or so it appears. Follow Jim on his journey of survival.
30 Days Of Night - Set in snow-covered Barrow, Alaska, this small town is plunged into darkness for 30 whole days. This brings with it a gang of blood-thirsty vampires! Will the town's inhabitants survive the month unharmed?
Monster House - In this animated film, it's the eve of Halloween and three teens are determined to uncover the truth about old Nebbercracker's "monster house"!
ParaNorman - In this animation, Norman Babcock can talk to dead people, but no-one believes him. Their small town is threatened by a magical storm that brings back the dead - will the people of Blithe Hollow turn to Norman for help?
The Babadook - If you're not a fan of jump scares, this will leave you impressed. A single mother, struggling to cope with her difficult son, happens across an unusual-looking children's storybook. When she realises the disturbing extent of the story portrayed in the book, she tries to destroy it... but you can't get rid of The Babadook!
The Conjuring - Another one which doesn't rely on cheap jump scares to deliver a fantastic film. Based on true events, this classic haunting story follows Ed and Lorraine Warren - paranormal investigators - who try to help banish the evil spirits that lurk within a family's new home.
The Nightmare Before Christmas - When Jack Skellington, Pumpkin King of Halloweentown, stumbles across Christmastown, he tries to incorporate the idea of Christmas into the annual Halloween celebrations, but he doesn't quite understand the concept of Christmas!
The Shining - Stanley Kubrick's classic horror follows Jack Torrence, who takes on the caretaker role of the Overlook Hotel during the winter. Stationed there with his wife and son, Jack begins work on his novel, but things soon take a sinister twist when they realise that they may not be the only guests at the hotel!
The Thing - John Carpenter's gruesome sci-fi horror is set in the frozen wastes of the Antarctic, where a scientific expedition uncovers something horrific. Tensions are running high and trust is tested to the extremes. Isolated and alone in the harsh winter conditions, will the crew survive?
