Six Scary Movies

Scary Halloween Movies
Frightful Films!

If you're clamoring to see a scary movie (or two, or six) this Halloween that won't leave you with after-the-fact problems like not being able to sleep for fear the bogeyman is going to come get you, we've got six spooky recommendations you can watch alone, with family or a couple close friends or show at your Halloween bash - plus video trailers that will show you what you're getting into before you slide the disc into your DVD player.


Remember: While the following flicks are OK for kids 9 and older, be careful about showing them to your younger brothers and sisters - they might be a little too spooky for really little kids. Also, when watching scary movies, let yourself feel frightened - it's fun! But also always keep in mind that it's just pretend. All the actors in the movie are perfectly fine in real life!


Creature From The Black Lagon

The Creature From The Black Lagoon features a scary monster who turns out to be in love! It takes place on the Amazon River where scientists discover a weird creature with gills that doesn't want to be captured. It was a low-budget film in 1954 that has some tense moments and is not too scary. It is 50 years old and still going strong!


The Watcher In The Woods

This Disney movie is spooky but not too spooky. In this film, a teenager whi is staying at an eerie English country house tries to discover what happened to another young girl who disappeared there 30 years ago.


The Private Eyes

This film is a Scooby-Doo-style horror/comedy movie. A fun approach for a Halloween film. The starring comic duo solves a murder in a spooky old house.


The Gremlins

This film manages to be cute and scary but really downright mischievous! (Don't let those Gremlins near water and don't feed them after midnight!) It is a dark comedy and the creatures do turn nasty so beware that this film is filled with mischief, mayhem and murder.


The Monster Squad

All the classic monsters show up in this film with the kids fighting and defeating them! Pre-teens stop Count Dracula when he tries to destroy an anulet. This film is full of fun - and a pretty frightful fate for the monsters!


The Nightmare Before Christmas

Not too sure if this is a Halloween or a Christmas movie, but it is fun for both! Imagine Santa Claus kidnapped and tortured ... that's pretty much the premise of this stop-action animated movie that is part musical, part fantasty, part horror and part comedy. It is a Tim Burton production so that will give you an idea what it is like.
