31 Spooky Halloween Movie Recs

31 Spooky Halloween Movie Recs

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! It’s Halloween and that means that it’s a whole month of spookiness and costuming goodness. I’ve loved the month of October in all its haunted glory but previously it was for the costumes and parties, as opposed to the spookiness of the month.

In the last few years, I’ve started getting into horror films and I’ve worked on embracing the genre, despite being a huge scaredy-cat when it comes to watching them. I definitely still have to watch them exclusively at home so I can cover my eyes and hold a pillow or my cat for comfort. Still, I’ve watched quite a few now and so I thought I’d make a list of 31 spooky films that you should check out in the month of October.

These are some of my favourites. There’s a mix of fun as well as genuinely scary films so without further delay, let’s take a look at my list (click on a title to be taken to the trailer):
