October 22, 2020

Halloween is just about a week away, which means you still have a week to watch as many scary movies as you can! It’s never a bad time to revisit some spooky classics, and there are some that are simply to die for.

Wicker's favorite Horror flick is "Exorcist" and Wilde's absolute fave is John Carpenter's "The Thing."

We have the list of the 25 horror movies you have to see before you die. Some of the best are:


The Bride of Frankenstein” (1935): In this two-for-one spookfest, Boris Karloff reprises his role as Frankenstein’s Monster and Elsa Lanchester is his lightning-zapped hair bride.

Night of the Living Dead” (1968): Without this George Romero original, you wouldn’t have “Walking Dead.”

The Exorcist” (1973): Linda Blair’s iconic performance as a possessed girl with the mouth of a sailor.

Jaws” (1975): Stephen Spielberg’s original summer blockbuster about a killer shark, without which we may not have Shark Week.

Halloween” (1978): John Carpenter’s ultimate slasher starring second generation scream queen Jamie Lee Curtis.

The Shining” (1980): Jack Nicholson axes through a door and delivers his classic line “Here’s Johnny!” in this classic adaptation of Stephen King’s novel.

Little Shop of Horrors” (1986): It’s part musical, part horror movie, for one frightfully good time.

Scream” (1996): Wes Craven’s slasher starring Drew Barrymore is the perfect Halloween date night pick.

American Psycho” (2000): Christian Bale is equal parts handsome and terrifying in this 80s-set adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis’ book.

Get Out” (2017): Jordan Peele’s directorial debut that takes on racial issues in a way that’s changed the scary movie game.
